It suprises me that mac hasn't dug their greedy and controlling fingers into a program that you can use. you know what you probably have to do...

You have to go buy an iMicrophone which, of course, will work perfectly. By 'perfectly' I mean that you will have to use some terrible program called iHelptuneducatibelts that will seem to have a lot of bells and whistles but will actually be entirely useless. This program, naturally, can only be loaded and used with your individual iMicrophone and probably wont work unless you wrap your bike in a pink foamy skintight accessory cover with an apple on it.

You might try to get some cutting goggles, so you can see, and head over to the partially eaten fruit store and ask them.

Sorry man, can't really help you out on this one. I don't mean to be a bastard, I just couldn't resist the opportunity.

Best of luck.

I really couldn't resist. Forums can't usually handle sarcasm....but the gents around here in the SC section of ducati.ms are a bit different.

all I heard in my head...."if you post it......they will laugh"

There is an app for the Iphone called Cleartune I have not used it myself yet. I plan to this weekend but I have heard that it is pretty accurate. I am guessing that you can run that app in your
Macbook or such.
Here is a link.

Hi,

Maybe a guitar tuner? I used the free "Tuna Pitch" to tune my not-easy-to-tune 12-string guitar. It does OK, better than the other tuners I tried. The display is easy to read, too. The screenshot is uglier than the app I'm using, it's probably from the widget. I recommend the full app.


Tuna Pitch


To name a couple other things:
FuzzMeasure Pro is a pretty awesome sound analysis program, I don't know if it does pitch analysis though, and you may be able to use the free Audacity to do this.

Ps. - I just did some reading up on guitars, and you'll definitely be able to use a guitar tuner - the lowest note on a normal guitar is 83 Hz. If you're not getting the tuner to pick up the belt vibration, try a bit harder, the algorithm will be able to pick it up if it's worth its salt and fed a reasonable signal.

I'm surprised your windows computer let you type so many words without crashing. How many restarts did it take to finish your post. :p

She does have a nice Mac. 3 actually. You went to the right place for reliable computers. Did she tell you how old she was?
