At the 2012 NAMM Show, Courtney Cox of The Iron Maidens was on hand to demo the new Peavey AT-200 Auto-Tune Guitar.
Here’s an overview and demo of Antares ATG-6, aka Auto-Tune For Guitar.
The Antares ATG-6 is a proof of concept at this point, not a shipping product – also known as a $90 guitar with $40,000 of technology in it.
Antares has announced ATG-6, aka Auto-Tune for your guitar.
Here’s what they have to say about it?
In the years since its introduction, Antares Auto-Tune has literally revolutionized the process of vocal production. And now, with our new ATG-6™ guitar technology, we’re doing the same for guitar.
ATG-6 is a DSP-based suite of functions that offer everything you’ve always wanted from a guitar, along with capabilities you never imagined possible. From flawless intonation to astonishing tonal flexibility to alternate tunings that open up entirely new areas of inspiration and creativity, ATG-6 technology seriously expands the flexibility and range of the electric guitar while letting you continue to play your own way.
Using our new Solid-Tune Intonation system, an ATG-6 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 intonation that has simply never before been possible.
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.
