Title: Arto New String Calculator
Url: https://www.cs.helsinki.fi/u/wikla/mus/NewScalc/
Creator: Wikla, Arto
Publisher: Helsingin yliopisto
Description: Designed by a senior lecturer at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Helsinki in Finland, this website is a stand-alone Pascal program for string calculations. The idea came to him while visiting a French lute maker friend and the site has been continually updated since the original program was conceived. The calculator is useful only for calculating the tensions and diameters of strings made of homogenous material, thus wound strings, catlines and other such strings are excluded. The calculator is designed with lute instruments in mind but can be used for any stringed instrument: harpsichord, harp, guitar and pianos. The site provides easy to follow instructions and a glossary of the terms. Java 1.4 or 1.5 must be enabled to use this calculator.
