SRUTIAS APPROXIMATED IN 72 TONE EQUAL TEMPERAMENT 

SRUTI IN E 

The +/ one
keyboard idea makes perfect sense.


The ´sruti is not a tempered interval. Not all srutis are equal . . . . . . Like every practical division of the octave, the division of the srutis is theoretically insufficient, . . . The term ´sruti, like the Greek quarter tone, refers to the displacement of a note by an interval smaller than a half tone in order to obtain a harmonically accurate interval. ... Western . . . notation is in fact based on the triple septenary of seven naturals, seven sharps, and seven flats. If the octave is added, this gives 3 x 7 + 1 = 22.
