For musicians from pros to beginners, whether you sing, play a brass, woodwind or stringed instrument or any type of guitar, this app provides a set of feature-rich practice tools that gives fun and rewarding feedback. It’s much more than just a tuner! So what makes the TonalEnergy the best selling music practice app? • It's an all-in-one app, with a state-of-the-art tuner, an advanced metronome, dedicated orchestral strings and guitar tuning page, a piano keyboard, sound analysis pages, and audio/visual recording capabilities. • It’s easy to use. Options like the Target Tuner or Pitch Tracker are on all the main pages. TonalEnergy helps users create rewarding and attainable goals during a rehearsal or when working alone. Colorful analysis data pages and audio/video recording features enhance the experience of practice. • The metronome is cutting edge. It offers unmatched flexibility in sound choices, tempo settings, meters, subdivision patterns and visual displays. Voice count-ins, the ability to create and edit preset groups and Ableton link for syncing multiple devices make this a superior tool for performers. • Ear training possibilities are endless. The high quality multi-sampled instrument sounds for symphonic instruments are unique among all other tuning applications. Listening skills can be developed through the use of the eight-octave keyboard, chromatic wheel and tone generator. There are no other sounds like these. • Learning is a social activity. Using features unique to the TonalEnergy Tuner, data can be collected, reviewed, edited and shared with others. Feedback is essential for growing and developing great performers. It’s all about connectivity. Chris Coletti, member of The Canadian Brass, sums up TonalEnergy by saying, “TonalEnergy is a must-have for any serious musician. It's a full suite of tools in one app; the tuner, tone generator, recorder, metronome and beautiful interface make it one of the best tools for musicians out there, period.” FEATURES • Recognizes a large pitch range, extending to lower registers than many competing tuners (C0 - C8) that is highly responsive to wind instruments, as well as acoustic and electric string instruments • Adjustable A=440 Hz reference • Automatic or manual transposing options • Instantly changes between equal, just and other custom temperaments, including user-defined ones • Auto or instant pitch reference note feature using the TonalEnergy sounds • Extensive tuning list for all orchestral string and fretted string instruments including many more features than most other string-only tuner apps • An expandable eight octave piano keyboard enhancing many of the key aspects of the tuner’s functions • Chromatic wheel tone generator, with optional auto-vibrato feature • Frequency and Harmonic energy overtone graphs, along with a multi-function waveform • Dedicated metronome page that matches or exceeds the features available on all other stand alone metronome apps • Notation options including standard English, Solfege, Northern European, and Indian variants • Bluetooth and input/output support • Audio and Video recording capabilities including, editing, looping, timestretch that are all exportable via iTunes sharing, AirDrop, email, AudioCopy, SoundCloud, etc • Import music from iTunes Library or email attachments • Compatible with external microphones and clip-on vibration sensor devices • Supports external video output to an external display for use in rehearsal halls • External MIDI keyboard control support • Universal app with all device orientations supported • Audiobus and inter-app audio support • VoiceOver support for the blind or visually impaired INSTRUMENTS • Piccolo, Flute • Oboe, English Horn, Bassoon • Eb, Bb/A Clarinet, Bass Clarinet • Soprano, Alto, Tenor, and Baritone Saxophone • Trumpet • French Horn • Tenor and Bass Trombone • Euphonium and Tuba • Square, sawtooth, and sine waveforms • Organ • Plucked Strings

  • Great App, Amazing

    By H.V.Information
    This app exceeded my hopes, it's amazing. The realtime visual wave form teaches how the notes look in your ear and show what's going on with the sound and why it's actually impossible for a guitar string to be adjusted to 1/10 of 1 cent as Peterson is selling. I got a Peterson StroboTuner for Christmas $129 on Amazon and sent it back. This app is better. It deserves a user forum. I am using the Peterson Pitch Grabber, with this app. That's a clip on contact mic. When it's plugged in it doesn't cause the audio microphone in my phone to stop working. That's terrible because it picks up all the audible interference. I'm using the app on my Apple 5S which is updated regularly. Help with this issue would be appreciated. A remark to mtnhorn on his over sensitivity issue. There's a little box that appears when you're in the waveform mode that reads, "time" this seems to be a sampling rate. Over a long span a musical tone generated from its instrument has an excursion that produces a range of frequency throughout its "life". If you are sampling a long time then you'll see the range of frequencies. The only possible tone that can produce what you're looking to see is a pure tone from an electronic tone generator, other than that you would see what you're seeing. But if you can find that time box, touch and hold while you then slide your finger down. You will increase the rate at which the tone is evaluated. Then adjust the kind of report you need which is the "wide," "fine," whatever. Be sure to adjust the input filter which is the "voice," "strings," or "wind." Each kind of input has its own issues. I mean, imagine the human voice being rejected as an inaccurate musical input because it doesn't produce a clean, pure, DEAD tone like a tone oscillator. But by precise filtering the human voice is observable. In the "time" box you'll see that you can set the time sample rate as fast 2/100 of a second. Now watch the report of the note; nice. A note to classical guitar players. Classical strings need patience to live with. You can’t just tune these like steel strings. With this tuner you can see that you have tuned the open string ok but as you play each note along range string that some are ok, some flat or sharp. Depending on what key I’m in I can adjust to bring in the notes that I can have the tone and the intonation too. I use the wave form screen the most. Classical guitars strings from brand or model vary a lot. Segovia noted he tuned for the key he was in lest his 3rds and 10ths were sour. Yes that is true, but I wonder if he ever got to analyze the intonation of the notes on a precise instrument like TE Tuner. I paid $4.00 and TE Tuner is better than anything Peterson offers in guitar tuners. Contact me on twitter if u like. In Consideration@abc_lmnop. I've had TE Tuner for a year now. It's still the best of the best. The app manager contacted me as soon as I posted my problem with the Peterson Pitch Grabber. The fault was that I wasn't pushing the jack far enough. 🙄
  • A fantastic set of apps that would have cost 10’s of thousands a few years ago

    If you’re a musician who wants to improve or just a casual user, this has everything you might want whether you are a string player, vocalist, or wind instrumentalist. There are several different tuning presentations (pitch wheel, keyboard, et al) which can be tailored to your particular instrument and the degree of accuracy you are able to achieve. The metronome section gives you everything you could want including count off for groups. You can also set up groups of different time signatures. For example, let’s say you have a section to practice in 3/4 time, then a bar of 3/8, then it goes to 2/4 time where the eighth note is constant throughout. You can make up a group like that and follow your music to get the correct feeling of that segment. You can also see for yourself what your sound looks or how well you’re following the pitch in the spectral analytics section. You can view on a staff, or see the overtones (great for the vocalist who wants to develop that professional quality voice), or overall spectrum. You can see your attack and sustain. You can record audio and, if you want, video of your playing to match with the analysis so you can help find what might be causing a problem (embouchure, fingering, bowing etc). In short this set of tools can help you from a rank beginner to a professional musician for an absurdly low sum of under four dollars giving you a set of tools that would have cost tens of thousands of dollars a few years ago (and even then some things weren’t available).
  • Wonderful

    As a performer I play in amateur, collegiate and professional ensembles and playing in tune is a must. When practicing Tonal Energy puts all the tools I need into one app. Its wide array of different settings, available tools, and user-friendly interface allow for easy use and greatly improved playing without the cost or hassle of using a standard metronome or tuner.
  • Bug

    By fmoura
    I believe I found a bug when trying to play certain notes back to back on the sound section wheel. The octaves keep going up for no apparent reason.

    It’s the best tunning app until I opened it a few days after install and the mic didn’t work I did what it said even deleted and re install but it won’t work
