TinWhistle Hole Calculator V3.22
TWCalc is a Freeware program that runs under
Note: TWCalc also runs under 'WINE' for linux with the exception of the graph.
It allows you to calculate hole positions for 6-hole tinwhistles and flutes.
The latest changes reflect the recent formula changes
that are in my FLUTE-DIATONIC Excel Spreadsheet.
For many years, many in the whistle industry have been using the tone hole matrix formulas developed in the late 1970's,
I discovered that most of the programs out there do not calculate closed hole correction right and recently discover an error in
the chimney correction for sharp edge toneholes using 61.33% efficiency instead of 75%.
What this caused on many whistles that are made by various maker's today to be flat on the low end notes and gradually gets sharper
before it reaches the top tonehole notes.
Add individual tonehole bore diameters
This is the first step in supporting tapered bores!
Fix L/B Ratio Glitch
Change "UNIT" to "UNITS" in stored data.
Changes to Chimney Correction, Length Calculation, minor display changes
Conversion to 32 Bit Windows
Version 2.0 - unpublished
Save multiple - new file form. Minor cleanups.
