## Background information on IH and TuneLab - 11/16/12 01:25 PM

Hello Piano Tuners-

I have been using TuneLab for the ipad for a year now, and would like to start taking full advantage of this program. The tuner who taught me tuned all by ear, so he is no help in using TuneLab. The TuneLab manual freely uses some terms that I am not familiar with. Are there any tuners on this forum interested in elaborating on some terms from the manual? Particularly, I could use a clearer definition and explanation of the following terms:

Stretch

Inharmonicity Constant

Tuning Curve

Deviation Curve

Or, could anyone recommend a book which clearly explains more of the theory behind tuning pianos with a digital device?

Thanks,

Michael
