# 65edo

# 65 tone equal temperament

**65edo** divides the octave into 65 equal parts of 18.4615 cents each. It can be characterized as the temperament which tempers out the schisma, 32805/32768, the sensipent comma, 78732/78125, and the wuerschmidt comma. In the 7-limit, there are two different maps; the first is <65 103 151 182|, tempering out 126/125, 245/243 and 686/675, so that 65edo supports sensi temperament, and the second is <65 103 151 183|, tempering out 225/224, 3125/3097, 4000/3969 and 5120/5103, so that 65edo supports garibaldi temperament. In both cases, the tuning privileges the 5-limit over the 7-limit, as the 5-limit of 65 is quite accurate. The same can be said for the two different versions of 7-limit wuerschmidt temperament (wurschmidt and worschmidt) these two mappings provide.

65edo approximates the intervals 3/2, 5/4, 11/8 and 19/16 well, so that it does a good job representing the 2.3.5.11.19 just intonation subgroup. To this one may want to add 13/8 and 17/16, giving the 19-limit no-sevens subgroup 2.3.5.11.13.17.19. Also of interest is the 19-limit 2*65 subgroup 2.3.5.49.11.91.119.19, on which 65 has the same tuning and commas as 130edo.

65edo contains 13edo as a subset. The offset between a just perfect fifth at 702 cents and the 13edo superfifth at 738.5 cents, is approximately 2 degrees of 65edo. Therefore, an instrument fretted to 13edo, with open strings tuned to 3-limit intervals such as 4/3, 3/2, 9/8, 16/9 etc, will approximate a subset of 65edo. For an example of this, see Rubble: a Xenuke Unfolded.
