^{2}× 13 × 31**1612 equal divisions of the octave** (abbreviated **1612edo** or **1612ed2**), also called **1612-tone equal temperament** (**1612tet**) or **1612 equal temperament** (**1612et**) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 1612 equal parts of about 0.744 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 2^{1/1612}, or the 1612th root of 2.

1612edo is a strong 5-limit system, but it is only consistent to the 5-odd-limit since harmonics 7 and 11 are about halfway between its steps. Nonetheless, the patent val is a strong 2.3.5.13.17.23.29.31 subgroup tuning.

It provides a tuning for quasithird, aluminium and counterorson temperaments in the 5-limit.

### Subsets and supersets

Since 1612 factors into 2^{2} × 13 × 31, 1612edo has subset edos 2, 4, 13, 26, 31, 52, 62, 124, 403, and 806. 3224edo, which doubles 1612edo, corrects the mapping for 7 and 11.
