The HT6 FastTuneTuner 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.
HardWire say that the HT6 FastTuneTuner 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 setting.
Rob Urry, vice president and GM, Harman Signal Processing, told us, "The HardWire HT6 FastTune Tuner app is the most advanced guitar and bass tuning app available for any mobile device. 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."
Pricing and Availability:
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.
Meh! a Polytune rip-off. how original. TC did this over a year ago and now there are already 2 copycats in the market for polychromatic tuning. I stick with the original...

Since moving back to California, my erntie life's focus has been the pursuit of my artistic vision. I have been writing prolifically, in the Kerouacian tradition, and Brautigan has been central in a string of coincidences that have all contributed to my confidence concerning the path that I am on and the certainty that it is the right one.I find myself on this page, making this comment because of yet another improbable string of hyperlinks. While researching my current Brautigan-centered book, I learned of the birth of the beats in SF, where my research is centered. A hyperlink with the name of the 6 Gallery was the only one that I clicked on, as it was contained in the sentence, The reading at the Six Gallery caused a literary sensation and introduced the idea of the Beat Generation to the world. That click brought me to the litkicks.com website, where I was taken aback by the fact that the Today in Literature section read as follows: On January 30: Jack Spicer Shirley Hazzard Richard Brautigan Read more Clicking on the link Read more brought me to a page that said, On January 30th 1/30/1925: Jack Spicer born.Poet Jack Spicer is born in 1925.1/30/1931: Shirley Hazzard born.Australian/American novelist and short story writer Shirley Hazzard is born in 1931.1/30/1935: Richard Brautigan born.Washington-born tragic hippie-surrealist author Richard Brautigan is born in 1935. Clicking on Richard Brautigan's name brought forth yet another litkicks page, a very informative biography on the man, at the conclusion of which, two links. One I was familiar with, as The Abortion: An Historical Romance, 1966 had inspired it, and this one.Here I am, living the dream, pursuing the artistic adherance that Brautigan perpetuated, continuing to be amazed by the man, his influence, and the Romantic Possiblity of a Public Library in California.
