Therefore, your maximum is not correct.

What the fuck are you talking about? A proportion of 15/16? Your post makes no sense.

There are TWELVE distinct notes in western music; forget about butchering music theory and just count them. Ergo, it follows logically that my combinatorical calculations hold.
