Do I need to use the Roadie Tuner app with the Roadie 2?
Roadie is fully standalone and doesn’t need the app to work. However, the free Roadie Tuner app gives you access to more features and the ability to customize your tuning experience. Using the app, you can change your Roadie’s settings, create your own new tunings and instruments with a more comfortable view. Once you make changes on the app, all you have to do is sync with your Roadie device and you’ll be ready to tune. Our tech team continuously releases new firmware updates through the app that improve Roadie’s performance and keep it up to date with the latest features.
Does Roadie 2 perform well in loud environments?
Roadie 2 uses a vibration sensing technology rather than a microphone to pick up the frequencies of your instrument. This allows it to consistently deliver accurate tuning wherever you are, even in loud environments (perfect for your gigs!). Watch it to believe it
Does Roadie 2 drop tune?
Yes! There are already some preset drop tunings that come built-in your Roadie such as Drop A, Drop B, Drop C and Drop D but you can also create your own custom tunings using the free Roadie Tuner app then sync your Roadie 2 to the app and you’ll have those tunings at your fingertips.
Does it tune with a capo on?
Yes! Go to settings in the Roadie Tuner app and select the option to tune with a capo on then sync and you’re good to go.
How long does the battery last?
Roadie 2 can tune up to 150 strings on a single charge. In human terms, that means the battery can last about a month if you’re tuning one instrument every day.
