A nice android app for turntable speed!

Post by chiwahua » 13 Aug 2019 01:29

I just wanted to share with you that there's a nice super simple app on android to see how stable is your turntable speed and it shows you on a graph of maybe 10 seconds.

I have no affiliation whatsoever: it's been super useful to me and maybe you didn't know that it existed.

The app name is "RPM speed and wow". You put your phone on the platter and the speed is displayed.

If you have speed issues, this app could be useful to you as well.

I use the strobe disc which came with my turntable. Works perfectly.

That said, I still keep my savings in a sock.

I have that app and, on my phone at least, it matches a strobe disk.

Sorry, I didn't know it was already discussed and when I searched from "RPM speed and wow" nothing came up so that's why the post..

I use it too and it's much more informative than just a strobe disc. It's a helpful tool, and it's free. And it works. But you only really need it once for each 'table. :wink: That's why it's so great that it's free.
