Re: ANN: Guitar Tuner for Palm Tungsten T/T2 - strobe tuner beta test

Discussion in 'rec.music.guitar' started by Ronald H. Nicholson, Jr., Aug 21, 2003.

  1. Beta test version 0.1.9b of the HotPaw Guitar Tuner application for
    Palm Tungsten T/T2/C model handhelds is now available here:

    http://www.hotpaw.com/rhn/hotpaw/beta/

    This release adds a mode which locks to a single string of the guitar,
    in addition to the string auto-detect mode. The frequency readout
    jitter has been reduced, and the strobe tuner window uses a better color.

    One test user replied that he could tune his guitar with this PalmOS
    application as accurately as with his Korg rackmount tuner.

    Feedback and comments are welcome! Thanks.
