IK Multimedia releases UltraTuner for Android

IK Multimedia

IK Multimedia has announced the release of UltraTuner for Android. Already available for iOS, it brings ultra-precise instrument tuning to the Android platform. It works with the built-in mic input for acoustic instruments, and can also be used with all audio interfaces for Android, like IK's new iRig 2 and iRig HD-A.

Ultra precise
UltraTuner for Android features a patented advanced and very fast note detection engine that utilizes a proprietary dual-analysis process to deliver frequency readings with accuracy down to +/- 1/100 of a cent, which is 10 times more accurate than conventional mechanical strobe tuners, making it ideal for precision tuning and calibration of all instruments from electric guitars to analog synthesizers and beyond.

Ultra visible
With an easy-to use interface, UltraTuner offers two convenient modes of operation that let musicians choose the level of tuning complexity displayed.

In Stage Mode, UltraTuner provides a highly visible full-screen display that's easy to view from a distance in both low light and bright light environments. In Studio Mode, UltraTuner reveals the nitty gritty note information, allowing users to monitor note and pitch accuracy over time, with visualization settings that offer detailed information on frequency, cents and note octave. It takes full advantage of UltraTuner's engine by offering real-time tracking of detailed information like subtle pitch changes in sustained notes and the shape and frequency of vibrato.

Ultra calibration
Beyond its tuning capabilities, UltraTuner also has a few more handy tricks up its sleeve. Its settings menu lets musicians quickly and easily calibrate the "A" note to any custom value (between 430 to 530Hz), to ensure proper tuning when playing with others. It also has a setting feature that lets users change the temperament type to Equal, Pythagorean, Just Major, ΒΌ Comma Mean Tone and more. A transposition option also lets users shift the root note up or down by 6 half steps.

Pricing and availability
UltraTuner for Android is available for devices with Android 4.1 or later. It is now available for purchase on the Google Play store for $4.99.
