Roadie 3 helps you find your sound fast and keep your tunings dead-on, every time.
Following the success of the Roadie 2 automatic guitar tuner in 2017 as the most funded music accessory in the history of crowdfunding, Band Industries is set to release an updated version of its product – Roadie 3.
Roadie 3 is planned to launch in the second quarter of 2020 with some exciting updates which make this automatic tuner even more impressive than its predecessor. With favorable Roadie 2 reviews from publications such as Guitar World, Ultimate Guitar and The Verge, we can’t wait to hear what reviewers will be saying after experiencing the progress achieved with Roadie 3.
“The feedback, learnings and knowledge gained over the past two years have been highly instructive in shaping Roadie 3 into an automatic tuner that we are extremely proud to be releasing to the music industry.”, says CTO and co-founder Bassam Jalgha.
About Roadie 3
Roadie 3 is an automatic tuner with a motor twice as fast as Roadie 2, reaching a speed of 120 RPM. It is built on next generation vibration detection and delivers improved tuning accuracy and enhanced noise immunity. Roadie 3 allows musicians to tune any string instrument with geared pegs in just seconds, wherever they are. This includes electric, acoustic, classical and steel guitars, 7, 8 and 12-string guitars, ukuleles, banjos, mandolins, and more, with the exception of the electric bass which can be tuned using Roadie Bass.
Beyond making standard tuning more efficient through its redesigned navigation and favorite buttons, Roadie 3 conveniently provides the ability to explore alternate tunings quicker. It comes with as many as 50 built-in tunings and the possibility to even create your own. Not only is tuning made easier with Roadie 3, so are string changes! Roadie 3 will wind your new string to tension then tune it up, all in one smooth step.
In short, as says the CEO and co-founder Hassane Slaibi, “Roadie 3 will help you save time, explore more music and truly enjoy tuning your instruments. Your musical world is full of possibilities. Bring your Roadie 3 and play on.”
How is Roadie 3 different from Roadie 2?
Roadie 3 now features quicker rotation and improved accuracy allowing musicians to tune their instruments faster and better. Despite these advancements, aesthetics were not compromised. In fact, Roadie 3 now sports an even more compact design that fits comfortably in your hand, pocket or kit bag. Users can now see their options clearly and make quick selections on Roadie 3’s new full color high resolution screen, with a size twice as large as Roadie 2’s screen and a 135 x 240 pixel matrix that displays animations beautifully. The screen is now also better placed, allowing increased visibility while tuning and dynamic display of the strings’ frequency. This time around, the creators also included a vibrating metronome feature to help musicians keep a tight rhythm while playing!
