393 equal divisions of the octave (abbreviated 393edo or 393ed2), also called 393-tone equal temperament (393tet) or 393 equal temperament (393et) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 393 equal parts of about 3.05 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 21/393, or the 393rd root of 2.

## Theory

393et is only consistent to the 5-limit, with three mappings possible for the 7-limit:

• 393 623 913 1103] (patent val),
• 393 623 912 1103] (393c),
• 393 623 913 1104] (393d).

Using the patent val, it tempers out 393216/390625 and [-46 51 -15 in the 5-limit; 10976/10935, 393216/390625 and 5250987/5242880 in the 7-limit.

Using the 393c val, it tempers out 2109375/2097152 and [32 -48 19 in the 5-limit; 2401/2400, 1071875/1062882 and 2109375/2097152 in the 7-limit.

Using the 393d val, it tempers out 393216/390625 and [-46 51 -15 in the 5-limit; 250047/250000, 2460375/2458624 and 2097152/2083725 in the 7-limit.
