About this app

BeeFlat is a tuner for every piper at every level. It provides readings that are accurate to .1 of a hertz and a historic view of the pitch that allows you to monitor fluctuations in blowing and adjust your tuning accordingly.

The interface has been designed with simplicity and ease of use in mind. You can take a new reading with just one button press, reverse the scale for use on drones, lock the current reading and more.

BeeFlat uses pitch detection algorithms that have been tested on a wide range of drone and reed combinations. These algorithms have been tailored to temperament and tonal qualities of the bagpipes making BeeFlat the most accurate tuner for the bagpipes available today.

The settings are configurable including an adjustable scale range, the ability to have readings shown relative to concert pitch (450s) or their actual pitch (480s) and solo temperament options. The adjustable scale range allows you to dial in a level of sensitivity that is suitable to the level of the player you are tuning. BeeFlat is suitable for use by a top level Grade One band about to go on at The World's right through to a novice band at their first practice.

BeeFlat was designed and developed by Matt Fraser in Melbourne, Australia. Matt lived in Scotland for five years where he played for the Inveraray and District Pipe Band and competed in solo competitions around the games, including the Silver Medal piobaireachd competitions at Oban and Inverness. In addition to Matt's piping credentials, he has been a professional software developer for over 10 years, developing software for some of the world's largest and well known enterprises.

Best tuner I have used by far. Was a bit bambooselled when I first opened it. After reading the instructions realised that it was very easy to use. Buttons down the side are not very responsive especially with my sausage fingers. But minor detail

As an Android user I had been frustrated by the lack of availability of the Murray Blair tuner my bandmates with iPhones loved so much. I saw the BeeFlat tuner mentioned somewhere (a Facebook page I believe) and decided to give it a shot. I couldn't be more satisfied! The BeeFlat tuner is easy to use and accurate. Even if the Blair tuner came to Android now, I would stick with the BeeFlat.

Difficult to understand for a beginner. An instructional video would help.
