Audio Tuner in action

Keep just about any musical instrument in pitch perfect tune wherever you are with your BlackBerry. Audio Tuner can tune your guitar, ukulele, violin, piano, bass guitar, banjo, mandolin, cello and autoharp.

Audio Tuner supports two tuning methods:

  • Spectrum Analysis - play your musical instrument into the microphone and get feedback as to whether it's flat or sharp.
  • Tone Generator - in the style of the pitch pipe, listen to the correct note and tune your instrument until it matches the sound.
