← 1943edo | 1944edo | 1945edo → |

^{3}× 3^{5}**1944 equal divisions of the octave** (abbreviated **1944edo**), or **1944-tone equal temperament** (**1944tet**), **1944 equal temperament** (**1944et**) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 1944 equal parts of about 0.617 ¢ each. Each step of 1944edo represents a frequency ratio of 2^{1/1944}, or the 1944th root of 2.

## Theory

1944edo is consistent in the 5-odd-limit to which it provides good approximation, and a near-perfect 15/8, but it is only consistent that far since harmonic 7 is about halfway between its steps. In the 5-limit, it tempers out the luna comma, [38 -2 -15⟩. In the 1944d val in the 7-limit, it is a landscape system tempering out 250047/250000, and as a consequence it tunes the 24th-octave chromium temperament, providing a tuning close to POTE tuning.

In higher limits, 1944edo is a tuning for the jamala temperament in the 2.5.11.13.19.41.47 subgroup, for which 1944edo provides good approximation (except for the 13th harmonic). Overall, the best subgroup for 1944edo is 2.3.5.11.17.19.29.31.41.47.
