89edo
← 88edo | 89edo | 90edo → |
89 equal divisions of the octave (abbreviated 89edo or 89ed2), also called 89-tone equal temperament (89tet) or 89 equal temperament (89et) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 89 equal parts of about 13.5 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 2^{1/89}, or the 89th root of 2.
Theory
89edo has a harmonic 3 less than a cent flat and a harmonic 5 less than five cents sharp, with a 7 two cents sharp and an 11 1.5 cents sharp. It thus delivers reasonably good 11-limit harmony and very good no-fives harmony along with the very useful approximations represented by its commas. On a related note, a notable characteristic of this edo is that it is the lowest in a series of four consecutive edos to temper out quartisma.
As an equal temperament, it tempers out 32805/32768 (schisma) in the 5-limit; 126/125, 1728/1715, and 2401/2400 in the 7-limit; and 176/175, 243/242, 441/440 and 540/539 in the 11-limit. It is an especially good tuning for the myna temperament, both in the 7-limit, tempering out 126/125 and 1728/1715, and in the 11-limit, where 176/175 is tempered out also. It is likewise a good tuning for the rank-3 temperament thrush, tempering out 126/125 and 176/175.
The 13-limit is a little tricky as 13 is tuned distinctly flat, tempering out 169/168, 364/363, 729/728, 832/825, and 1287/1280. 13/10 and 15/13 are particularly out of tune in this system, each being about 9 cents off. The alternative 89f val fixes that but tunes 13/8 much sharper, conflating it with 18/11. It tempers out 144/143, 196/195, 351/350, and 352/351 instead, and supports 13-limit myna and thrush. However 58edo is a better tuning for those purposes.
The 17 and 19 are tuned fairly well, making it consistent to the no-13 21-odd-limit. The equal temperament tempers out 256/255 and 561/560 in the 17-limit; and 171/170, 361/360, 513/512, and 1216/1215 in the 19-limit.
89edo is the 11th in the Fibonacci sequence, which means its 55th step approximates logarithmic φ (i.e. (φ - 1)×1200 cents) within a fraction of a cent.
