This is a small collection of tips about instrument tuning tasks for which it could sometimes be useful to use software other than Audacity (even though you might use Audacity for most of your audio creation and editing).


You can easily tune an instrument with a computer, a sound input such as microphone or line-in and the following software:

  • GTune - Windows
    Free VST Tuner.
  • Audio Tuner v0.7 - Windows
    Free (only supports microphone input). Can tune acoustic guitar, bass guitar, ukulele, violin, piano, banjo, mandolin, autoharp, 'cello.
  • GuiTuner - Linux
    Free, guitar tuner for Linux.
  • KGuitune - Linux
    Free tuner for guitar and other instruments.

There are many online guides to guitar tuning, for example this one.
