Watch The Auto-Tune for Guitar Fret Control Video
Once you've added new performance features to your guitar with any of our Software Feature Packs, you can select features and save and recall presets directly from your guitar's fretboard with our new Fret Control system.
The basic mechanism of Fret Control uses the strings and frets of your guitar to select features. Each string is associated with a family of features (e.g., the low E string selects models, the A string above it selects alternate tunings, the D string selects doubling and transposition, etc.). Within each family, individual selections are assigned to the frets of the associated string. Simply hold down the String Tune button and play the appropriate note on the appropriate string to select the desired feature.

Software Feature Packs also provide the capability to control all of your guitar's features, along with saving and recalling presets, via standard MIDI Control Change (CC) and Program Select messages. These can be generated by any MIDI controller, MIDI sequencer or a MIDI control app running on an iPad, iPhone or other mobile device. A guide to Auto-Tune for Guitar MIDI control messages can be found in the Auto-Tune For Guitar Software Feature Pack User Manual (PDF).
Note: As of version 1.5 of MIDI Designer Pro, the original Auto-Tune for Guitar layout is built in to the app. If you have updated your Complete Pack to version 3.0 and want to have a layout that includes the new guitar models, then you need to separately download and install the updated version of the Auto-Tune for Guitar layout. Instructions for downloading and installing the updated Auto-Tune for Guitar layout can be found here.
If you have an iPad, you can control all of the Auto-Tune for Guitar features using our free control layout built in to MIDI Designer Pro.
