Hunedoara, Romania – Independent developer Valentin Radu is happy to announce the release of Silvertune, the iPhone(R) and iPod touch(R) instrument tuner. Featuring a new, modern, pitch detection algorithm, Silvertune supports a wide range of woodwind, brass and bowed string instruments. Accurate to 1/100 of a semitone, the tuner is ready for professional use.
Silvertune aims to be easy to use, reliable, beautiful to look at and most important of all, accurate. “When I started to develop Silvertune, I knew from my previous experience with professional musicians, that it would have to be very accurate to fulfill their expectations. That’s why I didn’t use any of the traditional pitch detection algorithms” said Valentin.
The tuner has all the basic functionality included, but lacks some of the features other AppStore tuners have. “In my opinion, there are 3 major things that define a good tuner. It has to be accurate, it has to be easy to read and it has to be responsive and reliable. I focused my development efforts on those 3 things, leaving aside other less important features. Even so, Silvertune still offers basic options like, an adjustable A4 frequency or solfege notation”, he explained.
“Of course, I know there’s always room for improvement, so, I’m committed to continue the development with a series of updates” he concluded.
