Pitch Perfect is a digital pitch pipe tailored towards musicians who like to keep a record of their songs and keys. It’s also an excellent utility app for those who struggle to match a key to the name of it and to take an initial pitch before rehearsing a song. Pitch Perfect is a pretty simple app to use. It is available to download for free from both the Google Play Store and iTunes.
Pitch Perfect has a one tap control operation. All you need to do to play a certain pitch or key is tap on the key given on the screen. The audio quality isn’t the best, we’ll have to say. In fact if you’ve just started using the app and have your headphones on, you may want to turn the volume down. Pitch Perfect keeps things as natural as possible without synthesizing or trying to make a pitch sound more melodious to the ear. Perhaps that explains the objectionable audio quality.
What the app does is simply generate a sine wave for the given frequency of the key. This is to let musicians understand and remember how each key sounds and at what frequency.
The app design of Pitch Perfect is as simple as it can get. The app itself is only 5 MB in size so you won’t be expecting a lot of color and function from Pitch Perfect. On the outlook, Pitch Perfect is a blanched out application with gray, white and black themes – nothing special, really.
You might need a little time to get to know your way around the app too. If you’re a dedicated musician who knows his keys and falsettos, Pitch Perfect might not seem a confusing tool but for beginners, this app will need some getting used to. Plus, without any startup tutorial, this task becomes even more problematic.
In the app, you’ll notice four separate tabs for different functions. The first one that is also the home screen of the app is the Pitch Page. Here you can try out different keys simply by tapping on them once. These keys are arranged in rectangular boxes and you have the option to select the sequence from either C to B or F to E.
The next tab is where all the Notes are displayed. Here you’ll be able to see both the note/keys with their frequencies. This is the page where avid musicians can really come up with the perfect pitch and tune for their songs. It’s a great place to remember what frequencies your notes are at because no human can remember all those pitches by heart.
The third page in Pitch Perfect is dedicated to different keys signatures along with their notes or key names. This page is also a great place for musicians who tend to forget their song keys. Every note has a specific key and from this page, you can compose your entire song by choosing the right note and its respective key. You can either save your songs in the app or write the key down in your own notes.
Finally, the fourth and last page of Pitch Perfect is perhaps our favorite. Here you can add your own songs and select the initial pitch for it. This is where you can give that new tune you thought of a head start.
