Hello All,

I have a client that has requested an A432 tuning. I use Tunelab. I tried to explain to him the possible issues of the piano being at 432, but that is what he wants. My question is, to get the piano to 432, as it is a modern piano and it is at 440, do I just need to lock the offset of A4 to 432 in Tunelab? Will it then be +/- 31 cents lower across the piano?

I understand I might have to do a pitch lowering to get it stable, but I just wanted to get a clarification on the Tunelab procedure.

Thanks,

Yes, just set the offest at A432, TuneLab will do the rest!

I don't think I could bring myself to tune a modern piano to A432, for which it was not scaled, and to which I object, on the grounds that the reasonsing behind it is intellectual nonsense to which I won't pander! I am not for hire to do just anything.....

Beethoven's "A" tuning fork is in the British Library in London. Its frequency is 455.4Hz.
