You've probably seen or made charts of equal tunings sorted by the size of

their fifths and major thirds.

http://www.io.com/~hmiller/png/et-scales.png

What's interesting is that the tunings on this chart are lined up in a neat

interlocking set of rows, and that the slopes of the lines correspond to

5-limit unison vectors!

The row along the top consists of scales that share the unison vector

128/125 (0 -3). They all have 400 cent major thirds, with fifths ranging

from small to large: 21, 32, 12, 39, 27, 42, and 15-TET. The line continues

off the chart, with 9-TET to the left and 18-TET to the right.

Now look at the triangle with 12, 19, and 22-TET at its corners. Outside

this triangle is a handful of scales arranged in a pattern of interlocking

lines. Inside the triangle is a swarm of scales that fall mainly into the

"near-just" category, with all intervals within 5 cents of just; a few of

them have minor thirds slightly farther than 5 cents from just, and one

(101-TET) has a major third a bit more than 5 cents away from just.

The left edge of the triangle consists of meantone scales, with unison

vector 81/80 (4 -1). From top to bottom: 12, 67, 55, 98, 43, 117, 74, 105,

31, 81, 50, 69, 88, and 19-TET. Continuing onward, 45 and 26-TET lie along

the same line.

The right edge of the triangle consists of diaschismic scales, with unison

vector 2048/2025 (-4 -2). There's actually a pretty good number of scales

in this family: 12, 70, 58, 46, 126, 80, 114, 148, 34, 124, 90, 56, 78,

22-TET on the edge of the triangle, plus 54 and 32-TET if you continue the

line to the lower right.

The bottom edge of the triangle, from 19-TET to 22-TET, consists of scales

with slightly narrow major thirds, sharing a unison vector of 3125/3072 (-1

5). Five major thirds up equals a fifth plus an octave. The sequence goes:

19, 79, 60, 41, 104, 63, 85, 107, 22-TET. Also along the same line are

35-TET, to the left, and 25-TET, to the right.

The schismic temperaments, with unison vector 32805/32768 (8 1), are

collected on a line that goes straight through the middle of the swarm of

near-just tunings. There seem to be quite a few of these. 53-TET lies on a

major 3-way intersection near the center of the chart.

Scattered around the outside of the triangle are a number of small groups

of tunings in an interlocked pattern of lines; here are a few of the more

obvious ones.

(-4 -5) : (12) 73 61 49 37 (25)

(8 7) : (12) 95 83 71 59

(4 -4) : (12) 64 52 40 28

(3 4) : 28 47 19 48 29

(-2 7) : 26 29 32

(5 -3) : 37 59 22 51 29

Off the chart to the left is the tiny series 11, 9, 16, 23-TET, with the

unison vector 135/128 (3 1). Below the chart is the even smaller series 13,

10, 17-TET with the unison vector 25/24 (-1 2). 7-TET sits at the

intersection of these two lines, on a vertical line together with a few

other multiples of 7-TET, with 14-TET above the chart. 5-TET and 8-TET are

way off by themselves up and to the right of the chart. 6-TET is so far off

to the right that it might as well be on another planet.

You're so cool, Herman! This chart looks almost exactly like the

plots I did of the triads within the early part of the harmonic

series . . . spooky.

Apparently, this is called the small diesis. This must me one of the

unison vectors of the 10-note chain-of-major-thirds scale that comes

up from time to time.

Hey that's neat.

Instead of starting endless threads in my own terms on this list, I figured

I'd just wait until something familiar showed up. It took a month, but now

I can finally answer one of Paul's questions.

I used to refer to this exact chart quite a bit, but drawing it with no axes

or scale legend left it as sort of a vision hovering in mental space. I'd

also never plotted it on a large area. Graphic wise, going back 5-10 years

and doing a quick graph in HyperCard on the available monitors, with the

different color dots even, it's easier to visualize the inaccuracies now.

Having tick marks every 5 cents, I have to say, makes for a great quick

reference to the exact cent offsets. After spending so much more time

dealing with the percentage inaccuracies of intervals in ET's, this is a

very stable way to visualize it on the cent-scale. Thank you Herman.

I'd never heard the term "unison vector" until recently. This is why I was

referring to these different coincidences in terms of their equivalences;

saying "4P5 = M3" instead of "a unison vector of 81:80" I would think in

playing, which I'm thinking guitar anyway, it would be easier in practice to

remember the equivalence rather than the ratio that disappears, no? But

then again, I haven't yet given reason to do otherwise. Stay tuned. You

might like this one.

One day I started zooming in on the middle of the graph and replotting it, I

think I wound up at something like 256x magnification - using the same

"size" dots, the concentration of temperament dots winds up being more and

more dense. Amazingly enough, though, if you magnify this graph more and

more, and run the plotting way into the thousands, say... the center of the

graph winds up looking like a perfectly formed SQUARE centered exactly on

the just point. I tried to come up with a proof for it; the closest I got

was the idea that the most any one temperament could be off from the middle

is slightly less than one-half the chromatic step, which means every other

point to infinity has to be within the square defined by the just point plus

or minus a half chromatic step. Also, as you approach infinity, the dot

density increases much more than the width decreases.

It's the coolest thing though, to set a loop from say 3000 to 12 and watch

the plotting in reverse. You see the square build and build, until

eventually it starts exploding into a whirlwind of triangles.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Since it's a common enough vision that just intonation is "pure", I was

calling these temperament groups "strains" (as in virii) of meantone, again,

not realizing so many people associate meantone with the third series

mentioned here. Taking it literally, it seemed to me these should be

thought of as different classes of meantone since there was some "tone"

split into a "mean".

This I just called third-octave meantone, 3MT.

So this I just called Syntonic Meantone (SMT), or since it's four fifths to

a major third, SMT4... I'll explain why in a minute.

Paul, this is what I was calling Chromatic Meantone or CMT... the even ET's

where two minor seconds equal a major second. You said it's "simply

temperaments in which the diaschisma disappears". I couldn't figure out how

to explain what I was trying to communicate to you about the slight

differences in the series(pl.) until now. I'll explain in a minute.

I always liked this "line" on the chart because it doesn't pass through 12.

I don't really write up or down more than two or three major thirds in a

piece, so this series has a nice cushioning effect for me; that you can take

a note and two major thirds up or down, and walk that stack of thirds up and

down the cycles of fourths and fifths. Running out of ideas, since I saw it

stretching up to a sharp sixth from a note, I called this Augmented

Meantone.

I liked this name, since an A-Db was the 5:4 I called this Enharmonic

Meantone.

This I called quarter octave, 4MT.

Yup. This series actually sounds pretty interesting if you use the flat

major thirds.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

What "other" equivalences...?

All of these examples exclude those multiples of temperaments whose thirds

and fifths are also multiples. (e.g. 24, 106...)

Take the paradox of four fifths equalling a just major third.

You would see this as "a unison vector of 81:80".

Now take four fifths equalling a just major sixth.

You would see this as "a unison vector of 81:80".

Yes?

"4P5 = M3"

The temperaments where:

two octaves below four of the closest note to a 3:2

equals the closest note to a 5:4

...are:

12, 19, 26, 31, 43, 45, 50, 55, 67, 69, 74, 81, 88, 98, 105 and 117.

"3P5 = M6"

The temperaments where:

one octave below two of the closest note to a 3:2

equals the closest note to a 5:3

...are:

12, 19, 26, 31, 33, 40, 43, 45, 50, 55, 64, 69, 74, 81 and 88.

Okay one more, "5P5 = M7" (SMT5)

The temperaments where:

two octaves below five of the closest note to a 3:2

equals the closest note to a 15:8

...are:

12, 19, 31, 43, 50, 55, 67, 79, 81, 91, 98, 105, 117, 122, 141 and 153.

For a while, I thought the program was screwed up until I realized, if you

change the equivalence, the "unison vector" stays the same, but you get a

different series of temperaments. Unison vector. That's about 10 words

less than what I used to call it.

This is hard enough to visualize at first.

The case of the "diaschismic" differences in series didn't occur to me until

a couple years late, as the strains are harder to imagine.

"4P4 = 2M3"

You would see this at first as "a unison vector of 2048:2025 (-4 -2)".

The temperaments where:

one octave below four of the closest note to a 4:3

equals two of the closest note to a 5:4

...are:

12, 22, 32, 34, 46, 54, 56, 58, 70, 78, 80, 90, 114, 124, 126 and 148,

and thank you again, Herman, for bringing this facet forward.

(scarily enough you can also include *10*...)

"6P5 = 2M6"

You would see this at first as "a unison vector of 2048:2025 (-4 -2)".

The temperaments where:

three octaves below six of the closest note to a 3:2

equals two of the closest note to a 5:3

...are:

12, 22, 34, 46, 56, 58, 70, 78, 80, 90, 104, 114, 124, 126, 148, 150, 172,

206 and 218.

At first glance, or not graphing high enough, you might not notice the

absence of 54 or the presence of 104; if not, the difference doesn't show up

until after 148. This is a *lot* more subtle than the syntonic version!!!

So. You were absolutely right. The associated "unison vector" in each of

these cases *is* an interval that will "disappear". But instead of six of

one and half a dozen of the other, you can still make them disappear by

using different "equivalences".

As I said...

"8P4 = M3" (EMT8)

...a unison vector of 32805/32768 (8 1).

The temperaments where:

three octaves below eight of the closest note to a 4:3

equals the closest note to a 5:4

well.

Even though my terminology is occasionally makeshift, I do hope this article

somewhat amplifies the subtle distinction I've found, in the method of

accumulation of harmono-intervallic coincedences, that I was previously

trying to convey.

Huh? Let's take the scales were the diesis (128:125) vanishes.

What "tone" is being split into a "mean" there?

I don't think so. Did you mean three fifths equallying a just major

sixth? Then yes.

You mean three?

Aha -- for me these two series would come out identical, because I

would exclude the 5-limit inconsistent ones from both -- such as 33.

In general, though, a given unison vector or set of unison vectors

vanishing implies a temperament, not an ET, unless the number of

unison vectors vanishing is equal to the number of dimensions. For

example, in Herman's chart, each point lies at the intersection of

two lines (actually more, but two is enough for an unambiguous

location), corresponding to the two unison vectors that vanish for

the ET represented by that point. And you can calculate the ET from

the absolute value of the determinant of the matrix of unison

vectors. The determinant is defined as (a*d - b*c) for a matrix

[a b]

[c d]

For example, 12-tET lies at the intersection of the line representing

the syntonic comma (4 -1) and the schisma (8 1). So the matrix is

[4 -1]

[8 1]

and the determinant is (4*1 - 8*(-1)) = 4+8 = 12. Voila! Try some

others . . .

As for the "paradox" or "subtle distinction" you bring up, I don't

put too much weight on it, since inconsistent ETs can be mapped to

the consonant intervals in more than one way, and it's really the

_mapping_, not the ET itself, that determines which unison vectors

are involved.

As cab be seen at a glance in either of the prime-factor notations.

Yup... you got me there. I just added the vector notation for that

one to be consistent... the reason I really started translating your

unison-vector ratios into prime-factor vector notation was because

those other ratios had *huge* integers and I couldn't tell what

was going on until I factored them.

Right again, Dan. This notation really *is* simply a shorthand

for what I wrote as:

[ 0 0 2 0 -1]

[ 0 0 -1 0 4]

(Here, I've inverted the signs as you have, and ignore

powers of 2 as I usually would but didn't before; I've also

decided that I like the square brackets better than the bar

because there's less chance of confusion with "1".)

I'm curious tho... why did you put the 13-column first and

the 7-column second in your matrix?

I can see a cab at a glance, but I don't get this vector notation...

Could you please gently run it down again, or would that be for the

*arithmetic* list??

Thanks!

We've done that before, for

example Margo and my

discussions (about 22-tET, among

other things) in the (3,7) plane.
