525 equal divisions of the octave (abbreviated 525edo or 525ed2), also called 525-tone equal temperament (525tet) or 525 equal temperament (525et) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 525 equal parts of about 2.29 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 21/525, or the 525th root of 2.

Theory

525edo is distinctly consistent through the 25-odd-limit. The equal temperament tempers out the schisma, 32805/32768, and [8 77 -56 in the 5-limit; 250047/250000, 703125/702464 and [21 3 1 -10 in the 7-limit; 3025/3024, 24057/24010, 102487/102400 and 180224/180075 in the 11-limit; 729/728, 1716/1715, 2200/2197, 4096/4095 and 14641/14625 in the 13-limit; 1089/1088, 1275/1274, and 2025/2023 in the 17-limit; 2376/2375 in the 19-limit.

It allows essentially tempered chords of squbemic chords and petrmic chords in the 13-odd-limit.

Fractional-octave temperaments

It supports the 35th-octave temperament tritonopodismic.

525edo supports 21st-octave temperament called akjayland, and the 23-limit extension of akjayland called vasca, described as 357 & 525. It is more suitable to view this temperament as vasca in 525edo as opposed to simply akjayland, since 525edo is consistent in the 23-odd-limit, while other edos which support akjayland are not. As a corollary of supporting vasca, 525edo also supports the relationship that sets 11\21 to 23/16.
