Electronic Tuner - Intellitouch Tuner - History


The Intellitouch Tuner model PT1 was created in 1995 by Mark Wilson of OnBoard Research Corporation. At the time it was created, it was the first of its kind, and a huge leap of innovation. Using a musical instrument's vibrations to measure pitch by a device that attaches by a clip had never been done before. It allowed for tuning in noisy environments or on dark stages while other musicians were playing. The Intellitouch PT1 eventually became extremely popular and spawned an entire industry of clip-on instrument tuners.

In January 2011, OnBoard Research created yet another innovation, a fully chromatic tuner with the displayed note, integrated with a capo. They also introduced North America's first rechargeable tuner, the Intellitouch PT40, in January 2011.

The manufacturer of Intellitouch tuners, OnBoard Research Corporation, has introduced many new models of Intellitouch tuners since the company's start in 1995. The Intellitouch PT10 and PT10XL were introduced in 2009. The Intellitouch PT30 Classic was introduced in 2010. The PT40 Rechargeable Tuner, the CT1 Capo Tuner, and the PT20 Compact Classic Tuner were all introduced in January, 2011.

Famous quotes containing the word history:

    Racism is an ism to which everyone in the world today is exposed; for or against, we must take sides. And the history of the future will differ according to the decision which we make.
    Ruth Benedict (1887–1948)

    The second day of July 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more
    John Adams (1735–1826)

    I believe that history might be, and ought to be, taught in a new fashion so as to make the meaning of it as a process of evolution intelligible to the young.
    Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–95)
