Tuner -> E Flat Reference -> does the Tuner go to 415.3 ?

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

Just a quick Tuner question.

 

I know  440  [ A ]  is "standard"  .... and I recall  (?)  the Helix Tuner has  + / -  Refernence Adjustment (?)

 

If my memory is right:-

 

=> can the Helix Tuner be  Reference Adjusted to  415.3  which is  E flat  ?

 

Thanks,

Ben

Why would you need to change the reference to Eb? The tuner is chromatic so just tune everything a half step lower.

No the tuner reference only goes down to 426 HZ but Phil is correct, it's chromatic so what does it matter?

Hate to rain on your parade, but 415.3 Hz is Ab, not Eb....but regardless, as others have already said, the tuner is chromatic. You can tune to any pitch you want as it is.

No biggie really.

 

All my stuff these days is in  E flat ..... so  pre-settting the Tuner to  415.3  and therefore having it  show  " E / A / D etc.... "  in-lieu of  E flat  etc.....  is easier to follow when quickly  looking at it and tuning live between songs / sections  etc ..... rather than having to look for  E flat  etc... on the display.

 

Like I said, just an old-man convenience thing.
