Acoustic Guitar Tuner

Tuning your guitar is the most basic skill a guitar student needs to learn. If your guitar is out of tune, nothing that you play is going to sound right--even if your technique and your chord shapes are correct. Tuning without a tuner is a skill that guitarists develop over time, but it can be tricky. To do it right, your ear needs to be pretty well developed.

There are many kinds of tuners, from pitch pipes and tuning forks to electronic tuners. Electronic tuners let you tune all the strings on your guitar independently, but they are bound to the life of their batteries. Other tuners require AC adapters and cables, but they can be a bit of a mess. We at DPR Technology have developed a tuner that avoids all of those hassles.

Our Guitar Tuner is an acoustic guitar tuner that runs directly from your PC through its sound card. Guitar Tuner is a capable program that outputs perfect tones through your PC's speakers. It will give you all of the standard tuning pitches, but it can also be adjusted in half-step increments for non-standard tunings.

Our guitar instruction programs here at DPR were developed over a period of four years and are designed to be the perfect supplement to private instruction. However, they are equally beneficial when used on their own to accelerate the learning process. Learning guitar is definitely a process, and the frustration of slow progress defeats many beginning guitarists. Our products help to counteract that.
