Luna Tuna - Guitar Tuner for iOS
LunaTuna is a simple but powerful chromatic guitar tuner for iOS. It should also work on macs with M1 chips, but untested at the moment.
It recognizes the frequency of played notes and tells you if you need to tune higher or lower.
The name LunaTuna was chosen because the white dot looks like the moon.
You can change the base frequency of 440 Hz for those rare occasions or to drive your bandmates crazy.
Here are some tips for using the app:
- tuning should happen in a silent environment, as noise gives the algorithms a hard time
- if you are tuning low output instruments like unplugged electric guitars, move the microphone close to the strings, especially for the low notes
- if you are using an iPad, note that the mic is not at the bottom like with an iPhone, but at the top (at least for the model that I tested with)
- try to pick in a way that gives you a sustaining tone without detuning the string from too strong picking
