Tune in with Karang; world's first free multi-string guitar tuner app

Press Release October 11, 2018

While Chordify helps musicians worldwide to hit the right chord, Karang keeps them tuned in. The freshly released Karang app for iOS, is the first free multi-string guitar tuner in the world. Created by the world’s leading audio engineers, Karang enables guitarists to tune all strings at once.

In one single strum, Karang detects which strings are out of tune. Combining clean design with the world's best sound recognition algorithm, Karang is easy to use and super accurate. Compared to other tuners, where you hit strings separately, Karang enables guitarists to tune faster than ever.

The brand-new Karang app is designed to help both beginners and professionals to tune fast and jam more. Perfected for the acoustic guitar and equipped with noise-cancelling technology, Karang also works in crowded areas. This way Karang assists guitarists during rehearsals as well as live gigs. The name Karang is inspired by the sound of strumming a guitar.
