The new tuner has the added feature, custom tunings, this is so people are able to input tunings that are not listed on the left had side. Only the tunings that are widely used are listed, this is so there isn’t a long list of tunings; the added custom tunings is for other available tunings. Hover over the question mark to see available notes.

When inputting a notes, please make sure that it is in capitals, e.g. “E”, also the custom tunings only uses flat notes, so make sure if you want to use a sharp you input its flat note equivalent. Flat notes must be a lower case “b”, e.g. “Eb”.
