1/5 comma meantone temperament

Postby Don » Mon Oct 17, 2016 9:21 pm

I want to use Thumbjam in 1.5 comma meantone temperament instead of equal or just temperament.

Is it possible to create a full user-specified temperament? I can see how to tweak a few intervals but that is not really enough.

I am new to Thumbjam and Scala and don't want to waste a lot of time trying to do something that is not possible.

If it is possible, then a few pointers to get me started would be appreciated.

Thx. Don.

You will need to find or create a scala text file on your computer first. Check out http://www.huygens-fokker.org/scala/scl_format.html and download the archive link near the top of that page, and you may very will find what you need already created. You can email the .scl file to yourself and Open In.. on your device and choose thumbjam, and then it will show up in your Scales list!

Great, thanks very much. That should be enough to get me going.
