Re: New Olympian diacritics

That diagram is all we have. It shows only upward diacritics. But of course everything mirrors vertically in Sagittal. I agree it's far from clear. But the 5C symbols are the key. The lower row of diacritics are for a note on a staff line. The upper row are for a note on a staff space. So upward min...

Short ASCII

I note that a significant amount of discussion of short ASCII happened in this Sagispeak thread, as the two are closely related:

Re: New Olympian diacritics

I just want to flag here, that if and when we finally get around to nailing down everything Magrathean: I suggest that the ASCII (both short and long) for the various tina and half-tina diacritics should be "l" (lowercase-L) for down and "@" for up, followed by the number of tinas. e.g. 5 tinas up w...

Re: Extending Trojan notation to finer resolution

Right. But I suggest you edit the table above, to embolden the tempered size for the first four, and the untempered size for the last 5.

Re: Extending Trojan notation to finer resolution

Good points. We won't switch those two's size-order then. Another random idea: what if, in order to reduce the count of symbols required to use this notation, we allow more symbols for the three-quarters-of-the-way positions. These symbols are valid flag combinations: cents symbol tempered size unt...

Re: Extending Trojan notation to finer resolution

I like monosymbolic. So we have: Notation -sagittal -symbolic JI, Trojan, EDO (Pure) mono mono JI, Trojan, EDO (Mixed) mono poly Prime Factor, Binary 12R poly poly Agreed. I think it goes without saying that we're not considering monosymbolic and polysymbolic as replacements for pure and mixed. Agr...

Re: Notification Sender Name

Thanks for that. I think I've fixed it. Did it work?

Re: New Olympian diacritics

How do you define a canonical form for edas? Do you just use the just intonated apotome that results from stacking seven fifths? That's correct. [-11 7> Here's a wild thought. What if the odd half-tinas were not used to notate ratios, but to notate noble numbers? How could that be made to work? Wel...

Re: New Olympian diacritics

Ah. OK. What about the subtle difference between 8539edo and 809eda? Does that change which intervals are between the cracks?

Re: New Olympian diacritics

Wow! Thanks for those, Ash. Are they all based on a single consistent mapping from primes to half-tinas? If so, can you give the number of half-tinas for each prime. I know 809-EDA is highly consistent, but I have no idea about 1618-EDA. The dots for half tinas were an expedient afterthought when Dr...
