The tuner below works by capturing audio from a microphone connected to your computer. The program detects the pitch of the captured audio and tells you what note is being played an how out of tune it may be.
How to use this tuner: This tuner works essentially how a handheld electronic tuner would. You play a string, and it reports back to you if the tone is sharp or flat. All you need is your computer and a microphone. Push Start when you are ready to begin capturing audio.
This tuner is still under development. Comment below if you have any problems, questions, or suggestions. I am still working on it to make it ultra-user friendly and to make it the best free online instrument tuner out there. Help me, help you.
NOTE: When loading this page for the first time, your pc will ask you something along the lines of "The application's digital signature cannot be verified. Do you want to run the application?". It says this because the program needs to access your computer resources to capture the audio from your microphone, so it is just a security precaution, just know that this is normal.
IF IT DOESN'T WORK: This tuner works by using the Operating System's Default Recording Line. Make sure your microphone is plugged. Check to see if the recording volume is reasonable and that your Operating System detects your microphone. Test your microphone by trying to record something by using your OS's default sound recorder. If you record a sound and play it back and it doesn't work, I highly doubt this tuner would work, so you would need to fix that. If recording a sound file does work but this tuner does not, then comment below and tell me what Operating System and Sound Card/Motherboard you have.

I need to get a microphone for my PC so I can use this.
I love this tuner. Very accurate just make sure there are not a lot of ambient noises and that you place the microphone close to the instrument.
Once I figured it out and tweaked my mic in works well now
i cant even get to work.
This is an excellent tuner program. Great job Scott!!
A new beginner from Norway. I have been playing a Martin D16GT for some months, I am new beginner. Today I went to the local guitar shop and borrowed an Ibanez 12 string. So far no problem! But after starting to tune this monster, I get nowhere until I found this site and perfect tuner. THANKS A LOT! I have read and viewed a lot of other places about tuning a 12 string guitar, everybody writing a lot but nobody tells or showing exactly how to tune the 12 string guitar digitally, in a way that it is possible to understand it without being a rocket scientist! REALLY HOPE YOU WILL SUCCEED WITH FURTHER IMPROVEMENT ! Best regards King Kong, Norway
Nice and useful weblink you have published in this place. I have frequented on your given links and really there have plenty of details about an online instrument tuner.
It is sooooo awesome!!! I play the viola!
It says 'inactive plug-in' probably because i didnt plug in a microphone. I don't know hoe to use my built in one on my computer. Does anyone know how to?
