THE TUNING CD

The Tuning C.D. dramatically improves singers and woodwind, brass and orchestral string players pitch. Awarded two United States patents, each track of The Tuning C.D. sounds a sustained drone of octaves and fifths. The octaves are in equal temperament while the fifths are pure.

FLUTINI

Flutini is a program for analyzing pitch information for instruments like flutes in real time. Unlike a traditional tuner, where you play a single note and watch a needle fluctuate around on a dial, Flutini listens as you play a tune, identifies the notes you're playing, averages all the "E"s and "G#"s and so on, and then tells you how sharp or flat you were on each note. Just play a tune and you will get an honest assessment of your tuning under real playing conditions!
