flutietootie12's Review of Free Chromatic Tuner

Reviewed on 9/5/19 1:39 PM

Tuner the BIG BROKE. I have used it all three years of high school band, but up until the end of junior year, this tuner has remained frozen on a singular note. Perhaps this is a iPad issue? Doubt it, but I’ve tried deleting and redownloading it, but it is futile. The rest of my band members can use the app perfectly. Very not cool. No thanks.

Easy to read.

Average Georgian's Review of Free Chromatic Tuner

Reviewed on 9/5/19 1:39 PM

Excellent, my kids love it! It works well at birthday parties! - Now that you know I’m real, it works great. It is great for any band/choir. It adjusts with sound quite quickly. But I guess every other tuner does that. I mainly chose it cause it I like how it looks.

Best tuner ever

Vinicius Nathan De Oliveira's Review of Free Chromatic Tuner

Reviewed on 9/5/19 1:39 PM

I’m usually in band and I can tell if I’m off tune but I tried this app and amazingly it worked So maybe you can change the app name to “piano/band tuner” or something in that sort because I play a electric piano and I got this app for fun and I changed me settings on it to be a trumpet and surprisingly it said the notes correctly I would highly recommend this app to any band director

It’s a good Tuner

The only thing I don’t like is the ads. Of course I don’t wanna pay for an app Tuner so, this is super cool.

Great app but

Great app pretty on point with the tuning but I wish it had a list of tunings like other apps like drop A, B, C , standard, half step etc

This tool is a great help in tuning a new flute barrel. I’d be lost without it.

greenpro's Review of Free Chromatic Tuner

Reviewed on 9/5/19 1:39 PM

I am a professional concert piano tuner of 35 years, so I know about tuning. Some of this review is in response to what is suggested by the name of the app and some reviews. I am reviewing the free version. First, the A440 is dead on. With other popular apps, it may or not be. You can use this tuner to reliably tune a guitar or harp or harpsichord or other instrument with decent (but not ideal) results. Or you can rely on it to check where the pitch is. 2nd, if you understand how the physics of tuning work, you might be able to use it to tune parts of the piano. But don’t expect this app to replace your piano tuner, and here’s why: 1. Most of the skill in piano tuning is in manipulating the tuning pin, string and overall tension so that the tuning is stabile. If you don’t know what you’re doing, you’ll make the tuning worse by trying it yourself. It typically takes about 1000 piano tunings to develop this skill and some piano tuners never do. 2. Piano tuners do not tune according to the fundamental frequencies of the strings except in the upper treble. We use other partials (google it) in tuning, and the upper treble will be flat if you use this app because of the physics of wire under tension causing the partials to be inharmonic. The app automatically dials in on the fundamental of the tone. You cannot set it to dial in on the partial you choose. So it will be useless for tuning the bass of the piano because we never tune the fundamentals in the bass. If we did, the bass would be very sharp. Professional electronic piano tuning devices employ highly complicated algorithms to calculate scale based on measured inharmonicity values that are different from instrument to instrument. You cannot expect to get this kind of technology for free. I paid $1800 for mine. So, I give 3 stars only because you cannot use this app to reliably perform what it’s name suggests - and based on some reviews, some users are trying to use it for that. The A440 is extremely accurate and I was able to achieve a decent tuning on my guitar with it. I can use it in the absence of my professional equipment to reliably measure or set the A440, but would then have to tune the piano aurally because this app is not designed to tune a “P-and.”
