Setting the tuner at startup

Postby Broomy » Sun Jun 07, 2015 7:09 pm

Well as the title states, I would love to have the ability to set the tuner at startup.
For instance with a command line "-Tuner a=440 31-tet" when starting an instance of Guitarix.

Is this a hard to do option?

This thread kind of sunk away, but I would like to bring it up again.
Currently I'm swapping between a regular fretted 12-tet guitar, a fretless where I use 31-tet and recently I'm using 53-tet when playing around with Indian (just-tuned) scales.

It would be great if I could start different sessions in Non-Session-Manager for each tuning / TET.

Further the 53-TET uses a relative nomenclature (a derivate of Do-Re-Mi), which is ideal for Indian music.
So being able to set the frequency for "Do" would be great.

I don't have the slightest idea how hard this is to do, but just wondering...

Hi Hans

Yea, I've forgotten about it, so good you bring it up again. :)

I've implement the set tuner tet option now in git.
It's -t, use it like this
-t 53
or
-t 24

Will thing about it, but that wouldn't easy, as all TET's use the same algorithm behind the scene, and usually we set the frequency for the Note "A" and calculate the rest from there.

Thanks!

About setting the frequenty. You don't have to change much I think only to widen the bandwidth of the frequenty (somewhere between 225 and 450).
So when I want to use a C as root, the command line would be: guitarix -t 53 -f 440
But when I want to use G as root 440*3/4 = 330 Hz --> guitarix -t 53 -f 330
and so on.

Okay, that's easy.
So I've added now the option -F to set the reference pitch at start-up, range is between 225 - 453 Hz.
guitarix -t 53 -F 330
