Thanks for the clarification, Paul.

Perhaps we can prevent confusion in the future by agreeing on the use of symbols.

***

BTW You missed MY error.

The translation should have read:

....you have used the symbol s to equal (L-s), (the #I )

[LucyTuning uses (L-s)],

and the symbol L to equal s, (the IInd)

[LT uses (s)].

***

In LucyTuning, L = IInd and s = bIInd

so that 5L+2s = One Octave.

Best Wishes, and greetings from London.

Lucy
