About this app

iDrumTune Pro is the world’s most advanced, accurate and intelligent system for assisting and educating on drum tuning – used by thousands of drummers all over the world!


"an invaluable aid not only for drummers but also studio engineers and producers" - Sound on Sound Magazine (the world's most read music technology magazine)

"I can’t recommend this app highly enough ... for the money, it is indispensable. It's simple, accurate, looks good, and the tuning information is worth the cost of the app alone." - www.mikedolbear.com (expert drummers' website)

iDrumTune Pro brings unrivalled accuracy and features that have never been possible before for assisting with drum tuning.

iDrumTune Pro includes the following features:

* Pitch Tuning – to make your drums sing at their perfect tone and allow you to play musical phrases around the kit

* Lug Tuning – to ensure that the drumhead is evenly tuned and gives a smooth and warm tone

* Resonant Head Tuning – to allow you to be sure that the two heads are working together and giving rich overtones

* Spectrum Analyzer – so you can really start to understand what frequencies are excited and heard when playing the drums

* The Science of Drum Tuning – and extensive manual to help you learn the science and art of drum tuning and getting the best out of iDrumTune Pro 

iDrumTune is the first and by far the most intelligent and accurate system for analyzing drum sounds and assisting tuning – developed by drummers, music producers and acoustics research Professors. iDrumTune provides you with a measurement of the drumhead vibration frequency, much in the same way to an acoustic guitar tuner, which measures the vibration frequency of a guitar string. In Pitch Tuning mode, you simply hold the device microphone over the center of a drum, about 2-4 inches away, and strike the drum in the center.

The iDrumTune readout shows the recorded sound waveform and gives the strongest frequency recorded. There is also a tuning indicator bar which shows the drumhead tuning relative to musical notes, so iDrumTune can be used to ensure that your drums are in key with each other or the song you are playing. A frequency spectrum view also allows more detailed analysis and helps with tuning the drum at the lug positions.

IDrumTune Pro provides advanced tuning features including an intelligent filter function, Lug Tuning mode and Resonant Head Tuning mode. The filter allows unwanted frequencies to be ignored by the analysis algorithm, whilst Lug Tuning mode offers the simplest and most innovative method for tuning an even frequency response at the lug positions on the drumhead.

Drum Tuning isn’t easy, and drums don’t respond exactly the same way every time you hit them. For that reason, it's valuable to know a little about the science of drum tuning. iDrumTune includes a comprehensive text on the science of drums and drum tuning in order to help you get the best of iDrumTune and to become an expert drum tuner!

I have this on my Google pixel 3 and so far so good! Definitely makes tubing drums easier and I can say following the pitch, then lug, and then resonant relation, toms are sound really good. There are a few things that are annoying like having to go back to main menu and then back into certain functions, but maybe it's just me not knowing certain things. I did have an issue this last time where I couldn't get RTF to change even thought I kept changing tuning, but just showed me RTF of 1.

Very good app. It appears to be accurate and certainly gives very consistent results. The lug tuner is excellent and is the only app I've found to work for this so far. The only criticism I have is that it freezes ...a lot. It mostly freezes for me when switching between modes, so not a huge issue and It is easy enough to fix by closing and re-opening the app and it's a lot cheaper than a separate drum-bot tuner. But if you find it's not recognising a drum strike, it's probably frozen

Hi David, many thanks for posting your review. If the app is freezing occasionally, it is because the device is running out of processing memory to perform the analysis. This is usually because other background apps are using the phone memory. Try shutting background apps down before launching iDrumTune and this should improve it's functionality.

Save yourself the frustration of trying to tune your drums with a generic instrument tuner. I spent a couple of days trying other tuners before finding this one. After watching the tutorial and reading the instructions this is pretty clear cut. I'm really impressed with how this tuner catches the pitch when other apps just can't quite do it. What really puts the icing on the cake is this app isn't subscription based! Well done. Highly recommended

Daniel, thanks so much for taking the time to post this review! It really helps us to keep users informed and that makes it easier for us to continue making improvements and posting free updates. We put a lot of acoustics research into the app, so it's great to hear you can tell the difference against a conventional tuner. Happy drumming!
