The 80 equal divisions of the octave (80edo), or the 80(-tone) equal temperament (80tet, 80et) when viewed from a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system derived by dividing the octave into 80 equally-sized steps. Each step is exactly 15 cents.

## Theory

80et is the first equal temperament that represents the 19-odd-limit tonality diamond consistently, though it barely manages to do so. Despite this, a large number of intervals in higher odd limits in the 29-prime-limit are consistent, and its patent val generally does well at approximating (29-prime-limited) harmonic series segments, such as modes 16 through 30 but especially modes 8 through 15, with inconsistencies usually caused by not cancelling the over-sharpness of compound harmonics 21, 27, 35, 45 and 49 (and their octave-equivalents), which may be seen as an interesting limitation. It achieves this much consistency because all primes in the 29-limit except 13 are sharp of just. This means it can be used as a general-purpose approximate 29-prime-limit system with a relatively manageable number of tones, with some care taken around inconsistency.

80et tempers out 2048/2025, 3136/3125, 1728/1715, 4375/4374 and 4000/3969 in the 7-limit, 176/175, 540/539 and 4000/3993 in the 11-limit, 169/168, 325/324, 351/350, 352/351, 364/363 and 1001/1000 in the 13-limit, 136/135, 221/220, 256/255, 289/288, 561/560, 595/594, 715/714, 936/935 and 1275/1274 in the 17-limit, 190/189, 286/285, 361/360, 400/399, 456/455, 476/475, 969/968, 1331/1330, 1445/1444, 1521/1520, 1540/1539 and 1729/1728 in the 19-limit, 208/207, 253/252, 323/322 and 460/459 in the 23-limit and 320/319 in the 29-limit, equating a sharp 29/16 with a near-perfect 20/11, although this equivalence begins to make more sense when you consider the error cancellations with other sharp harmonics and as a way to give more reasonable interpretations to otherwise questionably mapped intervals.

80et provides the optimal patent val for 5-limit diaschismic, for 13-limit srutal, and for 7-, 11- and 13-limit bidia. It is a good tuning for various temperaments in canou family, especially in higher limits.

• 12&80 ⟨⟨4 -8 -20 -36 32 4 0 …]]
• 22&80 ⟨⟨6 -10 12 -14 -32 6 -40 …]]
