I've got a early Holiday present in the form of a new violin. While my 
eventual aim to to put a pickup on it and start playing around with MIDI, i 
have to get it tuned first.  I don't have a pitch pipe or piano handy.

I have a very accurate (musically) system set up, of which my computer is a 
major part.  

I'm looking for wav files or a tuning program that would help me tune this 
violin.   If i had a wav file or a tone generator, I could just put it on 
repeat while i was tuning.  I've been searching the web for an hour now and 
have found nothing, but i may just be looking in the wrong places.

The starting point for a violin is A (440) then D, then G then E. All are a 
perfect fifth apart.  

For the record, i use KDE mostly, but have the gnome libs installed in case 
anyone has a good app suggestion?

Anyone out there able to help?

Much appreciated,
