Phone App Saves the Day

If it's not a bass, and it's not an amp, but it's something you use when you're playing bass, talk about it here.

Phone App Saves the Day

Postby LaneOnBass » Tue Mar 01, 2011 11:54 am

So... some of you know I have been using Peterson Tuners for many years. Last Fall, I got an iPhone; shortly thereafter, I got the Peterson iStroboSoft app. It has saved the day more than once.

Check it out:


I **hate the iPhone... but I **LOVE this app!

Hey Lane,

Cool ap! Reacts quickly as it was scrolling notes as you spoke.

But, you're starting to sound like a techno-geek! ;)

LOL @ TobiasMan...

Yeah, I am, aren't I? It SUX! LOLOL

But, what's even worse is that you don't know the half of it, bro! In the past two to three weeks, I've learned more Geek stuff than I ever wanted to in my entire life!! All kinds of web junk, and graphics stuff, and video editing and OMDOG!!!! Lemme outta here! Bwahahahaha.

Just goes to show that you really can teach old dogs new tricks... or at least old bass players!

I recently updated my phone to an HTC Inspire (ATT). I d'ld the "g'strings" tuner. Yeah cool name...

Accurate and really quick on the uptake...

I was looking for a nice metronome...but just got a simple one. Thoughts?

Not to hijack the topic, but I'm sure if you hate iphones, and apple stuff, there's something similar, if not exactly the same out for the android phones out there!

It does work very well, and you can see the harmonics visually very well!

No worries about hijacking, bro. And, yeah, there are definitely alternatives to the iPhone. But I'm sticking with this one until the contract is over. At that point, I may well move to an Android phone.
