Messiaen Scale Generator

This app will generate Messiaen scales (musical) based on the input settings below. A Messiaen scale (named after French composer Olivier Messiaen) is scale which features "modes of limited transposition". In short, any scale where the number of different modes equals the number of notes in the scale, is not a mode of limited transposition. In other words, there is some intervallic symmetry within the scale. For more details, refer to the Wikipedia page. You can grab the code from my GitHub page.
