what is it you are tuning, and what do you mean by tuning “chromatically”? I have heard of just tuning patches (check out Peter Elsea’s article on Max & Tuning) and there could just as easily be a quarter comma meantone tuning patch, or any other outdated/specific tuning system patch. But ‘chromatic’ isn’t a tuning system, it’s a description of an intervallic pattern. The size of those intervals is what tuning refers to, not what intervals are being played.

Please be more specific in your question.

A “chromatic tuner” is just a tuner that tunes to any of the twelve pitch classes of the equal tempered chromatic scale. They call it “chromatic” as opposed to a tuner that only tunes to pitch classes corresponding to the six stings of a “normally” tuned guitar. Yes, it’s a very guitar-centric terminology, but one that’s very common.

true. . .

basically, I meant not a guitar tuner.

(and more specifically one that will work for low brass)

the guitar tuner has just the interface I was thinking of, I post it back up when I get around to tweaking it.

thanks!

Greetings new friends.
:-)

Trying to find a guitar tuner patch. Not a VST plugin, preferably standalone to work on MacOSX 10.39, or within Max 4.6.3

How do you decode the above text encoded patch?
Pardon my newbie-ness.

Thanks

You won’t be able to open that patch because it is in Max5 format. However if you wanted to build your own tuner I recommend looking for the [fiddle~] and [pitch~] objects. They are not included in the standard max distribution but if you search maxobjects.com for them you will be able to find them.
