That has also been my experience. I still use gstrings. There was an older app that was even better than gstrings that disappeared from the Play Store a year or so ago. Can't remember its name, but I still miss it.

Never tried to use TuxGuitar tuner and don't know anything about it.

I also have a little hardware chromatic tuner that works pretty well. Quick story about that: I bought it in 2000, and I can't remember ever changing the battery. Then last summer I was about to play a couple of songs with my kids at a talent show, and pulled out the trusty old tuner. I tuned one of the guitars, and then . . . the BATTERY DIED! I was shocked! Had to borrow a tuner for the other instruments before we went on stage.

Try x42's Tuna. It's available from KXStudio if you don't want to build it yourself.

I didn't know it, but after seeing it in this thread it became mine too. Really nice!

The same thing happened to this topic, I recently noticed: viewtopic.php?f=48&t=19873. The OP is not showing up, and yours was the first reply. Not sure if the moderator deleted the OP or if this is a glitch.

I used FMIT to tune before. A long time ago. As with most things jack, you have to do some routing to get it going. And back when I used it some tweaking on settings since my laptop was low end and nothing like what we have today.

Code: Select all

Description-en: Free Music Instrument Tuner
 FMIT is a graphical utility for tuning your musical instruments, with
 error and volume history and advanced features like microtonal tuning,
 statistics, and various views like waveform shape, harmonics ratios and
 real-time Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT). All views and advanced features
 are optional so that the interface can also be very simple.
From the $(apt-cache show fmit) in debian stable. A quick browse of /var/lib/dpkg/available shows fmit, gtkguitune, lingot, as options.
