Musician's Kit - Tuner, Metronome, and Sound Recorder
By Kevin Murphy
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Never again will you need to switch back and forth between apps while practicing. Musician's Kit places all of your "musical utilities" (tuner, metronome, and sound recorder) into one convenient bundle.
Using the built-in microphone (or headset) on your iOS device, you can get a quick and easy tune up before rehearsal. It also offers a tone generator, if that's what you prefer. The tuner is accurate to a quarter of a cent at A-440 (1/400 of the distance between A and Bb).
The metronome in Musician's Kit offers an intuitive interface that allows you to set Beats/Minute, Beats/Measure, and Subdivisions/Beat. It even lets you tap in your own tempo for easy synchronization with a recording or that tune you have in your head.
Musician's Kit also allows you to record and play audio tracks on your iOS device. The recorder stores its audio tracks in .wav files on your device, so you don't lose any quality caused by compression. You can download your .wav files by connecting your device to iTunes (click on your device in the left hand column, then click on "Apps", and click MusiciansKit under "File Sharing"). The Recorder also lets you convert the wave files to .AAC, so you can easily share audio tracks by email attachment (WAV files are too large for email).
What's New in Version 1.3.2
Just a fix for iOS 9. Sorry to all who were affected by this. Thank you for your patience and loyalty to Musician's Kit!
Great for band kids!
Metronome subdivides and is super easy for kids. The tuner works great for most ranges. It will not only tune a pitch but will also play a pitch for students to match. Its easy to tell if you're out of tune... some of the other apps out there are difficult to read! It's great as a pitch pipe for timpani too. Also, students can use the record feature for self assessments during practice session. It's all there in one app which makes it a great choice!
Great app, recent problem
Love this, use it all the time practicing cello and in chamber groups. Recently at least the metronome audio and maybe the whole app seems to be disabled by some advertisements, I believe A Google ad offering to download their app. This can be disastrous in the middle of a rehearsal! (iPhone 6+ recently uodated with latest iOS)
MESSAGE TO APP PROGRAMERS AND MUSICIANS
The metronome on this app is not accurate, after comparison to three other metronome apps as well as a Dr. Beat metronome, this ones tempo is faster than what ever bpm shown as you set it, it's almost 10 clicks faster than what is shown, this again was compared to a Dr. Beat and three other metronome apps, all the others but this app, matched tempo perfectly, SO WARNING, don't use for time since it will be wrong, but the tuning and recording features work perfectly.
