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 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 :) -
