66.81.129.16;2003-08-24 19:53;no-email;I don't think I would notice the difference between the two tunings if I didn't hear them repeated several times. The differences I do hear are probably more related to the combination of tones rather than a note for note comparison (I somewhat doubt I could hear the difference if single notes were played). Most of these differences I heard were phasing or "beating" effects from the interference of the different notes. 
 
Some neat information, I'd like to expirement with other scales like 5, 7, and 13 note scales and try and see if I could compose something that would be pleasing to the ear.

great web site!  Thanks for sharing all your research.  Why is A 440.00 chosen as a center rather than any pitch between A 416 to A 466?  Are there any articles that explain why that exact frequency was chosen to base the equal tempered scale on?

203.206.21.141;2003-12-15 13:08;Yeah, I know it's weird to say that I prefer JI for the harpsichord when I prefer Equal Temperament on the ripple test but I think JI gives a slightly 'darker' (for want of a better word) and less tuneful sound and the harpsichord to my ear is an instrument that you want to sound that way.....slightly off colour, twangy and strange.

210.50.216.13;2004-04-29 03:19;A couple of points. Firstly, FANTASTIC site. Now the relevant bits. 
 
I do not think pentatonic scales should be played in Just intonation but Equal Temp 
 
I Major and I minor triads sound best in Just intonation. After all from the harmonics that makes sence. 
 
Re: your catchy tune test. I think it sounds best in equal temperament for the very reason that your just intonation one calls on chords other than the 'harmonious' ones like I. I remember playing some bach in Just intonation as an experiment and it sounded god-awful. 
 
I guess the most harmonically perfect instruments (assuming expert players) would be strings :) 
 
FYI, I play mostly in EXACT equal temperament, although blessed with a digital piano I can switch to the period 'well temperaments' ie werckmeister with ease, just to see what bach might have sounded to himself. 
 
I trust you've taken a look at Wendy Carlos's Beauty in the Beast? Fantastic.... you can hear bits on amazon.

69.142.172.223;2004-05-01 14:38;I think the 12et versions sound more musically interesting and harmonically rich to me than JI. I think its the same reason many audiophiles still prefer tube amplifiers to solid state, tubes have more total distortion than solid state, but the distortion it adds is almost all in the form of added harmonic richness.

24.99.111.50;2004-05-12 09:46;this site is GREAT and is exactly what i was searching for!  i have been playing harmonics on my guitar on the low E string and noticed that the 7th harmonic is not exactly a minor 7th and thought that the 11th harmonic was a flat 5th (i guess it is sligthly different, but i guess the whole point is that almost every note is slightly off!) 
i think it is interesting to note that in the harpsichord tune test i liked the equal temperment version better, probably because i have been hearing it my whole life.  Just Intonation sounds like japanese or indian music, almost too perfect and in tune.  maybe there's something about our equal temperment that makes it sound better than just intonation similarly to analog magnetic tape sounding better than digital recordings, or tube amps sounding better than amps with dsp. 
thanks so much for your research!

i am currently learning indian music on the sitar and grew up listening to lots of different indian instruments - the main amazing thing about these is they are tuned to what i guess you would call the dynamic JI - my father showed me how to tune my sitar and you start with a base pitch and then listen to harmonizing between strings to tune them - it makes for a beautiful, medatative sound;Ripple Opinion=I prefer the 12 equal ripple by a whisker|Triad Opinion=I prefer the 12 equal triad by a whisker|Harpsichord Tune Opinion=I prefer the Just Intoned harpsichord|;;;

198.168.152.20;2004-11-18 21:25;Your page is very well done, thank you for taking the timing and effort to do it. Virtual tones or difference tones are not always "barely audible". P. Missin has an interesting blurb on the web and suggests a test with a Marine Band Harmonica in F ...(draw simutaneously on the 7 and 8 hole and the difference tone will NOT be subtle) ...and with JI the third tone will harmonise with the other 2. With lower pitches and perhaps with other instruments, it may not be as well recognised but is it not possible that it could flavour the sound ...if so, is it not better that the extra note harmonise? 
I am not sure why you added vibrato (tremolo ?)to your sound tests. I know nothing about this but could this not negate the supposed advantage of JI ..messy notes, messy chords, more buzz ?? Just asking ? Thanks again ...very nice site

24.205.93.104;2005-01-05 21:35;Music is very subjective.  What one ear may feel is right may not be for another.  So I feel saying what is the best or ideal scale is really a matter of one's choice and opinion.  However, it is relevant mathematically what may be the "perfect" pitch when you're talking about fractionalizing the frequency wave into different tones.  From a mathematic stand point, it should be clear what the "perfect" 3rd, 4th, and 5th is. 
My opinion, 12-equal sounds a bit more dynamic...while Just Intonation sounds more in harmony, almost soothing with muted dynamism.  Both serve their purpose and I don't think one is necessarily better than the other in all cases.  It's really up to the artist to make use of the frequencies to express whatever they want or intend to express.  If they do their job, the listener will feel what the artist was feeling or wanting.  So if someone writes a song on a particular scale, then it should be left on that scale...otherwise the song will not sound the way it was intended...which is perhaps why it may sound a bit off.;Know Tuning=Yes - even before I visited this web site, I recognised the subtle difference between the sound of Just Intonation and 12-equal|Ear quality=Excellent - I believe my ear to be very sharp|Ripple Opinion=I think both 12 Equal and Just ripples are about as good in different ways|Triad Opinion=I prefer the Just Intoned triad|Harpsichord Tune Opinion=I prefer the 12 equal harpsichord|;;;

208.6.1.144;2006-04-14 13:49;I am a professional music educator who has instructed college-level coursework in music theory, and have been surfing the internet for audio examples of the inherent benefits and drawbacks of Just Intonation, Meantone Temperament, and Equal Temperament for illustration in class. This site is absolutely spectacular, and will be finding its way into my classroom without fail. I have always had a "good ear," having scored perfectly or near-perfectly on pretty much every undergrad, grad, and doc level listening / dictation test I've ever taken, and I have always felt that, for the plethora of mathematical reasons, Equal Temperament is the best compromise logically, but we also should take into account that my preference for Equal Temperament is likely the result of decades of immersion in a culture that USES that temperament. If I had been born in 300 B.C., I might be a diehard advocate of straight-up Pythagorean Tuning... but I'd like to think otherwise. ;) Thanks for the spectacular resource.

65.95.110.77;2006-06-28 14:52;Under your heading of "which tuning is the winner", i believe from my expierence, that there is a difference from Eb and D#. This is because I play the violin... and since we do not have frets or anything to rely on to tell us the correct pitch, we have to use our ears. And from reading music off a page, there IS a slight difference that not many people can hear. Anyways, I just wanted you to know.

69.95.33.138;2006-07-04 01:18;WHY 12? Pythagoras experimented with ratios. 1:1, 1:2, 2:3, 3:4... resulting in a seven tone scale. but the distances were not uniform, a naturaly modular effect occured when "playing in a diferent key" (related to why the modes have greek names) later mathguys observed that the distances between a and b were not similar to the distances between b and c, so semitones were placed, a b c d e f g, were the original seven, the semitones a# c# d# f# g#, were the next five, that was the begining of the 12 tone scale. (p.s. thank newton for diferential calculus that was responsible for the scale we have today.) SandFist;;;;

This is a very interesting subject that I wish I had more time to devote to. My only other real experience with alternate tunings was hearing the material on Switched On Bach 2000. 
 
Has anyone investigated what tunings are actually used by performing groups in different genres? Or is the tuning of most of the music we hear even accurate enough to call it a specific tuning? 
 
So many questions, so little time.

You indicate that consonance among harmonics degrades beyond the 6th harmonic.  I believe that physical properties of materials used in strings prevent the perfect propogation of a fundamental frequency and its harmonics.

64.13.31.214;2006-09-07 02:56;Aloha, 
Thank you for helping me or refering me to someone who can assist. 
I have a set of crystal bowls that are true pitch on the A=440 scale.(C=261.63) C,C#,D,D#,E,F,F#,G,G#,A,A#,B.  
I want to create another set where C = 256. The bowl distributor needs me to tell them how many cents + or - on a instrument tuner for each note or how many hertz to lower their adjustable instrument tuner (ie +5 or -5). My question is on an instrument tuner how many Hertz must I lower the 440 to get a true pitch scale with C=256 for the entire set to match? The goal is to create a natural harmonic scale. 
Mahalo

71.34.248.140;2006-10-01 02:08;My guess is that in the blind test sample A was still 12-tet, and sample B was just.  I heard more beat in the first option, but I may be decieved.  My personal opinion however is that the minor chord in sample A was better than in B, but the major chord was better in B.  My hunch is that it's due to the inherent "something's mysterious, dark and/or not-quite-right with this chord" that I associate with minor.  Major seems more like it should be consonant and in accordance with itself.

88.159.65.204;2006-10-01 21:33;Hi, I'm a music student (conservatory Amsterdam) and I am open to all kinds of experimental music. I even have a CD with Charles Ives' quarter tone music, and luckily I don't have perfect pitch:) (my ex-girlfriend had it, used to listen to quarter tones just to drive her mad). Actually i think there is something to say for both tunings. I believe that there are certain effects you can only get by using quarter tones, but I like to listen to 'conventional' music much more than to just tonation. I am still a bit baffled why we chose to use just intonation in every day life in stead of oour current system, it's really weird to know that you instrument (i play double bass) is always out of (relative) tune and especially when you listen to your harmonics, that it doesn't even come close to a piano.

82.156.254.93;2006-11-19 16:54;This is an incredible deep project you've attained. Congratulations, I would say! The only thing that is a big factor, and you didn't really mentioned (even though, you may have taken it as a factor), is that, we in the Western world, our ears are suited to the 12tone system, simply because we've lived in that world for a big time of our lives. When you compare differend tunings, obviously you compare the two (like you constantly do with Just Intonation to 12 Equal), but we're quite having a prejudice for 12 equal. It needs months and months of ONLY being in the other world of tuning, to unprejudicely listen to the other tuning. To make an analogy: QWERTY keyboard over DVORAK. It's been SUCH a standard, that we stayed in that system, even though DVORAK has that much more benefits. When starting typing in the other system, it's really strange, and feels harder, simply becuase we're not used to it, not because it's inferior. 
 
Know, that this is just my input of this, I'm not trying to attack you in any way.

I don't trust my ear alot, I would say I am about avarage.  I only try to detect relivive pitch.  I have messed around with a software theremin that I made, and tuned bass guitars and bagpipes (a real pain).  But how can I judge my own ear?

72.147.62.189;2006-12-01 03:15;I've been tuning pianos for a number of years and a "stretched" equal tempered scale is really the only way to do it correctly.  What happens is the overlapping of the overtones within each note just don't work well without stretch.  The overtone stretch is actually instrument specific, but about 2 to 4 cents /octave seems to work well.  I tune the upper scale by procedure against an accurate strobe reference (my design), and the lower octaves by ear.  It is especially critical to get the right timbre in the lower octaves because the overtones usually dominate the tonal balance.;Know Tuning=Yes - even before I visited this web site, I recognised the subtle difference between the sound of Just Intonation and 12-equal|Ear quality=Good to Very Good|Ripple Opinion=I prefer the 12 equal ripple|Triad Opinion=I prefer the 12 equal triad|Harpsichord Tune Opinion=I prefer the 12 equal harpsichord by a whisker|;;;

69.71.160.205;2006-12-29 09:01;i have wondered about tuning for a while now. I play guitar but want to encorporate so many things into a doom/ death metal breakdown style like symphonys or violins and especially a sitar to make a peice as dramatic as i can. however, most of the bands i found in rock would use E tuning and drop to the top string to D. I found that the bands I liked more dropped the whole guitar into C! however when I play this low, I dont "feel" the music as much as I do when I play my seven string in regular E tunning with the top string drop A. I dont know why normal tunning sounds "harder" this way and im constantly trying to understand how to perfectly encorporate other styles and instruments to make one Fking dramatic sound! any comments are appreciated, love the site. mikekerwin[{name is at}]hotmail.com;Ripple Opinion=I prefer the Just Intoned ripple|Triad Opinion=I prefer the 12 equal triad|Harpsichord Tune Opinion=I hear no difference between the two harpsichords|;;;

74.135.166.12;2007-01-29 05:48;Greetings: 
 
I've been studying just intonation for about 5 years and the mathematics of tonal harmony for 20 years or so. 
 
I think you're making some fundamental mistakes in how you frame your survey, especially in the "triad test."  My advice is, first, to get rid of the complex waveforms and vibrato in the mp3's you offer.  Next, try a triad made of pure sine waves:  220 Hz: 330 Hz: 550 Hz.  Then, compare that triad to its equal-tempered equivalent. 
 
I'd love to hear from you what you hear. 
 
On another note (pardon the pun), I want to tell you that I think your site is awesome, and I've already sent one of my students a link to your work. 
 
Your colleague, in harmony, 
paulkotheimer:)

35.11.78.59;2007-02-27 03:13;On the harpsichord test, the 12-eq version sounded in some ways "better" (perhaps "mellower" might be a good additional adjective), but it just did NOT sound like a real harpsichord, as the JI version did; it sounded synthesized and not like listening to a recording of an actual instrument.  There's a small section about a third of the way through where there's an undertone which really emphasized this difference, but I am not sufficiently skilled  to describe what difference I mean.  Of course, this distinction is probably because most real harpsichords are tuned closer to JI than 12-eq, but that sweet jangliness is part of what I like about harpsichord music in the first place; smoothing it out is not necessarily an improvement. I can see how one might prefer it in some ways, so I selected the "good in different ways" option.  In this case, I just want to say I like the JI janglies better than the 12-eq mellows for most music I'd want to hear on a harpsichord anyway, but there is a good chance that certain classes of music which are not traditionally played on harpsichord (because they'd sound weird, maybe) would benefit from the alternate tuning.;Ripple Opinion=I prefer the 12 equal ripple by a whisker|Triad Opinion=I prefer the 12 equal triad by a whisker|Harpsichord Tune Opinion=I think both 12 Equal and Just harpsichords are about as good in different ways|;;;

71.220.74.66;2007-04-25 15:52;I wonder if there's any correlation between scale preference and perfect pitch.  Also I think it was not a good idea to use such a distorted patch for the triad test I read the justification for why you did that but if I understand this test it's supposed to determine which SOUND you like better, not which PITCH.  I think that part of the magic of Just Intonation is that the fundamental is more easily displaced to sounding like an overtone or an undertone or even sometimes a triad will sound noticibly like a chord.  Good site, cool stuff... but I really hate that saw tooth patch, and I think that your too concerned about the function of an imaginary pitch seperate from the whole aural experience.   e-mail:  fdfsfafsfdf[{name is at}]yahoo.com

74.132.215.47;2007-07-17 05:06;I am a neural engineering working on my master's. My professor does his main research in neural prosthetics, particularly neural prosthetics interfacing with the auditory cortex. Coming from an electronics engineering technology background, mixed with my current work, and being frustratingly obsessive with my speakers, reading all of the work you had displayed on your webpage was very interesting, and I'm glad you decided to still maintain it. Thank you =). 
 
As for your survey: I honestly couldn't pick out the difference between the two scales in the first test until I listened back and forth MANY times. I kinda wished that the files were available in better sound quality. Eventually, I was able to pick out the difference. I decided that the JI version had less emphasis on the different notes as it went up the scale, which I didn't like as much, but it did convey a more minor chord, which is pleasingly dramatic. So, I chose that they were both valid for different purposes. 
 
For the second set, I chose that I prefer sample A (which I assume is the 12equal). It seemed like the progression for sample A was very appropriate, and pleasing. For sample B, the progression seemed much more minor. I think that for different applications, B could sound much more dramatic than A.  
 
Finally, for the Harpsichord test, I decided that I liked the A version. It sounded like there was more dynamic range in it, like some of the notes were more emphasized than others; I don't know if it's due to the sound quality, or because I actually do perceive that the notes are louder. But, I enjoyed the loud/quiet variety, so I decided I preferred version A.  
 
Thank you for your site, and I plan on becoming a forum member =).

78.1.110.125;2007-08-23 06:07;The ripple and harpsichord test were really easy cause I could hear JI was obviously more "out of tune" when it comes to the ratio 
With triad test I had some trouble cause samples were out of tune with each other so I listened to them with pauses...I even changed my ear location.In my opinion version A sounds more in tune then version B but I must admit they both have certain "tonal color" qualities  
And thumbs up for the site-I have been searching for some valuable data on the internet with some real samples and this is one of the better site I found. 
It would be cool if some new material would be added regarding other tunings regarding geographical position (tunings used in africa and China?)and some more samples.

62.57.59.180;2007-08-27 00:13;hey there! 
 
thanx for sharing your thoughts, it's been all a very interesting read.. 
 
good find on noticing that beating of tones occurs even if the tones are pitched in each ear separately.. i have noticed this before, but i didnt give it importance.. 
 
i am a guitarist, i have played 8 years, and studied 4 years on conservatory.. 
 
to me both ways of tuning are equally good.. equal temperament is more clean, and i guess will be better for music with not too much harmony going around, or that use rather standart keys.. but it can be cold or "boring" compared in some situations... in the other side, Just sounds darker to my ear, and funny things happen sometimes (i'm not used to listen to it, so i dont have much experience..) so its very interesting.. 
 
btw in reference to the hapsichord tune test, the fugue, listen to the just intonation version at more or less 0:10 .. there are two notes that sound very odd, like clashing in between the chords in a funny dark manner.. i find this effect very interesting.. 
 
for this reaosn i choose the just version to be better in this case.. but this might be an isolated case.. 
 
i think i found one case with Equal temperament where a similar things happen, and it is with the song "is there anybody out there" by pink floyd... if you play the arpeggio notes on the guitar, they  clash at some determinated moments giving some over tones, that also evolve and interact with themselves creating a movement, as the normal tone progression evolves too.. and wisely on the original song, a synth is playing this resulting tones, making a melody out of it.. 
 
btw i think you should try what you did with other keys and harmonic situations... like lets say melodic minor, half diminished scale, or maybe fooling with the blues note (i heard that it is not as much as blue as it could be on equal temperament..) 
 
also i really think you should try this with the lydian mode.. on a book called "lydian chromatic concept of tonal organization" (that probably you know, if not i reccomend it) it is stated that the lydian mode should be the one that sounded better, or that will be more pleasant to the ear, as it can be constructed of stacked fifths.. and the fifth is the more consonant of the intervals.. 
 
i think i agree with this, because casually its one of the scales i enjoy using more.. or one of the moods i enjoy more.. 
 
so it will be interesting to see what happens with lydian and the different intonations, or keys, as i guess C lydian is not exactly the same as A lydian or whatever.. 
 
well nothing else.. thank you for sharing this..

207.200.116.5;2007-09-02 15:07;As a music student, I agree with you that 12tet is actually in tune rather than believing that just intonation is best case and that ET is just "close enough" Not only is ET king, but anything besides 5 limit JI is horrendous to listen to! I'm sure you've done your fair share of Harry Partch...so you know what I'm talking about. I can hack 5 limit with some slight discomfort but 7, 11, 13, and beyond is madness. Anyways, I have all the same questions you do probably but not as weel equipped as you are (as of now) to answer them quite yet. One thing I discovered the other day that's pretty cool, you know how bad guitars sound in ET with distortion on...like that harpsichord problem you talked out. Well, that problem dissapears just like you predicted if you separate each note and then manualy mix it. It sounds like dual guitar solos on different amplifiers. Anyways, my email is geoffreyefloyd[{name is at}]aol.com if you have some xtra info on pychoacoustics other than the links here already I would love that.

Magnificent site. Great references and links. 
Very well written(i.e. easily understood) 
I am a retired Math/ComputerScience Teacher and have been recently 'surfing'/learning the math theories in music (self-interest). 
 
A question that I have yet to see addressed in the many links I am studying: 
Why not use 12 letters for the 12 notes (the sharps/flats imply a special relation between two notes...twelfth roots of two, in frequency, is the only relation among them that I can see). 
 
My enthusiasm for this article prompted this letter. I have read many web-based articles recently and this is the only one that has a vibrant conversational tone.

24.223.181.139;2008-01-06 18:09;VERY COOL - I want to read your site in depth - you are looking into something that I have brought up and most musicians find it disturbing to look into for some reason. 
 
- I am a chemist  
- I listen to all music (not rap ro country) 
- Music affect me deeply 
- I like to music theory, but play by ear 
- I play like I talk or sing - I am unaware of how I hit the right note every time 
- I can paly a mood or affect the music at will 
 
MY MYSTERY QUESTION - Music notation is about as arbitrary as anything I have every seen - why not just give each note a number. Each musical instrument will play that number. Example Middle "C" is a #12 for piano, flute and guitar. But where "12" is on an instrument is particular to that instrument but never changes. No trascribing etc. Or am I crazy?!?

192.146.1.14;2008-03-05 17:32;The just intonation options seemed brighter than the equal temperment.  On the harpsichord tune the equal version seemed like the tuning distracted from the music.  I think the survey would be more valid if you didn't label the tuning types on the examples.  A trained or sharp ear may be able to tell the difference and therefore slant the survey results, but the average and untrained ear would maybe feel like there's something about one that was nicer than the other and vote in a more objective way.  Also, you could tell us after the survey what our own preference if any was shown by just listening.;Know Tuning=No - Prior to visiting this site, I didn't know the difference between the sound of Just Intonation and 12-equal|Ear quality=Average|Ripple Opinion=I prefer the Just Intoned ripple by a whisker|Triad Opinion=Both triads are about as good|Harpsichord Tune Opinion=I prefer the Just Intoned harpsichord|;;;

64.65.140.161;2008-04-11 07:27;I must say that your audio samples do not do justice to either system. find recordings of acoustic instruments, and if not that at least use simple, sustained pitches with a decent timbre. 
that said,  
equal temperament is a useful system. some fine music has been made with it. don't forget that it's acceptance is VERY recent and it has long been rejected for a reason. music written for ET sounds best played in ET and likewise for other tunings. so to say that ET takes the cake is dangerous indeed. it's not a battle.  
to my ears, for example, baroque music sounds god awful in 12TET. Bach wasn't a fan of the temperament either! (and don't forget that much of the world still uses pure, small ratio tunings) can you imagine Indian classical music with a tempered tamboura behind it? yikes!  
It seems only natural that if you aren't familiar with pure intervals they will sound wrong unless you give them a true chance (ie musical and not in a laboratory). if all you've eaten is white bread and jelly your entire life, an exotic spicy dish may be too much for your palette and would be easy to reject. it is advised to start with small dose (try pure fifths sustained for several minutes and see which one doesn't cause you to pull your eyes out) 
I appreciate the discussion, but wish you wouldn't be so quick to judge. 
it's definitely not even close to being with a real instrument, but here's a musical example of a non 12TET that sounds pretty good (despite the quality of the vid) 
 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iMy-oTPD5mI 
(and no these aren't my vids)  
 
again, both systems are obviously valid. music is made every day using both systems. left to our own devices, without keyed instruments people tend to prefer smaller ratios. choral harmony always favors the smaller ratios when unaccompanied (try it! play a major third on a piano and ask two friends to sing that interval. hold it out. sing it for five minutes, then play it again) technology poses some problems and we work through them as best we can.  
the question you seem to be asking is: 
should we live the simple life, or should we make things complicated. which is the valid choice?

"WELL THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE SOUNDS BETTER TO ME AND HERE'S WHY.... 500,000 WORDS LATER... SO THEREFORE I HAVE DETERMINED THAT ENGLISH IS NOT ONLY BETTER SOUNDING THAN SPANISH OR JAPANESE (NOT TO MENTION THE THOUSANDS OF OTHERS) BUT IT MUST BE THE ONLY CORRECT LANGUAGE BECAUSE THE OTHERS JUST SOUND 'OFF' TO ME." 
 
THEN FOR AN "OBJECTIVE" VOTE I'D PUT SOME SHITTY SOUNDING SYNTHESIZED VOICES SPEAKING UNINTELLIGIBLY IN A FEW DIFFERENT LANGUAGES. AND OF COURSE ONLY PEOPLE WHO SPOKE ENGLISH COULD READ THE SITE, SO ONLY ENGLISH SPEAKERS WOULD BE VOTING.  
 
HIS WHOLE SHPEAL IS TOTALLY UNSCIENTIFIC - AND TO BE HONEST, I INITIALLY TOOK IT FOR AN ELABORATE HOAX (AND PERHAPS IT IS?). 
 
I SUGGEST AS THE REAL TEST TO WHETHER 12TET IS 'VALID' WOULD BE TO FORCE PEOPLE TO LISTEN TO THIS DUDE'S MUSIC (REALLY, CHECK OUT HIS MP3s) I THINK IT'S PRETTY CLEAR WHAT THE ANSWER WOULD BE IN THAT CASE...

68.107.45.128;2008-06-16 06:59;The distortions in 2 out of 3 of the B versions seemed less clear, almost as if it were a fault of quality in comparison to the A versions.  I prefer crisp sounds.  I trust the my ear's judgment for these isolated cases, but in all honesty if I were not looking for a critique, I wouldn't have cared or probably even noticed the differences between these comparisons.  For instance if both Harpsichord versions were played in a single song separated by a bridge, my ear would not have jumped on the lack of similarity between sections.

69.246.215.168;2008-06-29 09:39;I think that this site is incredible.  I am not a great student of theory though the way you are presenting this sparks my interest greatly. 
 
I fell that the 12 equal versions have more personality.  Though in the second question I think both could be used even in the same piece of music - they sound totally unalike but fairly good. 
 
The 1st question I could say the same thing but I really felt un-inspired by the intonational version - it seemed to blend together to much giving each not less importance. 
 
In the final Question - The one deciding factor is the single high not that is ticking in the background - ting ting ting ting ting ting ting.  In the 12 equal version it is peaceful and almost hidden in a soft bed of sparkling emerald jewels welcoming us to an awakening. While in the intonational version what I hear is more direct - i think it becomes and insulting little note with to much attitude. 
 
I don't know my ear.  I will pick up an out of tune instrument and play it until i find something that makes me feel well.  I understand that being in tune surely provides more options for the well being of the music - though all I know is is that if I can't go to the place within myself where I can feel music, notes and such timber and tune mean nothing - I felt more of a good feeling with the 12 equal versions. 
 
thank you very much,

204.211.254.71;2008-07-26 15:26;I know that my ear tends to imprint easily because I can listen to a recording of a live show a four or five times, not necessarily in one straight burst, and then a studio mixed version sounds off to me, or vice versa.  Also, different singers between two versions or adding or removing a minor instrument has the same effect. 
 
So, I'm not sure how much of my preference for equal tone is imprinting on that pattern. Certainly, in the Harpsichord test, version B bothers me by sounding "buzzy", but when I really listen to both, I can't say that version A is truly any less buzzy, just that the "tones" of the "buzz" are more familiar. 
 
The second chord in the Triad test in manifests what seems to my ears to be objectively more "buzzyness" in version B; but while I prefer the sound of the first chord in version A, it seems to be more a matter of familiarity rather than an objective difference. 
 
In the Ripple test, version B sounds lower in pitch.  Though on concentrated listening, it seems that both have the same low tones, but version A sounds "contaminated" with high pitches.  Of course, I have a preference for lower tones in general, as I particularly noted in adjusting a sine tone for Morse code. ;Know Tuning=No - Prior to visiting this site, I didn't know the difference between the sound of Just Intonation and 12-equal|Ear quality=Average|Ripple Opinion=I prefer the Just Intoned ripple by a whisker|Triad Opinion=I prefer the 12 equal triad|Harpsichord Tune Opinion=I prefer the 12 equal harpsichord|;;;

66.169.217.128;2008-09-23 06:14;Equal Temperament is, in my ear, significantly more pleasant.  Just Intonation is tempting to some because the simple, rational frequencies seem to imply a purity of sound.  However, Equal Temperament sets the frequency ratios of consecutive notes at perfectly equal proportions, which truly produces a pure, unified sound.  I am a graduate student in composition, and I invest a lot of faith in my ears - they've been my secret weapon for many years.

118.137.194.211;2008-10-09 04:56;because i'm an indonesian. I think music is not just had 12 notes according to western music pitch. But if u compare to the traditional music example Gamelan Jawa or Gamelan Bali, you will find pentatonic notes with a little different cent pitch from that 12 notes.

Has anyone tried to divide an octave with Fibonacci ratios? 
 
Apparently yes, Quote: 
In music, Fibonacci numbers are sometimes used to determine tunings, and, as in visual art, to determine the length or size of content or formal elements. It is commonly thought that the first movement of Béla Bartók's Music for Strings, Percussion, and Celesta was structured using Fibonacci numbers.;Ear quality=Average|Ripple Opinion=I prefer the Just Intoned ripple|Triad Opinion=I prefer the Just Intoned triad by a whisker|Harpsichord Tune Opinion=I prefer the 12 equal harpsichord by a whisker|;;;

However the pythagorean one sticks out in the triads (it is almost like a 1/1 5/4 3/2 16/9 for a dominant seventh when the "right ratios" are 1/1 5/4 3/2 7/4 etc.);Know Tuning=Yes - even before I visited this web site, I recognised the subtle difference between the sound of Just Intonation and 12-equal|Ear quality=Average|Ripple Opinion=I think both 12 Equal and Just ripples are about as good in different ways|Triad Opinion=I prefer the Just Intoned triad|Harpsichord Tune Opinion=I prefer the Just Intoned harpsichord|;;;

71.75.212.6;2009-05-12 09:47;Don't label your downloads with the name of the tuning method. Also, create a random order of either A or B being the 12 equal version. You want your feedback and research to be "blinded" and unbiased. Putting the 12 equal version label on it and placing it first in the selection creates a selection bias to the listener. The bias may only amount to a small variation, nonetheless, it will be statiscally significant enough to produce poor or inaccurate feedback data.;Ripple Opinion=I prefer the 12 equal ripple by a whisker|Triad Opinion=I prefer the 12 equal triad|Harpsichord Tune Opinion=I think both 12 Equal and Just harpsichords are about as good in different ways|;;;

173.11.55.205;2009-12-17 17:46;You have a very interesting page here, and I wanted to draw your attention to a couple factors. (If you want to get in touch further you can email me at storgodar[{name is at}]gmail.com) My own background is both in science, neuroscience and physics in particular, and in the arts, particularly language. These often converge in my teaching one or the other subject, particularly in regards to general factors in information theory and processing. One thing you may want to incorporate into your investigations is the delicate interplay between symmetry and broken symmetry in human attention and aesthetics. That is, in brief, humans have just as powerful an aversion to perfect symmetry as to randomness, which might argue that the appeal of ET is that it is quasi-periodic, not perfectly periodic. At the same time, it would also argue how, with various cultural conditions, alternative tunings that suggest convergence on 12-tone ET and yet "brek" those "rules" can have great appeal; just as something like Pythagorean tuning may be TOO symmetric to appeal as much as ET to most people, someone conditioned on an overload of Western music might find ET too symmetric, and thus, say, Gamelan tuning is refreshing. Anyway, I think you're onto some interesting ideas here, but like a lot of commentary I see on music and tuning, I think it would benefit from looking at and incorporating a lot more about human cognition and information processing generalities from outside of "music" to help explain things.

In 1981 during an university introduction to music class, I garnished a bit of laughter from 
classmates but managed to baffle the instructor with the above question "why is there 12 notes in a scale rather than, say, 15". She moved on rather quickly stating that it is western music we are studying.

Judging by the content of this page, you HAVE to check out a few links. Turns out there is a strong link between "isomorphic keyboards" (like the hexagonal lattice you referenced on your page) and alternate tunings. That is, not only do they have the same fingering in every key, but they can have the same fingering in multiple tunings as well. 
 
Firstly, check this note layout: 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wicki-Hayden_note_layout 
 
It is one of the isomorphic layouts that has the potential for the same fingering for multiple tunings. Similar to the hexagonal layout you showed on your page, but defined differently allowing for the link to tuning. Notice how on this layout there are different buttons for each enharmonic equivalent. That's part of the secret. The other part is arranging the notes in a way so that, even with the extra pitches, it's still equally easy to play as it is with just 12. 
 
Next, check out this (free) synthesizer: 
http://www.dynamictonality.com/2032.htm 
 
It actually maps your QWERTY keyboard to that isomorphic layout I linked to, and then lets you adjust the tuning of that layout in real time according to this pattern: 
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/bc/Syntonic_Tuning_Continuum.jpg 
 
If you want to play the major scale in a 12, 19, 31, or even a 53 tone tuning, you can do it with the same fingering using the layout the synth maps your QWERTY to. The tuning changes, but the fingering stays the same. 
 
Also, a setting on the synth lets you adjust whether or not the timbre you use is fully harmonic, or whether the timbre is fully aligned with the notes of the current tuning, like you did manually above. 
 
Seems like you've really got good instincts man. This synth is based on some recent breakthroughs linking psychoacoustics and note lattices, but most of the concepts you'd already come up with intuitively.;Know Tuning=Yes - even before I visited this web site, I recognised the subtle difference between the sound of Just Intonation and 12-equal|Ear quality=Good to Very Good|Ripple Opinion=I prefer the Just Intoned ripple|Triad Opinion=I prefer the Just Intoned triad by a whisker|Harpsichord Tune Opinion=I think both 12 Equal and Just harpsichords are about as good in different ways|;;;

78.148.156.20;2011-09-02 00:12;I don't think there's much point in arguing that 12-TET isn't a compromise, but that doesn't mean that it's wrong in any way. The thing is, there is no right or wrong way: we have an infinite number of notes, and different tuning systems just have their different flavours. Just intonation has a lot of problems in that it is difficult to apply it to musical instruments, but when used correctly it can sound great. 
 
The thing is, you can't just tune an instrument (let's say a hypothetical 1-string instument with JI frets) to a JI scale in C and expect to be able to play consonant triads (as arpeggios, of course, given our hypothetical solitary string), it's just not going to work because, for example, the interval between C + wholetone and C + major sixth is not a perfect fifth, and so on, so you cannot simply play a basic chord progression like C, Dm, G and expect it to sound consonant (incidentally, this is also why it is unfair to compare a JI system and an ET system with a listening test consisting of the same piece of music played in both systems, though a comparison of intervals in isolation seems fair enough). You can sort of get around this problem by adding more strings tuned to different pitches, thus allowing certain 'key changes' but by introducing more options you will increase the number of different intervals and notes at your disposal, and this obviously means that in order to maintain just intonation when playing in these 'keys' you would have to introduce yet more strings, so eventually you would have an infinite number of strings, hence inventions such as well temperament and equal temperament. 
 
This doesn't mean that JI is wrong: with computers (and theoretically certain instruments like the human voice) we can create music that shifts through an infinite number of these so-called keys, maintaining just intevals the entire time. 
 
This infinity is the reason that all JI tuning systems are necessarily compromises just as much as equal- or well-tempered tunings are compromises. And so if we want to create consonant music without using a computer we have to either compromise just intervals in one way or another, or work in small corners of the infinitude of harmony, or try to work with the intervals in clever ways, like dismissing the traditional idea of what a key is completely. The skill in composing consonantly using purely just intervals lies in working around such problems. However, dissonance is often a desirable quality in music, which means that anything goes, really. I particularly like the 12-TET tritone (600 cents), but it's all a matter of personal preference. I think the systems are all valid, and each of them can be used to create both good and bad music, but 12-TET is more manageable and easier to work with than these other systems and sounds pretty damn good too, so I don't have a problem with it.;Know Tuning=Yes - even before I visited this web site, I recognised the subtle difference between the sound of Just Intonation and 12-equal|Ear quality=Excellent - I believe my ear to be very sharp|Ripple Opinion=I think both 12 Equal and Just ripples are about as good in different ways|Triad Opinion=I prefer the 12 equal triad|Harpsichord Tune Opinion=I think both 12 Equal and Just harpsichords are about as good in different ways|;;;

The long triad chord test made the difference most stark to me. I really didn't like the JI chords played right after the ET... the JI sounded wobbly. However, when I played the JI chords after a few minutes, alone, they sounded still off, but slightly more "cool", I guess... I have no idea if I've heard anything but ET before this. I've never wondered when I've heard something that sounds slightly off if it was because it was tuned differently.

76.91.70.62;2011-10-22 01:13;Heyo! I wrote my IB extended essay upon alternate tuning systems. 12TET bothered me, and I wanted an explanation for this, but I approached things based purely on math. The more psychological question of "what do we perceive as harmoniouis" always seemed to defy my calculations. I basically had to draw the line somewhere or else my calculations wouldn't make sense. I wandered around aimlessly trying to figure out how to judge error. I even messed around with Statistical T-Tests, but ran into issues of judging error from JI. (Ha, i ran into problems with choosing units. Hz wouldnt satisfy because it doesn't deal with the exponential nature of sound, so i experimented with Savarts, Cents, and Millioctaves. My results were a jumble of crappy statistics and nothing difinitive.) Too much was based upon subjectivity. In the end, i made four assumptions to base my calculations, threw away all the terrible statistics and comparisons to JI, and long story short, the result found 3 different 19 toned equal tempered systems to be the least harmonically wrong. But of course, what was the practicality? What if it didn't sound right? uurgghh it bothered me. too much subjectivity.

166.137.139.4;2011-11-04 20:48;I have a preference to the A versions, but they were somewhat close. I felt the tone separation was a little better, making the harmony clearer, if that makes sense? I went in knowing everyone hears things differently, and what pleases me more may not please others more. I guess I'm in the majority, with my tonal wood preference for acoustic guitars being rosewood back and sides with a spruce top, the most preferred. Funny, but my guitar tech and another close friend who teaches guitar, both prefer mahogany. When I bought my last 2 guitars, I tried an experiment. I chose 15 guitars based on looks to begin. I then played all 15 blind-folded wearing headphone so I couldn't hear, wanting to see which I preferred the feel of. Lastly, I played all 10 just blind folded so I could only hear, not wanting looks to affect my choice. Although there were several different wood combinations, I chose the 4 with rosewood back and sides with a spruce top in the hearing only portion. For feel only, my preference was for the smaller bodied short scale guitars. I had narrowed it down to a single guitar!! Unfortunately, I didn't have the 8 thousand dollars to purchase the guitar, but should I save up enough someday, I know exactly what I'll buy. At 50 with arthritis, my large bodied guitar days are over, and playing strictly for family and friends, mostly songs I write, I know the guitar I want to take me to the grave!! Cool survey!!

86.1.78.19;2012-01-07 02:21;In the first test I preferred equal temperament (by a whisker) but to my surprise, I clearly preferred just intonation for the harpsichord tune!

I think B is therefore ET and can't wait to see the answer...

In the blind test, I preferred A as it sounded more in tune during the minor chord part when compared to the minor chord in B, strangely I think I preferred the major chord in version B.

e.g. 2/3 ^2 = 4/9 
then times by 2, octave higher= 8/9 
 
then the fourth position is this squared = 64/81 
64/81~64/80=4/5 
 
more of approximations only by subtracting 1 from top or bottom (or both) of fraction.

The other tests seem valid, and I can easily distinguish between ET and JI, and prefer JI in all cases other than those in which the aforementioned "murderous D" problem is encountered.;Know Tuning=Yes - even before I visited this web site, I recognised the subtle difference between the sound of Just Intonation and 12-equal|Ear quality=Excellent - I believe my ear to be very sharp|Ripple Opinion=I prefer the Just Intoned ripple|Triad Opinion=I prefer the Just Intoned triad|Harpsichord Tune Opinion=I prefer the 12 equal harpsichord|;;;

74.83.58.125;2013-05-05 21:28;I really could have picked "about as good in different ways" for all of these; in each case the musical effect was slightly different. Sample B in both the Triad test and Harpsichord test sounded more explicit and less mushy than A. I liked how to the two voices on harpsichord test B were more defined and separate than sample A for the harpsichord test. In the triad test sample B was once again more polyphonic. In the ripple test, however, sample B sounded mushier near the end, as if things had gotten off-kilter and more harmonically dense.;Know Tuning=No - Prior to visiting this site, I didn't know the difference between the sound of Just Intonation and 12-equal|Ear quality=Average|Ripple Opinion=I prefer the 12 equal ripple by a whisker|Triad Opinion=I think both 12 Equal and Just triads are about as good in different ways|Harpsichord Tune Opinion=I prefer the Just Intoned harpsichord|;;;

And complex pieces such as the one on this site http://www.tallkite.com/videos.html have more color and variety to them. ;Know Tuning=Yes - even before I visited this web site, I recognised the subtle difference between the sound of Just Intonation and 12-equal|Ear quality=Good to Very Good|Ripple Opinion=I prefer the Just Intoned ripple|Triad Opinion=I prefer the Just Intoned triad|Harpsichord Tune Opinion=I prefer the Just Intoned harpsichord|;;;

110.149.138.32;2015-11-02 11:09;My experience (of several decades) in hearing, and in improvising and composing, music in both 12-EDO and various other tunings, including 5-limit JI, 17-EDO and on some Chinese stringed instruments where pitch is easily bent (have you ever listened to Chinese opera? or the Chinese 'fiddle' er-hu?) has taught me that each has its uses.  There's no single BEST tuning for every situation - and modern technology means we don't have to decide once and for all between the many candidates. But in general, precision of tuning only _materially_ changes the listening experience in certain styles of music where we can perceive each and every sound individually and clearly - e.g. a Chinese opera or tone-poem, a Carnatic or Hindustani raga, solo and small group vocal performances, especially including barbershop (where 7-limit harmonies are the norm).  For a marching band, a rock or pop-rock song, or even a fast solo instrumental like your harpsichord piece, there's simply too much _noise_, both internal to the band (generated by multiple interactions of its instrumental timbres), and perhaps in its typical listening environment, for even the most acute listeners to discern much about the tuning (the jnd is large),  But a slow popular ballad, e.g. "Superstar", affords plenty of opportunities to play with intonation to good musical effect.  (So my "Yes" answer to your first question should really have been "depends on style and environment".);Know Tuning=Yes - even before I visited this web site, I recognised the subtle difference between the sound of Just Intonation and 12-equal|Ear quality=Good to Very Good|Ripple Opinion=I prefer the Just Intoned ripple|Triad Opinion=I think both 12 Equal and Just triads are about as good in different ways|Harpsichord Tune Opinion=I think both 12 Equal and Just harpsichords are about as good in different ways|;;;
