Why is Reyburn CyberTuner the visual tuning device preferred by so many professional piano tuners?
- Reyburn CyberTuner for iOS (iRCT) is the only piano visual tuning device to take full advantage of an iOS device. iRCT shares the same proven accuracy and most features with RCT running on older platforms.
- iRCT accommodates all experience levels, giving beginning tuners a very simple
interface, but offers advanced tuners unlimited customizable stretch choices.
- New for iRCT! New Concert Tune mode combines the best of Fine Tune and Smart Tune but customized for 7 and 9 foot concert instruments.
- Faster and higher resolution spinner than has ever been possible with RCT before. We've taken full advantage of OpenGL and the Graphics Processing Units on iOS hardware.
- Pitch raising (and lowering) with iRCT is extraordinarily accurate and fast.
- The RCT "CyberCloud" automatically keeps iRCT calibrated to A440.0.
- iRCT creates super-accurate tunings from low bass to high treble because careful and accurate multi-
partial samples are taken from five or six notes (A1, A2, A3, A4, A5 and A6). All partials are
automatically measured and recorded to a hundredth of a cent!
- iRCT creates aural-quality tunings because it directly matches sampled partials - exactly what aural
tuners do every day.
- Small (and all scale-challenged) pianos never sounded better! iRCT automatically senses and
compensates for short scaling in spinets, small grands, etc.
- RCT tuning files can be imported from RCT Mac/Win or Pocket RCT via email or iTunes file share.
- Super easy Historical Temperaments includes the ability to create your own custom temperaments. 59 temperaments are built-in, add hundreds more custom temperaments from any source.
- New! Study for the PTG RPT Exam, or brush up on your aural skills with the new Aural Tutor expert tuning system.
- Simple to use! Tap the Record button, and Chameleon indicates the note to play, then automatically measures and
- New "Smart Partials" feature chooses the right partial for every piano! "Smart Partials" automatically chooses the optimal partial for each
piano based on octave type feathering, partial loudness, inharmonicity and piano size among other factors.
User can turn off Smart Partials feature in the rare case where the user needs more control.
- It's easy to choose from ten stretch styles, from pure to very wide or RPT Exam style to emulate a PTG exam
- Want even simpler? RCT can automatically choose optimal stretch and partials.
- Tap the Calculate button, and Chameleon creates an 88-note tuning in less than a second by directly matching
partials - just like aural tuners do every day!
- Auto-compensates for spinets and other "scale-challenged" pianos.
- RCT is the only tuning device which can automatically adjust the overall stretch of the tuning to be opitmal for each piano.
CyberEar & Tuning Graph
- Spinner rotates to indicate pitch deviation in cents or beats (you choose!), moves to left or right to
intuitively show large pitch deviation, target blushing if within 0.3 cents or beats for super fine accuracy,
adjustable sensitivity, change spinner colors, and more.
- Portrait or Landscape and auto rotation to any of the four positions fully supported.
- Unsurpassed fast and accurate one-pass pitch raising because CyberEar automatically measures and offsets
every note using optimized overpull percentages ranging from 4% to 38%.

displayed, accuracy, resolution and repeatability to 0.01 cents.
- Simple to reset pitch; current setting always displayed.
- CyberEar switches to full-screen mode with 88 note keyboard display.
- Tuning Graph shows cents and partials for all 88 notes The shape of this graph can indicate the quality of the samples
Piano Technicians Guild RPT Exam Scoring
