This app helped me in an emergency. My Peterson Strobe failed to work at a client's home. Unfortunately, I had a major pitch raise to preform and I DID NOT want to do it by ear. It would have been better to practice a pitch raise on my own piano before doing a client's, but I had no other choice. I found this app to be more accurate and easier to understand than my Peterson. Furthermore, there are no moving parts to make noise, and it is small enough to fit on a spinette, and the piano sounded so much better when I finished. I think I will leave the Peterson at home today.
Very impressive! Thank you for making such a simple to use but very competent application.
FINALLY, a proper piano tuning tool for Android. Thank you so much.
Very easy to use and gives great sounding tunings. The tunings to my ears are a bit better than Entropy tuner, and much better than Tunelab in my opinion. The interface is great, and again, very easy to use. My few gripes are that the tuning needle could be a bit smoother and more responsive. Also I am not able to share the tuning files as specified in the help file. I cannot save them to my dropbox, nor add them as an email attachment. Hopefully these issues will be addressed in a future update.
I'm a piano technician and have used a variety of different tuning software. First, I should say that unlike a lot of the stuff that is marketed as tuning software for for pianos, this is the real deal. It produces good sounding piano tunings, and you can actually see the Railsback curve being calculated in real time. Overall the app reminds me most of Verituner, with its ease of use and quality of tunings, though Verituner's tuning wheel and needle are snappier and more stable. (Verituner also costs $600 last I checked.) I definitely prefer this to TuneLab, which you have to futz with to get a decent tuning in the tenor, and Entropy which requires you to laboriously sample all 88 notes before you can even start tuning. Compared to Accutuner the response is slow, which is true for all tuning software. Cybertuner is the program I haven't experimented with, as I haven't been able to bring myself to shell out $1000 plus the $80/year subscription. So for the price I'd definitely say this is the best deal.
I'm a retired piano tuner who occasionally gets asked to tune friends' pianos. I used RCT for years but when my old Windows Pocket PC died I couldn't justify the £1000 price tag to upgrade to the Apple version. Finally there is a reasonably priced, piano dedicated and easy to use Android app. Congratulations and I look forward to seeing the app evolve.
The spinning “strobe” rings are now more responsive, giving faster and more precise feedback on the instantaneous pitch. The divisions per ring now change based on the frequencies of the harmonics being measured.
Major improvements to the Pitch Raise procedure, including more accurate initial measurements and the addition of a maximum overpull setting.
Many bug fixes and enhancements.
