Hey theres this new auto tuning system developed by tronical.

Looks pretty sweet.

Go to http://www.tronical.com and check out the vid.

I wonder if it really will be as good as advertised. Its pretty expensive as well.

i think it could catch on but would slow down the learning process of new guitarist, its great for your neice to pick up a guitar that'll always be in tune but its like an automatic car, unless you can drive manual, you cant really drive

This isn't that new.

Kinda pointless IMO.

Wonder if it works with floyd rose? I dont like the idea of digital tuning but it beats the hell out of that other one out there w/ the ****ing ginormous bridge and the buttons above the strings that look like they would get in the way.

It's a gimmick if you ask me. It's not exactly hard to tune a guitar, and locking tuners hold tune fine.

And it wouldn't be great for switching tunings on the fly either, since your intonation will be crap.

I wonder how it would work with trems? Would it try to tune you if you do a divebomb?

You also don't know how it would handle heavy guages.

I dunno, I'd never pay money for something that can be done just as well with a good ear and locking tuners.

it supposedly tunes intonation, they have an intonation mode to make sure thats all good to go.

but ya, how about floyd rose bridges? and heavy guaged strings and stuff, like i use 10-70. I think its pretty sweet for those people that pick up the guitar to strum a few notes and play a few songs at a few shows, but its definitly not worth having if your constantly touring and beating your guitar up.

i think it might be good to put on one of your guitars because you can put it in open tunings and stuff quicker then switch between them

^ Which one? The first one is only on the machine heads AFAIK, so it can't possibly intonate. The second, more bulky, one can though.

And you made a good point about beating your guitar up, what if it fails during a show?

^i never knew there was two, hah, i just saw the one with the machine heads, and the bridge, and the selecter knobs.


but ya, i beat the hell out of my guitar when i play, and these things im pretty sure have a lot of moving parts in the machine heads alone, if it gets slammed anywhere, its pretty much done, i wouldnt take the risk.

and whatevers, you can tune the guitar yourself, every live set needs a breather and a bit of senseless banter whilst tuning,

Yea lol, all good points.

Buts its new anyway, we'll see if any artists begin to use them or not.

The bridge I think is a floating one, so it has a slot for the whammy bar.

It's not exactly for new players because its so expensive, so the point about slowing learning process isnt valid.

Its £500, thats roughly $900.
