As an amateur guitarist I am keen to try various guitar tuners. Recently I came across an app called DoubleTune, a cool tuner app for a variety of string instrument. The app has unique Tune Guard mode that promises to keep string safe and protect from snapping.
Besides that, there is an educational section in the app that let’s beginner users learn chords and train musical hearing. The app is free and available for iOS and compatible with iPhone only for now. Let’s dig deeper and see what DoubleTune has to offer in more details.
I would not call myself professional guitarist but I have used quite few tuner apps available out there to say with confidence that the accuracy of DoubleTune let’s you tune your guitar to perfect pitch.
Easy and safe tuning
DoubleTune offers a variety of tuning options – auto, Tune Guard, chromatic and manual. Auto tuning would be the fastest option for musicians – the app automatically detects the string that is played and tells you to turn the peg until the string is in tune. It takes a minute to tune the instrument and you can start playing it.
Another interesting tuning option that you might spot already is Tune Guard. This is the one that suits best beginner players who worry about snapping strings during tuning process. The app alarms users with visual signals – a message, highlighted string that is in danger to break and red colour screen that changes from dark to bright – when the string is too tight and about to snap. This is quite cool and definitely unique tuning options that I’ve never seen before in any other tuner apps.
Not only for guitars
The app is not limited to tuning guitars. You can also use DoubleTune for tuning ukulele, banjo, cello, viola, mandolin, fiddle and balalaika.
Fun games to learn chords
The app has educational section where you can practice and improve your chord knowledge. There are three mini games that helps learn chords, learn chords diagrams and improve musical hearing by recognising the chords. All of them made in a form of a quiz and each game level is limited by time. The clever thing about them is repetitive scenario that help learn faster.
The app has no ads for seamless user experience. It is free to download, though selected tuning sets and game levels are locked and available as in-app purchase. You can invest in All-in-One in-app purchase to unlock all app features.
DoubleTune is developed by Gismart, a music app maker with over 160 million downlo Gismart apps and games often appeared in music and games top charts.
