Description

"My most indispensable app is my guitar tuner, Cleartune. None of the old visual or analog tuners are as precise. I've even taken it on stage with me!" - Rosanne Cash "Cleartune and Clockwork are my most used apps." - Ezra Oklan (Nicole Atkins, Norah Jones, Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra, Matt Beck (Matchbox 20), Chico Hamilton, Arnie Lawrence) "I've been having trouble with interference on stage with other tuners for the iPhone. Used Cleartune last night before a gig and had no problems with stage noise. Excellent tuner for bass." - Rob Calder (Kanye West, Angus and Julia Stone, The Break and Repair Method, Ghostface Killah) Used in the making of the new Gorillaz album "The Fall" Follow us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/cleartune ----------------------------------- • Featured in Electronic Musician, Matchbox Mag, Making Music Mag, Premiere Guitar, MacWorld, Apple Staff Picks, Worship Leader Mag, Acoustic Guitar • Spotted in use backstage by The Black Keys, C.W. Stone King (www.va.ryanpolei.com), Grammy Nominee Sones de México (gearwire.com) ----------------------------------- Cleartune is a chromatic instrument tuner and pitch pipe that allows you to quickly and accurately tune your instrument using the built-in mic in your device. Cleartune features a unique "note wheel" interface allowing you to quickly find your pitch, paired with a highly responsive fine-tuning meter for the perfect tune. With support for custom temperaments, transposition, notations such as solfège, and adjustable calibration, Cleartune packs more power than most pro tuners, yet is simple enough for everyone to use. Cleartune can tune acoustic or electric guitar, bass, bowed strings, woodwinds, brass, piano, tympani and any other instrument that can sustain a tone. Most electronic tuners cannot properly tune a violin. With a built in temperament for violin family instruments, Cleartune will have the 5ths singing perfectly. Features: - Note Wheel Display - Ultra responsive 25 cent range fine tuning display - Needle Damping option - Accuracy ±0.01 semitone (±1 cent) - Selectable Temperaments - Selectable Notations (such as Solfège) - User-defined temperament and notations - Support for transposing instruments - Automatic reference note calibration - Adjustable A4 calibration in 0.1 Hz increment - Pitch Pipe/Tone generator - Selectable tone waveform - Automatic or manual note selection

    I just pulled out my old iPhone 4 with an earlier version of this app on it and it still works. That’s the app I miss. I put my old iPhone 4 and my newer iPhone SE with the latest version of this app on it (as of 6/16/18) side by side and played a tune. The two year old Cleartune app detected the notes and worked properly. The newer phone with the latest version couldn’t even tell a note was being played even if I put the instrument right up to the microphone. It would only make an attempt to detect my playing if I played the highest notes I could. This was with both apps set to the exact same settings. I don’t know what you guys did, but the app is nearly worthless for me now. Most of the time when I try to change the tuning from 440 to something else it ends up popping right back to 440 as soon as I leave the options screen. I don’t understand why this app isn’t working better than it is. Maybe there is some conflict with iPhone SE or something. I have since moved on to other apps, but I really wish this one still worked.
  • No more analog reading

    I’m familiar with this tuner, It used to be my best tuner ever,I used it for 5 years but it’s is not as great as it once was, the note doesn’t get picked up as quick as before. It doesn’t really scan quickly. I hate this digital look. Good news is, it’s precise. So please, give us back the analog feel. It has been a while since the last update.
  • Used to be the standard...

    This app has been on my devices for years because it was the most accurate and responsive tuner out there for iOS. After the update, it has been unusable and inaccurate. I have no problem using the Polytune on my board, but Cleartune was always nice to have in a pinch, or for an impromptu acoustic jam. I hope they get back to the basics and fix the shoddiness and new design of the app so that it is responsive and usable again. I did pay full price for it at one point.
  • Why did you remove features?

    This has been my go-to tuner for years. As a music teacher, I was able to use the app on two different devices side-by-side to demonstrate what it sounds like when two pitches go in and out of tune with each other (using the tone generator). The “unlocking” feature that removes the pitch grid is essential to the success of this lesson because the students could see the wheel move farther and farther away from the pitch and compare it with the sound waves they hear (as the waves get faster, the pitches go out of tune with one another). They LOVED it and it was an extremely effective lesson. This feature has been removed, unfortunately, and now I need to find an alternative app. Very disappointed.
  • Used to be perfect.

    I miss the lock button feature. I liked being able to turn the lock off on the pitch pipe and generate tones at any frequency.
  • Not very good, waste of money, useless

    1. Does not do a good job tuning my santoor that is like a hammered dulcimer and has 100 strings, is not accurate and the needles bounces all over the place. I use the tuner in guitar toolkit which works much better. 2. Custom temperaments doesn't really work, my tonic note is D and want to use custom tuning from that, but not working, it is not clear how they are determining the few frequency of the root note. 3. I email them about item #2 months ago, no reply. Pretty much useless app.
  • Latest update stopped working!

    Ive used this tuner for years. It was great! Now the dial just sits there. Guess I’ll have to use my ears.

    This tuner to me seems like the old school Conn Strobe tuners. I got dialed after reading Roseanne Cash’s article in ? (National Enquirer?) no... I forget. “A musician will spend on average 2-3 lifetimes playing, then they do something else.” Satananda
  • Don’t like the update

    What happened to my favorite tuner? The update now makes the meter so herky jerky compared to the more realistic movement, it is not only more difficult to use, it is annoying.
  • Used it for years, but it stopped working completely
