I made a ukulele tuner web app

I got sick of all the ukulele tuner apps so I decided to make my own. The best ukulele tuner app I’ve found on the iPhone works by repeatedly playing the note you are tuning to rather than trying to analyse the audio and display the frequency of the note it detects. The human ear is still better than software at doing that in my opinion.

It’s pure html and javascript. I used the howlerjs javascript framework for playing the audio as I found the basic javascript audio functions not precise enough for the looping.

The audio samples came from freesound.org courtesy stomachache.
