    Forgive me if this has been pointed out already - or if no-one gives a honk…

    But my 1st-gen DP-32 has got a freekin’ ossum git’r tuner. Maybe the best one I own (I’ve got at least a dozen).

    Was recording test tracks directly into my DP (my mixer is ‘in the shop’) and pulled up the built-in tuner to be sure the ‘coustic was spot-on for a take.

    LOVED it. Big, highly visible, deadly accurate, no ‘flutter’/very steady.

    The best tuner I have ever used is on my Samsung Galaxy 7 (Android). It's simply called "Instrument Tuner" in the Google Play Store and 100% totally free.

    It originated in Germany, translated into English, and went viral on Play Store after that. It is incredibly sensitive with its VU meter needle, and absolutely dead on accurate!

    I use it constantly when setting up a guitar's intonation, etc... Even my mandolin and violin have benefited from the App. :cool:

    NOTE: The only downside, as you can see, is that you have to be fully audible. No guitar cables, input jacks, headphones, etc... You have to play a guitar on the clean channel, and rest the Smartphone app on top of the amp.
