**319 equal divisions of the octave** (abbreviated **319edo** or **319ed2**), also called **319-tone equal temperament** (**319tet**) or **319 equal temperament** (**319et**) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 319 equal parts of about 3.76 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 2^{1/319}, or the 319th root of 2.

## Theory

319edo is consistent to the 7-odd-limit, but harmonic 3 is about halfway its steps. The full 11-limit patent val is nonetheless a reasonable interpretation since the lower harmonics all tend sharp. Using this val, it tempers out 6144/6125, 10976/10935, and [9 -10 9 -5⟩ in the 7-limit; 3025/3024, 4000/3993, 6250/6237, 15488/15435, 59290/59049, and 65536/65219 in the 11-limit. It supports mystery in the 5-limit and protolangwidge.

If we instead adopt the 2.9.… subgroup interpretation, then 2.9.15.21 is a good subgroup to start with.

### Subsets and supersets

Since 319 factors into 11 × 29, 319edo has 11edo and 29edo as its subsets. 638edo, which doubles it, gives a good correction to the harmonics 3, 5, and 7.
