Description

Pitched Tuner has been designed by musicians for both beginners and professionals. It helps you to quickly and easily tune your instrument using the microphone on your Android device.

It works well for a wide range of instruments: strings, woodwind, brass, guitars, voice, and more. Even very low bass strings can be tuned.

Simple controls and clear visuals make this tuner app great for beginners. Responsive and precise algorithms provide professional level accuracy for more advanced players.

Hands free tuning means you can tune all of your strings without ever having to touch the screen - you don't want to have to reach for your guitar tuner in between tuning each string, and now you don't have to.

This tuner app has two modes:

- Instrument tuner

- Chromatic tuner

The instrument tuner shows you the target notes for the instrument and tuning that you have selected - this is particularly useful for stringed instruments. For example a guitar tuner would show the notes EADGBE if you chose standard guitar tuning, or DADGBE if you chose drop D tuning. Or a violin tuner would show GDAE. You can then just play each string and the tuner will identify which string you played and whether it is sharp or flat. Pitched Tuner has built in tunings for many common instruments including banjo, bass 4, 5 and 6 string, cello, double bass, guitar including 7 string, ukulele, viola and violin. If your instrument or your preferred tuning aren't included then you can easily create your own in the app. Please email us if you want your tuning added to the built in ones.

The chromatic tuner displays the note that is closest to what is currently being played - this could also be called 'free tuning' mode. If you play an A, it shows an A. This is useful for instruments with lots of notes (piano tuning for example). Some stringed players might also prefer this mode - particularly if you play instruments with several common tunings such as the guitar (it's personal preference!). It means you can quickly tune your guitar from standard to drop D without having to touch the app (assuming it's already visible on your screen).

Pitched Tuner displays a traditional tuner needle and dial. It clearly shows the frequency being played as well as the nearest note and error in cents (one cent is one hundredth of a semitone). The dial then allows you to easily track small changes in pitch. A separate volume indicator tells you how clearly the microphone is picking up your instrument sound.

This tuner app can also sound a reference note which you can use to tune your instrument by ear (which is always a good skill to practice), or as a target note when you are re-stringing your guitar/violin/etc. You can choose from a pure sine sound, which is precise but quiet, or a simulated piano, guitar or clarinet.

You can vary the reference tuning pitch away from the common 440Hz. You can also configure the app to adjust for non-concert pitch instruments, for example the B-flat trumpet.

There's a choice of light or dark themes and you can adjust the volume sensitivity of the app for quieter instruments and noisy environments.
