Another TIL: The ratio of one equally tempered half step is the twelfth root of 2. #musictheory

Maybe, sometime these days, I will even understand the math behind equal temperament (which, to this day, I don't, but I guess it was just never explained to me in a way I understand).


@draco If you're interested, this book goes into the maths and effects of the various tuning systems at great length.
