Default Re: Drum Tuning iPhone App

How does this work? Your description states that it measures the strongest frequency of the drum. If there are overtones present then sometimes the overtone pitches can be stronger than the fundamental pitch of the drum, which is lost in the mix of tones. Do you have any way of filtering these tones?

I ask because I have a tunebot from overtone labs that does a phenominal job of filtering the unwanted frequencies and allowing you to find the true pitch the drum, and indeed the tuning at each lug, resonates at. Does this work basically as a chromatic tuner, like you can use currently on a guitar, or is there something more going on? I've tried using a chromatic tuner on a drum before but it just gets too confused.

Thanks in advance for your info.
