Chromatic Tuner Software for Professionals
These full-featured tuning packages are the software equivalent of professional stand-alone hardware chromatic tuners. Their primary advantage is their large, information rich displays and are easily programmed using a computer interface rather than fields of buttons like the standalones. Those intended for piano tuning can also analyze a note and calculate a stretch for you or a pitch-raise rubric.
