## UsageEdit

{{Interval | name=Major third | letter=E | just ratio=5:4 | just cents=386.31 | equal ratio=4/12 | equal cents=400 | bend=79,59 | limit=5 }}

approximately produces:

A letter name, letter, limit, and all ratios and cents are not required.

**name**=Generic interval (fifth) and quality (perfect), as text ("Perfect fifth")**letter**=letter spelling of the interval above C, as letter with accidentals ("G")**notation**=Method of notation used for the letter spelling; adds the file to the category for that method**limit**=prime limit, as a number (Pythagorean = "3"); adds the file to the category for that limit**just ratio**=interval ratio in just intonation, any form ("3/2" = "1.5")**just cents**=cent value in just intonation ("701.96")**equal ratio**=interval ratio in equal temperament, in the form of numbers of steps in the interval over the number of steps in the temperament (7 semitones/12-tet = "7/12")**equal cents**=cent value in equal temperament ("700")- (
**ratio**=interval ratio (3/2); tempered intervals such as 3:2÷(81:80)1/4 require this parameter rather than "equal ratio") - (
**cents**=cent value (696.58); to accompany the "ratio" parameter) **bend**=x and a y value (x,y); 0,64 = no pitch bend. See en:Help:Sibelius#MIDI pitch bend.

If neither "just ratio", "just ratio", nor "ratio" are supplied, the file is added to Category:Intervals missing ratios. If neither "just cents", "just cents", nor "cents" are supplied, the file is added to Category:Intervals missing cent values. If "just ratio" or "just cents" *are* supplied but a limit is *not*, the file is added to Category:Intervals missing limits.
