  • Pitch Tuning Mode: High and tight or low and powerful, the choice is yours. Pitch tuning helps you to find the perfect tone for your drums, quickly, accurately, every time.

  • Lug Tuning Mode: Ensures that the drumhead is evenly tensioned and that the drum decays with a smooth and even tone.

  • Resonant Head Tuning Mode: Tune the resonant drumhead to make your drums SING! iDrumTune allows you to be sure that the two heads are working together and giving rich sonic overtones.

  • Spectrum Analyzer: Understand the acoustics of your drums in more detail, so you can really start to identify which frequencies are excited and heard when playing the drums.

  • Drum Kit Presets: Design, save and recall your favourite tunings and share them with the world.

How Drum tuning technology can benefit:

 

Drums are an instrument with an unlimited range of opportunity to personalise and perfect your sound, through your choice of shells, drumheads and how you tension and tune. But tuning or optimising the sound of an instrument isn’t easy – neither guitarists nor pianists tune or tension their instruments without assistance. In fact, the human ear is not well designed for accurately assessing drum sounds, since they do not have significant musical overtones like the piano or guitar. Furthermore, drums have a number of tuning components; two drumheads with multiple lugs and tension rods, making them one of the hardest instruments to tune well. The iDrumTune Pro app is based on cutting-edge acoustics research, working much like an electronic guitar tuner, but for drums. But a conventional drum tuner cannot work for drums - iDrumTune uses a sophisticated analysis algorithm to identify and evaluate all the key sonic components of drum sounds, and provides feedback on how to tune the drumheads in order to achieve you perfect drum sound.

 

Using iDrumTune, you can experiment with different tuning setups and be sure to achieve the same sound every night, at every gig, for different music styles, and whenever changing drumheads. The iDrumTune Pro app is more accurate than the human ear, ensuring that your drumheads are evenly tensioned and that your resonant head works in unison with the batter drumhead head. With iDrumTune Pro, and it’s associated drum sound tutorials, you embark on a journey to fully understand drum tuning, once and for all!

"a fantastic tool for both drummers and studio engineers seeking that perfect drum sound. It’s a Swiss Army knife for tuning drums."
