Editors' Review

+
AP Tuner takes a classic musician's instrument tuner and puts it on the computer, while adding a few extra, useful features. It offers a "note preset" function that allows musicians to tune to the standard notes used by their instruments, as well as customizable temperaments. It has a harmonic graph feature that shows the nearby harmonics of the note being played, aiding in more precise tuning adjustments. The interface is smart and straightforward, with menus and settings logically organized and easy to find. Our main objection was that it works only in standalone mode, without an option to be used as a DirectX or VST plug-in inside one of the most popular audio-editing programs. This drawback alone may keep it out of professional recording studios, but we would otherwise happily recommend it to computer-friendly musicians.

"Wouldn't open. Gave me pop-up viruses. *** cnet!"

May 23, 2013  |  By mandamaria

 |  Version: AP Tuner 3.06

Pros

No pros at all.

Cons

I managed to get past the opening screen which wants you to buy a key from their defunct website, at which point the program immediately stopped responding. It didn't open even once. Plus you've got to download two other extra programs that gave me pop-up ads. Seriously disappointed.

Summary

Awful, unresponsive, virus carrier.

"Thoroughly Confusing and Ineffective"

April 10, 2011  |  By JonathanShanghai

 |  Version: AP Tuner 3.06

Pros

I guess if you are a computer nerd with a PHD then all the dials and settings may mean something to you. If you want to just tune your guitar this is NOT the product for you.

Cons

Broke my string using this. I just want a light that goes green if I get it right. Tis just shows the note you play and gives no guidance on how to correct it. I tried for a LONG time to get an E2 but it just kept reporting other notes with no help.

Summary

Overly techy underly helpful.

"THIS IS NOT FREE"

March 23, 2011  |  By ZenFerret

 |  Version: AP Tuner 3.06

Pros

None. This app is mislabeled and crashes under anything above Windows 95.

Cons

There is no trail. THIS APP COSTS $35. Also, it will not run under Windows 7 or Vista.
