Exclusively featuring StopperStimmung™ (1988), a slightly stretched tuning creating an amazing and clear sound on your instrument by the tunings stunning structural symmetry. The necessary temperament compromise is strongly lessened by symmetrically interfering harmonics making chords to appear as beeing pure tuned.
TUNIC GUITAR 440:
The basic version provides normal pitch (440 Hz) and classic EADGBE tuning template.
TUNIC GUITAR CLASSIC:
Classic EADGBE tuning template and variable pitch selection between 415 and 460 Hz and double sensitivity for the professional classic guitar player.
TUNIC GUITAR PRO: The full version for the professional user requiring more tuning settings. Provides variable pitch (415-460 Hz), a selection of common open tuning templates (Classic, Classic ♭, Open E, Open G, Open D, Open C, DADGAD, Dropped D, Dobro) and highest sensitivity (0.02 cent resolution). Capo use on fret 1-5 supported, what also allows verification of saddle compensation for optimal nut height / nut distance on fret 1.
+++Important: iPod touch 2G requires iPhone headset with built in microphone.
Ipod touch first gen. not supported.+++
As the extreme precision requires a high amount of processor performance, note selection is manually.
HOW TO USE:
Fine tuning resolution: 0.05 cent in a visible range of +-10 cent
Coarse tuning resolution: 0.5 cent in a visible range of +-100 cent
Pluck the string to be tuned about one time per second, while muting the other strings. To handle the fine tuning indicator on this extreme precision level, measure the pitch by very small or no string tension changes. This requires some experience even for professionals but is honoured by an uncomparable sound experience.
Always tune your instrument in 2-3 cycles, as every change of one string affects the other strings. Tune your instrument often to achieve a good tuning stability. Pluck the string with a plectrum to produce an overtone rich sound with the microphone close to the instrument.
When comparing with other tuners, the order of the tuner used is very important: A less precise tuner usually measures to be "spot on" a tuning done first with Tunic and hence appears to deliver the "same" results as Tunic, due to its wider tolerances. Tune first with the less precise tuner to notice the audible differences Tunic can visually indicate.
For sound examples, listen to the dobro guitar played by Thomas Maos on the album "Larger Than Life" (Silent Art Orchestra), entirely tuned with the Tunic software:
What's New in Version 1.6.1
iOS 4.3 compatibility
User Interface Update
Even better than before
This is a fantastic tuner, and it couldn't be more convenient. The only quirky thing about the app was that it was hypersensitive--the indicators were a bit jumpy. This new version is smoother all the way around, with a slicker interface and even a spiffy new icon. Very, very nice app. I highly recommend it.
There are better for WAY less
What a pain having to select a note press the appropriate button then tune. I have about 10 tuners and have spent a bundle looking for a really good tuner that works on stage. This doesnt. Way too expensive at $20. I was had. Look elsewhere.
Works Great But...
This by far the best tuner I've found. However it sometimes tunes and sometimes doesn't. I'll get four stings then it won't recognize anything after that.
