I was tuning down to play a song the other day..and I suddenly and an idea. Would it be possible to put "tuning presets" in an amp? For example, the amp maker would put a tuning preset for Eb, D, etc and the notes you would play would be automatically converted. . So, say you're at a concert, the song you're playing is in E tuning, but the next song is down a half step, so you hit a footpedal, and your sound is instantly dropped a half step.

Obviously it'd sound more digital, but do you think this would ever be possible?

In an amp, i dunno, but on pedal, yeah, its called Pitch Shifter.

Really? Awesome. I can't believe I haven't heard of that.

if they can do it in a pedal im sure it could be intergrated into an amp

Just build a pitch shifter into the amp. No biggy.
I'd be impressed when somebody figgers out how to do that with drop D or open G tuning!

I have a digitec pedal that does that. If you play it too quietly you can hear the strings on the guitar AND the sound out of the amp and it sound horrible. But I guess that wouldn't be a problem live.

Although technically you cant shift your guitar from standard E to drop D, but you can do from E to Eb. It works pitch wise, so all your notes go a half step up / hafl step down.

they make something like that for the guitar already, but I haven't heard of an amp doing it.

well i know the digitech whammy has detune settings. i use it, but it detunes the whole guitar up to 1 step down, so u can be in standard e, and it changes it to standard D (weird i know)(and it doesnt sound very digital at all ), and if u have the pedal in the right position, u can get it set to E flat tuning (kinda hard to get it in tune tho).
but that's just a side feature of the digitech whammy. i use primarily for crazy pitch shifting and harmony, the detuning's ok if u wanna play DGCFAD tuning. lol
thats just my 2 cents. maybe u could try the boss super shifter, maybe it'll b ur cup of tea

haha, troof. Looked very cool in the vid demos, but the coolness factor doesn't last when you see the price. I don't remember what it was exactly either, other than I would have to give them my firstborn son.
