User Rating: 3.2 (27 votes)

A musical instrument strobe tuner with cents and frequency display. With additional features useful for tuning accordions or melodeons. The strobe display may be disabled, if required.


Play your instrument into your microphone and observe the display. The slider at the top left adjusts the microphone input level, the oscilloscope display at the top shows the input waveform. The display below shows the spectrum of the input. It may be zoomed in and out by clicking on the pane. When zoomed in the display shows about ±50 cents around the current note and includes all concurrent notes within that range.

The numeric display shows the note, deviation in cents, correct frequency, actual frequency, reference and frequency deviation. The display may be locked by clicking on the pane. The displayed values may be copied to the clipboard for pasting into another application by typing Ctrl-C. The strobe display below shifts left or right according to whether the input note is flat or sharp. It may be turned off by clicking on the pane. The meter below shows the deviation in cents. The Options button pops up the Options window, the Quit button quits the application. The status bar shows the sample rate and the correction.


The zoom and strobe tick boxes may be used to turn the zoom and strobe display off and on. The Filter tick box controls a 3dB/octave audio filter on the input. This is intended to make it easier to tune low notes by reducing the level of harmonics. The display lock tick box may be used to lock the display. The resize tickbox may be used to resize the display. The multiple tickbox may be used to display multiple sets of values. The slider below and the + and - buttons allow the reference to be adjusted.

Some audio input devices appear to have inaccurate clocks. Out of three laptops I have tested, two were up to 0.7% out. The correction facility allows a correction factor to be entered. The value will not be remembered until the save button is clicked. A known standard may be used to set this value. For example, my netbook has a correction value of 0.99322. The done button dismisses the window.
