2072 equal divisions of the octave (abbreviated 2072edo or 2072ed2), also called 2072-tone equal temperament (2072tet) or 2072 equal temperament (2072et) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 2072 equal parts of about 0.579 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 21/2072, or the 2072nd root of 2.

2072edo is consistent in the 17-odd-limit, as well as a strong 5-limit tuning, tempering out kwazy, [-53 10 16, [-33 97 -52, and barium comma, [-225 224 -56, equating 81/80 to 1/56th of the octave. It provides the optimal patent val for the barium temperament in the 13-limit. It tempers out the euzenius comma in the 7-limit.

2072edo contains the 2.7.11 mapping of 296edo.
