The Tone Zone - ChordPulse app for Windows

If you play guitar, at some point, you’re going to need a tuner. While there are a variety of stompboxes, headstock attachments, and apps that will do the job perfectly, few of them offer polyphonic tuning (where you can strum and tune all 6 strings at the same time). Trust me, this handy feature will save you a lot of time and keep your guitar in tune during a hard night out jamming.

FastTune HT-6 App

At GuitarZoom, one of our favorite polyphonic tuners is the FastTune HT-6 app for iPhone. Here, Steve Stine will give you a brief overview of how it works.

The FastTune HT-6 app gives you access to both chromatic and polyphonic tuning modes. Which means, you can tune guitar strings individually (which is essential if you’re playing in an alternate tuning) or simultaneously by strumming all 6 strings and correcting the pitch.

The good news is this FREE app works with all your acoustic, electric, and bass guitars. And you can tune up on-the-fly using your device mic input, headphone jack, or 30-pin input. It also features an easy-to-read display that uses a familiar guitar tab layout, so you won’t get confused about which strings are flat or sharp.

Overall, the FastTune HT-6 is a dynamic polyphonic tuner that you should download to your mobile device so you always have an accurate tuner. Be sure to check it out today in the app store.
