7L 2s, named armotonic in TAMNAMS, is an octave-equivalent moment of symmetry scale containing 7 large steps and 2 small steps, repeating every octave. Generators that produce this scale range from 666.7¢ to 685.7¢, or from 514.3¢ to 533.3¢.

Scales of this form are strongly associated with Armodue theory, as applied to septimal mavila and Hornbostel temperaments.

Name

The TAMNAMS name for this pattern is armotonic, in reference to Armodue theory. Superdiatonic is also in use.

Note names

7L 2s, when viewed under Armodue theory, can be notated using Armodue notation.

Theory

Temperament interpretations

Mavila is an important harmonic entropy minimum here, insofar as 678¢ can be considered a fifth. Other temperaments include septimal mavila and Hornbostel.
