The essential tool for all musicians playing traditional Irish, Scots, Welsh and Breton music!

Ever sat in a trad session and wondered what was the name of that great tune someone just played? Well now you can search a database of over 22, 000 tunes from your iPhone/iPod BY PLAYING!

Just hold your device up to a melody instrument such as the tin-whistle, flute, concertina, uilleann pipes, accordion or banjo, hit record and the melody will be extracted and submitted to the tunepal.org search engine for matching.

Matching tunes are downloaded to your device, where you can view and edit the notation or the stave, email the tune, post it to facebook or play it back using the high quality playback engine based on ABC2MIDI and FMOD.

4/5 stars

Brilliant! But needs some further tweaking

I would give this app 5+ stars for its sheer brilliance. It is a great tool for the session musician and a bargain at twice the price.

But I knocked the total down to 4 stars for some bugs and annoyances:

- If you swipe across a tune name in My Tunes in order to delete it, the delete button appears on the tune *above* the one you swiped.

- For some tunes in the My Tunes list, the key and rhythm are not displayed, even though the abc code dilplays seemingly correct headers for these values.

- If the display is in landscape mode, the countdown digits don't appear when you start a recording.

- There does not appear to be any way to sort the My Tunes list. Tunes simply appear in reverse chronological order, based on when you added them. Ideally, one could sort by title, rhythm, and/or key. Drag-and-drop reordering would also be nice.

I'm running TunePal under iOS 4.2.1 on a 4g iPod Touch. For what ir's worth, I previously tried an earlier version of TunePal on a 2g iPod Touch with an external "Thumbtacks" microphone, and I got poor results with tune identification. With my current setup, tune identification is excellent.

5/5 stars

Great app!

The accuracy of identifying tunes poorly played is fairly amazing. I love being able to pull up sheet music and You Tube videos after identifying the tunes, as well as to be able to share through facebook.

It would be interesting to be able to put in what you already know about a tune ( example, Ed Reavy tune) to help in identification.

A great party game by the way.
