Default Murray Blair Tuner App

I just updated the Murray Blair tuner app on my iPhone. One of the new features is support for bluetooth microphones.

So, anyone got any thoughts on a mic that would work? Any experience with bluetooth mics for tuning pipes? Does it work?

Scot.

Default Murray Blair Tuner App

I've been hesitant to update as it says, like most apps nowadays, that its optimized for iPhone 5, which makes me wonder if it was unoptimized for 4/4s.

Anyways, I'm trying to figure out how one would hold a Bluetooth mic, an iPhone, and still play to tune. Anyone got an idea how to set it up to be useful?

The other slight concern I would have is the electronics. You need low power consumption on a battery mic, especially when you also have to drive a radio, and this may lead to sample rates not being accurate. Test with and without the mic to ensure the readings are the same.

You wear it on your left ear. Since it's near the drones, it ought to work great.

And when you're done piping, you can clip it to your nose for safe, hands free phone calls while driving!

Default Re: Murray Blair Tuner App Bluetooth Mic

I'd like to bring this post out of the dust as it's been awhile since it was originally posted. Has anyone tried this clip on Bluetooth mic? Any feedback would be appreciated! Check out the video of it below.

The mic works great!! Love mine and so does the band when we are in a noisy place.

But there is an issue now with iOS 10 and pairing so if you're running iOS 10 I would wait for a full fix. Murray is on it but I think it is more a case of apple fixing Bluetooth.
