Description

Guitar and Violin Tuner is an extremely accurate instrument tuner for many instruments, like guitar, violin, bass, ukulele, viola, cello and banjo, including many alternate tunings and variants.

Professionals appreciate its precision, beginners quickly learn to tune their instrument properly. The application is easy to use thanks to a combination of a chromatic and a strobe tuner on one screen, and provides the most accurate tuning you can achieve.

The chromatic tuner precisely detects of the frequency of the tone played on your instrument, and shows it on the chromatic scale. The target pitches are highlighted on the scale, and you can see how much is the tone out of tune. When you get close enough, you can use the strobe tuner for fine tuning.

The strobe tuner helps you to achieve extreme accuracy. The pattern is moving to the right when the tone is too high, indicating that you need to tune down. When it is moving to the left, just tune up. The slower the pattern moves, the better is your instrument tuned.

If you are in doubt how to use the tuner, please read the built-in help, and see the examples of the tuning process there.

The strobe tuner uses an independent algorithm from the chromatic tuner. While the chromatic tuner uses the Fast Fourier Transformation, the algorithm in the strobe tuner is much closer to what you can find in oscilloscopes, and is computed directly on the GPU of your phone or tablet.

You can also use the tuner to tune by ear. The buttons at the bottom of the screen play the reference tones and you can tune accordingly. The tones are synthesized, and respects the setting of the concert pitch.

The tuner has been tested with many guitars, violins, basses, ukuleles and banjos.
