Our friends at Confusionists have just released version 1.5 of their brilliant MIDI Designer Pro app for the iPad. While version 1.5 includes a host of powerful new features, the one of most interest to Auto-Tune for Guitar users is that our Auto-Tune for Guitar control layout is now built in to the app. So there's no longer any need to separately download and install it.
Here's how to load it:
- Launch MIDI Designer Pro and touch the "more" button
- Select "Config"
- In the Config window, select Actions and then "Load a Layout"
- Select the "Auto-Tune Guitar (built-in)" layout

The glowing reviews for the Peavey AT-200 guitar with Auto-Tune for Guitar technology continue to roll in. In the holiday issue of Guitar Player magazine, Art Thompson reviews the AT-200 and gives it Guitar Player's Editor's Pick Award. According to Thompson:
"The Antares system has the uncanny ability to keep everything soundly in tune as you play, yet the technology gives no feeling of latency, nor does it interfere with string bending, tuner twisting, or even accidently knocking the guitar out of tune."
As he sums it up:
"The AT-200 presents a radical breakthrough in tuning technology, and does so in a thoroughly playable and hip sounding instrument that any working musician can afford."

Continuing it's award-winning ways, the Peavey AT-200 Guitar with Auto-Tune for Guitar Technology is reviewed in the November 2012 issue of the UK's Guitarist magazine and, in addition to a glowing review, is awarded the magazine's Guitarist Choice Award.
Writing in the magazine, reviewer Dave Burrluck states:
"In the active Auto-Tune mode it's unbelievably accurate: the tuning wheels come to just about a perfect halt, meaning the note is very in tune. Any 12th fret intonation issues are gone; even at the 24th fret, all strings gave a perfect reading."
"The At-200's output proves scarily accurate, even if the real-world guitar is out of tune and badly intonated. [...] A brave new technology? Bring it on."
