Hi there folks. Yeah, lately this subject has come to surface quite often and made me think about it. My knowledge on this is VERY limited, so I'm recruiting yours to be more aware about what is out there to experiment and specially, to hear. What I've gathered so far is that the "temperament" is how the octave is divided, but there are more than one way to do so. So, lets make this thread about this and see where it goes to. I know that there are already some threads on this, but I believe those are yet a bit sophisticated. I was into "start from scratch". Equal Temperament, Just Temperament, others, Micro tonal... what else is out there, what are the differences between those...? A piano or a guitar is a tempered instrument, but a violin is...? Yah, I know, BASICS, sorry... What say you?
