# The Quartercache

**The Quartercache** is a collection of temperaments of different ranks, including subgroup temperaments, that all temper out the quartisma- the unnoticeable comma with the ratio 117440512/117406179, and a monzo of [24 -6 0 1 -5⟩. Among the members of this family are quartismatic, Altierran, meanquarter, coin, escapismic, dietismic, kleirtismic, doublefour and quarterframe.

## Quartismic

*For extensions, see Quartismic family.*

The 11-limit parent comma for the quartismic family and for the Quartercache is the quartisma with a ratio of 117440512/117406179 and a monzo of [24 -6 0 1 -5⟩. As the quartisma is an unnoticeable comma, this rank-4 temperament is a microtemperament.

## Quartismatic

There are some temperaments in the Quartercache in which the quartisma is tempered out, but without any sort of five-limit representation. This particular temperament is the parent temperament of all such no-fives children, and is referred to as **Saquinlu-azo temperament** in color notation.

## Direct quartismic

Instead of 11-limit, defined directly in the 2.33/2.7/6 subgroup, as the quartisma itself was discovered via a representation where the generator is 33/32 and five of them stack to 7/6. 45edo is an excellent tuning.

## Prequartismic

Named because 3125edo was the only one confirmed for tempering out the quartisma before it's discovery as significance of the difference between 5 33/32s and 7/6. Defined upon the 33/32 (or 64/33) generator in 3125edo, in terms of patent vals it can be described as 3125 & 4991 or 3125 & 1866.
