# Sensamagic clan

The **sensamagic clan** tempers out the sensamagic comma, 245/243, a triprime comma with no factors of 2, ⟨0 -5 1 2] to be exact. Tempering out 245/243 alone in the full 7-limit leads to a rank-3 temperament, sensamagic, for which 283edo is the optimal patent val.

## BPS

*BPS*, for *Bohlen–Pierce–Stearns*, is the 3.5.7 subgroup temperament tempering out 245/243. This subgroup temperament was formerly called the *lambda* temperament, which was named after the lambda scale.

Subgroup: 3.5.7

Comma list: 245/243

Sval mapping: [⟨1 1 2], ⟨0 -2 1]]

- sval mapping generators: ~3, ~9/7

Optimal tuning (POTE): ~3 = 1\1edt, ~9/7 = 440.4881

### Overview to extensions

The full 7-limit extensions' relation to BPS is clearer if the mapping is normalized in terms of 3.5.7.2. In fact, the strong extensions are sensi, cohemiripple, hedgehog, and fourfives.

These temperaments are distributed into different family pages.

- Sensi (+126/125) → Sensipent family
*Hedgehog*(+50/49) → Porcupine family*Cohemiripple*(+1323/1250) → Ripple family*Fourfives*(+235298/234375) → Fifive family

The others are weak extensions. Father tempers out 16/15, splitting the generator in two. Godzilla tempers out 49/48 with a hemitwelfth period. Sidi tempers out 25/24, splitting the generator in two with a hemitwelfth period. Clyde tempers out 3136/3125 with a 1/6-twelfth period. Superpyth tempers out 64/63, splitting the generator in six. Magic tempers out 225/224 with a 1/5-twelfth period. Octacot tempers out 2401/2400, splitting the generator in five. Hemiaug tempers out 128/125. Pental tempers out 16807/16384. These split the generator in seven. Bamity tempers out 64827/64000, splitting the generator in nine. Rodan tempers out 1029/1024, splitting the generator in ten. Shrutar tempers out 2048/2025, splitting the generator in eleven. Finally, escaped tempers out 65625/65536, splitting the generator in sixteen.

## Pycnic

*See also: High badness temperaments #Stump*

The fifth of pycnic in size is a meantone fifth, but four of them are not used to reach 5. This has the effect of making the Pythagorean major third, nominally 81/64, very close to 5/4 in tuning, being a cent sharp of it in the POTE tuning for instance. Pycnic has mos of size 9, 11, 13, 15, 17… which contain these alternative thirds, leading to two kinds of major triads, an official one and a nominally Pythagorean one which is actually in better tune.

## Magus

*For the 5-limit version of this temperament, see High badness temperaments #Magus.*

Magus temperament tempers out 50331648/48828125 (salegu) in the 5-limit. This temperament can be described as 46 & 49 temperament, which tempers out the sensamagic and 28672/28125 (sazoquingu). The alternative extension amigo (43 & 46) tempers out the same 5-limit comma as the magus, but with the starling comma (126/125) rather than the sensamagic tempered out.

Magus has a generator of a sharp ~5/4 (so that ~25/16 is twice as sharp so that it makes sense to equate with 11/7 by tempering 176/175), so that three reaches 128/125 short of the octave (where 128/125 is tuned narrow); this is significant because magus reaches 3/2 as (25/16)/(128/125)^{3}, that is, 2 plus 3 times 3 = 11 generators. Therefore, it implies that 25/24 is split into three 128/125's. Therefore, in the 5-limit, Magus can be thought of as a higher-complexity and sharper analogue of Würschmidt (which reaches 3/2 as (25/16)/(128/125)^{2} implying 25/24 is split into two 128/125's thus having a guaranteed neutral third), which itself is a higher-complexity and sharper analogue of Magic (which equates 25/24 with 128/125 by flattening 5). For more details on these connections see Würschmidt comma.
