Scale of the Day: E Octave Subdivided - 2 Equal [NULL/2Equal]

The E Octave subdivided: 2 Equal [NULL/2 Equal] Scale as one would find it on any conventionally tuned, equal tempered instrument. The name is descriptive. Take an octave, divide it with an interval 600 cents (exactly one half of a 1200 cent octave). Do not divide the first 600 cent interval (the NULL), but do divide the interval between 600 and 1200 with the 900 cent member with 300 cents between its neighboring scale members. This is a subtractive variant of the straight octave subdivision scale I explored earlier.
