Five limit

The 5-limit parent comma for the schismatic family is the schisma of 32805/32768, which is the amount by which the Pythagorean comma exceeds the Didymus comma (81/80), or alternatively put, the difference between a just major third and a Pythagorean diminished fourth. Its monzo is |-15 8 1>, and flipping that yields <<1 -8 -15|| for the wedgie. This tells us the generator is a fifth and that we will need eight fourths in succession to reach the pitch class of a major third. In fact, 10 = (4/3)^8 * 32805/32768.

The 5-limit version of the temperament is a microtemperament, sometimes called Helmholtz or schismatic, which flattens the fifth by a fraction of a schisma, but some other members of the family are less accurate. As a 5-limit system, it is far more accurate than meantone but still with manageable complexity. 53edo is a possible tuning for schismatic, but you need 118edo if you want to get the full effect. In exact analogy with 1/4 comma meantone there is also 1/8 schisma schismatic, with pure major thirds and fifths flattened by 1/8 schisma. Since 1/8 of a schisma is 0.244 cents, this falls into the range of microtempering.

Seven limit children

The second comma of the normal comma list defines which 7-limit family member we are looking at. Adding |25 -14 0 -1> gives garibaldi, |-44 26 0 1> grackle, |6 -2 0 -1> schism and |-59 39 0 -1> pontiac; these all have a fifth as generator. Bischismic adds |-69 40 0 2> and has a fifth generator with a half-octave period. Guiron adds 1029/1024 = |-10 1 0 3>, with an 8/7 generator, three of which give the fifth, and term adds |-94 54 0 3> with a 1/3 octave period. Sesquiquartififths adds |-35 15 0 4> and slices the fifth in four.
