Lingot

Lingot

LINGOT Is Not a Guitar-Only Tuner (Lingot) is an open source musical instrument tuner. It is accurate, easy to use, and highly configurable. Originally conceived to tune electric guitars, it can now be used to tune any instrument.

Lingot looks like an analogic tuner, with a gauge indicating the relative shift to a certain note indicating that note and its frequency. The default values are optimized for electric guitar tuning, for other musical instruments these values must be slightly changed (a good practice would be to have a configuration file for each instrument).
