Importing fretted instrument tunings

You can import custom fretted instrument tunings that you have already created and apply them to instruments. This allows you to reuse tunings without having to create them from scratch.


  1. In Setup mode, in the Players panel, expand the card of the player holding the fretted instrument to which you want to apply an imported tuning.
  2. In the instrument label, click the instrument menu and choose Edit Strings and Tuning to open the Edit Strings and Tuning dialog.
  3. Click Import Tuning at the bottom of the dialog to open the File Explorer/macOS Finder.
  4. Locate and select the .doricotuning library file you want to import.
  5. Click Open.


The selected .doricotuning file is applied to the fretted instrument. The imported tuning becomes available for chord diagrams.
