    PhonTuner for vocal training
    Get the initial 'do' tone correct by adjusting your air pressure and muscle tension. Notice any unintention tone fluctuation. When you have get a stable 'do', practice the whole octave do-re-mi-fa-so-la-te-do' to see whether the fading needles all fall on the marks C-D-E-F-G-A-B. Improve the tone that is most seriously off-tuned in conjunction with its neighbouring tone. After mastering the basics, look out for subtle errors such as pitch drop near end of note indicated by the needle pointer rotating anti-clockwise.

    Note: Application of calibrated Sound Texture

  • Achieve perfect pitch tuning for just intonation.
  • See fusing of consonant notes and chords.
  • See subtle time variation of musical notes such as that of church organ.
