    "I cannot install"

    February 21, 2011   |   By J_C_L_S

    Version: Virtual Tuner 1.0

    Pros

    None, I will hope to see if it is a false positive from Emisoft Anti-Malware

    Cons

    Beware Emisoft Anti-Malware report: Backdoor.Win32.LolBot!IK

    "Works For Me"

    August 29, 2010   |   By iflyem2

    Version: Virtual Tuner 1.0

    Pros

    Easy to use. Seems to be very accurate. Being a beginner, it is very useful.

    Cons

    None that I have experienced.

    Summary

    I use it every time before I begin to practice. Quick loading from my Desktop.

    "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.
