Double tap the main button to take a reading from the next Low A (great for tuning solo).
Press the arrows to reverse the scale. The reversed scale is helpful when tuning drones as the pitch indicator will move in the same direction as the drone slide.
Ajust the scale range in the settings screen to suit the level of player you are tuning. A higher range suits a more novice, unsteady piper. A lower range suits a more advanced player, and will allow the drones and chanter to be tuned to a greater level of accuracy.
Select "Number relative to 440" in settings if you would prefer to see the calibration number displayed relative to a concert pitch A instead of the actual frequency.
Some solo players prefer to tune their High A and B slightly flat.
