How TuneLab 97 Works
The TuneLab 97 program requires that your computer have a microphone input or a built-in microphone. The sound device in your computer is be configured by TuneLab 97 to sample continuously at 22,050 Hz. The sampled data is continually used to update a moving-bar phase display. The program also maintains a real-time frequency spectrum display. This display together with the phase display gives a complete picture of the tuning situation. This program allows the use of custom stretched tuning to compensate for inharmonicity.
Calcul8 by David Porritt
In order to calculate a tuning curve directly from certain inharmonicity readings, David Porritt wrote a program called Calcul8, which is a plug-in extension to TuneLab 97. Calcul8 is now available by downloading this ZIP file from Cy Shuster's website: calculate.zip.
