I seem to have trouble tuning with this app lately. Playing my Scheerhorn and not plugging my iphone in it seems to have a hard time giving me accurate tuning. I have tried the noise filter and turning the boost on and off. Anyone else using this app with their reso and having a better experience? I also own the Peterson clipon but like to use the Iphone sometimes. Thanks for any advice.
I hope I'm not alone on this.....further, I hope someone has found the solution. I have a number of clip-on tuners, but mainly I've used the Korg AW-2, and once I got the Peterson Strobo Clip, that one pretty much exclusively. When I don't have a capo on, no problem. I've learned that a softer touch is better. Side of my thumb, pinky, best of all, no picks. Also, I always mute the "sister" string. If I'm tuning my low G, I mute the high G to avoid sympathetic resonance (or whatever it's called!). Here's the problem..... When I put my capo on, the needle flip-flops like an election year politician! I typically use a Bradley and occasionally a Walworth. I suspect this is due to the fact that the capo is "floating". Maybe this would not be so pronounced with a Shubb or Gross capo. I don't know. I also have similar problems with my Sonic Research Turbo Tune pedal.read more »
If you guys haven't tried one of these tuners yet, you need to. I LOVE mine. two different tuning presets for dobro.
I just put the Peterson Tuner app on my iPhone 4 and it is slick. No "sweeteners" but slick just the same. Peterson has just marketed a jack for electric instruments, too. Ain't technology grand, endless ways to spend, spend, spend. I really needed that app to go with the Strobo-Flip, Strobo-Clip and the Strobo-Soft read more »
