iStroboSoft Brings Strobe Tuning to iPhone

Friday, June 12, 2009| by Will Chen

Alsip, Illinois – Peterson Tuners, in partnership with JHC Software, has released iStroboSoft™ for the Apple iPhone™ and iPod touch® 2nd Generation. iStroboSoft provides the popular Virtual Strobe™ tuning display capable of allowing users to tune their instruments with precision 1/10th cent resolution. Greater tuning accuracy allows better alignment of sounds waves and instruments tend to possess increased clarity after being tuned with a strobe tuner. 

iStroboSoft can be used to tune stringed instruments, brass and woodwind instruments quickly and easily via a simple interface designed specifically for the iPhone and touch. The large strobe pattern can also be made to go full-screen allowing easy viewing in any condition. iStroboSoft features an adjustable Concert A reference, preset drop/capo settings and an input boost for instruments with low outputs. A noise filter is also included for use when tuning with the external mic as well a unique calibration feature that will allow users to 'lock' iStroboSoft's readings with an external tuner.

iPhone users can utilize the built-in microphone for tuning and iPod touch users will require an external microphone similar to the headset mic that is available with hands-free ear buds kits for the iPhone. Peterson will soon be offering an adaptor cable for both iPhone and touch users that will allow a direct connection from the instrument's ¼" to the iPhone/touch mini-jack for instances where tuning with the built-in mic is not optimal. 

"With the ever-growing popularity of StroboSoft, iStroboSoft was the next logical step for us," says Marshall Johns, Product Marketing Manager at Peterson Tuners. "The performance and price point of iStroboSoft makes it a solid choice for those looking for a pro-level tuner on a small budget."

iStroboSoft is now available on the iPhone App Store for $9.99.
