If you don’t know about Bass Tuner by Roadie, then you have got to check this app out.
It’s a simple chromatic tuner that is built for all instruments and is optimized to detect lower frequencies, making it ideal for bass guitars, upright bass, cello, as well as electric, acoustic and classical guitars.
Basically, it’s a must-have for any musician and it’s free!
To understand how Bass Tuner by Roadie stands out, it is important to touch on some basic information:
What Are Chromatic Tuners Anyway?
Chromatic Tuners are electronic hardware or software used to detect and display the pitch of notes that are played on musical instruments.
Non-chromatic tuners are typically designed to detect specific notes and tuning schemes that are most common, such as standard tuning (EADGBE). On the other hand, chromatic tuners can detect all twelve notes of the chromatic scale.
As such, they provide musicians with wider flexibility when tuning and are far more versatile. They also read different pitches in all of the different octave ranges.
However, it is inevitable that chromatic tuners may sometimes be unable to detect extreme frequencies that are essential for some instruments. An example is the bass guitar, for low frequencies, and the violin, for high frequencies.
About Bass Tuner by Roadie
The app was developed by the same team of expert musicians who created the revolutionary Roadie Automatic Guitar Tuners, and who specializes in tuning technology.
