# 1230edo

← 1229edo | 1230edo | 1231edo → |

**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 2^{1/1230}, 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).
