Sorry about this, and especially posting it in this forum, but I would liek some help on this issue quick.
I tune by guitar with a $20 CND Korg tuner and recently I downloaded Audacity to lsiten to myself play, the connection is a cheap microphone which is played pretty much inside the soundhole as anything else doesn't register anything.
Now the tuner says my guiatr is relatively in tune, at least there is a green light for the given note. The Korg is not very consistant, it bounces quick a large degree every time a note is played, sometimes showing quite sharp othertimes quite flat, but generally it stays within the "greenlight" range. However, when I look at the pitch for any given note in Audacity, it says it's a pitch of a different note. For instance I play my low E string and it says it's a D-Eb note. I play my G and it says it's a D string. And that's the close ones, some are two or three semi-tones either sharp or flat.
It's not that I'm not selecting jsut the right notes, since I've tried recording just a signle note being played and it also does this. And I don't trust my ear for poop, and although it would be humiliating, I wouldn't put it beyond possibility that I can't tell that that I'm playing a D when I hit the open E string (which the tuner says is relatively in tune) but it's possible. So any ideas? Is it likely the program or me?
