Hi, my friends!
@Guido Velasquez: Thanks for your suggestion about the amplifier. Tg has now all basic basic features, so I really would like to focus on the amplifier design (and writing an operating instructions manual), I only need to find the time for these tings... I understand what you mean about sounds coming from the balance wheel, in fact, I have been inaccurate in my statement. I meant to say that no sound comes exclusively from the balance wheel, so there is always at least a second part involved.
@avihai: Thanks for shaing tg on instagram!
@cleef16: I understand that this thread is now rather long. I have collected the links and relevant install instructions on the github homepage of tg: https://github.com/vacaboja/tg The program is really straightforward to use (once you are familiar with the workings of lever escapements), but unfortunately I didn't find the time to write a manual. So, for operating instructions, you still have to read this thread.
@1afc: Nice! Was tg calibrated with the quartz watch procedure?
@jhermit: Yes, it is normal. The dash sign only tells you that tg is unsure about the amplitude, this happens usually because the sound quality is not good enough. Nevertheless, the rate indication of a calibrated tg is, in my opinion, very reliable.
As I said, my priority now, regarding tg, is to experiment a little with amplifiers and write a little user manual (also building a Debian package and fiddling with the amplitude algorithm would be nice...). Hope to do these things before Christmas or so. Thanks again for all your contributions to this thread!
