Scale of the Day: F Lydian mapped to the 3/2
The F Lydian mapped to the 3/2 Scale. The octave-based version of the Lydian Scale has a perfect fifth 1.96-cents shy of the just 3/2. This scale gets around that discrepancy by shrinking the entire scale to fit within the 3/2. That 3/2 becomes the new harmonic equivalent (and octaves cease to exist in the form we're most familiar with). And the sound takes on something completely different from the standard Lydian-ness.
