IK Multimedia has released the latest version of their UltraTuner app for iPhone. It is now compatible with the Apple Watch. UltraTuner allows musicians to accurately tune their instruments straight from their wrist. That makes it even easier for musicians to keep their instruments in tune on stage, in the studio, or anywhere in between.
The newest version of the UltraTuner app can now be paired with the Apple Watch when it is installed on an iPhone with the most recent OS. Musicians can view the tuning information on their Apple Watch in 2 operational modes: UltraTuner’s classic graduated LED “STAGE mode”, and a simple “NOTE mode”, customized for the Apple Watch display.
“STAGE mode” provides a bright, highly visible, display with two large LED-like wing arrays that light up in progressive amounts according to whether the note played is flat or sharp. The tuning indicator will turn a bright neon green when the note is in tune.
“NOTE mode” shows the musical note letter that is being played, with arrows below to indicate whether the note is flat or sharp. It also will turn a bright neon green when the note is in tune.
Beyond the Apple Watch enhancement, the Ultra Tuner app can run on both iPhone or iPod touch. It can receive an audio signal through the built-in microphone or an audio interface (like IK’s iRig HD, iRig 2, or iRig PRO). Its note-detection engine delivers accuracy down to +/- 1/100 of a cent, making it easy for precision tuning and calibration of all instruments.
The newest version of UltraTuner, that is now compatible with Apple Watch, is available from the App Store for $/€4.99 Those who already own the UltraTuner for iPhone app will receive a free update of UltraTuner for Apple Watch.
