insTuner is a chromatic tuner that helps you tune instruments quickly and accurately. It also features a Tone Generator just like a pitch pipe with four different wave forms.

With advanced DSP (Digital Signal Processing) algorithm, it is highly accurate (±1/1000 semitone or ±0.1 cent precision). Rather than providing only one mode like other tuners, insTuner supports different tuning modes applicable to different situations, such as Instant Tuning Mode for quick tune and play, Fine and Strobe Modes for accurate tuning, FFT Mode for sound analysis etc. What's more, many advanced features are provided such as Concert A calibration, historical temperaments and transpositions, which make it more powerful than other tuners.

insTuner is well-designed and easy to use. It features a unique "fixed" note wheel, which helps you to find the position of detected pitch easily. You can also use it as an electronic pitch pipe to tune by ear, matching the generated tones.

It is suitable for tuning acoustic or electric guitar and bass, ukulele, mandolin, banjo, bouzouki, bowed strings, woodwinds, brass, piano, timpani and more. In fact, almost any instrument that sustains a tone can be tuned using insTuner. It supports Line-in Mode as well as Built-in Microphone Mode. Clip Microphone is supported too.

"Best tuner I've ever had. I'm a professional clarinetist, and I've told all of my musician friends to use this app."

"I highly recommend this app and who can beat the price. My violin teacher compared it to her personal device. She wants an ipad to get the app for her personal use. "

"This app is absolutely amazing, very clean interface and easy to use :) I'd give it six stars if I could!"

"I have the iPhone 5 and play tenor sax, I compared this to a 40 dollar tuner and its perfect..."

"As a high school band director, I use this tuner more often than my strobo tuner. Besides the obvious portability, it is actually a bit more sensitive than the multi thousand dollar strobo and I Iove the multitude of options!"

"Absolutely love this app. I use it for my guitar, my son's violin and upright bass. The new features are even more amazing..."

Customer Reviews

Seems to freeze and be inconsistent with notes?

I'm a beginner so take my review with a grain of salt. When I tried to use this I was first a little disappointed it didn't have that usual guitar tuner function where you see the strings you're supposed to be playing. But that's not a big deal, I was able to figure it out. The real problem for me was that after I played a note, the app sometimes seemed to freeze for several seconds and wouldn't pay attention if I played the note again. It also wasn't terribly consistent (perhaps because it's accurate down to a really small margin?) Eventually I became suspicious of how wildly it seemed to swing about when I was tuning one string, and so I just plucked the same string (without adjusting it) a couple times to see what happened. The results were all over the place, from as far left on the tuner as possible to the farthest right! It was on average more towards a certain value but any particular pluck was not reliable. Again maybe I'm just making some dumb beginner mistake... Will change my review if I find that's true!

Incredible tool

I am 57 yrs old and started to learn the violin a couple of months ago. I am still learning the finger positions and with this app I know when I have the right spot and I am learning the proper tone at the same time. There is no wondering with this app.

I highly recommend this app and who can beat the price. My violin teacher compared it to her personal device. She wants an ipad to get the app for her personal use.

I have a steel stand and the Ipad case with the magnet. I am able to have the ipad hang partially over the edge of the left side, held by the magnet, and have space for my music book. I play slow and am able to see each note. It is a great learning tool.

Finely Tuned!

This tuning app-eratus is indeed exquisite in its varied form and magnificent function. Its designer may well earn the Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of all the unnecessary sounds that I will avoid making as I practice my violin at home in the presence of my family during this my first year of instruction. And, if i haven't already said enough, I love this app because it is so easy to look at and use. I am satisfied completely, and I am certain that I will be richly rewarded musically for my small expenditure of money.
