When making ocarinas your first instruments can land on any key. Wrote this tool to help you tune them, Fingering charts for all common ocarina styles in ANY key!



Notes on generic fingering charts

As the pitch of an ocarina is controlled by the total area of open holes, numerous fingerings are possible for the same note, with variations giving slightly sharper or flatter notes. The fingering charts generated by this generator are generic, they should result in approximately the right note but may not be optimal. Some experimentation is needed to find the best combination.

The charts generated by this software are not intended to reflect those of any maker in particular. Ocarina makers create there fingering charts by experimenting to find the fingerings giving the best intonation. If you want a fingering chart for a specific ocarina use the one that came with it or look on the manufacturers website.
