482 equal divisions of the octave (abbreviated 482edo), or 482-tone equal temperament (482tet), 482 equal temperament (482et) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 482 equal parts of about 2.49 ¢ each. Each step of 482edo represents a frequency ratio of 21/482, or the 482nd root of 2.

Theory

482edo has good approximations of harmonics 3, 5, 7, 17, 31, and 37. 11 and 13 have rather large errors, but they are reasonable to work with.

In the 7-limit, 482edo provides excellent tuning for the tertiaseptal temperament.
