The essential tool for all musicians playing traditional Irish, Scots, Welsh and Breton music!

Ever sat in a trad session and wondered what was the name of that great tune someone just played? Well now you can search a database of over 22,000 tunes from your iPhone/iPod BY PLAYING!

Hold your device up to a melody instrument such as the tin-whistle, flute, concertina, uilleann pipes, accordion or banjo, hit record and the melody will be extracted and submitted to the tunepal.org search engine for matching.

Matching tunes are downloaded to your device, where you can view and edit the notation or the stave, email the tune, post it to facebook or play it back using the high quality playback engine based on ABC2MIDI and FMOD.

All the rave reviews are nice, but, loaded on my iPad, wouldn’t record without the website connection.
Played the sample tunes, Added a few tunes, and today it won’t play any of them.
Can’t make the connection to find any help... ahhhh, technology.
Glad others are having better luck.

What happen to Ipad compatability?

I was running tunepal on my iiphone and pad and found it to be a good app. Implemented on an ipad, It's particularly good for finding tunes and displaying them quickly. The app works reasonably well on the iphone at sessions - particularly for tunes where a flute or whistle is dominant.
I recently had to restore my ipad and was surprised to see a message that said that tunepal is no longer an ipad app. There is no way to load it on the ipad. What happened? This is a useful app but I'm confused about why it suddenly became an iphone only app.

Doesn’t record

Just purchased and downloaded the original version on my iPad, which told me it was compatible. It doesn’t work. It doesn’t record. I’m a decent fiddle player, it should recognize tunes. But the app is completely unresponsive. It doesn’t record. My iPad is the 2018 model, fairly current. Don’t buy the app, if you have an iPad it appears incompatible.
