 In reply to this post by harish3679 This is the Pythagorean comma: octave> 1.5^12/2^7 ans =  1.0136 This is a cent: octave> 2^(1/1200) ans =  1.0006 This is the Pythagorean comma in cents: octave> log(1.5^12/2^7) / log(2^(1/1200)) ans =  23.460 -- IPIN'19 http://ipin2019.isti.cnr.it    Voice:  +39.050.621.3058 Francesco Potortì (ricercatore)        Mobile: +39.348.8283.107 ISTI - Area della ricerca CNR          Skype:  wnlabisti via G.
