"4/5 stars, but best program I could get to work"

July 28, 2010  |  By arthurruhtra

 |  Version: Virtual Tuner 1.0

Pros

Very simple; automatic (needle calibrates zero to closest note); works equally well with other instruments (even worked better for tuning my ukulele); installed correctly on my xp and my vista machine (others did not)

Cons

Note recognition is quircky (especially if your mic/computer has lots of interference noise--but it's far better than other programs I tried); no option to manually select a string/note for forcing recognition.

Summary

Simple program, but you need to know a few things the author explains on his wiki help: http://code.google.com/p/virtual-tuner/wiki/GuitarTuning
(Details there about how it may pic up a harmonic rather than the base note. )

This worked very well on my Vista laptop with just the built-in mic. Not so good on my XP PC that has lots of static and hum on the built-in motherboard sound card even with a good mic.

I downloaded every freeware program from CNET and this was the best of the ones that installed correctly. I'll still prefer tuning by ear from a webpage with guitar notes to play, but this provides a nice confirmation. Don't think this would work well at all if you can't get the string close by ear.

Now that I got AP Tuner to work on my Vista laptop (doesn't on my XP PC) I have to say that it is a far far superior tuner.
