Kuato Family

Why does Laconic Family link to Kuato Family?

My bad, I fixed it now.

perhaps should be split into two pages

I was considering throwing this into the General Theory mix as well, but I think the opening paragraph is a bit too technical for the average reader to understand (folks in XA chat seem to be in agreement). But given a bit more thought, this seems to be the very thing that we were trying to avoid by doing the General/Mathematical theory split in the first place: it has a precisely worded but rather technical mathematical introduction, but then contains several "tutorial paragraphs" on things like "Why should I care about Regular Temperament?" and so the whole thing is rather bloated.

I need to throw something into the General Theory queue for regular temperaments, and except for the first paragraph this would be great. I suggest one of the following approaches could improve things

- We write a more general-style introduction to match the "tutorial"-ish nature of the rest of the page, and split the mathematical one off into its own page

- We write a more general-style intro and then create a "Mathematical Definition" subheading, and keep it in one page

- I write a general-style intro and keep it on its own page

I think that #1 is ideal because I think that #2 will get bloated, and it doesn't make sense to have a dedicated tutorial page plus a mixed tutorial/math page. What are your thoughts?

Bumping this again for feedback, will otherwise attempt a split sometime later

  1. 1 sounds good

The sensipent comma is listed on scala as the medium semicomma, I edited the page to represent this. This comma is also missing a monzo.

List of Temperaments

Do we really need to list a bunch of 5-limit rank-2 temperaments on this very page? Can't we just link to a catalog of them?

If we must list them, I think shortening the list might be a good idea.

Golden Meantone

Where should Kornerup's golden meantone go? Regards --- peu Jun 1, 2010

It's a tuning choice and could be mentioned as such on meantone or meantone family, but the whole metallic tuning business really rates its own page.

Oh, I started the Discussion on the wrong page, Meantone family was it meant for. Excuse my green question, what is the meaning of metallic tuning business? --- peu Jun 1, 2010
