    I pass the sound via Ableton to EQ it a bit but its a bit jumpy. My Omega is way easier and clean (sound).

    I use a guitar piezo for tuning etc. Via a mixer with dedicated Mic input.

    Some of my watches suffer from this problem also. I think the culprit is mostly the echoing from your case/movement ring/caseback.
    Also it's possible that if you are using a standard piezo disk, it it deformed from the force of your watch crown and the audio signal is distorted.

    My problem is that I cannot get the software to calibrate.

    I am attempting to calibrate by placing the webcam mic on one of my quartz watches. When I attempt to calibrate by checking the "calibrate" box in the upper right menu. the software responds by displaying the red clock and the "cal (wait) 0%" comments. Occasionally (rarely) the clock will turn green for a moment and the dialog will report "cal (acq) 0%" but then immediately goes back to "cal (wait 0%)" and nothing else ever happens. The calibration procedure is never completed.

    Unfortunately, the "documentation" in the earlier post doesn't really explain what is supposed to be happening or what these cryptic comments mean, or how to troubleshoot if the system fails. That lack of disclosure makes it impossible to debug the failed calibration procedure.

    by any chance is there a debug mode in which additional status information is displayed? or additional documentation somewhere that better explains the calibration procedure?

    thanks.

    It is important that the software clearly hear the ticking of the step-by-step motor of the quartz watch. When the indicator clock changes from green to red, it is indicating that the reference sound is not good. It is best to use a piezoelectric contact microphone, as this neutralizes any ambient sound.

    Re: Open source timing software.

    not sure which version I need, 0.5.0 or 0.4.0 ? Assuming the 0.4.0 is still there for a reason (some advantage or preference over 0.5.0?) Any advice for a newbie to this application

    Personally I prefer version 4 In a sense it seems more consistent. However, it may be due to how I use the software. Any of the 2 is excellent.

    Here the difference between the versions. I like the paper strip simulation of version 4 more. The points look less scattered.

I've already calibrated with a quartz watch from the internal mic, but the program just won't pick up anything with external mics.

    TIA
    sorry to take so long to reply (hope you've solved the problem)... i use nothing special except a usb logitech webcam for the mic input (selected via Apple->System Preferences->Sound->Input)

    I realize that I am late to the party but I just saw this thread. First, I want to extend a thanks to the OP for putting so much time and effort into creating this software. I have not yet downloaded it and I have a question. Do I just need a microphone in addition to the software? I have a webcam that is on a movable arm and not built into my desktop. I'm not sure if the arm is strong enough to hold the weight of my larger watches. Any advice on how to place the camera/watch in different positions for testing? Should I consider buying a separate microphone? Does the software enable the mic or must you use the camera software, in my case Logitech. Thank you!

    Re: Open source timing software.

    Many thanks to the developer of the program!
    As you advised, I used the built-in microphone on my laptop.
    Thanks again!
