**129 equal divisions of the octave** (abbreviated **129edo** or **129ed2**), also called **129-tone equal temperament** (**129tet**) or **129 equal temperament** (**129et**) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 129 equal parts of about 9.3 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 2^{1/129}, or the 129th root of 2.

129edo is inconsistent to the 5-odd-limit and both harmonics 3 and 5 are about halfway between its steps. The patent val is enfactored in the 5-limit, with the same tuning as 43edo. It is the last patent val that tempers out 81/80 so as to support meantone and its higher-limit expansions. It also tempers out 1029/1024 and 1728/1715 in the 7-limit; 176/175 and 540/539 in the 11-limit; 507/500, 676/675 and 847/845 in the 13-limit; 221/220 in the 17-limit; 171/170 and 286/285 in the 19-limit. It provides the optimal patent val for the 11-limit rank-3 clio temperament.
