About the Soundbrenner Core
Introducing Soundbrenner Core; a Smart Vibrating Metronome, Contact Tuner and dB Meter in one powerful, multipurpose watch. The Core is built to go wherever your music takes you so you can focus on playing better; anytime, anywhere.
1. Vibrating Metronome – The vibrating metronome allows musicians to actually feel the beat, replacing the intrusive audible “click” with vibrations 7x stronger than the average smartwatch and powered by a 7G ERM Motor. It can be used stand-alone or in synchronization with up to 5 devices worn by other musicians. The vibrating metronome is based on Soundbrenner’s first product, the Pulse, which has been sold more than 70,000 times and is now available in music in stores in over 45+ countries.
2. Magnetic Contact Tuner – The Core twists off from its base and magnetically attaches to any guitar, bass guitar, ukulele, or violin. Thanks to its built-in piezo contact microphone, the Core is capable of detecting micro-vibrations from the strings and provide accurate tuning, even in the noisiest environments. The signature Soundbrenner LED ring serves as a guide that uses color indicators to help the musician tune to the right note.
3. dB Meter – With the goal to minimize the risk of hearing impairment that musicians are exposed to, the Core introduces a decibel meter that’s always with you. It monitors the surrounding volume levels and alerts the user when they are exposed to levels that can become potentially harmful.
4. Watch – The device also serves as an everyday watch. It is capable of receiving push and call notifications from a user’s iOS or Android smartphone.
