4L 15s is a 2/1-equivalent (octave-equivalent) moment of symmetry scale containing 4 large steps and 15 small steps, repeating every octave. 4L 15s is a great-grandchild scale of 4L 3s, expanding it by 12 tones. Generators that produce this scale range from 884.2¢ to 900¢, or from 300¢ to 315.8¢. This scale is associated with myna temperament (pronounced /'maɪnə/), where stacking two bright generators and octave-reducing produces 7/5 (~582¢).
