^{6}× 31**1984 equal divisions of the octave** (abbreviated **1984edo** or **1984ed2**), also called **1984-tone equal temperament** (**1984tet**) or **1984 equal temperament** (**1984et**) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 1984 equal parts of about 0.605 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 2^{1/1984}, or the 1984th root of 2.

1984edo is consistent in the 7-odd-limit and is a mostly sharp system, with 3, 5, 7, 11, and 17 all tuned sharp. Harmonics 9 and 15, though, are tuned flat, which results in inconsistencies, that is, their direct approximations are not the same as the sum of their constituent odd harmonics' direct approximations: 9/1 is 6289 steps while 3/1 is 3145 steps (and 3145 + 3145 = 6290, ≠ 6289), and 15/1 is 7751 steps while 5/1 is 4607 steps (and 3145 + 4607 = 7752, ≠ 7751). 1984edo does, however, approximate the 2.9.19.31.33 subgroup well.

In the 7-limit the equal temperament tempers out the wizma (420175/419904), the garischisma (33554432/33480783), and the pessoalisma (2147483648/2144153025).
