No G! The difference between 443 and even 445 or more and back to 440 is nothing to worry about but for sure it is something to study about for ear training. Nothing is really exactly in tune. Bach whatever. There is a very small difference. Notes can sound a little brighter at 443 than 440 but will still sound in key. Think about all the different types of instruments. It's your own style that will get you there and then you can figure out how to jam with others in tune. Practice, Practice and more Practice.
but if i learn the violin mainly with my ear at A 443 then try and play A 440 itll sound flat. it already does sound flat since i put the tuner back on A 440.
The intervals between notes will be exactly the same either way.
im just used to the piano (or keyboard in my case) where its a fixed pitch. but i do have a pitch bender on the keyboard...not quite the same thing though :)
You're getting too detailed G. I tune at 440 because that's what I am used to. FM tunes at 443 cause that is what he is used to. All instruments are at a different pitch a little from each other including the piano. If you hear a difference on your violin playing from 443 to 440 it is your finger positions and or your violin strings that slip out of tune a bit, or you have a very sharp ear and playing perfect??? The violin has no frets and everyones finger size is a little different so learn how to adjust to hear the right notes. Don't fret it, just jam ;-) Make sure to jam to audio if you want to play along with others.
