Select input source - To be able to tune your instrument you need to allow access to your computer's microphone. Press the "Allow" button in the pop-up window to use the built-in microphone. No audio data is stored or sent to server. Your connection is secure. If the computer does not have a built-in microphone you can use an external microphone, click the settings button on the tuner and change the input source to your external microphone. You can also change the input source to line-in, which enables you to plug in an electric guitar to the sound card. Problems? Don't hesitate to contact us.

The chromatic scale
C C#/Db D D#/Eb E F F#/Gb G G#/Ab A A#/Bb B
The guitar tuner never displays flat signs. But do not worry, the reason is very simple. As you can see in the chromatic scale above all twelve semitones can be found. For example, both C# and Db have exactly the same pitch but they have different names depending on the reference scale. Note that all notes in the chromatic scale with a sharp sign (#) also have a corresponding note with a flat sign (b).
