TC Electronic's new iPhone/iPad/iPod touch version of the revolutionary PolyTune guitar tuner will be available on the App Store very soon…
The first 25,000 copies of the PolyTune™ iPhone App will be free of charge – after that it will cost $9.99. TC Electronic Facebook fans, Twitter followers and subscribers to the TC Electronic Guitar Newsletter will be the first to know exactly when the PolyTune™ iPhone App is available on the App Store.
The PolyTune™ iPhone App is a 1:1 port of the award-winning PolyTune™ pedal tuner, and it offers the exact same tuning technology and amazing features.
TC Electronic revolutionized guitar tuning at a stroke – or strum – with PolyTune™, the world’s first polyphonic guitar tuner. This cutting-edge tuning technology revolutionizes tuning and accomplishes what has
been deemed impossible until now: tuning all strings simultaneously.
PolyTune™ obviously has a chromatic tuner as well, rivaling the best current tuning technology out there with an amazing +/- 0.5 cent accuracy.
MonoPoly, another unique, new TC Electronic technology, recognizes whether one or more strings are being played and seamlessly switches between the polyphonic or the chromatic tuner on the fly.
When using the The PolyTune™ iPhone App with an iPhone or an iPad, the internal microphone allows for instant tuning of acoustic guitars, but for tuning electric guitars, a converter cable (mini Jack connector to female 1/4" Jack connector) is required.
The original PolyTune™ pedal was introduced at the 2010 NAMM Show and has since won critical acclaim from professional reviewers and users all over the world. Guitarists everywhere have embraced TC Electronic’s revolutionary tuning philosophy and now, with the new PolyTune™ for iPhone, they will be able to do so anywhere, anytime.
Put simply, the PolyTune™ iPhone App turns a regular iPhones into a lean, mean, tuning-machine!
PolyTune™ iPhone app main features:
* Polyphonic Tuner – Tune all strings simultaneously – simply Strum, Tune, Rock!
* Chromatic Tuner – Ultra fast and steady response, Needle and Stream display modes with +/- 0.5 cent accuracy
* Drop-tunings – Dropped tunings from E-flat down to B supported in Polyphonic mode
* Works with both guitar and bass – Both Polyphonic and Chromatic mode works for both Guitar and 4-, 5- and 6-string Bass.
