You can play Yousician ukulele 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.
Set up with your device microphone
With an acoustic ukulele, or an electroacoustic one, place your device in a comfortable spot. The built-in microphone in your device picks up the sounds you play. Double check, that you have allowed Yousician access to your device microphone. We also recommend connecting headphones, without a built-in microphone, to your device. Doing so helps improve recognition.
Set up with your ukulele connected
If you run into recognition issues, or want to play electric ukulele without disturbing others, you can connect your electric or electroacoustic ukulele to your device. You can do so, for example, with a device compatible audio interface or a 1/4" to USB instrument cable (desktop). Note: If your Mac doesn't have regular sized USB ports, you may need a USB C to B adapter. If your audio interface comes with drivers, make sure to install them as well. You can find more suggested options here.
To set up an electric or electroacoustic ukulele with an audio interface:
- Connect your ukulele to the interface and the interface to your device.
- After your ukulele is connected, you might need to change the input device. You can change it in-app, via the Advanced settings option under the Settings → Game tab.
If your audio interface does not show up in the Advanced settings, check the "Audio MIDI setup" if you are using a Mac. Also make sure to turn up the volume to your ukulele. You can see if it works by observing the MIC/ VU meter while playing the ukulele in the tuner screen.
With your ukulele connected, adjust the Mixer feature from the in song pause menu to hear yourself play.
