A year or two back there was a discussion of a new tuning software app that one downloads to a laptop. I can't remember the name of the vendor and the search option doesn't seem to help.

I really have no desire to tune our piano but we can't seem to find a tuner who will drive the distance to our fairly remote home.

Can anyone help with the name of the vendor?

Tunelab Pro is probably what you are seeking...

Was it "TuneLabPro"? That's what I use.

Good luck!

Knowing where to put the pitches is easy. Having them stay is the trick. You will need peofessional instruction to reduce the learning time you will need to grasp this concept.

TuneLab is pretty old so you might be thinking of Entropy Piano Tuner. EPT is a new piano tuner available for free EPT Home page

It appears to be simliar to Dirks Tuner.

Here's a YT vid of it: EPT vid

Thanks for your replies. Dirk's application is the one I was thinking of but I'll certainly look into the others mentioned.

I've been playing around with Entropy Tuner on my MacBook air. I'm not a tuner, but I've been doing a fair bit of reading, and thought I'd try it out before my pitch raise today. I didn't use an external microphone, just the one built into the computer. It measured A4 at 429 Hz which is what my tuner's Tunelab was showing. He said he tuned the piano to A441 and that is what it showed afterwards. Pretty slick app considering it's free, but I do see the superiority of TuneLab from my neophyte perspective.

Don't bash me, I know that I nothing on this subject really, but it was fun to play with!

You remind me a little of myself, Marcus... smile

I've been tinkering with pianos (learning to play, learning to tune and service them) for about 8 years now. I've learned enough to know that I've only scratched the surface in regards to understanding the sophistication of piano technology. smile

Hows the new-to-you piano doing?

There are some raving comments about Entropy Tuner on Tuners forum.

But from what I have listened to the recordings provided there, at least the octaves are sounding horrible to my standards.

I prefer beatless octaves that are not too wide and not too narrow.

The thing about the ETD tuning apps/programs, is that they have to be set up correctly, and are not usually plug-and-play. Plus, the ear supersedes the ETD.

One think I've learned about piano tuning is that there is no one-size fits all. The results vary widely and should be geared toward the pianists taste.

Just my amateurish opinion. smile
