From Xenharmonic Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

These are temperaments with period 1/32 of an octave.

32edo is a wasteland as far as LCJI is concerned, but some of its multiples are good at harmonics, and thus can produce temperaments with period of 1/32 of an octave.

Windrose

The temperament is called windrose because there are 32 cardinal directions commonly assigned to a compass rose. It is defined as the 608 & 1600 temperament. The maximal evenness pattern created inside the period is a 12L 7s, if mapped to a keyboard, which has a 2/3 step ratio and thus offers elegant microtempering that plays with the just noticeable difference.
