# 2684edo

← 2683edo | 2684edo | 2685edo → |

^{2}× 11 × 61**2684 equal divisions of the octave** (abbreviated **2684edo** or **2684ed2**), also called **2684-tone equal temperament** (**2684tet**) or **2684 equal temperament** (**2684et**) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 2684 equal parts of about 0.447 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 2^{1/2684}, or the 2684th root of 2.

## Theory

2684edo is an extremely strong 13-limit system, with a lower 13-limit relative error than any division until we reach 5585edo. It is distinctly consistent through the 17-odd-limit, and is both a zeta peak and zeta integral edo. It is enfactored in the 2.3.5.13 subgroup, with the same tuning as 1342edo, tempering out kwazy, [-53 10 16⟩, senior, [-17 62 -35⟩ and egads, [-36 52 51⟩. A 13-limit comma basis is {9801/9800, 10648/10647, 140625/140608, 196625/196608, 823680/823543}; it also tempers out 123201/123200. It is less accurate, but still quite accurate in the 17-limit; a comma basis is {4914/4913, 5832/5831, 9801/9800, 10648/10647, 28561/28560, 140625/140608}.

In higher limits, 2684edo is a good no-19s 31-limit tuning, with errors of 25% or less on all harmonics (except 19).

### Subsets and supersets

Since 2684 factors into 2^{2} × 11 × 61, 2684edo has subset edos 2, 4, 11, 22, 44, 61, 122, 244, 671, and 1342.

2684edo tunes the septimal comma, 64/63, to an exact 1/44th of the octave (61 steps). As a corollary, it supports the period-44 ruthenium temperament.

- 2684et holds a record for the lowest relative error in the 13-limit, past 2190 and is only bettered by 5585, which is more than twice its size. In terms of absolute error, it is narrowly beaten by 3395.
- 2684et is also notable in the 11-limit, where it has the lowest absolute error, past 1848 and before 3395.
