Changing the open pitches of fretted instrument strings

You can change the open pitch of each fretted instrument string independently, for example, if your project requires an unconventional tuning that is not available as an instrument type in the instrument picker.


  1. In the Players panel, expand the card of the player holding the fretted instrument whose open pitches you want to change.
  2. Click the arrow that appears in the instrument label when you hover over it and choose Edit Strings and Tuning to open the Edit Strings and Tuning dialog.
  3. Select the string whose open pitch you want to change.
  4. Change the Open pitch value, for example, to G2.
  5. Optional: Repeat steps 3 and 4 to change the open pitch of other strings.
  6. Click OK to save your changes and close the dialog.


The open pitches of the selected strings are changed. This affects the tuning of the instrument and the pitch of all fret positions on those strings.

The new tuning becomes available for chord diagrams.
