Tuning Question - Equal Temperament?

Post by mcgruff » Thu Nov 03, 2011 4:57 pm

I'm planning to make up some gig files from a variety of freeware sampled instruments: pianos, strings, brass, etc...

I've got a tuner app (lingot) which is set to equal temperament (although I think I can change that if required).

Should I simply tune all these different instrument samples using equal temperament? I had a quick skim through a piano-tuning guide and it sounds much more complicated than I imagined. Presumably different instruments all have similar quirks so I'm not sure what the best practice might be, and if you need to use different methods for different instruments.
