718 equal divisions of the octave (718edo), or 718-tone equal temperament (718tet), 718 equal temperament (718et) when viewed from a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 718 equal parts of about 1.67 ¢ each.

Theory

718edo is distinctly consistent in the 23-odd-limit, and does well enough in the 31-limit. It is closely related to 359edo, but the mapping differs for 5, 13, 17 and 31.

As does 359et, 718et tempers out the 359-comma in the 3-limit, rendering a very accurate perfect fifth. In the 5-limit it tempers out the gammic comma, [-29 -11 20, and the monzisma, [54 -37 2. In the 7-limit it tempers out 4375/4374; in the 11-limit 3025/3024, 9801/9800 and 131072/130977; in the 13-limit 1716/1715, 2080/2079, 4096/4095, 4225/4224, 6656/6655 and 10648/10647; in the 17-limit 1275/1274, 2025/2023; in the 19-limit 2432/2431, 3250/3249, 4200/4199 and 5985/5984; and in the 23-limit 2024/2023, 2025/2024, 2185/2184, 3060/3059. It supports gammic, monzismic and abigail.
