The Tuner is an (old) direct implementation of the tuner sub-circuit proposed by LMNC in his amazing Performance VCO.
The software I use is the one written by Jos Bouten and can be found at https://github.com/josbouten/Tune-O-Matic.
He also describes his own implementation of LMNC circuit at https://lookmumnocomputer.discourse.group/t/tune-o-matic-tuner/36.
MyModularJourney also made his own version and can be found at https://github.com/MyModularJourney/Tuna.
The circuit and the software are pretty basic and can struggle sometimes finding the actual note. But globally, it's a very useful tool, which should be installed in any system.
In my version, I use an Arduino Nano. It is responsible for both calculating the tuning and displaying the result.
I chose to not use an opamp, in order to keep the component count low. The Arduino input is nevertheless protected by a Zener diode D5, behind an AC coupling capacitor C2 and a protection resistor R6.
The 7 segment display can be either Common Cathode (CC) or Common Anode (CA) and the jumper S1 selects which type of display is installed.
The 4 jack sockets are passively connected. This way, you can insert your signal on any connector, and get 3 (passive) outputs. So, even if you don't use the tuner feature, the module can still be used as a simple 1 to 3 passive multiple.
The PCB comes with pre-assembled SMD components. You only need to solder the few remaining through-hole components such as the power connector, the display, the LEDs, the Arduino connectors and the jack sockets.

Thanks! We'll let you know when the seller adds shipping rates for your country.
I use "La Poste", the French postal service.
Tracking informations on Tracked Shipments are scarce and pretty useless most of the time. For this reason, I recommend the Regular Mail without tracking. Don't waste your money!
