HARMAN's HardWire™ today announced the introduction of its HT6
FastTune Tuner app for iPod, iPhone and iPad. The HT6 FastTune app
enables those devices to function as a polyphonic tuner, letting
guitar and bass players tune all their strings at once.
The HT6 FastTune Tuner app is based on the popular HardWire HT-6
Polyphonic Tuner floor pedal, which makes tuning instruments faster
and easier by allowing the musician to simply strum all the strings
at once, and view the display to see which strings are in or out of
tune. The app works using the iPod, iPhone or iPad mic input, and
it can also operate by plugging an instrument into the device's
headphone input or 30-pin connection. The FastTune app can be
used with a guitar or four, five or six string bass.
The HT6 FastTune Tuner app provides an immediate visual
indication of which strings are in tune, sharp or flat, and its
display can be set to either polyphonic mode, or chromatic tuning
mode if desired. The app offers automatic capo detection - it
senses if a guitarist has a capo on the neck and adjusts the
display to tune to the correct chord. Adding to its appeal, the app
offers a Drop-D tuning mode for users of this popular alternate
"The HardWire HT6 FastTune Tuner app is the most advanced guitar
and bass tuning app available for any mobile device," noted Rob
Urry, vice president and GM, Harman Signal Processing. "It makes
the same industry-leading chord recognition technology found in our
HT-6 Polyphonic Tuner pedal available to any iOS device, for
super-fast, accurate, on-the-go tuning."
The HardWire HT6 FastTune app for iOS will be available in
February 2012 from the iTunes Store® at a suggested
retail price of $4.99.
