An experiment to compare the acceptability of three different music fragments rendered with three different intonations is presented. These preference results were contrasted with those of isolated chords also rendered with the same three intonations. The least rough renditions were found to be those using Twelve-Tone Equal- Temperament (12-tet). Just Intonation (ji) renditions were the roughest. A negative correlation between preference and psychoacoustic roughness was also found.
