Special properties

840 equal divisions of the octave (abbreviated 840edo), or 840-tone equal temperament (840tet), 840 equal temperament (840et) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 840 equal parts of about 1.43 ¢ each. Each step of 840edo represents a frequency ratio of 21/840, or the 840th root of 2.

Theory

840edo is the 15th highly melodic EDO, and it is the first one divisible by 7. It does not tune the 9-odd-limit consistently, though a reasonable 13-limit interpretation exists through the patent val. A comma basis for the 13-limit is 729/728, 1575/1573, 67392/67375, 804375/802816, 250047/250000.
