Tuning the Guitar on Linux

Filed under: FOSS,Linux,Music — mifan @ 6:36 pm

Unfortunately, the manual tuner for my guitar ended up with one of my guitars, so I had to look for something to tune the other acoustic one. And hey presto, Linux to the rescue again :). GtkGUITune is an application to tune guitars: it obtains the note played via the mic interface and shows the frequency measurement: And unlike other methods, the measurement is shown in 1/10th of a second. So all you have to do is to tune your guitar to match your required notes/frequencies.
