Re: "Sagispeak"

I'm not aware of any evidence that /kw/ is a difficult consonant combination for the average human. Though I agree that if it collapsed to /k/ we'd have a problem. And we'd also have a problem if some speakers collapsed it to /w/ since that's the language-permitting alternative to /dʒɐt/ ("jat...

Re: A proposal to simplify the notation of EDOs with bad fifths

I like "phidiant"! It's especially nice if you pronounce φ as /fiː/ (same as "fee"), which I don't, but have nothing against it. I think I'd like to borrow that word for my writings on metallic MOS scales, if you don't mind. As it stands, the last paragraph of this section is an...

Re: JI precision level capture zone boundary defining EDA step names (besides tina)

Maybe I'm misunderstanding, but it sounds like you're looking at different EDAs to use directly as scales or tunings. Did I get that right? If so, it's certainly different than how Sagittal is using them in this context, but probably more related than I can easily imagine. This is pretty heady stuf...

Re: developing a notational comma popularity metric

His formula goes like this: $$ E(n) = 1 + \sum_{k=1}^{r} a_k(p_k - 1) $$ Note that it would probably be ideal to get rid of that \(1 +\); it was only really put there so that 1/1 wouldn't be zeroth-grade, and plainly 0 is an acceptable output now that it's just another number. Grade "A" i...

Re: 198edo

Yeah I checked the diagram , but some commas are too complex to approach, such as the :(|(: = 45927/45056. I didn't have any idea how I could find that ratio. Now I see it's the apotome-complement of 22/21. Plus, I thought :)/|\: was :/|\: with a schisma accent. :(|(: is 5/11S (44:45). You meant :(...

Welcome!! (...wait, did someone approve this post before I could see it? or was getting rid of the approval process part of what all this maintenance stuff was about?) 7/5k :|(: This would be either "5:7k" (undirected, with the 5 first because it's smaller; one-sided commas don't have the ...

Re: Naming commas and other intervals: a compilation of various sources

I just asked my wife and my son and his partner if 91 was prime or composite. They are all engineers or software developers (i.e. good at maths). My wife and my son's partner almost immediately said "Prime". One of them even foolishly said, "no doubt". My son was silent for abou...

Exactly or just in-range?

1:φ (833¢) gives us a :||\:N:/|:m6 if the former, assuming that double-sharps and other far-out symbols aren't allowed.

Re: A proposal to simplify the notation of EDOs with bad fifths

That shows up nicely, the cases where we will have to deal with overlaps. In the final product, I think we should always have the "b" EDO as the one that is partly obscured. Yeah, it's just that the order I ended up having it draw the boxes was 5 , 6 , 7 , 8 , ..., 59 , 60 , 61 , ..., 71 ...

Re: A proposal to simplify the notation of EDOs with bad fifths

Up to 72-EDO it includes only 6b , 11b , 18b (9) , 23b , 30b , 35b (5) , 42b (7) , 47b , 59b , 64b (32) , 71b . This is equivalent to setting the EDO × cents-error boundary at 686¢, the tempered perfect fifth of 7edo. (This will never result in a case that's exactly on the line, for the same reason...
