bizarre Bluetooth issues

I have been using TET for a while now, and really love it.  Just this morning I decided to try setting up a Bluetooth system in my band room.  Everything went as expected, and it seems to be working with all my apps EXCEPT Tonal Energy.  Here's the weird part:  It actually does work with TET for about a minute, then it shuts down, and TET becomes completely unresponsive.  I tried uninstalling and re-installing the tuner, and again it worked for about a minute or so, then crashed the app.  Once crashed, the app seems unable to recover, and must be deleted and re-installed.

When I look in settings, I did set TET to output only, and the Bluetooth device does show up with a check mark next to it, and it DOES work - for a while.

Any ideas/solutions?

Bluetooth problem and met issue

I had the same problem. I am using a bluetooth speaker with the Tonal Energy App. After a short while the sound gets really soft and the sound stops working.

In addition, the sound of the metronome changes. It goes to a lower tone after using it for a short while on the bluetooth speaker. Can I get help?

Re: bizarre Bluetooth issues

Can both of you report the devices and iOS versions of the those devices here?  Also the name and model of the bluetooth speakers/receivers might also be helpful.

Thanks!  Incidentally, an update to TET is coming very soon...

iPad 2 with ios 6.0.1

Sony HWS-BTA2W

Also, I have been using this daily for about a month.  I can get TET to work perfectly for hours as long as I don't get out of it - once I get out of it (to use another app, etc.), the Bluetooth doesn't work.   In order to get the Bluetooth working again, I have to do a reboot of the iPad.

Re: bizarre Bluetooth issues

Thanks for the heads up, I was able to reproduce and fix the issue!  I do wish Apple would allow bluetooth output to work in conjunction with internal microphone input and obviate the need for the Output Only mode, but alas they still haven't made this possible.

I plan to submit the next version in the next few days.

Re: bizarre Bluetooth issues

Glad to hear there's a fix. Thanks SO much. Tonal Energy and Bluetooth have changed the way I rehearse!

I've noticed no problems in audio consistency, but when I exit TET to take roll I have to force quit TET and redo the audio preferences to get it back to the Bluetooth output.  Ipad 2 with the latest OS and Belkin receiver. 

Thanks again for the great app. Next on my to do list is getting a midi keyboard plugged in

Re: bizarre Bluetooth issues

Go the Prefs tab, then Audio Options, and enable the Output Only setting. You won't be able to use the tuner while that option is enabled, but it should allow the output to go to your bluetooth receiver.
