Seeing Is Believing

Introducing SteadyTune, the menu bar tuner for your Mac. Beautiful, accurate, stable, intuitive: you have to see it to believe it.

A Powerful Tuner Right Where You Need It

Guitar players and musicians are some of the heaviest Mac users around. SteadyTune, the Mac menu bar tuner from the makers of GuitarToolkit and AmpKit, is beautifully implemented, amazingly lightweight, and always available when you need it. Now you can add tuning to the list of musical tasks your Mac is great at!

Accurate and Stable

SteadyTune's tuning algorithm is completely new, developed based on our 5 years of experience with the award-winning GuitarToolkit app. SteadyTune improves upon earlier-generation tuners in two ways: better tuning accuracy, and vastly improved needle stability when tuning. The difference is dramatic.

Easy on the Eyes

A great tuning algorithm deserves a great tuning visualization, and SteadyTune introduces an altogether new visualization, with a high-precision log-ruled tuning strip that smoothly animates from out-of-tune dark red to in-tune bright green. The combination of this highly-intuitive visualization with SteadyTune's stability and precise note detection results in a fast, accurate and enjoyable tuning experience.

More Than Just Guitar

Whatever instrument you're tuning, SteadyTune has you covered. And the list extends well beyond guitar:

  • 6 String Guitar
  • 7 String Guitar
  • 12 String Guitar
  • 4 String Bass
  • 5 String Bass
  • 6 String Bass

In fact, with SteadyTune's "All Instruments" setting, you can tune just about anything—woodwinds, brass, you name it. Note: bagpipes are prohibited.
