Yousician ukulele works with any real 4-string concert and soprano ukuleles, be it acoustic, electric or electroacoustic, in standard tuning. You can also use Yousician with a tenor ukulele, by changing the G string and tuning it to high G tuning.
If you are having problems with recognition, check these tips to troubleshoot. They are listed in order. Start with the first one and if it doesn’t help, continue to the next one.
- Make sure you tune your ukulele with the in-app tuner. If you tune your ukulele with a different tuner, you may have recognition issues in Yousician.
- Check that the app volume or background noise is not too loud. Try connecting wired headphones, without a built in microphone, to your device.
- Make sure you have allowed Yousician to access your device microphone:
- Double check your ukulele set up.
- Check Advanced audio settings option under Settings → Game tab. Ensure your device microphone shows green under Input device.
- For Android devices, try re-calibrating audio. You can also lower the buffer size and change audio engines to Android Audio. The options are available under Advanced settings in the Settings → Game tab.
- If you are using an audio interface, check that you have chosen it as Input device. You can do so from the Advanced audio settings option in the Settings → Game tab.
- Try turning off effects on your electric ukulele as these can affect recognition. Use as clear sound as you can to get the best recognition.
- Check your PC/Mac microphone input as it could be too low.
