Ever sat in a trad session and wondered what was the name of that great tune someone just played? Well now you can search a database of over 22,000 tunes from your iPhone/iPod BY PLAYING!

Hold your device up to a melody instrument such as the tin-whistle, flute, concertina, uilleann pipes, accordion or banjo, hit record and the melody will be extracted and submitted to the tunepal.org search engine for matching.

Matching tunes are downloaded to your device, where you can view and edit the notation or the stave, email the tune, post it to facebook or play it back using the high quality playback engine based on ABC2MIDI and FMOD.

Ratings and Reviews

Does not even distinguish jigs from reel

The cat's miouw

I just bought this App and applied it to recorded session music as well as to individual tunes I played on the fiddle. It only recognized one tune out of 15! Often it suggested both jigs and reels!! The recorded session tunes were quite clear and played by some of the most respected musicians in London. Very disappointing!!

Awesome App👍👍


One of my most used & fave apps. What an amazing use of technology…Genius 🎻🎶

Fantastic app


I usually record sessions on my iPhone and then use the app later to go through the tunes and get the names and notes. This app has been the sole reason Ive been able to increase my repertoire so quickly.

Sometimes it takes a couple of shots to get the tune right but thats why it's best to record the tune at the session and then use the app later at home in a quiet environment.

Absolutely brilliant app. Would love to see an iPad optimised version too!
