Re: My general approach to notation: pitch, intervals, chords

So, back to your comment further above, "notational major" is ALWAYS simply "major" in my system. By acoustic major if you mean 64:81:96, then that's "major" again, but if you mean 4:5:6, then that's "pao (major)"...

Re: My general approach to notation: pitch, intervals, chords

Perhaps I didn't fully get that comment. But what does "ordinary major third" mean here? Surely not 81:64, which it would usually in Sagittal... If it means 5:4, then that's a "pao (major) third" by default (using Sagittal's JI logic). What does "supermajor third" mean here? Does it mean 9:7? Then t...

Or simply, "the pao major chord sounds like a pao major, but the major chord sounds like a tai major"...

Re: "Sagispeak"

Dave, I've finally seen the full updated "smilie" list, with names. Looks amazing, and answers a LOT of questions. I started writing a post about the pronunciation of unusual flags and diacritic marks for usage in discussing very high precision intonation, but found my question mostly answered by hi...

Re: My general approach to notation: pitch, intervals, chords

Thanks Dave! Man is it great to have full access to Sagittal symbols in a text format! If anyone has any doubts or questions about this system, I'd be more than happy to render any musical examples in words, symbols or on a stave, be they pitches, intervals, chords, melodies or sequences in whatever...

Re: My general approach to notation: pitch, intervals, chords

I should perhaps add, this is hardly something I should be calling "my" approach. I didn't come up with any of the groundwork, which is all there in the current Sagittal framework. All I'm really doing is taking that framework to its logical endpoint, and for that I must praise the brilliant work th...

Re: My general approach to notation: pitch, intervals, chords

Ah, as I'd feared one of the flags has become a smiley. ")|(" (with colons) is the "ranai" comma, 896:891, between 81/64 and 14/11 major thirds. This symbol is not yet enabled in the forums, but hopefully it can be understood. The other one is "||\" (with colons), the "pao-sharp" [135:128], or the a...

My general approach to notation: pitch, intervals, chords

There has recently been a lot of debate over facebook on how pitches, intervals and chords can and should be notated generally, in a kind of metatuning so all this information can be carried over to another tuning, from 19-prime limit or 2.3.11 JI to 81EDO to George's 29HTT to 72EDO to 22EDO, etc. D...

Re: "Sagispeak"

We are hoping to have fixed spelling across all languages that use latin/roman characters, and in order to do so we are happy to allow different pronunciations I'm assuming this also applies to those "+h" mixed phonemes? I think it's a really cool idea with those hs, I was seriously wondering why "...

Re: "Sagispeak"

I'm assuming we only want to use one of the phonemes in a voiced/unvoiced pair such as /t/,/d/ or /k,/g/, one of /l/,r/, and possibly only one or possibly two nasals to avoid confusion where there is lack of distinction in some languages. However I'm still seeing an aspirant (/h/), a nasal (/n/, /m/...
