Presonus Tuner not working

Only with some drums and percussion(not all), the tuner won't show me what key the samples are in when playing the notes.

Some sample packs work just fine no problems, others show nothing.

Anyone else have this issue???

yeah, the stock tuner is pretty bad. Ableton's, Logic's or third-party (I happen to own Polytune plugin) tuner will blow it away, but the stock one is not really usable.

we already have a feature request for the better tuner, check it out and vote: http://answers.presonus.com/14462/better-tuner?show=14462#q14462

I always check drum tuning with the Spectrum Analyzer, or even better with SPAN from Voxengo as the built-in spectrum analyzer seems strangely inaccurate sometimes.
