This is a guitar tuner that tunes an electric guitar to Standard E tuning. It can be very easily modified for an acoustic guitar by adding a microphone and adjusting the gain with the potentiometer. Other tunings can also be programmed in if you know the frequency of the note.
The program uses the ADC library and a version of the Goertzel algorithm <1> which allows the mbed to check the magnitude of a specified frequency instead of outputting an entire Fourier transform. Currently it takes in a buffer and deconstructs the buffer; however, there is also more code <2> which does the calculations in real time which could be faster and allow this program to work on simpler hardware.
