836 equal divisions of the octave (abbreviated 836edo or 836ed2), also called 836-tone equal temperament (836tet) or 836 equal temperament (836et) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 836 equal parts of about 1.435 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 21/836, or the 836th root of 2.

Theory

836edo is a strong 11-limit system, having the lowest absolute error and beating 612edo.

The equal temperament tempers out the counterschisma and the enneadeca in the 5-limit; 4375/4374, 703125/702464 in the 7-limit; 3025/3024 and 9801/9800 in the 11-limit. It supports enneadecal in the 7-limit as well as hemienneadecal in the 11-limit. It also tunes orga and quasithird. In addition, it is divisible by 44 and in light of that it tunes ruthenium in the 7-limit and also 11-limit.

Extending it to the 13-limit requires choosing which mapping one wants to use, as both are nearly equally far off the mark. Using the patent val, it tempers out 2200/2197, 4096/4095, 31250/31213 in the 13-limit; and 1275/1274, 2500/2499, 2601/2600 in the 17-limit. It provides the optimal patent val for 13-limit quasithird. Using the 836f val, it tempers out 1716/1715, 2080/2079, 15379/15360 in the 13-limit; and 2431/2430, 2500/2499, 4914/4913, 5832/5831, 11271/11264 in the 17-limit. It gives a good tuning for 13-limit orga.

Subsets and supersets

Since 836 factors into 22 × 11 × 19, 836edo has subset edos 2, 4, 11, 19, 22, 38, 44, 76, 209, 418. 1672edo, which doubles it, provides a good correction for harmonic 13.
