The tune-bot tuning calculator will help you determine the notes and frequencies to reach your perfect sound. Based on your drums and your personal preferences the tune-bot will provide recommended settings based on musical intervals. You can then use the tune-bot drum tuner to tune your drums to these exact settings. Also you can experiment with other tunings and try some of our “pro tunings” from the various tune-bot artists. After you’ve tuned your set to your liking you can save the pitches of all your drums to allow you to quickly re-tune to the same sound over and over again. No more guesswork!

The tuning calculator app includes:

•Drum-Set calculator
•Snare Drum calculator
•Bass Drum calculator
•Single-Tom calculator
•Store and Recall of multiple Drum-Sets
•Pro Tunings from tune-bot Artists
•Tuning Guide
•Tuning Videos

*THIS IS NOT A DRUM TUNER! It is a tool intended to be used with the tune-bot drum tuner.

**The tune-bot drum tuner is available worldwide in music stores and online. See www.tune-bot.com for a list of dealers.

It Works, but Needs Audio Samples

I used this with my tune-bot gig. With a lot of patience I was eventually able to tune my tom and the note matched. However, it would be very useful to tap on the calculated results and be able to hear what each drum would sound like. This would make it really easy to select desired pitches.

Pretty Useless for a Pro

This app is a good idea for a companion to their tuner but like the tuner it's a good idea that lacks critical features. While you can "calculate" tunings and save them you can't adjust your tunings at all. If your toms are calculated at 280hz but you actually have to tune your lugs to 288hz to get the pitch you need you CAN'T change that anywhere. Also if you're a professional drummer with 7 drum kits and 27 snare drums you can't save them either. You can't name your saved kits either so you have to remember them as Save1, etc. I'm still left with using Excel on my phone to save all this stuff anyway so what's the point ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

The documentation is a great resource but you can get that on their site anyway. All in all, it's a pretty freaking useless app... but I guess it's a start. Just need to rush more development through to make it so we can actually use it.

Good tool, but needs work?

I’m a musician who likes to play all of the material for my originals, including drums. I just got the tune-bot and I think it’s a very handy tool, but it’s confusing that the settings in the app are different than what you get in the documentation. I think there’s a real disconnect that they don’t sync up. For example, the recommendation in the documentation for the bass drum is way off from what is shown in the app. Same thing with the snare. So, as a novice drummer, who needs help in getting the tuning right, which one do I choose? App or documentation?
