Archytas clan

From Xenharmonic Wiki
(Redirected from Progress)
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The archytas clan (or archy family) tempers out the Archytas' comma, 64/63. This means that four stacked 3/2 fifths equal a 9/7 major third. (Note the similarity in function to 81/80 in meantone, where four stacked 3/2 fifths equal a 5/4 major third.) This leads to tunings with 3's and 7's quite sharp, such as those of 22edo.

Overview to extensions

Adding 245/243 to the list of commas gives superpyth; 2430/2401 gives quasisuper; 36/35 gives dominant; 360/343 gives schism; 16/15 gives mother. These all use the same generators as archy.

50/49 gives pajara with a semioctave period. 126/125 gives augene with a 1/3-octave period. 28/27 gives blacksmith with a 1/5-octave period. 686/675 gives beatles, splitting the fifth in two. 250/243 gives porcupine, splitting the fourth in three. 4375/4374 gives modus, splitting the fifth in four. 3125/3087 gives passion, splitting the fourth in five.

Superpyth

Main article: Superpyth

In the 5-limit, superpyth tempers out 20480/19683. This temperament has a fifth generator of ~3/2 = ~710¢ and ~5/4 is found at +9 generator steps, as an augmented second (C-D#). It also has a weak extension, bipyth (10cd & 22), tempering out the same 5-limit comma as the superpyth, but with a half-octave period and the jubilisma (50/49) rather than the Archytas comma tempered out.
