Precision strobe tuner
Description
Precision strobe tuner 1.72 A General Purpose Chromatic Musical instrument tuner App with special Temperament and Piano Tuning Functions. The PST combines a radial Spectrum Display with a classic strobe tuner and Note Dial for an ultimate visualization of pitch and tone. The Strobe Display is highly sensitive with response speed that is practically instantaneous and has long been the preferred tool for piano tuners and instrument technicians. The central Spectrum Display shows the input spectrum wrapped around the Display, with each Octave drawn in a separate color. The Note Dial is marked like a clock with the twelve notes of the Scale. All overtones of the input are shown as peaks in the Spectrum Display pointing towards their corresponding Notes. The Fundamental Indicator Tic on the Spectrum Display shows the Note of the Fundamental along the Note Dial, with the color designating the Octave. Use the Spectrum Display for coarse adjustment by tuning the Fundamental to the center of the desired Note Indicator. As the input approaches the desired Note, a Two Group pinwheel pattern becomes visible rotating in the Strobe Display. Fine tuning is accomplished by adjusting to stop rotation. The Strobe Display responds instantaneously to changes in pitch and is extremely sensitive. The outside Strobe Display works just like a classic rotating disk strobe tuner. The Two-Group pattern rotates CCW when the input is flat, and CW when sharp. When the rotation is stopped, the note is in tune. The previews show a general strobe display demonstration, an example of using the calibration function to measure the accuracy of a tuning fork and an example of guitar string tuning. The first screenshot shows the display tuning a Guitar Low E string. The Fundamental appears as an Orange peak in the Spectrum Display. This string rings bright, so the overtones are also dominant in the Display. The second screenshot shows the display for an E 440 Tuning Fork with the Calibration Dial enabled and adjusted. This Fork is 2.9 cent Flat. The PST also includes a Programmable Temperament Function with 5 user definable banks. The third screenshot shows an example of a Temperament Bank set up to a typical Piano Stretch Curve. This can also be used for tuning alternate temperaments, pedal steel guitar setups, or special guitar intonation systems. In addition, there are several Special Measurement Banks used for String Inharmonicity characterization and Piano Stretch Curve Estimation. Individual strings can be characterized by measuring the Fundamental and 2nd Harmonic separately. By careful selection of a few representative measurement points, a reasonable smooth fit Piano Stretch Curve can be generated. Any number of measurements can be used. The final screenshot shows the Input Signal Scope/Spectrum Display Page. The Detailed Operation Manual can be viewed here: www.precisionstrobe.com

It's a great comprehensive app for strobe tuner. I have professional piano tuning software, but this is still extremely useful in many circumstances.
Very Good App
by rcwaldhorn on 2020/06/27 15:36
I have been an aural tuner for over 30 years. But, as my ears aged, I needed help with the higher partials and about the two upper octaves on the piano. This app is very useful and is easy to use. I have also used the Android version with good results. Recommended. Robert C, Walshe
Excellent and Accurate Tuner!
by Much Irrated on 2020/06/23 19:52
I use this a lot, and it’s very convenient since it’s on my iPhone. It is always with me, not in my guitar case. I love the Accuracy and simplicity! No problem until writing this review. It is making me make up a nickname!
Perfect tuning app
by Red Feather Flutes on 2020/05/24 21:07
I constantly use this app to tune Native American Style flutes. A very big advantage is being able to see the harmonics of a note which shows me where slight adjustments need to be made. There are so many features available for very fine tuning. I would rate the calibration feature a “++” allowing for perfect environmental tuning. Hands down one of the best apps available for instrument making.
A ‘must have’ for piano!!

It is theoretically possible to indicate a pitch more accurately than an instrument can dial in or a string can make. This tuner makes us think that it provides that means and compels you to try, to play with the app like the cool toy it is. The bottom like though is how it all sounds when you're finished and how easy it is to use. It doesn't sound that good and endless fiddling required. I've checked out all my instruments learning what I can do and how to do it. I give this app 5 stars because it's fun to play with, not because it's a good functional tuner. I haven't tried a strobe tuner before so I have nothing to compare it to. The down side is it's not a practical option during a live performance. The fact that it uses the audio microphone is problematic. It's only useable in a quiet place. It rather needs a contact pickup able to clip on your instrument. According to the instructions there's a pickup that plugs into the charging port and you need that because the headphone/microphone jack feeds in through a band pass filter that ignores frequencies below 150 cycles which means the iPhone or iPad is designed to be deaf to bass notes. I haven't found a pickup configured with a plug which uses the charging port. The manual octave selector pops out of lock every time the note is tested. When it does, the band pass filter drops out and then the display is momentarily chaotic and you reset and try again; lots of playing around. I can't make the custom profile feature work, so maybe it doesn't. So, try this app, it's free to try.
Worth the price.

Great resource for student tuners
by Deathaya on 2016/12/18 05:09
From a student's perspective: I want something similar to "Cyber Tuner" in hand. This affordable app offers similar precision strobe display, which is valuable even just to train my hand technique. The temperament sounds quite fine; one could of course fine tune after the app. I like that the app is being updated often. It doesn't have presets for specific piano models, which shouldn't be a problem when a student is learning to tune by ear. I am very thankful for this app. It does use a lot battery, my iPhone 5s wouldn't survive a whole piano tuning without external power. The phone also heats up, might cause phone to shutdown if used for too long?
Smart Software

I have been tuning my piano for many years. I am self taught and have been able to do a so-so job. After using PST I found that my piano has that sweet sound that a professional tuner is able to achieve. PST is a first class piece of software, written by a signal processing expert who knows his stuff. I know; I worked in the field as a programmer for forty two years. It shows.
Very nice tuner!
by Test-7789 on 2016/06/05 00:33
I use this for my guitar and the kids use it for their violins. Now, I wouldn't use any thing else. Really nice.
Very Useful and easy to understand
by Ms_Edie on 2014/09/29 18:59
Used it to verify that the unisons in the upper register on my Baldwin SF-10 piano were off after a recent tuning. Also determined the stretch was suboptimal for my piano. When I finally get a tuning with the stretch I find most pleasing, I will use it again to set one of the custom temperaments to the values I like so we will have it for next time!
Great app for my piano tuning business...

I've been tuning for 20 years now, for the past 10 or so years I've used Tune Lab 97. I've resisted upgrading to the latest version because every time I had 300 bucks I had something better to do with it. I tried the light version of this app and knew I wanted to spend a measly five bucks for this app that replaces most of the features that the TuneLab program did. It is a tremendous app that is suited for fine tuning wind, organs and especially pianos. A technician with some experience can tune an instrument in about an hour. That way you can schedule another tuning in a day and make a little more cash. Now if you've never tuned your piano and think this will save you a visit from your piano tuner, think again. there's a lot more than just getting the strings in tune. Even with this app it will take you hours to get your piano sounding right, you'll be happier if you just pay your tech and sip a beverage while he works. Again great app... But if you are a piano tech wanting to put this on your iPad, be sure to get a good mic to go with it. The iPad has a problem with hearing the lowest and highest notes on the iPad...

Excellent app!
Wonderful
by Redbullluvr on 2013/06/27 19:14
I use this for organ tuning all the time. The resolution is wonderful and accuracy is dead on. A few things I would recommend to developers: One. The ability to reduce the input volume. Sometimes I have to back the tuner way far away from the pipes I am tuning in order for it to pick up. Two. More presets for temperaments, such as Kellner or some of the more well-known unequal temperaments. Three. The ability to enter in new temperaments by entering in the variation data instead of having to record the temperament in. Four. The ability to tune mutation stops without having to set manually the note on the dial. This could be achieved as a setting whereby you would enter in the mutation and the tuner would automatically put you on the right note on the keyboard instead of tracking to the note that mutation is closest to. All-around a great product and I will continue to recommend it to all my Organ colleagues.
Nice tuner

I started with the lite version but needed to be able to save the temperament for pedal steel guitar so I upgraded to the paid version. This version only allows saving of one user temperament and pedal steel guitar needs at least 2. One for E9 and one for C6 tuning. The developer was very helpful and a good communicator. The tuner works very well. He said he would be releasing a pro version that would allow multiple user temperaments.

I started with the lite version but needed to be able to save the temperament for pedal steel guitar so I upgraded to the paid version. This version only allows saving of one user temperament and pedal steel guitar needs at least 2. One for E9 and one for C6 tuning. The developer was very helpful and a good communicator. The tuner works very well. He said he would be releasing a pro version that would allow multiple user temperaments.

Excellent tuner, well worth the money.

This app allows me to precisely intonate my dulcimers even in a noisy music festival. Worth 100X it's price! I've used this guys hardware version of this app, and the app is every bit as good for luthier's use.
Really good tuner

Great resource for student tuners
by Deathaya on 2016/12/18 05:09
From a student's perspective: I want something similar to "Cyber Tuner" in hand. This affordable app offers similar precision strobe display, which is valuable even just to train my hand technique. The temperament sounds quite fine; one could of course fine tune after the app. I like that the app is being updated often. It doesn't have presets for specific piano models, which shouldn't be a problem when a student is learning to tune by ear. I am very thankful for this app. It does use a lot battery, my iPhone 5s wouldn't survive a whole piano tuning without external power. The phone also heats up, might cause phone to shutdown if used for too long?
Perfect tuning app
by Red Feather Flutes on 2020/05/24 21:07
I constantly use this app to tune Native American Style flutes. A very big advantage is being able to see the harmonics of a note which shows me where slight adjustments need to be made. There are so many features available for very fine tuning. I would rate the calibration feature a “++” allowing for perfect environmental tuning. Hands down one of the best apps available for instrument making.
Excellent and Accurate Tuner!
by Much Irrated on 2020/06/23 19:52
I use this a lot, and it’s very convenient since it’s on my iPhone. It is always with me, not in my guitar case. I love the Accuracy and simplicity! No problem until writing this review. It is making me make up a nickname!
Love this app
by Robin_Whitehouse on 2020/10/05 16:51
It's a great comprehensive app for strobe tuner. I have professional piano tuning software, but this is still extremely useful in many circumstances.
A ‘must have’ for piano!!

I can keep my grand in tune all year long! 🌞❄️
Fun but

It is theoretically possible to indicate a pitch more accurately than an instrument can dial in or a string can make. This tuner makes us think that it provides that means and compels you to try, to play with the app like the cool toy it is. The bottom like though is how it all sounds when you're finished and how easy it is to use. It doesn't sound that good and endless fiddling required. I've checked out all my instruments learning what I can do and how to do it. I give this app 5 stars because it's fun to play with, not because it's a good functional tuner. I haven't tried a strobe tuner before so I have nothing to compare it to. The down side is it's not a practical option during a live performance. The fact that it uses the audio microphone is problematic. It's only useable in a quiet place. It rather needs a contact pickup able to clip on your instrument. According to the instructions there's a pickup that plugs into the charging port and you need that because the headphone/microphone jack feeds in through a band pass filter that ignores frequencies below 150 cycles which means the iPhone or iPad is designed to be deaf to bass notes. I haven't found a pickup configured with a plug which uses the charging port. The manual octave selector pops out of lock every time the note is tested. When it does, the band pass filter drops out and then the display is momentarily chaotic and you reset and try again; lots of playing around. I can't make the custom profile feature work, so maybe it doesn't. So, try this app, it's free to try.
Great app for my piano tuning business...
by Maestro Mitch on 2014/09/05 20:19
I've been tuning for 20 years now, for the past 10 or so years I've used Tune Lab 97. I've resisted upgrading to the latest version because every time I had 300 bucks I had something better to do with it. I tried the light version of this app and knew I wanted to spend a measly five bucks for this app that replaces most of the features that the TuneLab program did. It is a tremendous app that is suited for fine tuning wind, organs and especially pianos. A technician with some experience can tune an instrument in about an hour. That way you can schedule another tuning in a day and make a little more cash. Now if you've never tuned your piano and think this will save you a visit from your piano tuner, think again. there's a lot more than just getting the strings in tune. Even with this app it will take you hours to get your piano sounding right, you'll be happier if you just pay your tech and sip a beverage while he works. Again great app... But if you are a piano tech wanting to put this on your iPad, be sure to get a good mic to go with it. The iPad has a problem with hearing the lowest and highest notes on the iPad...
Wonderful
by Redbullluvr on 2013/06/27 19:14
I use this for organ tuning all the time. The resolution is wonderful and accuracy is dead on. A few things I would recommend to developers: One. The ability to reduce the input volume. Sometimes I have to back the tuner way far away from the pipes I am tuning in order for it to pick up. Two. More presets for temperaments, such as Kellner or some of the more well-known unequal temperaments. Three. The ability to enter in new temperaments by entering in the variation data instead of having to record the temperament in. Four. The ability to tune mutation stops without having to set manually the note on the dial. This could be achieved as a setting whereby you would enter in the mutation and the tuner would automatically put you on the right note on the keyboard instead of tracking to the note that mutation is closest to. All-around a great product and I will continue to recommend it to all my Organ colleagues.

Smart Software
by The Parentals on 2016/09/07 02:58
I have been tuning my piano for many years. I am self taught and have been able to do a so-so job. After using PST I found that my piano has that sweet sound that a professional tuner is able to achieve. PST is a first class piece of software, written by a signal processing expert who knows his stuff. I know; I worked in the field as a programmer for forty two years. It shows.
Very Useful and easy to understand
by Ms_Edie on 2014/09/29 18:59
Used it to verify that the unisons in the upper register on my Baldwin SF-10 piano were off after a recent tuning. Also determined the stretch was suboptimal for my piano. When I finally get a tuning with the stretch I find most pleasing, I will use it again to set one of the custom temperaments to the values I like so we will have it for next time!

I use this for my guitar and the kids use it for their violins. Now, I wouldn't use any thing else. Really nice.

Very Good App
by rcwaldhorn on 2020/06/27 15:36
I have been an aural tuner for over 30 years. But, as my ears aged, I needed help with the higher partials and about the two upper octaves on the piano. This app is very useful and is easy to use. I have also used the Android version with good results. Recommended. Robert C, Walshe
