Comparison between equal-tempered (red) and Pythagorean (blue) intervals showing the relationship between frequency ratio and the intervals' values, in cents. Note that one octave equals 1200 cents.

Below is a list of musical intervals encountered in tuning or temperament.

For commonly encountered harmonic or melodic intervals between pairs of notes in contemporary Western music theory which are independent of the way in which they are tuned, see Interval (music) § Main intervals.

Some terminology used in the list:

  • In music, the prime limit (henceforth referred to simply as the limit) is a number measuring the harmony of an interval. The lower the number, the more consonant the interval is considered to be. It is defined as the largest prime number occurring in the factorizations of the numerator and denominator of the frequency ratio. The limit of the just perfect fourth (4 : 3) is 3, but the just minor tone (10 : 9) has a limit of 5, because 9 can be factorized into 3·3, and 10 into 2·5. There exists another type of limit, the odd limit, which differs slightly from the prime limit, but is not used here.
    • Any n-limit entry is also m-limit for m>n.
  • Pythagorean means 3-limit just intonation—a ratio of numbers with prime factors no higher than three.
  • Just means 5-limit just intonation—a ratio of numbers with prime factors no higher than five.
  • Similarly, septimal, undecimal, tridecimal, and septendecimal mean, respectively, 7, 11, 13, and 17-limit just intonation.
  • By definition every tone in a 3-limit unit can also be part of a 5-limit tuning and so on. By sorting the limit column all tones of that limit can be brought together (tip: sort backwards by clicking the button twice).
  • Meantone refers to meantone temperament, the most common of which is quarter-comma meantone. In general, a meantone is constructed the same way as Pythagorean tuning, as a stack of perfect fifths, but in a meantone, each fifth is narrowed by the same small amount (a portion of the syntonic comma such as 1/4).
  • Equal-tempered refers to X-tone equal temperament with intervals corresponding to X multiples per octave.
  • Since the table is sortable, you can also sort the table by frequency ratio, by cents or alphabetically.
