(semiconvergent)

**971 equal divisions of the octave** (abbreviated **971edo** or **971ed2**), also called **971-tone equal temperament** (**971tet**) or **971 equal temperament** (**971et**) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 971 equal parts of about 1.24 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 2^{1/971}, or the 971st root of 2.

971edo's fifth is only 0.00174 cents sharp of just, as it is the denominator of the first semiconvergent to log_{2}(3/2) past 389\665. It is consistent to the 9-odd-limit, but there is a large relative delta in its approximation to harmonic 5. Skipping the harmonic, it is a good 2.3.7.11.13.17 subgroup system.
