Description

Verituner is an advanced piano tuning app for use by professional piano technicians. This new app brings our leading Verituner product line to the best ever platform in its 15 year history. Piano technicians have said that Verituner technology has given them better sounding tunings than they ever thought possible with the fewest steps. Our patented multi-partial technology calculates your tuning to perfectly match each piano’s unique scaling. Automatic hands-off operation keeps you tuning quickly and eliminates tedious pre-tuning measurement steps. FEATURES • Aural Quality Tunings – create well-balanced tunings with the only tuning technology that tunes all the partials on all the notes. • Quick and Accurate Pitch Raises – get close quickly with overpull targets individually calculated from the starting pitch of each note. • Historical Temperaments – get access to over 90 of the best known historical temperaments, or easily key in your own custom temperaments. • Adjustable Stretch – precisely control octave widths with the built-in Styles, or create your own Custom Style to exactly match your aural tuning preferences. • Alternate Standard Pitch – tune to alternate pitches in a wide range of A=392 to A=466. • AutoNote – jump to any note and octave as you tune with automatic hands free tuning. • Saved Tunings - instantly recall prior tunings so you can tune quickly and consistently on frequently tuned pianos. HOW DOES VERITUNER WORK? Verituner measures the inharmonicity of every note while you are tuning, accumulating a detailed picture of the scaling of the entire piano. Then it calculates tuning targets for all the partials of all 88 notes to produce a well-balanced tuning custom fit to the piano. By tuning all the partials, the best possible compromise can be reached for every tuning interval, and the need for aural adjustments is substantially reduced. All of this is done completely automatically while you tune – without any extra steps required. CAN I TUNE MY OWN PIANO? The answer is yes! BUT… Piano tuning involved advanced skills and experience. A beginner will be challenged with correctly interpreting the moving tuning displays, and performing very fine tuning pin movements that a professional takes years to perfect. If you are an amateur, please contact us to understand what to expect before purchasing this app. QUESTIONS AND SUPPORT If you have any questions about the Verituner app or need any assistance whatsoever, please visit our website www.veritune.com and contact us by email or telephone. We are always happy to help!

    Let's be clear... tuning a piano is extremely difficult. Even with the best tools it requires extreme focus and patience. That being said, in my experience this is the best electric piano tuner out there. The forum is also an excellent resource. Email the developer if you have any issues and my experience has been that they are very responsive. Great work on this one. Worth every penny
  • Very good tunings!

    Works great. I only tune my own pianos and used tune lab for a long time. My friend told me about this one and I decided to take the plunge. It does a great job. I like the end result tuning a little better than tune lab. I don't know if it's worth $300+ more, but I'll get a lot of turnings out of this, and if I'm going to spend the time doing them, I may as well do them the best way available to me. This seems to me to be the best. It works across devices, too. I prefer the iPhone, but iPad works great, too.

    I read a book on piano tuning and after a few years practice was able to do a passable job on my own piano, but using Verituner I can make it sound great! It really does what is says it will do. I will still have my piano professionally tuned every year (at my skill level it is still too much work), but this will allow me to keep it sounding great year-round.

    I am an amateur pianinst and very amateur PT. I read a few books on tuning but was not confident in my ability without having had any supervised training. After much hand wringing, I decided to buy Verituner and see if I could do it. Long story short, I did it! It took me several hours but it was fun and interesting, and the results (imo) are very very good to my ears. I am sure I will improve after more experience with the app and obtaining a quality hammer. I am also looking forward to experimenting with the different temperaments in the app. The software is easy to use and very well explained in the downloadable user's guide (I recommend reading this before starting.) Simply a fantastic product for amateurs and pros alike.

    As an early adopter of the original Verituner VT-100 tuning device in 2001, I can whole-heartedly recommend this app for the professional and aspiring piano technician. It boots up instantly, no more waiting for the software to load. It takes a little getting used to using the touchscreen instead of punching buttons, but once you get use to it, it is very intuitive to use. I was a little worried at first about not being able to transfer my old tuning files to my iPhone, but I have found that even a brand new tuning sounds as good or maybe even better than a tuning with my VT-100. The bright color screen is easier on the eyes; I can tune 4-5 pianos without a recharge; it weighs ounces instead of pounds; and the app cost a lot less than my VT-100. If you own an iPhone and are a piano technician, do yourself a favor, cough up the bucks and make the investment in yourself and in your business.

    There is nothing like this for a piano. Some people might think a free guitar tuning app will work buy they are mistaken. The piano has to many ringing harmonics for a simple app like that. Verituner is accurate and fast.
  • A bargain at the price!

    I know there are those who will have sticker shock: perhaps this is not the right app for them - it might be overkill. The Verituner is very sophisticated, essentially doing a spectral analysis on every note to understand its characteristics and then computing a target based on other parameters you set. My old VT100 cost almost three times as much, weighs nearly four pounds, and has a slow, dim screen I can barely read. This is faster, much more portable, and a lot easier on the eyes. Although intended for pianos, I have found this to be the only digital tuner that works well with clavichords. I have used the Verituner to tune harpsichords for many years with very good results. Likewise with fortepianos. You don't need this to tune your guitar, but for more complex stringed instruments (and I'm guessing instruments like pipe organs), there is nothing like this.
