"Better to buy a tuner at the music store"

June 27, 2009  |  By squeezix

 |  Version: Chromatia Tuner 3.4

Pros

Installed and ran properly right away, it's able to both generate and receive tuning notes, it comes with a nice display and with some program options.

Cons

Up on normal notes (with input using just from my laptop microphone), the meter-needle tends skip around all over the place. even when the "don't jump around" settings are turned up all the way. It doesn't work at all with low notes (ie., my tuba.)

Summary

For the same price or less, you can get a much more portable and well-behaved physical tuning meter down at your local music store.

(If the product were $6 or $8 instead of $20, I'd give it a much higher rating.)

"I'd have to say this is the most competent I've seen"

May 28, 2009  |  By Mr_Pseudonym

 |  Version: Chromatia Tuner 3.4

Pros

You can't sing or play a horn and watch a pocket-size tuner. They're dark and tiny and miserable............The full screen mode on Chromatia is insane. Unique and extremely visible.

Cons

With a shaky voice you have to turn the needle filter all the way up, but it does reach a usable level. There oughta be a volume compressor though, because it has perfectly understandable trouble hanging on to said skaky voice.

Summary

Best that I am aware of. Far and away the best for voice training and horn pitch training because of the BIG screen.

"Bueno, very good, Bravo!"

January 28, 2009

 |  Version: Chromatia Tuner 3.4

Pros

Very accurate. Displays the tuning accuracy and the frequency. Excellant for the begining guitarist so you know which E you are tuning to, bass or standard etc.

Cons

10 minute time out on the un paid for version. Still plenty of time to get in tune though.

Summary

Great piece of software. Well worth the price I think.

What's new in version 2.5
  • Added a ‘low frequency cut-off’ option that tells the program to ignore everything below a given frequency (e.g. if you have a problem with a large 50 Hz hiss, then set this to 60 Hz or so).
  • Improved precision of internal calculations - for even more stable frequency determination.
  • The ‘needle’ now changes color from red to green near 0 cents.
  • Added (optional) MIDI input support: Play a note on a MIDI input device to select the note to tune in ‘manual mode’. You can also use MIDI program change to select temperament.
  • Added (optional) MIDI output support: Play the selected note (in ‘manual mode’) or the detected note (if any, in ‘auto mode’) on a MIDI output. This includes an option to use MIDI pitch bend to emulate non-equal tempered scales on an equal tempered synthesizer.
  • You can now right click on the tuning display, or on the spectrum display, and get a pop-up menu with the single command ‘Copy’ (to the clipboard).
  • The spectrum display now shows the exact determined fundamental frequency (instead of the note name) in text near its frequency peak.
