1817 equal divisions of the octave (abbreviated 1817edo or 1817ed2), also called 1817-tone equal temperament (1817tet) or 1817 equal temperament (1817et) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 1817 equal parts of about 0.66 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 21/1817, or the 1817th root of 2.

1817edo distinctly consistent in the 17-odd-limit, and a fairly strong 17-limit system. Past that, adding the mapping for 29 is worth considering.

In the 5-limit, it is a strong tuning for tricot. It also tempers out are [128 13 -64, the 323 & 1171 temperament, which divides the third harmonic into 64 equal parts, as well as [-89 -42 67 and [-50 -71 70. In the 7-limit, it tempers out 4375/4374 (the ragisma). In the 11-limit it tempers out 117649/117612, 2097152/2096325, and tunes rank-3 temperaments heimdall and bragi. In the 13-limit, it tempers out 4096/4095, 6656/6655, and in the 17-limit, 12376/12375 and 14400/14399.

In the 17-limit and the 2.3.5.7.11.13.17.37 subgroup (add-37 17-limit), the patent val tunes the gold temperament which divides the octave into 79 parts, though it is worth noting that the error on the 37th harmonic is quite large.
