# 6079edo

← 6078edo | 6079edo | 6080edo → |

**6079 equal divisions of the octave** (abbreviated **6079edo** or **6079ed2**), also called **6079-tone equal temperament** (**6079tet**) or **6079 equal temperament** (**6079et**) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 6079 equal parts of about 0.197 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 2^{1/6079}, or the 6079th root of 2.

6079edo is a very strong 11- and 13-limit system, with a lower 11- and 13-limit relative error than any smaller division. It is also a zeta peak edo and distinctly consistent through the 29-odd-limit.

We may note it is a pirate, euzenius and starscape system. A basis for the 11-limit commas is {3294225/3294172, 14348907/14348180, 35156250/35153041, 100663296/100656875}, and for the 13-limit commas, {123201/123200, 1574640/1574573, 1664000/1663893, 1990656/1990625, 3294225/3294172}.

The approximation to harmonics 17 and 23 is weaker, though still quite impressive. It tempers out 14400/14399, 28561/28560, 31213/31212, 37180/37179, 194481/194480, 336141/336140 in the 17-limit; 10830/10829, 43681/43680, 89376/89375, 104976/104975, 165376/165375, 228096/228095 in the 19-limit; 12168/12167, 16929/16928, 19551/19550, 21736/21735, 25025/25024, 43264/43263 among others in the 23-limit. Its 2.3.5.7.11.13.19-subgroup is particularly strong, holding the record of relative error until 8269.
