Return to PTOOLS Home Page

Since 1989, we have been providing Piano Technicians with Software to analyze Piano Wire String Scales. Starting with MSDOS (1989), porting to Windows 16 bit in 1996, providing a PscaleX 64 bit solution using DosBox in 2009 (which also provided Mac Intel computers access), we have finally re-written Pscale in Javascript and Html to run on all modern operating systems via an Internet Browser. That means: Windows, Macs, Android, iOS, Linux, Unix, and all others! An Internet Connection is Not Required.

Please Note: Pscale 360 will run on smartphones and tablets but it is not recommended because loading and saving files requires Select All, Copy, and Paste to load and save scale files. Laptops and Desktops are recommended because loading and saving files does not require Select All, Copy, and Paste. Also, having a mouse control is highly recommended as hovering provides tool tips and clicking on graph dots will move to that note.

Pscale 360 also includes all previous versions of Pscale.  You can order Pscale360 here.

Pscale 360 also comes with a Metric Diameters version that has nearly all of the features of the Decimal Diameters version.
