"My most indispensable app is my guitar tuner, Cleartune. None of the old visual or analog tuners are as precise. I've even taken it on stage with me!" - Rosanne Cash "Cleartune and Clockwork are my most used apps." - Ezra Oklan (Nicole Atkins, Norah Jones, Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra, Matt Beck (Matchbox 20), Chico Hamilton, Arnie Lawrence) "I've been having trouble with interference on stage with other tuners for the iPhone. Used Cleartune last night before a gig and had no problems with stage noise. Excellent tuner for bass." - Rob Calder (Kanye West, Angus and Julia Stone, The Break and Repair Method, Ghostface Killah) Used in the making of the new Gorillaz album "The Fall" Follow us on Facebook at ----------------------------------- ✭ Featured in Electronic Musician, Matchbox Mag, Making Music Mag, Premiere Guitar, MacWorld, Apple Staff Picks, Worship Leader Mag, Acoustic Guitar ✭ Spotted in use backstage by The Black Keys, C.W. Stone King (, Grammy Nominee Sones de México ( ----------------------------------- Cleartune is a chromatic instrument tuner and pitch pipe that allows you to quickly and accurately tune your instrument using the built-in mic in your iPhone or using an external mic on your 2nd or 3rd generation iPod Touch. Cleartune features a unique "note wheel" interface allowing you to quickly find your pitch, paired with a highly responsive fine-tuning meter for the perfect tune. With support for custom temperaments, transposition, notations such as solfège, adjustable calibration and more, Cleartune packs more power than most pro tuners, yet is simple enough for everyone to use. Cleartune can tune acoustic or electric guitar, bass, bowed strings, woodwinds, brass, piano, tympani, tablas and any other instrument that can sustain a tone. Most electronic tuners cannot properly tune a violin. With a built in temperament for violin family instruments, Cleartune will have the 5ths singing perfectly. Features: - Note Wheel Display - Ultra responsive 25 cent range fine tuning display - Needle Damping option - Accuracy ±0.01 semitone (±1 cent) - Selectable Temperaments - Selectable Notations (such as Solfège) - User-defined temperament and notations - Support for transposing instruments - Automatic reference note calibration - Adjustable A4 calibration in 0.1 Hz increment - Pitch Pipe/Tone generator - Selectable tone waveform - Automatic or manual note selection Note: iPod Touch 3G (2009-2010) requires a compatible external microphone



  • Updates?

    By Fuzzylongbeard
    Both this and very sadly Stagepass are not updated anymore for compabillity anymore. This app made me buy an Iphone. Now I have to keep a couple of phones from updating to new ios! Stagepass has been taken off the app store. This is a serious loss! Please save the Stagepass app. It is totally unique and there is nothing like it. The effort is also like no other app out there. Again I am saving a couple of phones just for these 2 apps please don't loose them. Update them! I will pay for the update!! Stagepass is a gem!!

  • Best tuner available until support died

    By Westsailor
    This was bar none THE best chromatic tuner under iOS. With iOS 7 the needle started 'flicking' back and forth. The developer (bitcount) said it was due to Apple changing how iOS handled audio and they were 'on it until they got it figured out'. That was 2015. No updates to fix problem since. I guess they gave up. Its a real shame. I've given up on them as well and moed to Plusadd Tuner PTU2 which is almost as good as Cleartune WAS
  • Will this app be updated?

    By spinzero
    Fine app, needs update for new iOS and devices
  • Need to update

    By Techacan
    I love this app and have used it for 3 years now with my bass. Please update it so it will work with iOS 11 when it comes out. I need this in the future.
  • Farewell Old Friend

    By JT Kuntz
    I have used this app daily as a performing musician and music educator for 7 years, and it has always been my first recommendation for all of my students. Unfortunately, I cannot find any indication that the developers will continue to support their product. I would pay for the updated version that will support my devices into the future, but I'm already looking for my new standard iOS tuner.
  • Waiting for 64 bit version

    By --gc
    This app works fine but it's not long for this world as it now triggers a "this app won't work in the future" warning on iOS 10. I've contacted the developer a few times about updating it with no response. So I'd say give this app a pass.
  • Improve a app for support a new device
