6edt is the abbreviation for 6 Equal Divisions of the Tritave. Since 6edt contains one intervals of 2edt and two intervals of 3edt, it only introduces 2 new notes. These new notes happen to approximate 6/5 and 5/2 quite well. 6edt is therefore the smallest edt other than 5edt to accurately approximate 5-limit harmony. 6edt allows for construction of chords such as 2:5:6:15:18:26:31:45:54...
