A.P.S. Tuning Trainer for the iPhone

A.P.S. Development LLC (http://apsdevs.com) has just released version 1.0 of the A.P.S. Tuning Trainer iOS app to the Apple Store.  This app, designed for the iPhone (and will also work on the iPad), will revolutionize how people train themselves with regard to Pitch Discrimination!   Available at a greatly reproduced price for launch ($0.99 US, short-time only!), this app will rapidly become a “must have” for all musicians that seek to become more accurate at tuning at blazing speeds.  When this app is released we post the link right HERE. Browse the A.P.S. Tuning Trainer Gallery: [oqeygallery id=3] Official A.P.S. Tuning Trainer Release Text Meta Data: The A.P.S. Tuning Trainer is unique app. that approaches ear-training from a completely neglected angle -properly tuning an instrument or note… and it DELIVERS almost IMMEDIATE results. * Available at launch at an extremely REDUCED price! (Get it now and tell your musician friends!) What if you could have the confidence to tune your notes, instruments, and ensembles (voice or instrumental) and be accurate to within a 16th of a semi-tone with complete confidence?   The answer is… everything you are doing musically would improve -including the confidence level of your own tuning abilities. A.P.S. Tuning Trainer was developed from the “ground up” by veteran ensemble directors experienced in ensemble and individual tuning methods.  This app features an incredible amount of options all designed to do one thing: make you unbelievably precise with regard to accurately comparing two different sounds or notes. The objetive of this app is to make you as proficient as possible and hopefully, to become accurate to within 12 Cents ( a measurement of pitch space) of a note.  12 Cents is less than 1/8 of a semi-tone apart!   A.P.S. Tuning Trainer accomplishes this goal by presenting a myriad of pitch examples and includes the ability to review them after the correct answer is known.  It also presents the user with an unprecedented amount of “real-world” options that typically will cause confusion (undermine) with regard to a user being able to determine whether or not a pitch is “In Tune”: Three complete octave range choices (and the ability to combine them) The ability to make detection “harder” or “easier” by changing the pitch variance (1 to 50 Cents and pitch variance ranges!) The ability to change the Timbre of the Reference Pitch The ability to change the Timbre of the Determinant Pitch The ability to control how long a pitch is presented The ability to change the time (in seconds) between the two comparison pitches A.P.S. Tuning Trainer also keeps a score of your success and shows the current pitch variance settings (useful screenshot proof!). INCLUDED in the manual (and on our website) is a FREE, 4 week (20 day) curriculum that all but guarantees mastery of  precise pitch discrimination.  It does this while only requiring 20 minutes, per day, of practice!  (This will be posted here soon as a FREE PDF DOWNLOAD). There isn’t a musician out there that WILL NOT benefit from the ability to more accurately tune themselves and others AND the A.P.S. Tuning Trainer is now here to make sure that benefit happens as quick as possible! We hope that you will love this product as much as we do!        ~A.P.S. Dev...
