The 2100 equal division divides the octave into 2100 parts of precisely 4/7 cents (0.5714 cents) each. The patent val tempers out 32805/32768 in the 5-limit and 2401/2400 in the 7-limit, and thereby provides an excellent tuning for 5-limit schismatic aka helmholtz temperament, and the 7-limit sesquiquartififths temperament. As with any equal division of this size, it supports a number of possible meantone tunings, but <2100 3319 4876 5890| is notable for being nearly identical to quarter-comma meantone.
