Bug | Beep | Mite
The 5-limit parent of the bug family is bug, a temperament of sorts which tempers out 27/25, the large limma, or approximately one step of 9edo. The monzo for 27/25 is |0 3 -2>, the dual of which is <<2 3 0||. The generator for bug is 5/3, two of which give the 3, and three of which give the 5. Bug may be described as the 4&5 temperament, and 14edo is a good bug tuning, though wide latitude in these matters is possible. 4, 5, or 9 note MOS are a place to start with it.

Bug has a 7-limit extension, beep, via the normal comma list [27/25, 36/35] which can also be obtained by adding 21/20. Beep has the curious property that if we know what the beep tempering is, and we know what the ennealimmal tempering is, we can reconstruct 7-limit JI.
