‘Precise Temperament Tuning’ a geometrical approach to music temperament replacing the Just Intonation’s Major Third interval (1.25 or 5/4) with 1.26. In this approach, the MINOR (3rd) interval FALLS (from 1.2 to 1.19) and the MAJOR (3rd) interval LIFTS (increasing from 1.25 to 1.26)

By combining 1.26 as the Major Third and a perfect 1.5 (3/2) as the Perfect Fifth I found that a new and complete musical scale could be derived that might overcome some of the limitations of Equal Temperament Tuning and allow for a direct connection to all geometrical expression.

In this video, Toni shows us his analysis. Toni has even gone as far as making a software plugin so that others may use this new tuning. I would like to thank  Toni for his efforts to bring this novel tuning approach to the world!
