Equal interval methodLyle "Spud" Murphy spent many years teaching his composing and arranging process and among the noted musicians who trained under him were the pianists Oscar Peterson, Herbie Hancock and Gerald "Wig" Wiggins, the trumpeter Quincy Jones and the flautist Buddy Collette. David Blumberg, who wrote arrangements for the Grammy-winning Ray Charles album Genius Loves Company, teaches courses on Murphy's method, which he describes as "a simple way to deal with 12 notes by using six intervals. And that use of six intervals, when mastered, would allow anyone to write any style of music freely." The method, says Blumberg, "is an encyclopaedia of musical tools that you can use all your life"
Equalisation(English, German f.) the result of using a device called an 'equaliser'

Equal temperamenttemperamento igual (Spanish), temperamento equabile (Italian), tempérament égal (French), gleichschwebende Stimmung (German)
the modern method of tuning, also called '12-tet', '12-eq', '12edo', '12-et' or '12-equal', where the interval of an octave is exact (2:1) and the interval, expressed as the ratio of the two frequencies, between each successive semitone is equal to the twelfth root of 2 (i.e. 2^(1/12))
Tom Dent, in a contribution to the clavichord yahoo group, writes "Every equal temperament can be obtained by dividing the octave into equal intervals. Every equal temperament (including those with 19, 31, etc. notes per octave) is regular, but not every regular temperament is equal. A regular temperament is equal if and only if it has a closed cycle of fifths - i.e. you get back to the starting pitch after a fixed number of steps."

frequency Hz (octaves)









































































by removing the twelfth root of the Pythagorean comma from each interval in a chain of twelve fifths (3/2), the Pythagorean 3-limit scale is tempered to fit the 2-limit equal temperament (based on powers of 2/1)
various equal temperaments:12-tone : 19-tone : 22-tone : 24-tone : 31-tone : 53-tone : 72-tone
