6L 1s

From Xenharmonic Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

There are two notable harmonic entropy minima with this MOS pattern. The first is tetracot, in which four generators make a 3/2, and the second is known as roulette7, the seven note albitonic scale for the 2.5.7.11.13 subgroup temperament roulette. (Other temperaments like "luna", "hemithird", and "hemiwürschmidt" have very similar 7-note MOSes.)

The 6L+1s pattern also houses a temperament of the 11th and 13th harmonics, for example L=7 s=4 (46 edo) is such a scale.

Scales of this form are always proper, because there is only one small step.
