8L 2s, named taric in TAMNAMS, is a 2/1-equivalent (octave-equivalent) moment of symmetry scale containing 8 large steps and 2 small steps, with a period of 4 large steps and 1 small step that repeats every 600.0¢, or twice every octave. Generators that produce this scale range from 120¢ to 150¢, or from 450¢ to 480¢. Scales of the true MOS form, where every period is the same, are proper because there is only one small step per period.
