This handy application provides pitch references for musicians and singers.
It's a chromatic pitch pipe, ideal for a cappella singers and timpanists. With thirteen pitches, each a half step above the previous, Pitch Pipe provides all of the notes of a single octave, so a singer can start in any key required by Western music. To use, play the initial key note or tonic of the piece to be sung. You can also play the first sung note of the song, particularly when the song begins in unison or with a solo.
Having a Pitch Pipe in your iPhone is useful because you always have it with you. Normal pitch pipes can gradually change pitch as the material hardens with use; and since they are often carried in a pocket, lint can work its way into the device and affect the sound. Pitch Pipe for iPhone has none of these problems.
You play a pitch by tapping the letter of the note itself, which functions as a button. This app uses real pitch pipe samples, recorded from a pitch pipe.
