Tuner is a visual indicator for the state of tune of monophonic audio inputs. Tuner is perfect for use with guitars, brass and woodwind. Vocalists can get in-tune or use Tuner for pitch training. If you are looking for a real-time pitch correction plugin see Pitcher. If you are looking to post-correct recorded audio, see Newtone.

NOTE: Tuner will auto-detect the clarinet and self destruct. Clarinets are therefore considered dangerous and should be kept out of the studio. Preferably locked in lead box placed at the bottom of a mine-shaft. Filled with concrete.

  • Mode - Sensitivity to changes in pitch:
    • Fast - Reactivity control:
      • ON: The Tuner responds more quickly to changes in pitch. Best suited to synthesizers, sample sources and higher-pitched sounds like whistling, where you are trying to track instant changes or short snippets of sound. Detection range: F1 - C10.
      • OFF: Responds more slowly to changes in pitch. Best suited to guitar, woodwind, brass and vocals or unsteady live instruments. Detection range: F1 - E7.
    • Bass - Adds an octave to the lower detection range to improve accuracy below 40 Hz. This is achieved at the expense of doubling the detection time from around 50 to 100 ms.
  • Visual - Choose a pitch visualization:
    • Basic - Displays note name, octave, frequency and offset as a line beneath the detected pitch.
    • Dial - Displays note name, octave, frequency and offset indicated on a clock-face. Minor ticks are in Cents.
  • Reference - Note A at 440 Hz is the standard. Change perfect A to vary between 400 and 480 Hz reference.
