pianoscope 1.5 is now available in the App Store. The Apple App Store team was faster than expected, even on a Sunday…
These are its release notes:
- Starting with version 1.5, pianoscope uses a new algorithm (v2) to calculate the current pitch in the tuning view. It makes the movements of the indicator and strobe much calmer, especially when tuning simpler pianos with many fluctuating partials. The new algorithm takes more partials into account and combines them in a different way. For some instruments, this may result in bass tones being tuned slightly flatter, but this is advantageous in these cases. If you want to use the old algorithm (v1) for compatibility with older tunings, you can activate it in the new compatibility section in the indicator settings.
- You can adjust the font size of the textual pitch display in the indicator settings.
- The header field showing a document’s concert pitch is displayed in bold if it differs from the default value. (pro only)
- On the pianoscope website, there is a new community forum where you can discuss all topics related to pianoscope. You can access it via the help menu in the app or directly under https://forum.pianoscope.app
- The document browser now offers a local pianoscope folder in which you can also put tuning documents. If you connect your iPhone or iPad to a Mac with a USB cable, you can access the contents of this folder via the Finder.
- When pianoscope was started while a phone call was active, an error was presented.
