## Interval

Semitritave, square root of 3:1, is an interseptimal interval. It divide tritave into two equal parts. Every even-numbered EDT has this interval. It is strongly related to island comma, 676/675, via 13-limit approximant 26/15 and 45/26.

The following table compares selected JI semitwelfth pairs:

Ratios prime limit distance from 950.9775c
125/72, 216/125 5 4.054
7/4, 12/7 7 17.848
140/81, 243/140 7 3.658
512/297, 891/512 11 8.160
1331/768, 2304/1331 11 1.021

19/11, 33/19 19 4.782

## Merciful intonation

Semitritave is an candidate for "practically merciful intonation", because it is $[1; 1, 2, 1, 2, ...]$ in continued fraction, have many gradually proximal ratios, 7/4, 19/11, 26/15, 71/41, ..., makes rich dissonance.

Approximating it by noble number:

• $[1; 1, 2, 1, 1, 1, ...]$ - 942.5 cents, between 12/7 and 19/11.
• $[1; 1, 2, 1, 2, 1, 1, 1, ...]$ - 950.4 cents, between 45/26 and 71/41.
• $[1; 1, 2, 1, 3, 1, 1, 1, ...]$ - 954.6 cents, between 26/15 and 33/19.

## False octave

Assuming the semitritave is available for false octave. Differ from acoustic phi or ed7/4, two equave makes 3:1, well-known equave.

## 2*N-edt

Every even-numbered EDT has semitritave interval. Treating it as equave. Another preferable intervals...

• 5edt - 380 cents major third
• 6edt - 317 cents minor third
• so 30edt?

To do mechanical translation from diatonic scores, "fifth" sound is preferred to be consonance. 7/5 is better, but it makes "3L 2s". 11/8 corresponds to micro- meantone region. (for this purpose, 7/5 ≈ 3\5 of ed7/4 and 7/5 ≈ 4\7 of ed9/5 are both extreme...)

(more to say, 7/5 results in "5L 3s", micro- oneirotonic.)

N EDT Approx. EDO How "pent" Comments
12 24edt 15edo hypopent simple. "Fifth" is 7\12edst ≈ 11/8, off by 3 cents.
18 36edt stretched-23edo anpent This have two "fifth," 11\18edst ≈ 7/5 and 10\18edst ≈ 19/14. 6/5 and 7/6 are good.
19 38edt 24edo hypopent "Fifth" is 11\19edst ≈ 11/8. Can convert easily from 19edo. "minor tenth" (e.g. (19+3+2)\19edst) ~ 2/1. "Major triad" ≈ 16:19:22.
23 46edt 29edo anpent Two "fifth," 14\23edst ≈ 7/5, 13\23edst ≈ 15/11. 13/11 and 15/13 are precise.
26 52edt 33edo hypopent Quadruple BP. Micro- flattone (4434443) can't put to use BP intervals. How is 5424542?
27 54edt 34edo hyperpent Two "fifth," 16\27edst ≈ 18/13 and 15\27edst ≈ 19/14 are precise. Together with 9\27edst ≈ 6/5 and 11\27edst ≈ 5/4, seems good for micro- augene[12].
31 62edt 39edo hypopent "Fifth" is 18\31edst ≈ 11/8, and "wolf fifth" is 19\31edst ≈ 7/5. By the way, "upmajor 3rd" and "downminor 3rd" approximate 17/14 and 17/15, where (17/14)*(17/15) = (11/8)*(1156/1155).
46 92edt 58edo hyperpent Good for micro- sensi. "5/3" ~ 34\46edst ≈ 3/2, "7/5" ~ 22\46edst ≈ 13/10, "6/5" ~ 12\46edst ≈ 15/13, "10/7" ~ 24\46edst ≈ 4/3, ...
69 138edt 87edo amphipent 40\69edst ≈ 11/8 very precise, and coincidentally contains micro- august. (69=31+19+19=33+12+12+12)

## Another periods

$\sqrt{3}^{\sqrt{2}} \approx \varphi^{\varphi}$ (off by 3 cents). However, this does not mean that acoustic phi and semitritave should be used together.
