1920 equal divisions of the octave (abbreviated 1920edo or 1920ed2), also called 1920-tone equal temperament (1920tet) or 1920 equal temperament (1920et) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 1920 equal parts of exactly 0.625 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 21/1920, or the 1920th root of 2.

Theory

1920edo is distinctly consistent through the 25-odd-limit, and in terms of 23-limit relative error, only 1578 and 1889 are both smaller and with a lower relative error. In the 29-limit, only 1578 beats it, and in the 31-, 37-, 41-, 43- and 47-limit, nothing beats it. Because of this and because it is a very composite number divisible by 12, it is another candidate for interval size measure.
