We're glad you asked! We tested extensively with electric bassists, classical bassists and cellists, and we perfected our tuning engine to detect low frequencies very reliably. More reliably in fact than any app they had used.
Low C extension on a double Bass? 6 string Electric? C string on a Cello?
All a breeze to tune with VITALtuner.
VITALtuner is better at tuning guitars for a few reasons:
We have degrees in Music, and spent extensive efforts in researching and gathering our list of Temperaments. We additionally consulted with professional Early Music performers and professors with expertise in the field.
Also, we have included a display with graphs within VITALtuner with all of our Temperament offsets for you to inspect. This way you can tell what VITALtuner is doing for any Temperaments you wish to check out.
Oh, and you can hear for yourself what Temperaments sound like!
VITALtuner's 'Reference Pitches' is a highly accurate tone generator that produces pitch frequencies that take into account A4 Calibration as well as Temperament settings. Notes are displayed in a familiar keyboard style arrangement of buttons, and 4 waveforms are available.
We have extensive experience not only playing music professionally, but also teaching. Additionally, we consulted Music teachers with students of all ages, as well as University faculty specializing in teaching new students.
After extensive designing, we are proud to bring you VITALtuner's Easy Mode!
You get the best of both worlds: the best tuning engine out there, combined with a custom interface for students new to their instruments.
Easy Mode features:
Definitely not! We designed VITALtuner just as much for wind instruments.
