Planet Waves Massively Discounting iPhone Apps for Guitarists

I received an email this morning from Planet Waves with a list of their iPhone Apps which they are slashing prices on.

They didn’t say what the reason is for these large price cuts, but I’m guessing it’s to do with the fact that there are a huge number of guitar related iOS apps out there – many of them free – so this is supply and demand at work.

Guitar Tools – Price has gone down from $8.99 to $1.99. It features Chordmaster and Scale Wizard apps, the core features of ProTune and ProTempo, plus reference tools that make it easy to find the nearest music store or instructor wherever you may roam.

Chordmaster – Price has gone down from $1.99 to $0.99. It’s a hand-held guitar chord library with over 7,800 chords and features a virtual fretboard that accurately displays notes and fingerings, Chordmaster allows users to view chords in multiple neck positions and strum virtual strings to hear each chord in pristine digital audio. Chords are organized by Root, Chord Type and Chord Variants to allow fast, easy navigation. Chordmaster even offers a “lefty” mode for the oft-ignored left-handed guitarist.

Scale Wizard – Price has gone down from $1.99 to $0.99. A comprehensive guitar scale, mode, and arpeggio library with over 10,000 scale, mode and arpeggio shapes.

ProTempo – Price has gone down from $3.99 to $0.99. Essentially this is a digital metronome, but with a lot of added features: Tap feature to dial up a basic click-based tempo instantly, and a create and save customized rhythm patterns feature using ProTempo’s richly detailed controls. Choose from a set of high-quality sound samples that can be assigned and balanced within a single pattern. 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.

ProTune – Price has gone down from $3.99 to $0.99. A digital tuner. Whether using the iPhone’s built-in microphone, an external mic, or connecting your instrument directly to the iPhone, there are three beautifully designed interfaces — Strobe, Needle or Digital — and ProTune precisely captures the pitch of each string in real time. Presets include chromatic and standard tunings as well as common alternate tunings such as Drop D, DADGAD and Open G and you can create and save your own.
