  • Oscilloscope program?

      I find your ear to be far more discriminating for setting scale than an oscilloscope or a tuner. I set scale by tuning a static oscillator to the same exact pitch, then play a couple of octaves away and adjust the scale, retune, and iterate.

      Once it is fairly in tune across a couple of octaves, fine tune the scaling by moving to 4 or 5 octave intervals. You can tell by the beating (or lack thereof) when things are good.

        I'm really having a lot of trouble with this.  It seems as soon as i adjust one octave to match the static note, the previous one gets off.  When I get a couple near eachother close, the third or fourth are way off, I can't seem to find any kind of balance and I don't know what to do.
