Tuned up an electric 12 string. Had a bit of trouble as theres no setting for one.
Works pretty much as described. Seems kinda sensitive to overtones, especially on brass instruments that don't produce anything close to a sine wave. If you're trying to get a pitch "close enough", this app will work fine
It's a fully chromatic tuner, so, unlike some tuners, you can tune whatever you want. There are specific tunings available, but, given you know how your instrument is tuned, they shouldn't be necessary. There is a paid version, without ads, but the only feature it has over the free version is the ability to make your own tunings, for strange guitar tunings or less popular instruments, but, again, since it's fully chromatic, you can still tune whatever you'd like to tune with the free version. The tracking is fine overall, with one strange problem: it tends to pickup the 2nd harmonic of sounds when they aren't right next to the tuner. Since the 2nd harmonic corresponds exactly to an octave, it effectively just means that sometimes it says things are an octave higher than they are. You can still tune it like that, if the octave overtone is in tune, so is the root, it's just strange. It might be useful if you're into Mongolian throat singing, but otherwise, it's just a small problem. Moving the instrument closer fixes that.
It'd be cool if it there was an option for reporting the highest or lowest pitch within a melody. Otherwise, it's a great app. Works just as described at the interface is minimalistic and straightforward.
Great tuning app! Best one I've found as a music teacher!
Best tuner so far. Worked great for my cigar box 3 string guitar.
