12edf
← 11edf | 12edf | 13edf → |
12EDF is the equal division of the just perfect fifth into 12 parts of 58.49625 cents each, corresponding to 20.5141 edo (similar to every second step of 41edo). It is an intersection of 3edf~5edo and 4edf~7edo relations, and could pass as both 20edo and 21edo, with both relations nearly breaking down by this point. It is related to the dodecacot temperament, which tempers out 3087/3125 and 10976/10935 in the 7-limit.
It is a strong 3/2.5/2.7/2 subgroup system, a fact first noted by CompactStar, tempering out the commas 10976/10935 and 3125/3087, although the representation of 11/2 is more questionable. 24edf (effectively 41edo) provides a correction for 11/2. It contains the microdiatonic scale that corresponds to 12edo's diatonic scale with 2/1 compressed to 3/2.
