Band Industries, the company behind the innovative Roadie automatic tuner, has announced their latest and greatest product, the Roadie Coach, which is a “music tutor, recorder, and MIDI control” device for guitarists.

For the past 6 years, the Roadie team has been working on perfecting their vibration detection technology, and it seems it’s finally ready for the big stage. “As we developed Roadie 2, Roadie Bass, and Roadie 3, we asked ourselves, ‘What can we learn by leaving our sensor on the instrument while playing rather than just while tuning the guitar?’ The answer was an absolute deluge of new data points and from this, the idea for Roadie Coach was born.”

The Roadie Coach uses notes and lyrical information from a song you are learning to compare your performance against the original piece. This provides a robust and high-quality data pool and ensures the Roadie Coach is truly giving you feedback that will lead you towards mastery. It’s an activity tracker (like Fitbit) for your musical journey that helps keep you motivated and driven by data.

The Roadie Coach can assist with acoustic and electric guitar, ukulele, and singing at almost any level. There is no existing talent or knowledge needed to get started with Coach. While seasoned players will love perfecting tracks they have been playing for a while, even the greenest of greenhorns among us will find the process of picking up, tuning, and playing the guitar for the first time much less intimidating with Roadie Coach by their side.

The Coach tracks your playing and gives you dynamic feedback on how you are improving. It will help you learn to play your favorite songs step by step until you can perform the original tracks in full. Along the way, Coach will suggest areas of focus that are specific to your needs. Not sure how to hold your instrument? Need help with the string names? Or how to position your fingers? Coach has got you covered, from the bottom to the top.
