Android based tuner app that gives audible feedback ?

I wonder if there is an android based tuner app that also gives you audible feedback.
Most tuners give you a visual feedback, the needle that goes up and down when you play flat or sharp.
It would be interesting to have an app that also detects the note you play, and plays it in the correct pitch, so you can correct your pitch also by ear.
I think this would be useful to practice listening by ear, and blending in with others.

I quickly tested DA tuner, but it is nearly inaudible, they also ask a high yearly fee and seem to want to charge you to buy all kinds of extras, so I did not trust it to give them my credit card data.
Total energy does not seem to have a preview function, so not possible to test it before buying.
I am using sound corset at this moment, and it is great.

The only thing it is missing for me is the capability to play back the note you are playing on the saxophone, in the correct pitch, so you can adjust it with your embouchure while playing.
What I mean is, suppose you play a middle E, which is a little flat, the device should detect that you are playing middle E, and play it back just in tune, so you are able to hear the difference
with what you play yourself and what the tuner is playing back
So the aim is to first tune the saxophone correctly on one note, and then start playing scales and arpeggios and hear and at the same time correct your embouchure to be perfectly in tune with the note comming from the tuner.

There are some vocal effect boxes that correct the pitch of a singer, and some singers even use this feature as a special effect

Here you hear the result when to tones are not in tune.
Actually DA Tuner now costs 15.99 per year, and when you try to use some features, an in app buy screen appears asking for more money.

I'll give TE tuner a go and see how it works, thanks for the tips.
