- This page is about the project organized on Facebook. For the project organized on Discord, see Tuning of the Month Club.
The Xenharmonic Alliance Monthly Tunings group is a semi-private spin-off of the main Xenharmonic Alliance group. The point of the group is to get xenharmonicists to work on the same tuning, and share ideas, discoveries and music in that tuning. Each month, we all vote on the tuning we want to use.
This page is meant to be an archive of the content produced by that group. Feel free to add your own work to the list.

December 2016: Fibonacci tuning (look on page 22 the doc / 24 of the PDF)
- The Fibonacci sequence is a series of integers that successively add to create the next one in the series, beginning with 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, etc... and thus a Fibonacci horogram shows this sequence in its rings / moments-of-symmetry. The generator for the Fibonacci horogram is 458.359213... cents.

March 2018: Monarda
- Monarda is a 12-note subset of "Tannic" temperament, discovered by Scott Dakota, that is rank-three and observes the 17-limit. 17-limit JI is 7-dimensional, and the commas tempered out are: 273/272, 561/560, 441/440, and 225/224. 7 dimensions - 4 commas = the 3 dimensional tuning. To find temperaments, it's recommended to use the Regular Temperament Finder, instead of the wiki. Check out the FB Monthly Tunings page for specifics.

April 2018: Polaris
- Polaris refers to a 17-note constant structure in 13-limit JI. It can either function as an untempered JI version, or a tempered version, where 352/351 and 364/363 are most often tempered out (144/143 can be tempered out as well).
