1230 equal divisions of the octave (abbreviated 1230edo or 1230ed2), also called 1230-tone equal temperament (1230tet) or 1230 equal temperament (1230et) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 1230 equal parts of about 0.976 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 21/1230, or the 1230th root of 2.

1230edo is consistent to the 5-odd-limit, but harmonic 3 is about halfway between its steps. As every other step of 2460edo, it is excellent in approximating harmonics 5, 7, 9, 11, 19, and 23, making it suitable for a 2.9.5.7.11.19.23 subgroup interpretation, on which it is identical to 2460edo.

Miscellaneous properties

1230edo could be called a "highly Kartvelian edo" because it supports the largest number of scales dividing its patent val 4/3 and 3/2 into even parts relative to its size. See Kartvelian scales.

Subsets and supersets

Since 1230 factors into 2 × 3 × 5 × 41, 1230edo has subset edos 2, 3, 5, 6, 10, 15, 30, 41, 82, 123, 205, 246, 410, and 615. A step of 1230edo is exactly 2 minas (2\2460).
