Download Tunings

(Downloading tunings is  free, but you will be asked to fill out a form. A download link will be sent to the email address you provide in the form.)

Click on the above link to download the tunings from this site.

April 7, 2020 Update:   I’ve just updated the content in this Conrad Tunings download.
This Conrad Tunings download now contains my latest mapping templates.
These new “200328” templates contain higher A6 and A7  numbers for stretching the high treble
easily beyond the triple octave when desired.   A header sheet for these templates is also included,
as well as a README file with more information and instructions.
Using the Piano Manager software, these new templates can be installed into the 6 Banks
of extended memory in the SAT IV 980.   These mapping templates are used to find
the target notes that will be used for creating the tuning with the Littau-Conrad Spreadsheet.

Included in the download:
– AccuTuner files in both .sat and .lib file formats.
– Tunings in Excel file format (spreadsheet).
– Two Header Sheets in .doc format, containing piano mfg, model, and the cents settings
for every ‘A’ on the tuning; one organized alphabetically, one organized by A4 number.

Header view

The numbers to the right of the tuning are the cents settings for each A on the piano.

To select a tuning for a piano not on the list:
-Tune A4 to A440, and then measure the location of the 4th and 8th partials of A4.
-Use the tuning on the list that is a similar mode and has similar A4 and A7 numbers.

If installing these tunings into some other system, be sure to use the correct partials.
(The tunings contained in the download all use the 4th partials from A0 – A4.)

Spreadsheet view

Piano Manager’s Export/Import feature allows for exporting/importing the tuning files from
Piano Librarian or Piano Manager into Word or Excel and vice versa.

Organizing tunings can be done with Excel.

Two spreadsheet views of the same group of tunings:

This first one is ‘sorted’ by Brand Name.  (Click image to enlarge)

The Page Number is to the left of the Piano Brand & Model.
For instance,  the Baldwin 52″ Upright (new) is on page 20 in the download group.

As you can see the tunings are on the same page numbers as before, but they are
now organized by their A4 numbers instead of alphabetically.

For comparison, here is a piano with an A4 number that is more in the ‘middle’
of this downloaded group.   Here is a Sohmer Grand with A4 number of 10.5.:
