Default Re: Drum Tuning iPhone App


I purchased the app for my iPad this morning, but I'm getting strange readings. For one thing, my 8" tom and my 14" floor tom are measuring roughly the same (151 Hz and 148 Hz, respectively), though the difference in perceived pitch between these drums is (as you would expect) massive. Second, I'm finding that the Hz reading on my floor tom varies widely -- more than 30 Hz -- from one hit to the next. The fluctuations seem to be tied to how hard I hit the drum, as if its measuring volume rather than pitch.

Any ideas on what I might be doing wrong?
