The new wearable called Soundbrenner Core combines the accuracy of professional music tools with the convenience of wearable technology. It features all of the most important essential tools, including a vibrating metronome, a magnetic twist tuner, a decibel meter and an everyday watch. It is designed for every musician in the world, from beginner to professional and regardless of the instrument.
“Today’s music tools are so bad, that we don’t use them as often as we should, ultimately making us worse musicians. Instead of using nothing or compromising with basic apps, you can now have the best professional tools always with you at the convenience of your wrist. Any place, any time. It’s the first device that actually gets out of the way, instead of in the way between you and your music,” explains Florian Simmendinger, CEO of Soundbrenner.
