# Scale Finder Rough Draft

This is a rough draft for the proposed idea of an online scale-finder, analagous to Graham Breed's temperament-finder. Feel free to add to the outline. Since scales are far more extensive and versatile than temperaments, it is difficult to classify them into a finite number of non-overlapping categories. Hence, I propose we use a form-based search engine, where the user will be displayed a list of scales that match some desired criteria.

Below are the different criteria as well as possible drop-down options (if applicable):

Interval of Equivalence:

- Octave
- Tritave
- Fifth
- etc...

Tuning:

- TOP
- POTE
- Golden
- n/d-comma (e.g. 1/4-comma)
- Woolhouse Optimal

Rank:

- Rank 1 (equal temperaments)
- Rank 2
- Rank 3
- etc...
