So your system is using Just tuning for roots, and then tuning 3rds and 5ths relative to the chord root?
What about 7ths, etc? Are those tuned by ratio to the key, or do they use dynamic tuning?
Does it distinguish between the Major Tone and Minor Tone? What about the Grave Seventh and Harmonic Seventh?
What are the conditions that would make it choose any of the above?
And finally, how are augmented 4ths and diminished 5ths dealt with? Are they always ±10 cents, 17 cents, or 31 cents? Is the tuning fixed, or dynamic?
No the system is dynamic, and it is not striving for Just Intonation, but for consonance and melodic direction. It makes the same intonation decisions a live musician would do in the context of the music and in the relation to the musicians around him.
