Tetracot

Tetracot, in this article, is the rank-2 regular temperament for the 2.3.5.11.13 subgroup defined by tempering out 100/99, 144/143, and 243/242.

It can be seen as implying a rank-2 tuning which is generated by a sub-major second of about 176 cents which represents both 10/9 and 11/10. It is so named because the generator is a quarter of fifth: four generators make a fifth which approximates 3/2, which cannot occur in 12edo. Equal temperaments that support tetracot include 27, 34, and 41 EDOs.

Tetracot has many extensions for 7, 11 and 13-limit include monkey (34&41), bunya (34d&41), modus (27e&34d) and wollemia (27e&34).

See Tetracot family or No-sevens subgroup temperaments #Tetracot for more technical data.

Intervals

Tetracot is considered as a cluster temperament with seven clusters of notes in an octave. The chroma interval between adjacent notes in each cluster represents 40/39 ~ 45/44 ~ 55/54 ~ 65/64 ~ 66/65 ~ 81/80 ~ 121/120 all tempered together.
