Ocarina practice tools

Tuning drone

A drone can provide a reliable pitch reference to help you play the ocarina in tune. The different ways of using one are explained in the article Playing the ocarina in tune.


Ocatune is a program that provides a dynamic drone. It listens to your ocarina playing using your computer's microphone, and plays the closest equally tempered note for you as a reference. It must be used with headphones as it won't work properly if it can hear it's own output.


Ocatune is open source software available on github. A windows exe is provided above, and it also works on Linux if you download the source code.
