Scale of the Day: F Sharp Square-root-of-2 subdivided: 2 equal [2 equal/2 equal]
The F Sharp Square-root-of-2 subdivided: 2 equal [2 equal/2equal] Scale. Take an equal tempered "tritone," divide it in half, and divide the respective halves in half. This gives four consecutive 150-cent steps (an interval exactly half-way between an equal tempered minor third, or one quarter-tone less than a whole-tone) for a sequence that cycles at the "tritone."
