That has also been my experience. I still use gstrings. There was an older app that was even better than gstrings that disappeared from the Play Store a year or so ago. Can't remember its name, but I still miss it.

Never tried to use TuxGuitar tuner and don't know anything about it.

I also have a little hardware chromatic tuner that works pretty well. Quick story about that: I bought it in 2000, and I can't remember ever changing the battery. Then last summer I was about to play a couple of songs with my kids at a talent show, and pulled out the trusty old tuner. I tuned one of the guitars, and then . . . the BATTERY DIED! I was shocked! Had to borrow a tuner for the other instruments before we went on stage.

Try x42's Tuna. It's available from KXStudio if you don't want to build it yourself.

Something is going wrong here. This is not my topic. I did not start this topic.

The same thing happened to this topic, I recently noticed: https://linuxmusicians.com/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=19873. The OP is not showing up, and yours was the first reply. Not sure if the moderator deleted the OP or if this is a glitch.

I used FMIT to tune before. A long time ago. As with most things jack, you have to do some routing to get it going. And back when I used it some tweaking on settings since my laptop was low end and nothing like what we have today.

Code: Select all

Description-en: Free Music Instrument Tuner
 FMIT is a graphical utility for tuning your musical instruments, with
 error and volume history and advanced features like microtonal tuning,
 statistics, and various views like waveform shape, harmonics ratios and
 real-time Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT). All views and advanced features
 are optional so that the interface can also be very simple.


From the $(apt-cache show fmit) in debian stable. A quick browse of /var/lib/dpkg/available shows fmit, gtkguitune, lingot, as options.
