" Very useful!"

I just realized the tuning of 7 barrels drumkit (22-14-8-10-12-14-16) with Tune-Bot.
Who may not have a musical ear to identify gaps constant note of a drum to another, that I was a very big help.
Set 3 toms ladle is already easy then 5 ...

I strongly advise to read the instructions, some issues raised on this site can be solved with functionality implemented in the device.

In terms of weaknesses, 3 things:
- Tables giving standard values ​​for drums is not included in the manual. We must go and download (in English) on the site. Essential and very informative!
- Give skin typing is very simple because their score is close enough to the root of the barrel. on the other......

- Give skin typing is very simple because their score is close enough to the root of the barrel. on the other hand, those resonances, it is a different story! The tuner picks up more easily than the root note of the skin. Despite the "filter" function, I have not managed to make him see notes skins reso toms 8 and 10. "Well, it does not matter, these skins determine the duration of the note, not their height so it can be done by ear careful anyway.. if after setting your skin then hit the resolu frequency displayed by the Tune-Bot is not that of the drum head when you play was, is that the resolution is set incorrectly ;)
- It is not supposed to move around the drum tuner. Yet when some ties are a bit difficult to adjust, to make a quarter turn Tune-Bot can help.

Note that I realized half the tuning listening Metal Core pretty hard on my sound system and it has not changed the behavior of the machine.

" it is useless"

I acquired this product out of curiosity, it is not expensive and there are a lot of hype on the internet about this so-called revolution.

I had already tried the Tama Tension Watch and I was very disappointed. This product, which are clever is strictly unusable on sanded skin, any gran sand by moving the needle completely.

Let us return to tunebot.

The idea is to clip the device on the circle and hit all around the barrel near the rods to see if a frequency display.

The idea is attractive, but:

- It requires the silence around you (just imagine when installed for a balance ...)

- Frequencies displayed are sometimes almost anything and saw the flowering of internet......

The idea is to clip the device on the circle and hit all around the barrel near the rods to see if a frequency display.

The idea is attractive, but:

- It requires the silence around you (just imagine when installed for a balance ...)

- Frequencies displayed are sometimes almost anything and saw the flowering of internet techniques to avoid these unwanted frequencies, such place a finger here, try yourself ...

In summary, the only advantage that I see to this object and it has taught me that my floor tom resonates at 70Hz, big deal!

Finally, if you have not sanded skin, prefer the Tama Tension Watch. You can use it in a noisy environment and it does not need batteries. The only slight drawback is that you need to write down your settings on a paper.

Finally, to conclude, even under optimal conditions, the tunebot told me that two rods are granted while my ear hears something else.

I'm still adjusting to my ear, and tunebot hear no difference.

In short: my ear is more sensitive than this thing. Finally it is reassuring.

I do not recommend to buy, train your ear, you will reap far greater benefits.

And what class to give a 5-minute ear when landing in concert!

" Tune-While"

Overtone Labs Tune-BotPublished on 12/27/12 at 02:40

Purchased from Thomann for € 90.
Very good product that I just bought recently, so my opinion will be incomplete.
The Tune-bot captures the fundamental drum (bass drum, snare and tom) and adjust by pulling each tone frequency or note (optional). Very practical, it can also save settings per skin (punch and resonance).
You just need to strike at regular intervals each tie to score a stable. Sometimes the indicator and packs a bit more strikes in the same place does not always give the same result, but these are the consequences of all harmonics wander, especially if you deal with musicians who agree around ... I guess.

I guess.
I recommend setting a regular place an object light, small and flexible enough (eg folded cloth) in the center of the skin to be able to mutate the center frequencies of the skin so as not to sound as harmonics edges.
You can also rely on the frequency of firing and after stored, meet other depending choose one ... setting a referent as taking money.
It is a function to isolate frequencies, but I do not yet fully tested ... to adjust the bass drum just hang the camera on a stick resting on the rim of the bass drum:) -
FYI I tested the microphone to see if the object could capture the fundamental of a cymbal, it would practice, but after several attempts and a confirmation email of the manufacturer, the thing is not (yet) possible :) -
