Instrument Tuner – updated versions

Tune them all with audio tunerThere have been a number of updates, improvements and even a new version of Audio Tuner over the last fortnight.

If you haven’t already, consider upgrading. Here are the main changes:

PC Version
A pitch analysis component has been added to simplify the tuning process. This quickly indicates if the note is to too high or too low.
Instrument Tuning - pitch analysis
The performance of the software has also been improved.

Android Tuner
An Instrument Tuner for Android has been released.

This version of the software can only play the required note, rather than doing the full spectrum analysis. Although not as cool, it is surprisingly easy to use.

Hopefully in future Android versions it will possible to implement the spectrum analysis as well.

Windows Mobile, Pocket PC Tuner
The tone generator functionality has been added to the Windows Mobile Tuner, providing an alternate tuning method – verify the string is tuned correctly by hearing the correct note.

Warning: If you are in a meeting (tuning your guitar!), check your mobile volume before you hit “Hear Note”.

Java based tuner – Nokia, Sony, etc
A tone generator has been added to the Mobile Java Audio Tuner – hear the correct note on your mobile for verification, as well as getting the spectrum analysis.

If your handset doesn’t support the spectrum analysis, you may now be able to use the tone generator to keep your musical instrument in tune! Yeah!

A lot of work has been put in to getting the software to work properly on more mobile handsets, with a number of performance improvements, so that the spectrum analysis is more usable on less capable mobiles. If you’ve had problems in the past, this version might be just the ticket.

Where to get your version
