I was playing guitar today and realized it wasn't in tune. Instead of tuning it, I just realized, someone should come up with an idea to think of a prototype of a machine that you plug your guitar into that doesn't tune the guitar, but instead adjusts every note individually to the proper note.

It would make so. much. money.

I'm pretty sure Roland did it with their midi pickup system.

IF ONLY SOMEONE COULD THINK OF THE IDEA DAMMIT


It would make harmonies actually sound good live. Because there's not one example, ever, ever ever, of a good sounding live band!

Blake, You may be an idiot, dude. The only way to do this would be to somehow make a guitar that sensed which fret was being pressed. Any other way would still be relative to the tuning of the guitar, and the machine would also have no ability to sense bends, harmonics, etc.

In short, I really hope you are joking or willing to share your drugs.

We only need someone to think of the idea; no need to actually know how to make it.

or you know, get a good bridge, a good nut, and a good set of tuners, learn how to set it up and intonate it..... cause you know, its worth it and you learn and you get off your ass?

Isn't Auto-Tune for Guitar exactly that?

Peavey has a guitar with it pre-equipped.

Even with "good" intonation, guitars are still way out of tune when it comes down to it.

Why do you think things like the Buzz Feiten tuning system and Earvana nuts were made? They attempt to fix the fact that it's nearly impossible to have accurate intonation on every fret on every string.

I think longer scales might fix that, but most people don't really like the idea of playing a baritone-scale guitar in standard tuning because the string tension is considerably higher.

Shouldn't that be Antares?

Peavey are just the first manufacturer to make a guitar with Auto-Tune for Guitar preinstalled.
