Re: Wrong statements
I wrote wrong statements when responded your message given below.

(1) You are correct. I shouldn´t use G into the comparison since e. t. G is
not 3/2 but 1.4983.... A fast response was the cause. Before I should had
explained that since the 12 tet scale is most used in occident despite its
tone frequency imperfecctions, IMO the better options are those scales that
work with stretched octaves.
You asked the following:
>"e.g. why not use the pure 3/2 interval in both cases?".It was an error to use 3/2 for G tempered so it would also be an error to
use it in both cases. About your question (2):
>(2) >you say the 3/2 is not available in the equal tempered system withWhen responding these points I was keeping in mind that in no case "tempered

G" is 3/2 while "toctaved G" does it as we can see it in the attached file.
(I admit that I didn´t balance the conditions)
I attached a toctaved scale where D/C# = P interval factor = (8/9)*2^(1/4)
1.05705299111 and C#/C = K interval = (9/8)^(1/2) = 1.06066017178. Both K
and P intervals are the Piagui scale semitone factors.
P and K factors are cells # 49 and # 52 respectively, their ratio gives the
Starting with K factor, the tone intervals follow the sequence K P K K K K
P P K K K K =
(K^9)*(P^3) that surprisingly gives the toctave & = Cell # 615 =
Since K and P are the basic elements to develope the Piagui scales, they may
the validity of the mentioned toctave, isn´t it?.
