This tuner does it all and at a superior level to all other tuner apps, in my opinion. It has all the features - multiple temperaments, tuner, tone generator, metronome, and a recording feature that lets you play back the recording while the tuner is running. The viewing interface for the tuner is in a class by itself: very precise, not overly busy, providing at-a-glance impression of what you are doing but also greater precision if you want it. Now it provides the option of extreme sensitivity, greater by far than any tuner I’ve seen - you can set a very large amount of real estate on your device to represent just two or six cents, thus challenging yourself to a very high standard - if you wish. Therefore it is suitable for the highest-caliber musicians, useful to professionals and students/amateurs alike. It is the only tuner you will need!
This app is easy to navigate and is extremely helpful for most musical activities. Need a metronome? You can set it for anything between 1 bpm or 400 bpm, have 1-16 beats per measure, and it can subdivide all the way up to the 512th note (because you need that). You can also customize the tuner: tune vertically vs horizontally, change the concert A calibration, the instrument transposition, the alternate temperament, the temperament key, and change the theme (light or dark). You can also record a practice session, and the app will score you based on how often you were playing (or singing) in tune. It includes a tone generator. Anyways, a really great app and would definitely recommend for all instrument players.
I absolutely love this app which enables me to track tuning and vibrato as I play flute, record myself, have a metronome running with a variety of sounds and rhythms, and see personal practice scores for each session! I highly recommend tunable! The only problem is that the latest version has crashed twice in the last 10 minutes since I downloaded it, which is very surprising and unfortunate. I hope the developers will fix it soon. UPDATE: A few days after posting this review, the developers contacted me personally, saying they’d fixed the app and it should be working. And indeed, it works perfectly now! Thank you Tunable!
I find the tuning display very informative. It includes a graph of pitch vs time and a visually useful and helpful indication of how close the current pitch is. I also appreciate the ability to adjust its pickiness for "in tune", and to transpose (e.g. for b flat clarinet). The built in metronome is also very useful, flexible and well designed. It offers quick and easy tempo setting via a band of tempos near the bottom, tap to set tempo, adjustable beats per measure and subdivisions per beat. And, of course, it can be used in tuner mode (including stopping and starting it). The only thing I miss is a spectrum display (like TonalEnergy).
I’ve had Tunable for a couple of years now and have really loved it for most of that time, using it to tune my double bass accurately in noisy green rooms and loud orchestra rehearsals without issue. However, it seems with each additional update to Tunable the tuner within the app has become more unreliable and prone to freeze / crash. At first, I would just have to close it and reopen the app and it would work fine afterwards. Now, frequently I’ll go to tune with the app and it won’t register that I’m playing any notes at all, or it registers at such a delay that I am unable to use it to tune at all, even if I am in a silent room... While it’s cool that Tunable has been adding new functions in the application, etc, I would rather that the tuner work. At this point I’m deleting and looking for something else. Buy at your own risk
