Planet Waves Apps Price Drop
Planet Waves is cutting prices for its iPhone applications in 2011.
Originally priced at $8.99, Guitar Tools will be reduced to $1.99. Newly updated to support the graphics of the Retina display, Guitar Tools is a hand-held utility kit for guitar players. You can enjoy the functionality of the Chordmaster and Scale Wizard apps, the core features of ProTune and ProTempo, plus reference tools designed to make it easy to find the nearest music store or instructor.
Originally priced at $1.99, Chordmaster will be reduced to $0.99. Planet Waves' Chordmaster makes available a library of about 7,800 guitar chords. Featuring a virtual fretboard that displays notes and fingerings, Chordmaster is designed to allow users to view chords in multiple neck positions and strum virtual strings to hear each chord in digital audio. Chords are organized by Root, Chord Type and Chord Variants. Chordmaster also offers a “lefty” mode for the left-handed guitarist.
Originally priced at $1.99, Scale Wizard will be reduced to $0.99. Scale Wizard is a complete guitar scale, mode, and arpeggio library in the palm of your hand. Offering over 10,000 patterns, left-handed view and alternate tunings, Scale Wizard is the most complete scale application on any platform. With an interface truly optimized for iPhone and iPod touch, the swipe of a finger up and down the fretboard allows one the user to hear ascending and descending scales or individual notes by tapping the screen.
Originally priced at $3.99, ProTempo will be reduced to $0.99. ProTempo is a digital metronome for the musician’s iPhone or iPod Touch. It features a touch-screen Tap feature to dial up a basic click-based tempo, and a "create and save customized rhythm patterns" feature using ProTempo's controls. You can choose from a set of sound samples that can be assigned and balanced within a single pattern. You can adjust parameters including meter, accents, subdivisions and more. With adjustable settings for difficulty and sensitivity, the Tempo Coach feature can listen to the user and indicate how accurately each beat is hit.
Originally priced at $3.99, ProTune will be reduced to $0.99. ProTune turns iPhone or iPod touch into the portable instrument tuner. Dedicated modes for guitar, bass, violin, banjo and other stringed instruments offer pitch measurement on a handheld platform. Whether using the iPhone's built-in microphone, an external mic, or connecting your instrument directly to the iPhone, there are three interfaces — Strobe, Needle or Digital — and ProTune captures the pitch of each string in real time.
