IN REFERENCE TO "Intonia: Intonation Improving Software" I'm assuming you miked the violin? i see you have a webcam on the laptop, maybe that mike works?does it have to be a separate mechanism?

I had my regular mike recording me playing. But I was using the computer's internal microphone for the software. THe playback you heard was bad because the mic was picking up the sound as it was coming out of lap top computer speakers which are notoriously bad. 

The answer to better audio output is to get good external speakers. Built-in computer speakers are notoriously bad, especially on lap tops. I have a nice pair of self powered speakers (KRK) hooked up to my desktop computer.

I downloaded Intonia, just to try it out.  All I have is a web cam.  It worked perfectly.  Just like Beth shows on her video.  Even though the sound of the  video to me is horrible, when I listen to it as a video.  Doesn't sound all that good on Intonia either, but the data on the screen is spot on.  Shows me sharp a lot on the 'E' string, not too bad on the 'A' string.  Great resource in that regard.  Shows open strings as white as can be.  Hope that helps...

The reason i ask is I just bought an attachment for my tuner that hooks onto the bridge.  if i could get that to work with the computer, that's what i would use. but otherwise i'd have to check to see if the webcam microphone worked.  This looks like the piece of tuning information i was looking for.  The Eb scale for me is hard to get in tune.
