2.5/3.9/7 subgroup of Sensi

The 2.5/3.9/7 subgroup version of sensi, the one which tempers out 245/243, is one of the best temperaments ever. It's simple, effective, and it shows up all over the place. Most notably, it shows up in 11-EDO and 8-EDO (!!!). The fact that it exists in 8-EDO also makes 8-EDO very -USEFUL-, because you now have this chord to counterbalance the much darker diminished chord, which is extremely useful.

A while ago we had a discussion about whether to name subgroup temperaments after the original or not, for example whether porcupine should just be called that, or be called "porkupine" or something similar. What did we decide? Should the 2.5/3.9/7 245/243 temperament also be called "sensi," or should we pick another name for it?

I need to know because I'm working on a bunch of stuff for 8-EDO now, and I don't know what to call the 2 1 2 2 1 MOS in it. I could call it "7-limit father," but why go there when this really neat and decently accurate 2.9/7.5/3 subgroup temperament exists with a great essentially tempered dyadic chord?

Also, if we pick another name for it, it should be something better than just a pun off of Sensi, haha... this one's on the short list.

I vote for a new name; give me one and I'll put it on the Chromatic Pairs page.

Wondering: would Orgone qualify as a Chromatic Pair?

Which EDOs

What are the criteria which chromatic pair is available in wich EDO?

I think score is available for 24edo. Can I add it?

24edo works only if you use the 24df val, <24 38 56 83 90|.

what about describing these scale classification termini:

  • haplotonic
  • albitonic (mega albitonic)
  • cromatic (mega cromatic)

It seems that I better joined the group:
