Equal Temperament

There are many different scaling or tuning systems that define how individual notes are tuned in relation to each other. Equal Temperament is a Scaling system where the octave (see WFTD archive octave) is divided into 12 equal parts. The ratio of the frequencies between any two adjacent notes is exactly the same. Most keyboard instruments are scaled in this manner.
