If you’re a vinyl junkie, you want your music to sound exactly as the artist intended - and that means 33⅓ RPM, not 35. Previously, checking your turntable for accuracy was difficult and inexact. But no longer. Measuring your turntable’s speed is now as simple as setting your phone down. Just start Turntabulator, place it on your platter, and start spinning. In as little as a few seconds, Turntabulator will adapt its output to your turntable, revealing its analysis in a stabilized rotating display that has to be seen to be believed. No twisting your neck - just read and be delighted.
Through the power of Musical Analysis with Gyroscopically Indifferent Calculations (MAGIC), no gyroscope is required, so Turntabulator works just fine on older devices. In fact, the results are more accurate than the gyroscope would provide.
Turntabulator offers two measurement modes. Quick Mode will give you results within 0.1 RPM very quickly, typically in 15 seconds or less. Or, if you’re a perfectionist, use Exact Mode for more precise results, typically reaching 0.01 RPM error or less within one or two minutes.
Turntabulator will auto-sense 33⅓ or 45 RPM, or can be fixed at either setting. It then displays the percentage error compared to the target RPM, and whether your turntable is running slow or fast.
That’s it! Start using Turntabulator, and make sure your vinyl sounds as perfect as possible.

Ratings and Reviews
Indispensable for the vinyl junkie.
Fantastic. Works just as described.
One point to note, though. If your turntable has an off-board pod motor and a long belt around the periphery of the platter, you need to allow a few hours playing time for the belt to settle if it is removed and replaced. I speak from experience.
Be careful when using this on an iPad. On a phone, it’s ok. The phone is small enough to lay flat on the platter. My iPad however, had to be carefully laid against the spindle to fit and avoid hitting the tone arm and I had to watch it didn’t slip on my acrylic platter. I got 33.5 on my Pro-Ject Debut Carbon. That’s good enough for me. I would have preferred it to be priced at £1 max, though.
Not for use with iPad
Really p*ssed off. After seeing in the notes section of this app that it's iPad compatible, I went ahead and paid for this app. First thing you see when you start the software is a warning not to use it with the iPad! What?!?
This should be made clear before ordering! OK so it's only £1.50 but its still useless to me and a waste of money as I only own an iPad not an iPhone.
