# Canou scales

This page lists scales of canou temperament, the rank-3 temperament that tempers out the canousma, 4802000/4782969 = [4 -14 3 4.

## Canou[9]

A 9-note Fokker block for canou temperament.

sLsLLsLsM

where s = 28/27, M = 10/9, L = 2187/1960~2450/2187.

Unison vectors: {175/162, 245/243}.
