Antares Auto-Tune Technology, Revolutionizing the Guitar.
With Auto-Tune for Guitar, tuning your guitar is a breeze. You can tune all six strings instantly with the push of a button (no motors or gears required). Simply strum the strings, trigger String Tune via a button or an external controller, and your guitar is instantly in tune. It’s really that simple.
Perfect Tuning Instantly
Now you can focus on your performance. No more fumbling to fix tuning in the middle of a song. And whenever there's a need to quickly and reliably tune your guitar - a quick push of a button and you’re instantly in tune.
Solid Tune ® Intonation
It's one thing to tune up your strings, but as anyone who's been playing for awhile knows, the tougher challenge is maintaining perfect intonation as you move up and down the neck and finger complex chords. Luckily, this is where Auto-Tune for Guitar performs some of its most dramatic magic.
Less-than-perfect intonation muddies your guitar's tone. But by using our new Solid-Tune® Intonation system, an Auto-Tune for Guitar equipped guitar constantly monitors the precise pitch of each individual string and makes any corrections necessary to ensure that every note of every chord and riff is always in tune, regardless of variables like finger position or pressure or physical limitations of the instrument. As a result, listening to a guitar with Solid-Tune is a revelation, offering a purity of tone that has simply never before been possible. Solid-Tune® delivers perfect intonation that enhances the rich sonority of the guitar.
Of course, Solid-Tune is smart enough to know when you want to manipulate pitch, so you can play bends and vibrato exactly as you always do. In fact, Solid-Tune Intonation makes it even easier to bend to the right pitch every time.
Using Auto-Tune's world-standard pitch detection and extremely high-quality pitch shifting, Auto-Tune for Guitar lets you quickly select from among familiar alternate tunings as well as dramatic new tunings that would be physically impossible without Auto-Tune for Guitar.
From popular tunings like drop D, open D, open G, and DADGAD to previously-impossible tunings like six-string bass, split bass/guitar (i.e., just the bottom string shifted an octave down), twelve string, and the best polyphonic octaver you've ever heard, Auto-Tune for Guitar gives you access to virtually any tuning you can imagine, along with some you may have never imagined. All without the need to stop and physically retune or swap guitars.

Antares' Virtual Capo allows players to play simple chords with open strings in the first position down at the bottom of the neck. Auto-Tune for Guitar technology offers a 2-octave capo range that can shift pitch both up and down a full octave from either standard or alternate tuning. Easily transpose music to different keys but continue playing with ease in the key you’re more familiar and comfortable with -- accompany any singer or performer or band!
In addition, transposing using Auto-Tune for Guitar’s virtual capo opens up several new possibilities to the guitar player. Imagine playing 12th fret hammer ons and pull offs in the open position, or switching to baritone guitar, bass, or even sub-bass, with the push of a button.
Guitar and Pickup Modeling
With Auto-Tune for Guitar's guitar and pickup modeling, you have a virtually unlimited variety of classic and modern tones at your fingertips.
Antares' proprietary modeling technology lets you select a guitar/pickup combo and then select from the pickup configurations that would be available on the original guitar.
Auto-Tune for Guitar also offers a tone control that can boost or cut the modeled pickups' frequency response, dramatically changing the sound of any guitar and pickup model.

In addition to being able to select the Auto-Tune for Guitar features in Software Feature Packs via MIDI, Auto-Tune for Guitar's Fret Control capability lets you select features and save and recall presets directly with the guitar.
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 press and hold down the guitar's String Tune switch and pluck the appropriate string at the specific fret to select the desired feature.
