I thought you always used 440 on a chromatic tuner but I could be tuning incorrectly

440 is standard tuning.


440hz is the reference tone, an "A", its just how you define your "A"

Halfstep down has noting to do with this, i'm sry.

At least i believe so

If A4 is 440hz then the half step down would be Ab4 at 415.3047hz. If that is what you wanted to know. But you can keep it at 440hz and just tune them half step flat.

You can tune down using the same reference pitch.

Of course, if you consider an Ab referenced from 440 to be your new A, then you could consider yourself to be tuned to A 415'3.

So,, If I wanted to tune to A420 and start with my A String as a reference tuned to Ab 415.3, how many cents do I have to go up to get to A420?

Verde's A is 427 and my tuner will do that so that is not an issue.

Perhaps all of the 420 talk was a misnomer as perhaps the issue was actually about 427 and not 420

The frequencies in Hertz of adjacent chromatic pitches in equal temperament are related by the multiplicative factor of the twelfth root of two.
The difference in cents between two pitches is 1200 times the natural log of the ratio of the two frequencies divided by the natural log of two.

Use the "x^y" key on your calculator for roots and enter negative values of y; use the "ln" key for natural logs.

Right, this thread is in fact 8 years old, and doesn't belong here anyway.

I'm closing it, and if Sliide90027 is still interested then you should go and ask in either Electric Guitar or Guitar Gear & Accessories.
