Yousician works with any real 4-string bass. You can use acoustic, electric and electroacoustic bass in standard E, A, D, 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.
1. Make sure to:
a) tune your bass with the in-app tuner. If you tune your bass with a different tuner, you may have recognition issues in Yousician.
2. Check that the app volume or background noise is not too loud. Try connecting wired headphones, without a built-in microphone, to your device.
3. Make sure you:
a) allowed Yousician to access your device microphone.
b) Check the Advanced audio settings option under Game tab. Ensure your device microphone shows green under the Input device.
c) Check your PC/Mac microphone input as it could be too low:
4. Double check your bass set up.
5. For Android devices, try re-calibrating audio from the Advanced audio settings in the Game tab. You can also change audio driver to Android Audio/Android OpenSL and lower the buffer size. When you select AAudio driver, it adjusts the buffer automatically.
7. Try turning off effects on your electric bass as these can affect recognition. Use as clear sound as you can to get the best recognition.
