Good Stuff about this app: Cleartune is my absolute favorite tuner! I have 3 different ones on my iPad. The dial on it doesn’t go wiggling out of control like some of the other ones I have. It apparently has a really strong input for sound because it can hear you even if there is some other noise in the room. Funny thing I noticed at my last studio recital- my accompanist was using her iPhone on the piano as the students lined up to tune. COOL.
I really like that there are options on this app for changing the notation. You can move from English to fixed or moveable Do Solfege. There is also a setting for Northern European (-es) or (-is). Apparently the French have a different Solfege as well? It’s on there too!
The developers of this tuner have apparently thought of everything. I don’t even know what some of the settings are… but I don’t need them. It works really, really well.
Our Wish List: Well,…. I’m at a loss here. It’s a tuner, and it’s awesome.
My Love: This tuner is so good (and inexpensive) that I had all of the parents and teen students in my studio (with iPhones) download this tuner. No one even hesitated. It’s an incredible value and so handy!
Summary: All-in-all we think Cleartune is FABULOUS. Every musician should have their musical tools in their pocket ready to be used at all times. Just my little ol’ opinion.
