By far my favorite:  Cleartune for iOS by Bitcount. 
Worth the three or four bucks.



The free tuners out there are probably reasonably accurate.  There is little mystery in the math and fft library behind a tuning app, so it must be assumed that they can't screw that up too badly.

Just installed ClearTune in my iPhone and I am pretty amazed. I had to raise the harp to glue some hammer tips (some fall of every now and then) and I thought this is good moment to tune my Rhodes because it sounded a bit too chorused  ;)

It became a nightmare cause some notes just didn't want to sound they supposed to. There were about 7 keys I successfully tuned by ear which took me about 4 hours or so. The remaining 6 key were tuned within 15 minutes after installing this app. My Rhodes is not stretch tuned btw.

Like the other folks said; it worth the 4 euros.  :D

Fine tuned my Rhodes with Precision Strobe Tuner and I have to say, this one is more accurate than ClearTune.

I doubt whether I should tune my Rhodes stretched. If so, I'm gonna use istrobosoft from Peterson with the Rhodes Stretched sweetener.
