I have bought a really decent tuning lever 2 months ago to touch up on the one or other note, but your software gave me some courage (knowing that my regular technician will come over in 6 weeks anyway).

So, I took the plunge and tuned the whole piano, taking it from 439.1 to 440kHz.

This is the result:

Lovely. Thanks so much for sharing your music. You did a great tuning job!!

OE1FEU, Thank you for sharing, that's great to hear. And beautiful playing! My biggest problem with tuning older Steinways like the one you describe is "string rendering".

Unrelated note for Beta users: I'm very close to pulling the trigger on the new app name, so expect to have the app icon randomly disappear from wherever you placed it on your device's screen. (sorry about that) And thank you to those of you who have proposed name ideas and provided feedback on some of my ideas.

Thanks. A word of advice: never rebrand. Just do it right the first time.
In my case the first time around I didn't even consider things like how the name might be interpreted in other languages, or whether it might have too many letters to fit under the icon on many device screens, showing up as "Easy Pia..."

Beginner tuner here, thinking about buying easy piano tuner tomorrow but I have a quick question before I end up buying anything that might not work in my case. All my pianos have 85 keys and I know this is ok in tunelab but I'm not sure if that poses a problem with other software and easy piano tuner in particular.

Oh yes! Sorry! I wrote before i woke up completely. Just at work many Bechstein and home Pianoteq Bechstein. Of course Bösendorfer! I also wanted to ask for small changes:
- a large number of letters in the description leads to the crawling of characters on each other.
- dates left and right different formats.

This is just an idea, as I don't have a convenient Bosendorfer to play around with...

1. Lock the tuning curve so the app isn't trying to measure inharmonicity.
2. Change the note switching mode to "Lock".
3. Use the keyboard at the bottom of the screen or the hidden note switching buttons to switch the note to G#1 (see this tutorial video at the 2:07 mark for how to switch notes manually)
4. Tune G#0, using whichever strobe rings show up. If you make the strobe ring labeled "5" stop turning, you'll be tuning G#0 to G#1 as a 5:10 octave.
5. Step the note down to G1 and repeat for G0, etc.

Let me know if this method works :-)

Thank you for the screenshot of the text wrapping issue. I've put that on my to-do list.

I've come across an interesting phenomenon with PianoMeter.

My old tablet (actually a 'phablet', a phone tablet) was missing for a couple of weeks. I got it back today, it having been left in my car which was in for a bodywork repair. It is getting old and creaky anyway (like me), so in the meantime I had bought a new phablet, and installed all the apps I had on the old one, including PianoMeter.

Having got the old one back, I updated Easy Piano Tuner to PianoMeter. On checking against an online 440Hz tone, I find that the old tablet reads it as 6.4Hz sharp. BUT, when I go into the calibration setting, it reads 440 as 440, rock steady. The new phablet (and, indeed, my Android smartphone) reads 440Hz correctly.

Is it something to do with the old version of Android, 4.2.2 running on the old phablet?

That's really weird. So like 24 cents off? The only time I've seen something like that was when I had an old tuning file loaded where I forgot that I had input a custom offset. It had me scratching my head for like a half hour until I created a new tuning file and the problem went away. If the problem persists after creating a new tuning file could you shoot me an email?

Sorry sorry sorry, - not 6.4 Hz, but 6.4 CENTS sharp. I've just tried again, loading 'new tuning file', and it's still 6.4 cents sharp. I'm not worried about it at all, as I have my new tablet, just intrigued! Will email you.

David,

Its possible your old tablet had a timing crystal with its external capacitors (that deteriorate) and not a self contained timing oscillator which is an order of magnitude more accurate.
