Roadie 3 isn’t just your regular tuner. It is an all-in-one tool that comes with a built-in string winder and metronome.
Restringing with Roadie 3
String changes are a little less tedious now. Roadie 3 will now very quickly wind your new string to tension with a motor speed of 120 RPM and then tune it up, all in one smooth step!
Here’s how to do it:
- Navigate to Main Menu > Winder and use the winder to remove your old string
- To restring and tune in one step, navigate back to Main Menu > Tuner > Select your instrument > Select the note corresponding to the new string > Click and hold the right button on the navigation pad and Roadie 3 will automatically tighten your string
- When the string is not loose anymore and can vibrate then stop pressing and pluck normally to continue tuning. Be careful not to snap the string by tightening it too much
Using the metronome
Roadie 3 now comes with a built-in vibration/beep metronome to help you keep a tight rhythm.
To use the metronome:
- Turn on your Roadie
- Scroll down to Metronome and right-click
To modify the metronome settings, press the right navigation button to access the metronome settings menu. Navigate up and down the menu to select your preference and then hit the left navigation button to exit.
You can change the BPM value, press the up or down navigation buttons while in the metronome screen.
