Abstract Computational analysis of traditional music recordings often requires culture-specific problem definition and methodologies. Our previous efforts were directed towards developing technology for computational analysis of Turkish makam music which shares many common features with other maqam/makam traditions such as Arabic and Persian traditional music. This study presents an interactive tuning analysis tool developed with sufficient flexibility for parameter settings. We demonstrate that the tool can be effectively used for tuning analysis of Turkish music, Arabic mu- sic and Persian music once the appropriate settings are supplied by the user, using the interface of the tool.
