Introducing SteadyTune, the menu bar tuner for your Mac. Beautiful, accurate, stable, intuitive: you have to see it to believe it.

Guitar players and musicians are some of the heaviest Mac users around. SteadyTune, the Mac menu bar tuner from the makers of GuitarToolkit and AmpKit, is beautifully implemented, amazingly lightweight, and always available when you need it. Now you can add tuning to the list of musical tasks your Mac is great at!

SteadyTune's tuning algorithm is completely new, developed based on our 5 years of experience with the award-winning GuitarToolkit app. SteadyTune improves upon earlier-generation tuners in two ways: better tuning accuracy, and vastly improved needle stability when tuning. The difference is dramatic.

A great tuning algorithm deserves a great tuning visualization, and SteadyTune introduces an altogether new visualization, with a high-precision log-ruled tuning strip that smoothly animates from out-of-tune dark red to in-tune bright green. The combination of this highly-intuitive visualization with SteadyTune's stability and precise note detection results in a fast, accurate and enjoyable tuning experience.

Whatever instrument you're tuning, SteadyTune has you covered. And the list extends well beyond guitar:

◼ 6 String Guitar
◼ 7 String Guitar
◼ 12 String Guitar
◼ 4 String Bass
◼ 5 String Bass
◼ 6 String Bass
◼ Banjo
◼ Mandolin
◼ Ukulele
◼ Violin
◼ Cello
◼ Viola
◼ Double Bass

In fact, with SteadyTune's "All Instruments" setting, you can tune just about anything—woodwinds, brass, you name it. Note: bagpipes are prohibited.


◼ 13 identified instruments plus "All Instruments" mode
◼ Over 200 alternate tunings
◼ Adjustable reference pitch
◼ "Always on top" mode
◼ "Start at login" option
◼ Mappable keyboard shortcuts
◼ Tune using the built-in mic or select an audio interface
◼ Works with AmpKit LiNK HD and other USB guitar interfaces
◼ Level meter shows signal strength

Customer Reviews

App does open, just a little confusing how...

Edited my review --- I thought the program was not running, but it just doesn't open a new window when opened. Look in the upper right corner of your desktop (by the sound and wireless icons). The tuning fork shows the propram is working - just click on the icon. Tech support responded to my concerns in a matter of hours. Once this was explained I found the app very easy to use. I was all tuned up in moments. Thanks for the help and the great little program!

Ignore the Negative Reviews

Works great and exactly how it appears to. I'm pretty sure the reviewers saying the app doesn't open don't understand what a menu bar app is. Click the little tuning fork and it opens every time.

Now it won’t open

Just downloaded it. Opened the first time. But now won’t open at all. Please make a fix.
