# 298edo

← 297edo | 298edo | 299edo → |

**298 equal divisions of the octave** (abbreviated **298edo** or **298ed2**), also called **298-tone equal temperament** (**298tet**) or **298 equal temperament** (**298et**) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 298 equal parts of about 4.03 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 2^{1/298}, or the 298th root of 2.

## Theory

298edo is enfactored in the 5-limit and only consistent in the 5-odd-limit, with the same tuning as 149edo. Since 149edo is notable for being the smallest edo distinctly consistent in the 17-odd-limit, 298edo is related to 149edo – it retains the mapping for harmonics 2, 3, 5, and 17 but differs on the mapping for 7, 11, 13. Using the patent val, the equal temperament tempers out the rastma in the 11-limit, splitting 3/2 inherited from 149edo into two steps representing 11/9. It also tempers out the ratwolfsma in the 13-limit. It supports the bison temperament and the rank-3 temperament hemimage. In the 2.5.11.13 subgroup, 298edo supports emka. In the full 13-limit, 298edo supports an unnamed 77 & 298 temperament with 13/8 as its generator.

Aside from the patent val, there is a number of mappings to be considered. One can approach 298edo's vals as a double of 149edo again, by simply viewing its prime harmonics as variations from 149edo by its own half-step. The 298d val, ⟨298 472 692 **836** 1031], which includes 149edo's 7-limit tuning, is better tuned than the patent val in the 11-limit (though not in the 17-limit). It supports hagrid, in addition to the 31 & 298d variant and the 118 & 298d variant of hemithirds. Some of the commas it tempers out make for much more interesting temperaments than the patent val – for example it still tempers out 243/242, but now it adds 1029/1024, 3136/3125, and 9801/9800.

The 298cd val, ⟨298 472 **691** **836** 1031] supports miracle.

In higher limits, 298edo has excellent representation of the 2.5.11.17.23.43.53.59 subgroup, with all the harmonics having errors of less than 10 r¢. A comma basis for the 2.5.11.17.23.43.53.59 subgroup is {1376/1375, 3128/3127, 4301/4300, 25075/25069, 38743/38720, 58351/58300, 973360/972961}.
