CUSTOM SETTINGS

Custom settings include microphone sensitivity, help text (You Are Flat / You Are Sharp, etc.), adjust the “in tune” range, and a choice of 20 fun emojis that appear when you are in tune (more than just a smiley face).

 

Help

HELP TEXT

Help text gives feedback to students who may not know how to adjust their instrument.  This text may be changed or deleted in the Settings Menu.  The right side lights up if you are sharp, and the left side lights up if you are flat.  You may choose to display:

You Are Flat / You Are Sharp

Push In / Pull Out

Tighten String / Loosen String

 

Glasses

EASY TO READ

Needle is very accurate and easy to read at any distance.

TRANSPOSED FOR YOUR INSTRUMENT

Select your instrument from the top-down menu, then use the arrow buttons to select the written note for the pitch you want to hear.

 

Volume

JUST PRESS PLAY

Hear the pitch, transposed for the instrument you selected.  For example, if you select French Horn and select the note C, then you will hear an F.

FOR BEST RESULTS…

Use earbuds or an external speaker for best results.  Your device’s tiny speaker may not get very loud, or may not project extreme pitches very well.

 

 

 

 

Simple Pitch Generator Mode

 

Sometimes you just need a tuning note.  You need it fast, and you don’t want to deal with instrument selection or transposition.  Bandmate Pro can do that, too.  You may change to Simple Pitch Generator mode in the Settings Menu.

Arrow: Slight curve

QUICK INTERFACE

Tap the clef that you want to use, then use the arrow buttons to select the note you want to hear.  It’s that easy.

About Bandmate Chromatic Tuner PRO

 

Bandmate is technology that makes music education easier by giving personal feedback to students while they are learning.

 

After designing the original Bandmate Chromatic Tuner for my students, I wanted a version for myself.  I wanted one app that would do everything I need, either in the classroom or on stage, and would replace my plastic store-bought tuners.

 

Once we got into developing it, we found ways to improve the tuner and make the tuning experience more efficient.  With the Traditional Tuner, I can tune my whole middle school band in about three minutes without having to say a word.  The app tells them what to do, they don’t need my help.  That’s been a game-changer.

 

I do not recommend Bandmate Chromatic Tuner Pro for beginners, especially for classroom use.  There are too many distractions, too many buttons to play with, and too many custom settings that may do more harm than good in the hands of a beginner.  That is the reason why the original Bandmate Tuner does not have a settings menu or custom options: it is designed specifically to not be a distraction from your instruction and to not cause time-wasting problems.

 

Proceeds from purchases of Bandmate Chromatic Tuner Pro go to the developers, and to pay the fees for keeping these apps available on the app stores.

 

I hope Bandmate helps your students as much as it has helped mine.

 

Justin Dickson, Band Director, G.C. Hawley Middle School, Creedmoor, NC.

Bandmate Chromatic Tuner is free, and always will be, so that all your students can get it.  But maintaining it, keeping it on the App Store, etc. costs money.  If you love Bandmate and would like to “pay what you want for it”, just use this Paypal link.  Thank you so much for your support!
