# 21st-octave temperaments

This page collectes temperaments with a period of 1/21 of an octave.

Although 21edo itself is not remarkably accurate for low-complexity harmonics, some temperaments which are multiples of 21, such as 441, 1407, and 1848 are. 441 and 1848 are also members of zeta edo list.

### Vasca

Vasca can be described as the 357 & 525 temperament, extended as high as the 23-limit. It tempers out the [95 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 -21⟩, and sets a stack of 21 23/16's equal with 11 octaves. The name derives from elements vanadium (23) and scandium (21), since this uses the 23rd harmonic, which itself is extremely well represented in 21edo.
