Nowadays, you can learn to play any instrument with the help of technology. Roadie Music is one such music company that had its inaugural product release in 2013 of Roadie Tuner. Since then, they have kept on producing innovative tools for musicians under their brand, Roadie Music, all due to the founders’ combined passions for music and tech.
Now, the company released a brand new software and hardware solution with useful features — the Roadie Coach. This device is made for people who want to learn how to play stringed instruments.
The best thing about the Roadie Coach is that it can work on ukuleles, guitars, and vocals. Simply place it on the peg and start plucking. It can teach you strum patterns, tabs, and chords at various speeds if you’re practicing a song.
You can even backtrack your recorded practice with the Roadie Coach until you can perform it on your own thanks to its critical visual feedback that lets you analyze and understand your performance. It can also provide you with practice metrics, specific exercises, tutorials, and tips, allowing you to improve more.
What’s even better is the Roadie Coach’s intuitive LED touch interface. This lets you see the song progress and interact with other elements while playing the instrument. Apart from that, the device also has a mic that can capture and store your voice if you’re singing while playing an instrument. You can easily access your performance sessions if you want to review them.
They also have other interesting products like the Roadie tuners, for instance, the Roadie 2. For performing musicians, you can bring the Roadie tuners everywhere because of their portability like the Jammy Guitar. Their vibration sensing technology can still accurately tune your instruments, making it ideal even when you’re playing in loud environments.
You also don’t need to worry about its battery life as it won’t quickly drain. Roadie tuners supposedly have a battery life that can last for about a month. This means it can tune 150 strings on a single charge.
You can use Roadie Coach even without a mobile phone. This means it can tune alone even when you don’t use its Roadie Tuner app. But if you want to customize your tuning experience and access more features, installing the free app may be a good option. You can easily sync your app’s settings on the Roadie device so you can be sure that your instrument is in tune.
While the going retail price for the Roadie Coach is $199, those who want to pre-order it now will get a discount, bringing down the price to $169. The device is scheduled to be shipped out starting in October 2022.
