The new version of Tunepal for Android is rolling out to devices around the world! BTW From now on I’ll be positing news about updates to the Facebook page.
There is a problem with Tunepal on the latest Galaxy S3 which causes the app to generate an error when trying to play a tune. Ive managed to borrow an S3 for the day and have implemented a fix I am currently testing. If you have an S3 PM me your email address and I’ll send you the updated Tunepal this weekend.

I’ve had a breakthrough in implementing transposition invariant searches in the past week. In other words, you can play a tune in any key and it will find matches in any key. How useful would this be to you? BTW Check out the Tunepal Facebook page for some more discussions…
tunepal.org now defaults to staff notation when you display a tune. Staff notation is rendered using the latest version of the ABCJS rendering engine. You can still view and download the ABC source by hitting the ABC link underneath the tune: http://tunepal.org/tunepal/show_tune.php?tunepalid=3-hnj0.abc-2-Banish~Misfortune
Hey trad bands! I am currently doing some work for these guys: http://45sound.com/. They have an amazing service. If you are doing a gig and would like to use the service free of charge for your fan videos let me know and I’ll set it up:
45 Sound is a new service which makes your live music videos sound better. We replace the original sound of your video footage (which is usually fairly poor) with a high-quality recording of the exact same part of the concert. Now when you upload your video to YouTube and share it on Facebook, it will sound as good as it looks. It’s a great way to capture the memory of the concert, and also to play your own part in telling the story of the band or artist. Check out this example of how the service works:
Here is an example of the multi-angle player version of a Kila show from last December:
There is a new version of Tunepal for Android rolling out today with lots of minor bug fixes and enhancements. Let me know if you ave any problems with it. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.tunepal&hl=en
The tunepal.org server is offline right now. Some problem in the hosting company. They are working on it. It should be back online shortly
