Instrument Tuner – updated versions

Sunday, November 30th, 2008

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

As always, any feedback is appreciated.

Mobile Guitar Tuner – version 0.6 released

Sunday, October 19th, 2008

Mobile Instrument Tuner

I’m pleased to announce the release of version 0.6 of Audio Tuner for Java enabled mobiles.

If you have a Java enabled mobile, e.g. Nokia or Sony, or most other recent mobiles, this means you. Now you can tune your guitar wherever you are.

And not just guitars. You can also tune your autoharp, banjo, bass guitar, cello, mandolin, piano, ukulele and violin.

This version fixes a few annoying issues, such as the exit button not working. And we’ve added an audio signal strength indicator. If you try it out, please provide feedback.

Unfortunately, the issue with older Sony mobiles is still present – many of them only provide audio data in the AMR format, which the Supernifty software currently doesn’t support. Anyone with expertise with the AMR audio format, it’s your turn in the sun. Get in touch if you think you can help.

We are paying people to test the software on certain cellphone models. If you have one of the models listed, please try it out, and earn some cash in the process.

Musical Instrument Tuner for Java Enabled Mobiles

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2008

Mobile Instrument Tuner

I’m pleased to announce the release of Audio Tuner for Java enabled mobiles, version 0.3. If you have a Java enabled mobile, e.g. Nokia or Sony, or most other recent mobiles, this means you. Now you can tune your musical instrument wherever you are.

OK, so this is an alpha release. And unfortunately, Supernifty doesn’t have a Java enabled phone to test against. If you try it out, please provide feedback.

Alternatively, if anyone has a mobile they’d like to donate or sell to Supernifty for testing purposes, please get in touch. There are apparently zillions of unused mobiles lying useless in drawers, awaiting such an opportunity.

If you like the idea of testing for money, check out Test Army. It’s a new Supernifty project, and it’s nearing beta. There’ll be tests available, and money to be earnt, in the near future.

But, in the meantime, try out the new audio tuner, and let Supernifty know if it works.
