Does anyone know of a good iPhone app for tuning the violin? I don't have a good enough pitch to tune with the Violin Tuner on this site, so I've been using the app n-Track Tuner since day one. However, the other day I got my piano tuned (I have my piano in my new flat now after decades of it living at my parents' place!) and the bloke who did it had a proper tuner. So I compared the readings on his and mine and found that the app claims the notes to be between 5 and 10 hZ too low! So that's bad for everything, but especially for our projects!
I could buy a proper tuner myself, I suppose, but money's a bit tight and I thought there might be a better alternative for my phone. Grateful for any suggestions!
~ Once you've ruled out the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be true. ~
Just to mention there is a free app called "lingot" which works quite well. Don't know if they have a version for iPhone or Android.
For portable tuning I use a Snark clip on tuner. Since it clips on and picks up the vibrations from my instrument it makes it easy to tune in a noisy environment, like in a crowded orchestra room where everyone else is practicing, tuning up, etc. It's also quite inexpensive yet very accurate.
