## Armodue-Hornbostel system

This page says 62edo can serve as a 1/8 tone Armodue-Hornbostel system, but no where on the Xenwiki is it explained what that is.

Armodue-Hornbostel is the Hornbostel temperament that employ the Armodue notation for it resource, destacking intervals like the note '3' more accurate to 6/5, the note '7' like several approximation to Phi (833,0903 Cents) interval, the note '8' rounded toward the Square root of Pi (990,8977 cents) and/or 39/22 ratio and approximing the note '2#' to 22/19 ratio (step 13\62 in this case). Hornbostel contains the note '6' sharper than the middle size 675 cents Armodue esadecafonia self, being the Hornbostel 6th approximation for 34/23, 71/48 or 108/73 ratios. The opposite of Hornbostel is Mávila, which contains 6ths flatter than the middle size 675 cents of Armodue self, accurating the note '8' to 7/4 ratio, the note '3' to 32/27 ratio, the note '7' rounded to 821 cents and the note '2#' approximing to 9/8.

So is this just saying that 35\62 can be used for septimal mavila or hornbostel?

For Hornbostel, of course.

Why "of course?" Going by the numbers on Pelogic family, it works better for septimal mavila than hornbostel.

Mmm, well, the diference between one or other are practically innaudible. But if you want to put septimal mávila, add it. Hornbostel and Septimal-Mávila are a kind of the same thing. Thanks (-;
