3L 2s or antipentic is a 5-tone scale. The only notable low-harmonic-entropy scale for this MOS pattern is sensi, in which two generators make a 5/3. The harmonic entropy of sensi[5] is still fairly high relative to other pentatonic scales, such as meantone. It's also improper.

Name

The TAMNAMS system applies the name antipentic as the scale utilizes opposite step sizes to the “classic” pentatonic scale (2L 3s).

Modes
