Guitune is a linux program for tuning guitars and other instruments by using
the method of Schmitt-triggering, i.e. counting the number of triggerings
between two trigger levels in a certain amount of time. Why not use FFT like
many other tuning devices? Well because other tuning devices are not as fast
as mine!! With FFT you need many samples to archieve the accuracy needed for
tuning instruments. You often get times of around 1 second between two
measurements and the computer is quite busy in this second calculating the
FFT. Using Schmitt-triggering you get a measurement every 10th of a second or
even less (depending on the sample frequency you use). Most of the time the
computer only waits for the samples.
The Trigger levels are adjustable. For a pure sine-wave the trigger levels
could be zero. But for a wave wth overtones like the one in the figure above
you need a non-zero triggerlevel. It is preadjusted to a level of 60% of the
current maximum which should be able to deal with most instruments.
