This is the simplest tuner you could have. Think of it like a tuning fork. There's 4 buttons for the 4 strings. Press one of the notes, listen, and play the corresponding note on your cello. Adjust as necessary if it sounds too high or low. My only complaint is that the C tone is a bit off. If that's fixed then the app is worth 5 stars.
It works great. Nice and fast - I use it every time I practice my cello. A big step up from a tuning fork. But it doesn’t tell you if your note is too high or too low- you have to be able to do that by hearing and comparing the sounds from your tuner and cello.
I got this app so I could tune my out-of-tune cello. But when I tapped the notes nothing happened. The screen stayed the same as when I had first opened it. It didn’t even do anything as I played any notes. Please fix this.
I dont know what everyone else was thinking when they acquired this app, but apparently they expected something that would sound like a high dollar cello that would tune yours automatically. In all honesty, it sounds great for reference. You won't compose Beethoven's 5th on it, but if you're a beginner needing a reference tone for your open steing tuning its excellent. What else is cool, is that you can hit two notes simultaneously and hear both notes together. I love the way low register 5ths sound on this. I'm a guitarist transformed to electric bass, exploring cello and upright bass. Don't listen to the negatives on here, this app is worth the time to download
I dont event play cello, i play viola. I got this app so i could help tune the others who actualy DO play the cello. It works fine. Its in tune, its got all 4 strings, and it helps you tune. Does it sound like a cello? Debatable. But cmon people, what do u want? Yoyo ma playing an A flat scale for you? Btw person some comments below me, its spelled disgrace. Maybe you should practice spelling and grammar as much as your cello.
I like the app for its easy to use interface and no complications. I notice some people say that it doesn't even sound like a cello, but it gives you the right note to tune to (which is exactly what I needed). I would recommend it unless you want something more professional.
Great! My only issues: - I know a tuner doesn't have to sound like a cello, but it would help if it didn't sound so techno. - Playing the note should not be such a short time. I am just learning how to tune and it gets kinda annoying every time I stop to keep the note going. My suggestion for this issue: • Just keep it going until you touch it to make it stop! For a free app, it's pretty good! ( I would have been disapointed If I had to pay for this! )
This app I very useful. It doesn't tune your cello by it's self or tell you what to do but you can use it to know how you can adjust the pegs so you can tune your cello. If you say 1 star then you don't know how to use the app. It is very simple to use.
Ok , so I play the cello and thought that this would be fun but really it's useless...don't get it it's just a waste :( but I guess it would kinda be useful to teachers and people who know how to play professional cello.... But overall, it's a waste so take my word for it..! Bye! Happy Holidays! ;)
Horrible it fluctuates and the sound quality of the real wooden instrument can't be sounded over these iPod or iPhone speakers this app is a waist of time take it from an expert I know I've been plating for 32 years and I practice my cello every day no matter what
not incredibly useful. should be able to tell if my cello is out of tune. and to the reviewer that mentions the SF Symphony, you should probably learn how to spell San Francisco if you want to sound credible.
