Scale of the Day: E Flat Whole-tone no 2 mapped to the Square-root-of-2
The E Flat Whole-tone no 2 Scale mapped to the Square-root-of-2 Scale as one would find it on any conventionally tuned, equal tempered instrument. The first pentatonic "scale of the day" in square-root-of-2 space. And it inherits the whole-tone anomaly of being a scale with the 600-cent "tritone" as the interval of harmonic equivalence without requiring a complete re-tuning of most instruments.
