Agile Partners Announces GuitarToolkit 2.0

Featuring All-New iPad Version and GuitarToolkit+ Upgrade for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch

Agile Partners today announced GuitarToolkit 2.0, featuring an all-new iPad version that is free for existing GuitarToolkit users and the GuitarToolkit+ Upgrade, an in-app purchase that adds Chord Sheets, Custom Instruments, and Advanced Metronome.

One of the App Store's top-rated apps for guitar players, GuitarToolkit was introduced on the opening day of the App Store in July, 2008 and has received thousands of five-star ratings from customers around the world. Recognized as an iPhone Hall of Fame inductee, GuitarToolkit on iPhone, iPod touch, and now iPad is a collection of essential tools for guitar players: an extremely accurate tuner, a precision metronome, an extensive library of chords, scales and arpeggios, standard and alternate tunings, and more. In addition to 6, 7 and 12-string guitar, GuitarToolkit also supports 4, 5 and 6-string bass, banjo, mandolin and ukulele, with chords, scales, arpeggios and alternate tunings for each instrument.

Among GuitarToolkit's biggest benefits is its massive library of over two million chords, 924 scales with more than 16 million playable scale positions, and 71 arpeggio types with over two million positions. Chords, scales and arpeggios are available not only for standard EADGBE guitar tuning, but also for alternate tunings (over 60 for guitar alone), and users can create their own custom tunings. Full capo support means that users can now enable and slide a capo to any fret and the chords, scales and arpeggios automatically adapt. Chords, scales and arpeggios can be shown with notes or intervals, as well as finger positions for chords. Users can strum chords and touch scale and arpeggio notes to hear what they sound like. With Chord, Scale and Arpeggio Finders, users can touch notes on the fretboard and GuitarToolkit will identify matching chords, scales and arpeggios. iPad users can even jump between scales or arpeggios and matching chords with a single tap.

The new GuitarToolkit+ in-app purchase adds Custom Instruments, allowing users to create a virtual collection of instruments within GuitarToolkit that matches their real-world instruments and playing styles. Users choose instrument type (6, 7 and 12-string guitar, 4, 5 and 6-string bass, banjo, mandolin or ukulele), string and pickup type (e.g., acoustic/nylon or electric/humbucker), fretboard texture, and a unique instrument icon. The instrument can be assigned a name, a tuning (e.g, standard, predefined alternate, or custom), and a capo can be added if desired. Even the audio tone is customizable: GuitarToolkit+ starts with high-quality recorded samples for each instrument / string / pickup type, and then processes that audio through any of over 60 amp/effects presets powered by Agile Partners' AmpKit tone engine and tailored for both acoustic and electric guitars.

"The GuitarToolkit+ in-app purchase also takes the GuitarToolkit metronome to a completely new level," added Berry. GuitarToolkit comes with a precision metronome with a visible flash option, a tempo tap pad, 25 sound effects, and 22 time signatures. The new GuitarToolkit+ in-app purchase enables users to unlock an Advanced Metronome with a powerful drum machine. "Each custom drum pattern can include as many as 32 tracks and users can set the drum pattern's time signature, designate the number of bars, and select from a total of 75 sounds in 9 different categories: drum kit, cymbals, hand percussion, metronome, orchestral, bells, African, Latin, Electronic." The Advanced Metronome is available today on iPad and coming soon to iPhone and iPod touch.

One of GuitarToolkit's most popular tools is the highly accurate chromatic tuner. The tuner can be set for standard tuning, all notes, common alternate tunings or any custom tuning that the user sets. A high-contrast mode on iPhone and a full-screen mode on iPad can be turned on for easy viewing of the tuner at all times.

GuitarToolkit is available for US$9.99 in the iTunes App Store. The new version of GuitarToolkit for iPad is free for current users of GuitarToolkit. The GuitarToolkit+ in-app purchase that enables users to turn on interactive Chord Sheets, Custom Instruments, and Advanced Metronome is available for only US$4.99.
