Re: developing a comma complexity metric

One thing to consider when you're comparing ratios like 11:35, 7:55. 5:77 and 1:385 is that something like 7:55 may represent 55:56, and 1:385 could be 384:385. Superparticular ratios seem to come up frequently. So when you're considering how lopsided a ratio is, it might help to add factors of 2 or...

Re: Luna notation

This looks like a good solution for a difficult temperament to notate. I looked over my notes on Sagittal notation to see if I had anything for luna, and the only thing I had is full of schisma accents.

Re: gathering Sagittal-notated scores

Dorico has advantages over Finale in some ways, but it does have some limitations. Dorico can handle large EDOs with ease, while Finale is constrained by the 128-note MIDI limitation. More complex temperaments including rank 2, rank 3, or JI can be represented as subsets of large EDOs. One of the th...

Re: gathering Sagittal-notated scores

I have a partial score for my 20-EDO song "Ivari na taniravi" (without percussion). I'll need to add a key at the beginning, but it's basically :)~|: :)~!: = 1 step, :(|\: :(!/: = 2, :~||\: :~!!/: = 3, :/||\: :\!!/: = 4. Notated using Dorico 3.

Re: gathering Sagittal-notated scores

I've been using Dorico to try notating some of my music, but it's a time-consuming process and I don't have much that's complete. I do have a comparison of my 16-EDO etude in Easley Blackwood's notation and two Sagittal notations (the native 16-EDO notation and 48-EDO as suggested in the Sagittal pa...

Re: Notation for Fibonacci tuning (Wilson's horogram #22)?

I'm not assuming any mapping for now, just trying to find accidentals of approximately the right size. You could either use +10 generators or -11 generators for the 7th harmonic, for instance. And I think I got the 108c one wrong, it should be :/||): . Here's the list with a few more additions sorte...

Notation for Fibonacci tuning (Wilson's horogram #22)?

http://www.elvenminstrel.com/music/tuning/horagrams/horagram01.htm I'm wondering about the best way to notate this tuning. It looks the Spartan level is sufficient for smaller subsets of the tuning, and Athenian should be good for almost anything. Promethean gets you an extra level, but many of the ...

Every other note of 26-EDO is also the notation Easley Blackwood used in his Twelve Microtonal Etudes.

Re: 15&22 (Porcupine) notation

The same accidentals can be used for MOS nominals if you're using a notation based on porcupine[7]. I like to use :/|): 36/35 instead of :/|: but it's the same in 7-limit porcupine because the :|): 64/63 is tempered out. If you're using a porcupine[8] notation you might want an accidental for 21/20,...
