Archytas clan

(Redirected from Quasisupra)
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; 6860/6561 gives ultrapyth; 33614/32805 gives quasiultra; 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

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.

Sixix

See also: Dual-fifth temperaments #Dual-3 Sixix

Sixix is related to the kleismic family in a way similar to the one between meantone and mavila. In both cases the generator is nominally a 6/5 and the complexity to generate major and minor chords is the same, but in sixix it is tuned extremely sharply, to the point where the 3rd and 5th harmonics are reached by going down instead of up, inverting the logic of chord construction.
