    Hey Joseph,

    Apologies for the late reply! Are you using the Mac or iPad version of the app? Tabular should have a built-in bass tuning, but if it's missing for some reason, you should be able to create a new one yourself. If you're using the Mac version, you can create a bass tuning using the tuning editor in the track form.

    If you're using the iPad version, you need the Tabular+ in-app purchase to create a new tuning. Let me know if you don't have it, and I can email you a code to unlock it so you can recreate the missing tuning.

    Sorry for the inconvenience!

    Hello Jarod, I'm using the iPad version and I've purchased the upgraded version. The problem started when I deleted the app to open up space for another app that required the space. Then I reinstalled the app and restored the upgraded. I've done this twice and the other instrument tuning options are not there. Only guitar.

    I see -- it looks like there may be a bug with preserving tunings when deleting and reinstalling the app. I'll look into it -- in the mean time, unfortunately you'll need to recreate the tunings that you want to use.

    On the iPad version, since you have the upgrade, when you create a new track you should see a Manage Tunings button on the right side of the tuning field. If you tap that and then hit the + button at the top-right of the next screen, you should be able to create and add a new bass tuning.
