Tuning of temperaments

Since several people have asked me, I want to point out that I tune my harpsichord completely by ear. I get my first pitch using a tuning fork, and the tempering of intervals is done the "old way." Those who know about temperaments know that a given temperament, like Werckmeister for example, can sound different depending on how an individual does the tempering. So the examples on my soundclip page all have a very slight stamp of individuality one would not get using a machine.
