Lingot is a musical instrument tuner
Lingot è un accordatore per strumenti musicali




en18 Lingot is accurate, easy to use, and highly configurable. Originally conceived to tune electric guitars, it can now be used to tune other instruments.

It looks like an analogue tuner, with a gauge indicating the relative shift to a certain note, found automatically as the closest note to the estimated frequency.

it Lingot è un accordatore per strumenti musicali. Nato originariamente per chitarra ben si adatta a tutti gli strumenti che possano essere collegati al PC o tramite l'utilizzo di un microfono.

L'aspetto ricorda gli accordatori analogici.
Il programma individua automaticamente la nota fondamentale che viene indicata sul lato destro insieme alla frequenza stimata, sia tramite visualizzazione sullo spettrogramma.

Il programma richiede all'avvio la disponibilità del dispositivo di ingresso audio e bene quindi chiudere eventuali applicazioni audio che potrebbero occuparla (es. registrazioni in corso, potranno essere avviate successivamente).

Per i numerosi aggiornamenti rispetto alla 0.8.1 precedentemente pacchettizzata vi rimando al changelog.
