Tuner/Tuning Fork next to Metronome button

Post by miekwave » Mon Nov 26, 2012 1:28 am

The piano I recorded is out of tune. I would like to mix it in standard tuning by offsetting "fine/corse pitch" using wrap.

I did this by trial/error before I nailed it.

A very helpful tool might be to have a "Tuning Fork" icon next to the metronome.

The "Tuning Fork" would monitor the pitch of the main output (by default) and display the pitch with a needle or indicator indicating if the input signal is flat or sharp. The pitch displays for monophonic signals, not polyphonic signals. The functionality is similar to your generic guitar tuner.

Not to be mistaken for "AutoTune".

There are 2 Tuning Fork Modes with a click
Active and Bypass

In Bypass Mode, the tuning fork is grayed out and not doing anything.
In Active Mode, the tuning fork is highlighted yellow, indicating it is actively monitoring the Main Output (by default). The mini display is replaced with a 4 Character Display. Indicating
{NoteLetter:|A,B,C,D,E,F,G, AND or [#]}|{SharpFlatStatus}|{centsflat/sharp}|MidiDropArrow
For example the tiny yellow box will look like


You would see F# with the needle in the -33 position next to the metronome.

A tiny drop box allows you to select which Track input to monitor.
Check out some of my soundtracks. Also Ableton Live Performance video.

Yeah, and/or to have a built-in strobe tuner device. Would be very handy..
