josepp Easy way to draw a circle of 5ths (59* d) RE: Easy way to draw a circle of 5ths 01 May 11


///For an equi-tempered scale, a circle suffices, but in just temperament you DO NOT arrive back at the same "C" (or any other) pitch after each transit of the "circle." It is that difference that needs to be shown/understood, and an accurately constructed "spiral of fifths" will show it quite clearly.///

For just tuning. Who cares? You talk like just tuning is more correct than equal tempered. You have all kinds of tunings besides those two: True tuning, modal tuning, twelve fifths tuning. Since I'm talking about the Circle of 5ths, it should be painfully obvious that I have no interest in these other tunings. You can keep talking about just tuning if that floats your boat but it really has nothing to do with anything thus far being discussed and rightfully belongs on another thread.
