    Is there a free program for Windows where...

    ...you can sing a note into the computer's microphone and the program will tell you exactly what pitch the note is?

    I wasn't sure where to post this, but a mod can feel free to move the thread if this isn't the appropriate forum for it.

    I don't know, but I know you can do it with guitar tuners.

    Sing directly into the microphones.

    a guitar tuner can tell you what note you're singing.
    if you know which octave you're in you can determine pitch eg G3=196Hz A5=880Hz

    If you want the exact frequency ie 881.6654 I'd say googling 'free audio analysis software' or other words to that effect would be a good start.

    I don't know of any. Why do you ask? Perhaps there are other things to consider. One being a keyboard and picking out the tune one note at a time, once you get the first note the others are just up scale or down scale -- I know, I know --- but if you take your time it's not all that hard on a keyboard.

    Course you have to write down what you find and it would be nice to have software to do that. {Edit} Guitar Pro (not free) will do this and let you pick out the melody, on screen, at the same time -- you still have to tell it what note, up scale or down scale. Check it out see if it will do what you want. They used to have a free trial period, probably still do.

    Good luck.

    I've seen online guitar tuners that can do that.
