Special properties

180 equal divisions of the octave (abbreviated 180edo or 180ed2), also called 180-tone equal temperament (180tet) or 180 equal temperament (180et) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 180 equal parts of about 6.67 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 21/180, or the 180th root of 2.

The equal temperament tempers out 531441/524288 (pythagorean comma) and 30958682112/30517578125 (trisedodge comma) in the 5-limit, as well as 31381059609/30517578125 (mowgli comma) and 274877906944/274658203125 (hemithirds comma); 1029/1024, 3136/3125, and 118098/117649 in the 7-limit.

Using the patent val, it tempers out 540/539, 2835/2816, 4000/3993, and 6912/6875 in the 11-limit; 351/350, 364/363, 1001/1000, and 1701/1690 in the 13-limit. Using the 180e val, it tempers out 385/384, 441/440, 3388/3375, and 216513/214375 in the 11-limit; 351/350, 1188/1183, 1287/1280, 1573/1568, and 3146/3125 in the 13-limit.
