Fellow TuneLab users...

FYI, there is an update for TuneLab. Just saw it this morning in the updates on my iPhone. It says the following things have been upgraded...

Resuming after phone call interruptions in iOS 6 is more robust, avoiding "Audio System Error" hangups.

Ability to rename and/or move tuning files has been added.

Over-pull pre-measuring can be paused and reviewed from main tuning screen.

Average of pre-measusrements is displayed in "Edit Pre-measurements."

Inharmonicity measuring is more sensitive and finds and uses more partials

Thank you Robert Scott for continuing to make TuneLab such a GREAT and affordable program!!!

So far the new IH model is only in the mobile versions, but it is coming soon in the PC version too.

I am still on windows mobile 6.1, cheap samsung phone, dedicated to the task. Not activated as a phone.

I do own an iPhone, but am not really interested using it as an ETD. Another iPod or iPad, dedicated to the task I would consider.

Are these updates worthwhile, and most important if so, which platform would you choose? Android, Windows or Apple.

If it means purchasing the software over again, I would not mind that too much, tunelab has served me well.

I just want to get the better platform. And I am in no rush, I still have my HP pda as back-up, and my ears as well.

Maybe Mr. Scott could answer this question, with as much diplomacy as possible.



Thanks and regards to all.

It is all a matter if personal preference.

There is a discount when moving from Windows Mobile to Android, but no discount when moving to or from iPhone because that is all handled by Apple.

And Scott, the Android version already has most of the features of the iPhone version, except for the more sensitive inharmonicity measurement. And that will be coming in the next update, but I'm not sure when that will be.

I'm in the same boat, just switching from longtime use of the Windows version on my old phone to the iPhone version. Mostly, I just hate using my old Omnia with WinMo 6.1, but as a former engineer, I don't like having a single point of failure, so I'm also thinking about getting a separate old iPod (or new iPad) to tune with.

The iOS version is a distinct improvement. The biggest feature I use is over-pull. Being able to quickly measure a C major arpeggio across the whole piano is great, because I always measure starting pitch anyway. In this latest version, you can pause during the measurements and go back if you got out of sync and played G3 while it was waiting for E3 (just swipe on the screen; see the help). The pre-measurement also means I can tune out of sequence: I'm not limited to A0 to C8. Also, I used instant measuring before, so I had to be careful to switch to the right note to get a good reading. Now, if I'm in the top octave, and I'm playing G6 and it's not switching up from F#6, I can just keep bringing the pitch up (using the upper green line as a marker) until it does switch. I used to pitch raise with "Auto Up", so as not to mess up a measurement. I can stay in "Auto Both" now. The average offset on each bridge is great, and something I write on the invoice for the customer. They usually want to know "How bad was it?".

The balance of features between the two versions is starting to tip over to the new version, and I'm sure will accelerate now that it's up and stable. As an aural tuner, I miss seeing my red custom offsets in the tuning curve as stakes in the ground that I can tweak to. I work around that by writing them down (usually just A0, A1, and A2) and using the (>) button to see what the values are while I manually tweak the curve.

By the way, you can back up your tuning files to your computer in iTunes. With your device connected and selected, on the Apps page at the bottom is the File Sharing section. Select TuneLab and you'll get a list of its files. At bottom right you can use the "Add..." button to move files from your computer to the device, or "Save to..." to go in the other direction.

It's great software that just keeps getting better. I pitch raise on almost every single tuning I do, and I wouldn't have what's left of my sanity if I had to do it aurally each time.

Thanks for that Mr. Shuster. It certainly looks like I should look into the iOS version.

Jean, I'm going to give a little pitch for the Android version or maybe it's against the iPhone version. Apple likes to control everything so if you like dealing with them then there's no problem. I really like Robert Scott and he's great to deal with. As you can see here he's very responsive and answers all your questions, but then you already knew that smile

I've used the pocket pc version for quite a few years now and I think the Android version is a big improvement. By the way, as far as I'm aware TuneLab is the only tuning software available for Android. Way to go Robert! thumb
