Peterson Strobe Tuners' popular StroboSoft tuning application for the iPad® offers the unmatched accuracy of a mechanical strobe tuner for the highest degree of precision available in a software tuning application.

Tune your electrics, acoustics, brass and woodwind instruments quickly and easily with 1/10th cent strobe precision.

Peterson Tuners has offered tuning solutions for over 65 years and is the only company specializing in hardware, software, and mobile app tuning products for all levels of musicians.

Exclusive iPad features:
• Larger strobe display - Tune from across the room with ease due to the larger display.
• Manual note select - Select notes to 'target' when tuning to avoid unwanted harmonics or partials from the display.
• Display of Hz and MIDI note, in addition to cents option - View Hertz or MIDI note numbers for any note/octave combination. Cents readout is also included.
• VGA output - Send the output of iStroboSoft to a projector. Excellent for classroom use or studios.
• Optimized layout to utilize larger iPad display - All features are located on the main screen so users do not need to dig through layered menus.

App features:
• Exclusive strobe display allows you to achieve an unmatched level of accuracy.
• Note/Octave window displays the correct note and octave for the note being tuned.
• Cents display allows you to see how far out of tune your note is in cent values.
• Glowing flat/sharp indicators assist when tuning a note very far from the target position.
• Noise filter: Use the noise filter when utilizing an external mic or clip-on tuning device to help reduce the effect of extraneous environmental noise during tuning.
• Input boost: The input boost will raise all input frequencies by a fixed +24dB.
• Calibration mode: iStroboSoft-HD can be calibrated to an external source guaranteeing 1/10th cent accuracy.
• Drop/Capo mode: iStroboSoft-HD will auto-transpose notes up or down to one full octave.
• Adjustable Concert A: Change the Concert A reference of the tuner to accommodate tuning to a fixed instrument, such as a piano, or tune instruments that do not utilize the typical Western A440 reference.

Guitar, bass, brass, and woodwind instrument strobe tuner. Sweetened Tunings™ or Buzz Feiten Tuning System® is not supported in this app.

Peterson Accessories:
• Optional adaptor cable for direct line-in access available from Peterson. Connect your instruments with pickups directly into the iPad and eliminate unwanted ambient noise. Great for classrooms, stages, and studios.
• Optional mini capsule microphone available from Peterson that provides added directionality when tuning acoustic instruments. (The iPad has a built-in mic and this can be used instead but if more sound source control is desired, please use the mini mic.)

• Designed for iPad/iPad 2/New iPad.
• This app will not work on iPhone or iPod touch devices. Please refer to our iPhone/touch version of iStroboSoft for these devices.

Customer Reviews


Users of any aps that utilize the device's microphone, including iStroboSoft and iStroboSoft HD, must go to Settings >> Privacy >> Microphone and turn on the green slide switch. This is due to a change in the iOS, not a defect in the ap.

Manual setting and noise filter

Manual setting and noise filter were extremely helpful as I tuned homemade marimba bars.

Has never worked

This app has never worked. Use apogee one annd other audio apps with no problem. Never detects an input signal. Have tried everything. Have contacted developer. No updates or fix.
