The current version is 1.6.1 and works well on
8.0 and high ios versions.
New in version 1.6.1:
- Added manual language selection option in preferences
- Improved selection of tempo change +/- control when held down, including restoring option for original behavior
- Various bug fixes and updates
From previous version 1.6:
- Added new Note Staff view on analysis page for viewing your tuning in a standard music notation format
- Improved immediate history scroll back on Analysis waveform plot, can now see previous 60 seconds of audio when freezing and play it back (with loop points). Can pinch to zoom, or set the playhead by tapping/dragging near top of plot. This also works when playing back previously recorded audio files.
- Added support for remote control via AirTurn pedals and bluetooth (qwerty) keyboards, as well as MIDI controllers sending CC or PC events. See the new options in the Prefs.
- Added German, French, Spanish, Chinese translations (along with updated Japanese)

- Added options in Prefs to show Smiley and Thinking faces
- New accelerando/ritardando support in metronome presets. See the revised tempo section in the preset editor. New modes for tempo include No Change, Fixed, Gradual (which lets you set start and end tempo), and Relative (which adjusts it +/- a specific BPM from previous).
- Added additional preset sequencing option "Single". The toggle button for sequencing the met is now 3-way. Off, Sequence All, and Sequence Single. The new mode stays on the current preset but executes the bar count and any tempo changes, then if looping is off it will stop, or if looping is on it will repeat, including any tempo changes.
- Now has ability to set a preset start and end for sequencing over (instead of just the whole list), long press on a preset button (when in sequence mode) for options.
- Added preset number and measure number to metronome preset lists, to ease creating sequences or set lists
- Tapping on metronome "list" button on main met page now brings up the preset groups list on iPhone. Long-pressing it brings up the current group (what it used to do when pressed normally).

- Added combine preset groups feature when in Select mode, to create new groups from multiple existing ones.
- Layout changes in main metronome page (and pulldown) to make it much easier to use one-handed on iPhone.
- New popup slider/wheel controls for metronome tempo by holding down +/- tempo buttons. Defaults to slider, try the wheel by switching an option in the metronome prefs.
- Fixed issue where metronome was silent using some bluetooth speakers.
- Fixed visual metronome with /1 meters

Yay, This game is so cool
very versatile... tuner, metronome... would be 5 stars if the tuner and metronome actually played the sounds from the iwatch as well
This actually helps me with band
This app exceeded my hopes, it's amazing. The realtime visual wave form teaches how the notes look in your ear and show what's going on with the sound and why it's actually impossible for a guitar string to be adjusted to 1/10 of 1 cent as Peterson is selling. I got a Peterson StroboTuner for Christmas $129 on Amazon and sent it back. This app is better. It deserves a user forum. I am using the Peterson Pitch Grabber, with this app. That's a clip on contact mic. When it's plugged in it doesn't cause the audio microphone in my phone to stop working. That's terrible because it picks up all the audible interference. I'm using the app on my Apple 5S which is updated regularly. Help with this issue would be appreciated. A remark to mtnhorn on his over sensitivity issue. There's a little box that appears when you're in the waveform mode that reads, "time" this seems to be a sampling rate. Over a long span a musical tone generated from its instrument has an excursion that produces a range of frequency throughout its "life". If you are sampling a long time then you'll see the range of frequencies. The only possible tone that can produce what you're looking to see is a pure tone from an electronic tone generator, other than that you would see what you're seeing. But if you can find that time box, touch and hold while you then slide your finger down. You will increase the rate at which the tone is evaluated. Then adjust the kind of report you need which is the "wide," "fine," whatever. Be sure to adjust the input filter which is the "voice," "strings," or "wind." Each kind of input has its own issues. I mean, imagine the human voice being rejected as an inaccurate musical input because it doesn't produce a clean, pure, DEAD tone like a tone oscillator. But by precise filtering the human voice is observable. In the "time" box you'll see that you can set the time sample rate as fast 2/100 of a second. Now watch the report of the note; nice. A note to classical guitar players. Classical strings need patience to live with. You can’t just tune these like steel strings. With this tuner you can see that you have tuned the open string ok but as you play each note along range string that some are ok, some flat or sharp. Depending on what key I’m in I can adjust to bring in the notes that I can have the tone and the intonation too. I use the wave form screen the most. Classical guitars strings from brand or model vary a lot. Segovia noted he tuned for the key he was in lest his 3rds and 10ths were sour. Yes that is true, but I wonder if he ever got to analyze the intonation of the notes on a precise instrument like TE Tuner. I paid $4.00 and TE Tuner is better than anything Peterson offers in guitar tuners. Contact me on twitter if u like. In [email protected]_lmnop. I've had TE Tuner for a year now. It's still the best of the best. The app manager contacted me as soon as I posted my problem with the Peterson Pitch Grabber. The fault was that I wasn't pushing the jack far enough. 🙄
If you’re a musician who wants to improve or just a casual user, this has everything you might want whether you are a string player, vocalist, or wind instrumentalist. There are several different tuning presentations (pitch wheel, keyboard, et al) which can be tailored to your particular instrument and the degree of accuracy you are able to achieve. The metronome section gives you everything you could want including count off for groups. You can also set up groups of different time signatures. For example, let’s say you have a section to practice in 3/4 time, then a bar of 3/8, then it goes to 2/4 time where the eighth note is constant throughout. You can make up a group like that and follow your music to get the correct feeling of that segment. You can also see for yourself what your sound looks or how well you’re following the pitch in the spectral analytics section. You can view on a staff, or see the overtones (great for the vocalist who wants to develop that professional quality voice), or overall spectrum. You can see your attack and sustain. You can record audio and, if you want, video of your playing to match with the analysis so you can help find what might be causing a problem (embouchure, fingering, bowing etc). In short this set of tools can help you from a rank beginner to a professional musician for an absurdly low sum of under four dollars giving you a set of tools that would have cost tens of thousands of dollars a few years ago (and even then some things weren’t available).
As a performer I play in amateur, collegiate and professional ensembles and playing in tune is a must. When practicing Tonal Energy puts all the tools I need into one app. Its wide array of different settings, available tools, and user-friendly interface allow for easy use and greatly improved playing without the cost or hassle of using a standard metronome or tuner.
I believe I found a bug when trying to play certain notes back to back on the sound section wheel. The octaves keep going up for no apparent reason.
It’s the best tunning app until I opened it a few days after install and the mic didn’t work I did what it said even deleted and re install but it won’t work
It is the best app in its field.
My students love to check tuning and intonation.
Great app. Having drones of real instruments and metronome on at the same time is fantastic! Must have app for serious musicians.
I love this app. I use it with my students to help them pitch their notes, and I use it in my own practice studio. It's really versatile. I have recommended to all my students.
App gives you som much just for so little.
I really like this for helping me play the flute. I wish it didn’t pick up anything else in the room and only hear the instrument that is trying to be tuned. Overall I enjoy this app very much and if you are one of those people who play and instrument you should defiantly get this app.
The app is a good investment for anyone needing a tuner and metronome. My only complaint is with the lack of explanation of the features by the designers. Even if you go to their website, directions are not user friendly.
I’ve tried a lot of tuners over the years and this one is by far the best. One of its many advantages is the resolution setting. I have my students tune the open strings at the fine or extra fine setting and then play scales starting with the wide setting and working their way up to finer settings over time.
Super amazing only goods things get this app worth the money
I’ve used this app through out 7 years of band at school. Nough said.
Love the analysis feature. Sometimes I like to just use the volume measurement to practice forte piano and the tuner is great. Love this super accurate and customizable tuner. Overall TE tuner is a hit!😉
I love this app a lot the tuning is amazing for it and I use it almost every day whenever I am practicing. The only thing that is annoying me is whenever I’m playing the metronome change speeds...I was playing at 80 and it went up to 120 and then down to 60(does this very often). I don’t know why it’s doing this or if it’s my fault but I love this app and that might be my wanting to change
