Well temperaments

I developed well temperaments on 12et and 17et which can be seen here.

I've also been trying to develop one on 19et but no satisfactory result as of now.

Q: What are the difficulties in developing a 19wt?

A: First, unlike 12- and 17et with ambiguous major and minor thirds, 19et's thirds are close enough to 5-limit JI that interpreting them otherwise is like a force. In 12- and 17et, those intervals can represent different ratios in different keys, whereas in 19et, they represent the same ratios better or worse in different keys. The effect isn't satisfactory. Second, the harmonics of 3, 5, 7, and 13 in 19et are all flat, so there's not much room to operate. Third, the ambiguity of 4\19 and 15\19 is an important characteritics, and those should be ambiguous in every key.

Q: What are the solutions?

A: For 19et to have any room to operate, octave stretch must be employed. For 4\19 and 15\19 not deviating too much, hemitwelfth is used as a generator.

Q: It's possible to make octave stretched well temperaments?

A: Yes it's possible. Just one more argument than pure-octave. Issue is I haven't got a satisfactory result.
