The Miso Strobe Tuner is a mobile strobe tuner application for the iPad®, iPhone®, and iPod Touch®**, and most Android platforms that simulates the visual effect of a mechanical strobe tuner.
Our patented polyphonic pitch detection allows for tuning multiple notes or harmonics simultaneously even in a noisy environment. Miso Strobe Tuner is accurate enough to tune a drum kit or even figure out when it’s time to change out old guitar strings.
