Default Re: Tuner Notes

Tuning your pipes with the Korg is risky if you do not understand the difference between just tuning (pipes) and even tempered (the Korg, piano etc). Search the archives there are a ton of discussions on this. Suffice it to say, tune only your low A, high A and E to the Korg. Learn to tune the rest to the drones. Actually learn to tune them to a drone first!

And yes, it is C# and F#. Sometimes you will see this in a key signature, but just as often not. Since there is no capacity to play those note as naturals (without some false fingerings) the key signature is really not a functional aid for piping.
