Tuning Charts

A justly tuned harmony will sound more stable, rich, and pure than its equal tempered counterpart. Just intonation is achieved by tuning all the component pitches of a chord to the partials of a harmonic series. Below are a collection of charts which detail how to tune various standard harmonies to just intonation. For a more detailed comparison of just intonation with equal temperament, see the Tonalness Theory website.
