The massive-noggined boffins at TC Electronics have just released an incremental version of PolyTune for iPhone.
You’ve probably all read about the PolyTune tuner pedal – the world’s first polyphonic tuner. Strum all strings together and the clever gubbins in the pedal shows the tuning situation of each of your six stings. You can easily tell if one or more strings is out of tune.
Not content with hammering all that cleverness into a stompbox, TC also ported it to the iPhone. And now, that app is at a 1.1 release. It’s …
This is cool.
Peterson Tuners are (or at least, should be) ubiquitous in the world of professional guitar techs and luthiers. A Peterson strobe tuner – or, more recently, their Virtual Strobe – is the top of the heap when it comes to tuning accuracy. Most tuners that are available to the man (or lady) on the street are reasonably accurate. The emphasis must be on reasonably though. A strobe-type tuner allows you to ‘see’ finer increments of tuning than most LED or needle tuners can realistically display. This is the …
OK, there’s no doubting that this is an interesting idea. Not just an amp in your pocket, it’s potentially a whole slew of amps, speaker cabs, microphones and stompboxes in your pocket.
That’s either a big pocket or AmpliTube’s clever new interface/app combo for iPhone.
The iRig is an external interface that plugs into the headphone socket of your iPhone. It allows you to plug in a standard ¼ inch guitar lead and has a pass-through for your actual headphones.
You make noise on your guitar or bass, it gets processed in the …
Interesting one this.
Remember a while back, TC Electronics released their – rather clever – PolyTune Pedal that allowed you to see the tuning of all six of your guitar’s strings at once. Picking one string at a time is so last year.
Well, now TC are porting their cleverness to the iPhone (and iPod Touch if you’ve got a mic thing attached).
It’s early days yet, but the PolyTune App sounds pretty interesting. In fact, the days are so early that TC are looking for beta testers for the app.

iPhone guitar apps seem to be evolving into more and more complex utilities. We’ve considered just a few of the guitar-related apps before and now we’re looking at Guitarist and Bassist from MooCow Music.
“Never be without your guitar again”, say MooCow Music. It’s a slogan we here at Guitarless can get behind.
MooCow have released Guitarist and Bassist – instrument simulators for your iPhone.
The Guitarist app presents us with something new. While we’ve seen virtual fretboards with strings that can be plucked or sounded before, MooCow go further. Their basic ‘manual-fret’ …

If you’ve got an iPhone, you may be familiar with Agile Partners who previously gave us the, very handy, Guitar Toolkit. It’s also worth knowing, however, that Agile also have an iPhone tablature application that does some very clever things.
TabToolkit (iTunes Store link), which works on the iPhone and iPod Touch allows you to view tabs in Power Tab and Guitar Pro formats as well as text and PDF tab files. If you’re using Power Tab or Guitar Pro, TabToolkit will display the information in both tab and standard musical …

Agile Partners’ GuitarToolkit (iTunes Link) provides a bundle of guitary goodness all wrapped up in the Appley goodness of your iPhone.
First off there’s a tuner. Using the built-in microphone on your iPhone, you can use the GuitarToolkit’s chromatic tuner to sort yourself out. Alternate tunings aren’t an issue and you can even create your own if whatever weird one you’re using isn’t available.
Potentially more useful for guitarists to carry around in their pockets, however, is the scale and chord library. There’s half a million chords squeezed into this thing.
You can …
