Is "hardness" really a synonym?

I think that step ratio turns into hardness only for a few MOS systems: if we look, for example, at 7-tone scales in 17- or 19-EDO, it's not difficult to hear what the term hardness means. --Xenwolf (talk) 17:45, 12 August 2021 (UTC)

Range of values

If we define it as L:s, or L / s, we get values from 1 to . If we instead used L / (L+s), we get a range from 0.5 (½, 50%) to 1.0 (1, 100%) which I'd find easier to understand and more handy for comparison. --Xenwolf (talk) 17:55, 12 August 2021 (UTC)
