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).

  • GTune - Windows
    Free VST Tuner.
  • 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.
