Thought I would bring this to people's attention, as I haven't really heard it mentioned anywhere here, and I think it's great!

It's a free program, downloadable from www.aptuner.com

Rather than the other "ukulele tuner" websites out there which just play you the notes, this actually works through your computer mic like an electronic tuner, with a little needle and a digital readout showing you how out of tune you are :) It's far more accurate than my clip-on tuner.

Of course it means you have to be near your computer to use it.

It seems like quite a nerdy program, with all sorts of settings for different temperaments and stretch tables (whatever they are!) and harmonics graphs, but the basic program is still really easy to use.

Just thought someone might be interested :)

I'm using the same software as well. I've set a new note preset with G4, C4, E4 and A4. It's really very practical to keep the ukulele in shape.

haha! I did that too, as I was fiddling about with it just now.
