5L 7s, also called p-chromatic, is a 2/1-equivalent (octave-equivalent) moment of symmetry scale containing 5 large steps and 7 small steps, repeating every octave. 5L 7s is a child scale of 5L 2s, expanding it by 5 tones. Generators that produce this scale range from 700¢ to 720¢, or from 480¢ to 500¢. 5L 7s represents the chromatic scales of Pythagorean/schismic and superpyth, the former being proper but the latter improper until expanded by 5 more notes, producing superpyth[17]. Such scales are characterized by having a small step (diatonic semitone) that is smaller than the chroma (chromatic semitone), the reverse of 7L 5s.

The two distinct harmonic entropy minima are, on the one hand, scales very close to Pythagorean such that 64/63 is not tempered out, such as the schismatic temperaments known as Helmholtz and Garibaldi, and on the other hand, the much simpler and less accurate scale known as superpyth in which 64/63 is tempered out.

## Modes

The modes are named by Eliora after Chinese zodiac animals. 5L 7s is the opposite mos to 7L 5s, named after a Western concept, Gregorian months, therefore this mos scale has Eastern nomenclature.
