A violin tuner that can also test your skills on scales. Functionality includes a gauge that shows if your note is in tune (based on 440 Hz), projection of the pitch you are playing on a music staff, and supports live playback (in which you can also download your recording)!
As a past violin player, I hated violin because of intonation. No matter what, my ears felt that I played in tune, but either my violin teacher would tell me that a note was too sharp or too flat, or I would record myself and listen in disgust. With all these pitch detection tools and my interest in web development, I felt this was the perfect time to program an application that could help me become a better, more disciplined musician, and maybe help others too.
It acts as a violin tuner application and takes the frequency of a note played on a violin and translates it visually onto a music staff. There also is an option to test your accuracy in a one octave scale of your choice, in which you can optionally have live playback and a downloaded file of your playing.
I used p5.js editor (editor.p5js.org) and the ml5.js and p5.js libraries to make my web application.
I am proud of using a machine learning pitch detection tool and incorporating it into a useful application that I and I hope other musicians can use to improve their own playing. I am also proud of figuring out algorithms to translate frequency to notes on a music staff and in creating the gauge.
I plan to Incorporate testing all scales in 1,2,3 octaves and evolve in other technical excerises, such as arpeggios, whole-tone and chromatic scales, and other patterns. Furthermore, another step in improving the project is allowing the user to pick their own notes to test themselves with. In addition, I plan to make the application more graphically and UI sound, especially for mobile devices. Finally, this concept can be expanded to all instruments which their own selective technical excercises.
