The 3600 equal division divides the octave into 3600 equal parts of exactly 1/3 of a cent each. A cent is therefore three steps; also, the Dröbisch Angle which is 1/360 octave is ten steps. It also has the advantage of expressing the steps of 72edo in whole numbers. Aside from its relationship to cents, it is of interest as a system supporting ennealimmal temperament, tempering out the ennealimma, |1 -27 18>, in the 5-limit and (with the patent val) 2401/2400 and 4375/4374 in the 7-limit. An alternative 7-limit mapping is 3600d, with the 7 slightly sharp rather than slightly flat; this no longer supports ennealimmal, but it does temper out 52734375/52706752; together with the ennealimma that leads to a sort of strange sibling to ennealimmal temperament, more accurate but also more complex. Via the val <3600 5706 8359 10106 12453 13318|, 3600edo also supports hemiennealimmal temperament.
