rework of table(s)

Great idea to split them, much more helpful now :) Thanks, spt3125!

- xenwolf May 28, 2014, 02:36:47 AM UTC-0700


I agree too with that changes !

- Osmiorisbendi May 28, 2014, 11:05:12 AM UTC-0700


great, glad you like :)

- spt3125 May 29, 2014, 06:21:34 PM UTC-0700


39

39, which is less than six cents sharp, quite a bit less sharp than 22, belongs on the list of "reasonably good" fifths.

- genewardsmith July 20, 2011, 05:02:51 PM UTC-0700


ok

- Osmiorisbendi July 21, 2011, 12:30:34 AM UTC-0700


I don't understand Gene's revert of JosephRuhf's edit. 39-EDO only has one circle of fifths, since 23 is coprime with 39.

If anything, 39-EDO should be in the first list, and not in the second.

- Sarzadoce September 23, 2012, 05:16:47 PM UTC-0700


Sorry, I thought it was saying 39 had more than one circle of fifths. Also, I should mention "so there" was not commentary, but an artifact of space limitations. I was cut off.

- genewardsmith September 23, 2012, 06:05:06 PM UTC-0700


Hahahahaha that is hilarious. Gene meant to be like "so there are N circles of fifths..." but the software made it sound like he was saying "so there!"

- keenanpepper September 26, 2012, 03:07:18 PM UTC-0700


Red edo links in the table...

...should net be removed, if the (future) pages are referenced more than once (from the edo page itself). You can check this by looking on the 'Backllinks' option in the 'page' menu of the non existing page.

for example look at

http://xenharmonic.wikispaces.com/page/links/128edo

Best regards :)

- xenwolf March 25, 2011, 03:33:43 AM UTC-0700


I see no sense in having a link if the page behind it does not exist at all. If a certain EDO is important, there will sure be informations about it that can be written on its page.

- hstraub March 25, 2011, 06:01:32 AM UTC-0700


Hi hstraub,

the idea is that we increase the probability to get new articles created that are really needed is higher if they are listed on such a prominent place. BTW: It's not I who reverted your changes, please have a look on the article history.

ps. I use to format interesting topics into links. I ask for an deeper explanation of the background this way.

edo classification

What do you think: does it make sense to classify this lot of edos by size?

  • macrotonic
  • microtonic
  • commatic
  • nanotonic

...or something else?

- xenwolf March 23, 2011, 05:58:48 AM UTC-0700


What about this bound:

Macro: 0 to 16

Micro: 13 to 55

Comma: 31 to 612 (as 31edo uses diesis and 612edo uses schisma)

Nano: 218 to 15601

Accurate: 22, 34, 41, 53

Inaccurate: 21, 25, 28, 30, 35 (these temper out limma or apotome)

- PiotrGrochowski August 12, 2016, 02:12:03 AM UTC-0700


Accurate: 22, 34, 41, 53 because they are good in 5-limit and don't temper out 81/80

- PiotrGrochowski August 12, 2016, 02:12:53 AM UTC-0700

Why it makes a double post?

- PiotrGrochowski August 12, 2016, 02:13:16 AM UTC-0700


Lower bound:

Macro: 0 to 12

Micro: 17 to 30

Comma: 56 to 217

Nano: 613 to 15601

- PiotrGrochowski August 12, 2016, 02:22:43 AM UTC-0700


MacroEDD: 0 ~ 17

PluscuamEDD: 14 ~ 57

MicroEDD: 46 ~ 667

CommaEDD: 306 ~ 15601

NanoEDD: 6079 ~ ∞

My suggerence, dears (-;

- Osmiorisbendi August 12, 2016, 05:03:32 PM UTC-0700


I think comma should start at 31~56 not 306, as 31edo bases on diesis and 55edo can be used for guitar that it may belong in micro...

No meso or pluscuam categories!

- PiotrGrochowski August 13, 2016, 03:23:35 AM UTC-0700

- PiotrGrochowski August 13, 2016, 03:23:36 AM UTC-0700


And why not Pluscuam/Meso?

For example, 23-EDD is not sufficiently "micro" acoustically.

Pluscuam/Meso is precisely a type of classification for a top-limit fretted instruments.

For me, 57-EDD represents an extreme umbral for fretted guitar.

46-EDD begins to be very tiny intervals by ear, adequate starting as 'Micro'.

- Osmiorisbendi August 13, 2016, 11:20:56 AM UTC-0700


Macro: 1-11

Micro: 13 and on

Fine: 22 and on

Finer: 34 and on

- PiotrGrochowski June 09, 2017, 11:52:35 AM UTC-0700


Hello Titim Deft,

nice to hear from you. :)

I came to this question, when I thought about the extreme small steps in ~250edos and the usability of a cromatic scales from ~10edos to ~30edos (at ~50edo and above there isn't this chromatic feeling).

I relatively agree with you concerning the distribution. I find the borders should be less strict, the edo's fitness for a particular purpose does not disappear suddenly bejond one of these borders. What about something like this:

  • 1edo ~ 18edo be MACROTONALS
  • 12edo ~ 60edo be MICROTONALS
  • 40edo ~ 250edo be COMMATONALS, and
  • 200edo ~ 15601edo be NANOTONALS

The borders and also the names could (and should!) be discussed some more. Are you member on the yahoo group? (I'm not) Do you see any chance to discuss it there?

Best regards!

- xenwolf March 24, 2011, 01:02:03 AM UTC-0700


Hi mr. PEU (again) (:

So, you have the idea of 'Limit-Range' for separate those groups of EDOs. Is not bad the idea, but i insist in the inmediately Limit that separates MACROTONALS of the MICROTONALS; that is:

  • 1edo ~ 16edo= MACROTONALS, and
  • 17edo ~ upper= MICROTONALS.

Personally, i don't feel 17edo like a "Macrotonal", Because 17edo represents, in esense, the Low Limit for 1/3-tones (That 'Tone' that vary between 151 ~ 216,7 Cents [Ratios 12/11 until 17/15]{but in some cases you can 'stretch out' the tone between 25/23 until 25/22 for the 'Tone'}); In many cases, I based with respect the equal divisions for these 'Tones', and the 11edo until 16edo FITS with that setting.

And now, with respect the others EDOs, this should be the 'way':

  • 17edo ~ 55edo be MICROTONALS (because 55edo is the highest limit for fretting a guitar of 26 Inches (660mm) with 94 frets on the neck (that is equivalent to 20,5 frets in 12edo).
  • 40edo ~ 289edo be COMMATONALS (because 289edo supports very accurate the 1253/1250 Ratio (or Comma)); and
  • 218edo ~ 15601edo be NANOTONALS (Particulary I choose 218edo, because this EDO contains with much accurate the Ratios 7/4, 11/8, 9/7, 8/7, 9/8, 10/9, 11/10, 17/16 and very interesting accurate to the Pi Ratio [1981,7954 Cents Pi ; 1981,6514 Cents the 360\218edo]. 218edo contains a 'possible Comma' which is the Ratio 65207/65000). The size of 1\218 is 5,5046 Cents, but you can use the size of 5,5 Cents like a approximation too).

I hope that the rest of the Microtonal (or Ekmelic) people can be agree with this order.

Greetings (:

- Osmiorisbendi March 24, 2011, 02:52:28 PM UTC-0700


I like your Numbers, the limits I gave were only random examples (except the 50edo experience).

Ok, your macro-micro border I would like to question. What do you think about

 MACRO <= 12edo < MICRO

it categorizes all edos with steps finer than a semitone as microtonal - in my opinion this hits best the common sense.

Best regards!

- xenwolf March 25, 2011, 03:28:48 AM UTC-0700


Ok. If is for the common sense i agree.

So the limits would be like a:

  • 1edo ~ 16edo MACROTONALS, and
  • 13edo ~ upper MICROTONALS

Greetings (:

- Osmiorisbendi March 25, 2011, 12:50:26 PM UTC-0700


Sounds good to me :)

What do you think: is such a classification from your point of view also acceptable for other Xenharmonics?

Best :)

- xenwolf March 25, 2011, 01:01:42 PM UTC-0700


i guess

i am sure

(:

- Osmiorisbendi March 25, 2011, 01:45:43 PM UTC-0700


We've already said 1-11 is macrotonal elsewhere on the Xenwiki so we should stick with that.

- genewardsmith March 28, 2011, 05:06:55 PM UTC-0700


Hello Genewardsmith,

(1) How would you classify 12edo then? Micro? Or is there a MESO category?

(2) What do you think about overlapping usability properties (compared to strict categories)?

(3) What do you think about the classification at all? (I see very different qualities in, for example, 11edo and 359edo)

- xenwolf March 29, 2011, 12:15:09 AM UTC-0700


Meso would be fine by me. Could run 12-22, I suppose.

- genewardsmith March 29, 2011, 08:58:01 PM UTC-0700


so we are here:

  • MACRO 1 to 11
  • MESO 12 to 22
  • MICRO 17 to 55
  • COMMA 40 to 250
  • NANO from 200 on

Would a (first draft) diagram illustrate this better?

BTW: I find the strict border between MACRO and MESO not so good. What do the xenharmonic practitioners think about it?

- xenwolf March 30, 2011, 12:08:05 AM UTC-0700


Why not ordened the EDO pages each 25 places?

- Osmiorisbendi September 02, 2011, 07:06:34 PM UTC-0700


What about this bound:

Macro: 0 to 16

Micro: 13 to 55

Comma: 31 to 612 (as 31edo uses diesis and 612edo uses schisma)

Nano: 218 to 15601

Accurate: 22, 34, 41, 53

Inaccurate: 21, 25, 28, 30, 35 (these temper out limma or apotome)

- PiotrGrochowski August 12, 2016, 02:12:02 AM UTC-0700


Hi, mr. PEU (:

I think the same thing.

I guess that would be:

  • 1edo ~ 16edo be MACROTONALS
  • 17edo ~ 52edo be MICROTONALS
  • 53edo ~ 253edo be COMMATONALS, and
  • 254edo ~ 15601edo be NANOTONALS

Maybe considering too the 'FEMTOTONALS', being upper than 15601edo.

Greetings !!!'!!!!' [FOREVER ARMODUE]
