GlossyScales.TXT List of Selected Musical Scales
Below is a list of 42 named musical scales, which have been selected from the complete AllScales list of 532 scales in the Musical Scales List that is displayed when the Scale dialog is open for a MIDI Voice Setup.
The selection process used listening tests of random note sequences via GlossyTracks. The chosen scales did not necessarily give pleasing results under all tests, but they at least gave interesting results on some of the tests.
This list also appears as the GlossyScales.TXT file in the Documents - Daqarta - User_Data - MIDI_Setup folder, as noted in the List Of Included Daqarta Files
The first column is the numerical value of the scale, obtained from the binary equivalent of the second column that shows which notes of the octave starting with C are included.
The third column is the common name, of which there may not be universal agreement, but which is convenient to use.
