375 equal divisions of the octave (abbreviated 375edo), or 375-tone equal temperament (375tet), 375 equal temperament (375et) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 375 equal parts of exactly 3.2 ¢ each. Each step of 375edo represents a frequency ratio of 21/375, or the 375th root of 2.

Theory

375edo is inconsistent to the 5-odd-limit and harmonic 3 is about halfway between its steps. It can be used as a temperament in the 2.9.5.7.13.17.19 subgroup, in which it tempers out 250047/250000, 589824/588245, and [8 7 -13 (parakleisma).

For the full 7-limit, the 375cd val is the best, where it tempers out 1029/1024 and 15625/15552, supporting tritikleismic. In the 11-limit it tempers out 385/384 and 441/440, supporting undecimal tritikleismic.

Using the patent val, it tempers out 6144/6125 and 177147/175616, supporting aufo. In the 11-limit it tempers out 540/539 and 5632/5625, supporting aufic and persephone.

Subsets and supersets

Since 375 factors into 3 × 53, 375edo has subset edos 3, 5, 15, 25, 75, and 125. 1175edo, which triples it, gives a good correction to the harmonic 3 and is consistent to the 15-odd-limit.
