Tune your chanter and drones on your pipes. Free and fully functional, with the in-application option to purchase an unlock for advanced features.

Braw Bagpipe Tuner (Formally Accord Bagpipe Tuner) has been written specifically for the tonal and tuning requirements of the Bagpipes, and uses highly advanced pitch detection algorithms which have been further customized for the pipes.

Thanks to our new QuantumNote technology, the Braw Bagpipe Tuner revolutionizes tuning with it's ability to quickly and accurately analyse the tuning of all notes on your chanter while you are playing a tune. This is far superior to all other tuning methods, which rely on holding a single note, as even the best players will adjust their blowing slightly when holding a single note.

Our QuantumNote technology allows you to analyse the tuning when it matters the most - when you are playing! Using QuantumNote, the app is aware of bagpipe ornamentation, and even uses this knowledge to help build an accurate tuning result.

* Tune chanter while playing - great for going round the members of a band and checking the tuning without stopping the practice!
* More accurate tuning - get the tuning as it actually sounds when playing
* Easy drone tuning - keeps separate results for Bass and Tenor drones

The tuner is responsive, accurate and precise. It it also written to be efficient, so you don't need and expensive phone or tablet to be able to run it. The efficiency also means it has relatively low battery consumption.

The tuner lets you tune your chanter and drones based on a reference Low A calibrated to your chanter.

The tuner automatically detects which chanter note or drone note you are playing, based on what is the loudest/closest to your devices microphone. The gauge will then indicate how sharp or flat your chanter note or drones are, allowing you to tune them to achieve sweet sounding pipes.

To suit your preference, different chanter tuning schemes can be chosen.

An optional high contrast theme can be set for outdoor use.

We genuinely welcome feedback, and in particular if you have any problems please don't hesitate to get in touch, either through the app, or via our website.
