A few updates for users of Tunepal:

1. Foinse (the Irish language supplement to the Irish Independant) has a nice feature on Tunepal today. You can view a high res scan of the article here: http://tunepal.wordpress.com
2. iPhone owners - the latest version of Tunepal is now available. This version has an improved matching algorithm that is better at identifying tunes even when the parts are played out of order. For example, getting the B part of a tune back into the A part
3. Android owners – The latest version of Tunepal for Android is now available through the Android Marketplace and direct through the website http://tunepal.org (using Paypal). This version fixes the “Tunepal cannot hear enough notes” problem some users were having. This version is now compatible with all phones running Android 1.5 or higher including the HTC Desire, Hero, Legend, MyTouch, Nexus One, LG Ally, Samsung Galaxy etc.

If anyone needs help upgrading feel free to PM me or leave a message on the Facebook page or blog.

I ran into an interesting one yesterday. I tried to identify a tune off the Andy McGann, Paddy Reynolds, and Paul Brady album by holding my phone to the computer speaker. No joy, though I would have thought the melody was very clear relative to the accompaniment.

I then played the tune by ear (taking a couple of tries without Tunpal first to get the feel of the tune) and it identified it correctly with something like 90% certainty. (Which let me identify which recording I was listening to.)

No complaint here, mind you, just an observation.

Hmmm

I dont have that CD, but I'll pick it up tomorrow. What track was it? What key were they playing in? Dont forget that if they are not playing in concert pitch, you should change the "Transcription Fundamental" in Tunepal. I'm working on various solutions for transposition invarient matching so you wont have to do this (for a future release)

If that album is Shanachie 34008 (Masters of Irish Music series), the tracks are all at concert pitch.
