FreeCelloTuner is simple to use and it can help you re-tune your musical instrument in a short time. The software offers several genuine cello sounds, corresponding to the natural chords of the instrument, that can guide you in obtaining the correct calibration. Moreover, FreeCelloTuner can help you string your cello according to different pitches.
Original cello sounds
FreeCelloTuner can be a simple guide to getting accustomed to the genuine cello chords and reproducing them from memory. Tuning a cello requires stretching the strings or letting them loose, in order to obtain the correct sound when playing the instrument. This is why, you need to know the exact sound of the properly tuned cello.
FreeCelloTuner can help you by playing these sounds one time or repeatedly, if you enable the dedicated option. The software displays the cello chords on different buttons, that you can click on to listen to the tuned instrument. The natural cello chords are C2, G2, D3 and A3.
Different pitch modes
FreeCelloTuner can render the chords according to several different pitch modes, such as baroque pitch, New Philarmonic, France1859, Concert, Boston Symphony Orchestra, New Berliner Philharmonic or Renaissance. Each of these modes correspond to a specific frequency, which means that although they are the same chords, they can sound differently.
Thus, while the natural pitch is set at a frequency of 440 Hz, the other pitches vary from 415 Hz (the Baroque pitch), up to 460 Hz, for the Renaissance mode. Each of these frequencies create different sounds for the chords. These modes come in handy when the cello you need to calibrate is part of an orchestra or a musical group and plays along with other instruments.
Re-calibrate your musical instrument by yourself
With FreeCelloTuner, you can easily tune your musical instrument in a short time and without professional assistance. The software offers the proper tools that enable you to produce the correct sound with your cello. Moreover, if you play the cello in an orchestra, you can tune it at several different frequencies, in order to blend in with the other instruments.
