436 equal divisions of the octave (abbreviated 436edo or 436ed2), also called 436-tone equal temperament (436tet) or 436 equal temperament (436et) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 436 equal parts of about 2.75 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 21/436, or the 436th root of 2.

Theory

436edo is consistent to the 23-odd-limit. The patent val of 436edo has a distinct flat tendency, in the sense that if the octave is pure, harmonics from 3 to 37 are all flat.

The equal temperament tempers out 32805/32768 and [1 -68 46 in the 5-limit; 390625/388962, 420175/419904, and 2100875/2097152 in the 7-limit; 1375/1372, 6250/6237, 41503/41472, and 322102/321489 in the 11-limit; 625/624, 1716/1715, 2080/2079, 10648/10647, and 15379/15360 in the 13-limit; 715/714, 1089/1088, 1225/1224, 1275/1274, 2025/2023, and 11271/11264 in the 17-limit; 1331/1330, 1445/1444, 1521/1520, 1540/1539, 1729/1728, 4394/4389, and 4875/4864 in the 19-limit; 875/874, 897/896, 1105/1104, 1863/1862, 2024/2023, 2185/2184, 2300/2299, and 2530/2527 in the 23-limit. It supports and gives a good tuning to quadrant. It also supports tsaharuk, but 171edo is better suited for that purpose.

436edo is accurate for some intervals including 3/2, 7/4, 11/10, 13/10, 18/17, and 19/18, so it is especially suitable for the 2.3.7.11/5.13/5.17.19 subgroup.

Subsets and supersets

Since 436 factors into 22 × 109, 436edo has subset edos 2, 4, 109, and 218.

1308edo, which divides its edostep into three, is a zeta gap edo and is consistent in the 21-odd-limit.
