Sorry to make one more post but, after thinking about it some more, I may've come up with a quick enough way to manually reference different partials while tuning the bass or treble.

If one doesn't actually measure different partials exactly, but only mentally notes numerical readings on Verituner's display dial, it should be possible to do most or all the things this approach requires, without taking too much time. A limitation would be accuracy, since one would have to visually judge distances between the smallest markings on VT's display dial, which are of whole cents.

I'm kind of flying by the seat of my pants, since I don't have a piano here in front of me to experiment with, but I'm certainly interested now to try this out.

Thanks, Bernard, for asking questions and getting me thinking about this again. I've edited my previous comments in accordance with my current thought.

Jeff and/or Ron,

Can I use Verituner to check my temperament? It's like backward way of tuning with ETD. In case I want to check how close is my temperament when I tune aurally.

I just ordered my PPC and hopefully I could get it sometimes next week.

Getting closer to my ETD.

Sure - the only "pre" step you might want to take is to make sure the endpoints are in the same place. If your temperament is A3 - A4, then make sure the machine setting you choose matches those two notes.

It's easy to use as a training aid as well. Tune each step THEN look at the ppc to see if you agree. Then comes the fun part - which is right? :-) Use your checks to prove your case, or find out where you might have gone a little wrong...
