# 439edo

← 438edo | 439edo | 440edo → |

**439 equal divisions of the octave** (abbreviated **439edo**), or **439-tone equal temperament** (**439tet**), **439 equal temperament** (**439et**) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 439 equal parts of about 2.73 ¢ each. Each step of 439edo represents a frequency ratio of 2^{1/439}, or the 439th root of 2.

## Theory

439edo is inconsistent in the 5-odd-limit. In the 7-limit, the patent val ⟨439 696 1019 1232], and the 439cd val ⟨439 696 **1020** **1233**] are about as viable.

The patent val tempers out 10976/10935, 15625/15552 and 703125/702464 in the 7-limit; 3025/3024, 4375/4356, 14700/14641, 59290/59049, 131072/130977, and 184877/184320 in the 11-limit.

The 439cd val tempers out 3136/3125, 2097152/2083725, and 4096000/4084101 in the 7-limit; 3136/3125, 15488/15435, 16384/16335, 19712/19683, 24057/24010, 43923/43750, 43923/43904, and 46656/46585 in the 11-limit.
