About this app

From the creators of NodeBeat comes Tunable, the most intuitive visual toolkit for musicians.

Tunable is a chromatic tuner, tone/chord generator, metronome, and recorder that helps you learn to play steadily, in tune, and on beat. Featuring a unique “tuning history” display for visualizing pitch over time, Tunable is the perfect toolkit for beginning to professional musicians.

★ Learn to play in tune with sustained pitch history ★
Visualize how steadily you play or sing. As notes are held out, a white line draws how steady the pitch is. The straighter the line, the more consistent the pitch.

★ Improve your ear with tone and chord generator ★
Need a reference tone or chord? Use the tone and chord generator to play and sustain chords with various tone options. Choose from different temperaments to hear how they compare.

★ Keep tempo with an accurate and simple metronome ★
See the pulse with a visual metronome. View subdivision and current beat, with a large display and visual flash.

★ Record and share ★
Record your practice and performances. Add reverb for a professional sound. Share recordings through e-mail, SoundCloud, Dropbox and more.

★ Features ★

• Large, colorful tuning indicator clearly shows when in tune (green fills the screen)
• Clear, visual tuner with note, octave, cents (+\-), and frequency (hz) display
• Tuning history to see how well you’re sustaining notes over time
• Especially suited for wind instruments and strings with note detection from Tuba to Piccolo (24hz to 15khz+)
• Horizontal and vertical tuning displays
• Adjustable A=440 reference tone
• Change between equal, just, pythagorean, and 18 other tuning temperaments

Tone and Chord Generator
• Chromatic Tone Generator with multiple tone options and sustain
• Play and sustain chords
• Auto Octave rounding for easy note access

• Large number display with visual flash to see the downbeat, subdivision, and pulse
• Adjust tempo, beats per measure, and subdivision
• See tempo markings to quickly jump between standard tempos
• Tempo Tap (tap metronome center to set a tempo)
• Continues to play when screen is locked or in the background

• Record and save unlimited recordings
• Share recordings through e-mail, SoundCloud, DropBox, and more

• Highly accurate (1/100 of a cent) and responsive
• Transpose notes to any instrument
• Dark and light themes

Tunable is a great tuner and works especially well for tuning wind and string instruments such as:

• Guitar, Ukelele
• Piccolo, Flute
• Oboe, English Horn, Bassoon
• Eb, Bb/A Soprano Clarinet, Bass Clarinet
• Soprano, Alto, Tenor, and Baritone Saxophone
• Trumpet and Cornet
• French Horn
• Tenor and Bass Trombone
• Euphonium and Tuba
• Violin, Viola, Chello, and Bass

★ ★ ★ NOTE ★ ★ ★

The current version of Tunable for Android does NOT include practice stats (ie. practice score, note cents display, etc). The next version of Tunable for Android will take time to include these features.

★ ★ ★ PERMISSIONS ★ ★ ★

Tunable uses the Record Audio permission in order to listen and tune your instrument. Tunable also uses read and write access to your external storage in order to save and display recordings created within Tunable.

★ ★ ★ KNOWN ISSUES ★ ★ ★

On some devices, Google Assistant can interfere with the microphone. If the tuner does not appear to be working, try turning the "Ok Google" or "Google Assistant" settings "always-on" off to see if that solves the problem. This only applies to some devices and the device manufacturers are working on a solution.

After the last update, this app has been stuttering and does not have a smooth display anymore. This makes it very difficult to tune as it slowly tries to figure out what you are playing. I have tried force stopping the app and reinstalling it but that does not seem to work. I am on a Google Pixel 4 XL. As I wrote this message I saw a update available and has fixed this problem. Thank you!

Edit: the new features are really good! The tuning history scrolling is such a perfect way to visualize pitch! Definitely Tunable has the best implementation of the idea. I still would love to have the option to have the metronome instead of the tone generator in the main screen. And an option for a logarithmic scale for the pitch, instead of linear (logarithmic seems to be the standard in every other tuner)

Hi David, thanks for your review. I do plan on bringing the latest features from iOS to Android. I'm the only developer, so it takes a while to be able to provide features on both platforms. I appreciate your patience.

Sadly this app has become completely unusable for me. The metronome "crackles" the entire time, and I've tried a bunch of different sounds/settings to see if some do or don't, but no matter what settings I've tried, it's not doing the job I PAID for it to do. Samsung Galaxy S8. -- The other issue I have with it is that it appears designed for tablets, and I use on my phone. The controls for changing the tempo for the metronome are very hard to use. The "slider" doesn't stay in one place so it's hard to get the exact tempo, and the +/- buttons are so tiny it's more likely I'll pull down the notification bar instead of changing the tempo.
