  • If you select 'anywhere in tune' be warned that you will get a lot of matches, unless you are using a long sequence of notes.

Key signature

Transpose while searching? No
  • If you take the 'No' option then TUNEdb will just look for the ABCs as you entered them.
  • If you take the 'Yes' option TUNEdb will transpose the notes you entered into all keys before searching the database but you must enter the key signature (above) so that TUNEdb knows which key to start transposing from.
