Interface is nice but software didn't work, it could not recognize a perfectly stable A(440Hz) hooked up directly from a synthesizer! (OSX leopard on white 07 macbook, FFT algorithm might have some bug I guess)

Did some searching and found "Tune It!" at http://tuneit.free.fr/Site/Home.html, which did the job nicely.

While it's certainly set up and designed nicely, this application can cause rather severe problems. Running in OS X 10.4.9 (if the application doesn't crash first) the needle jumps around too much to determine a single note, in OS 10.3.9 it's actually 1.5 to 2 notes off! I tuned an instrument using this app, only to discover it was completely wrong when I double checked it against another program (well, and my ears!).

Until this program is updated (currently version 1.1), don't try it... it'll only cause grievous issues.

Interface and everything looks great, but the needle jumps around way to much to get any sort of fine tuning.

I am using the line in on my computer - straight from my guitar....

It sounded like a good thing but it COMPLETELY killed my audio permanently. Restarts, pram resets, and anything else I try does not fix it. I am horribly mad, this is not good.

Simple VU-style interface that works perfectly with built-in microphone and for the price of a new day. Awesome!

This is just what I've been waiting for. So far there has only been guitar tuners where you could hear a note to tune your guitar, but a chromatic tuner working with the built in microphone has been missing, and its free!! Congratulations.
