Overtone Labs

Overtone Labs set out to simplify tuning and improve drum sound for drummers. They say they were frustrated with the effort involved in drum tuning and in the difficulty of obtaining a good sound, and decided to do something about it. “Acoustic measurements and experimentation helped us gain an understanding of the physical behavior of 2-headed drums. We then applied advanced signal-processing techniques used in Radar, Sonar and Communication Systems to the problem and developed algorithms applicable to drum frequency measurement. These algorithms were efficiently implemented using the latest micro-electronic technology resulting in an accurate, easy-to-use, portable drum tuner: the Tune-Bot.”
