105edo
← 104edo | 105edo | 106edo → |
105 equal divisions of the octave (abbreviated 105edo or 105ed2), also called 105-tone equal temperament (105tet) or 105 equal temperament (105et) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 105 equal parts of about 11.4 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 2^{1/105}, or the 105th root of 2.
Theory
105edo is most notable as a tuning of meantone and in particular higher-limit extensions of meantone, such as grosstone and Huygens. It tempers out 81/80 in the 5-limit; 81/80, 126/125 and hence 225/224 in the 7-limit; 99/98, 176/175 and 441/440 in the 11-limit; and if we want to push that far, 144/143 in the 13-limit. This is the sharper fifth mapping of 11-limit meantone (aka huygens rather than meanpop), for which it gives the optimal patent val, and provides a good tuning for the 13-limit extension, though 74edo is in that case the optimal patent val. 105edo's meantone fifth is nearly identical to the CTE generator for meantone.
