what do you guys think about this issue?? unsure.gif

So, I have an PC based recording set up.. Revalver, GR3, Amplitube, Wagner,ect… I have been using the tuner with GR3 to tune my guitar. For some reason it just did not seem right. I am tuned down a whole step to D. Anyway I buy a Boss TU-2 tuner and tune up to that. I then jump over to my PC and all of the guitar tuners that are built into the GR3, Amplitube and Revalver are about 20cents flat??? I think that the Boss is a good tuner? Are the amp sims doing something? I mean I am going guitar into Fast Track Pro USB then into amp sim??

Thanks Chaz

Im not sure if im saying this correct but your other tuner could be in a different tune.Like i know that my tuner's have like 440 A Hz and then a few different setings from there.So it could just be something where the pitch is just a few notches up like you said .Sorry cant really explain well tongue.gif

My Gear
Cort X-2 electric with 24 frets and 2 humbucker's dark Blue
Kustom DFX100 With Celestion Speakers,and thats it now (lol)

My Advice
Figure out what you want in life early.Wether it's the girl,the partying
or mastering the guitar.Adding any 2 together will get in your way.

Hey!! I've got the Fasttrack USB too! It works very well wink.gif

And yes, I've got the same problem, the tuners give different opinions each, usually GR tells me my guitar is 3 cents offtune or sharp... But it's so precise I can never get it to be 0 cents and I get pissed off smile.gif and use my Ibanez tuner instead.

My suggestion: check you're tuning to 440 hz (like said above) both in GR and on the tuner, then if it still does it... I don't know biggrin.gif but try tuning it as the software tells you and see what difference there is.... smile.gif

if you want to play with or some midi programs on your PC .tune your guitar at the tuner which coming with the program .cause each programs has a different tuning .for playing with wav songs use your boss its the right tunner 440HZ.

CHeck if you are tuned properly. Strings being percusive they are, tend to give higher pitch emediately when you pluck them. Wait for a second of two - and then see the value. You adjust to that value, not the one you hear right away, since that one is always at higher pitch, expecially on bass strings.

Also check your tuning reference point in all programs and pick something that suites best for your track\recording. If yu can`t hear the difference in pitch and everything sounds right when recorded, ther is no worry.

Whenever i tune my guitar, I use my thumb and index finger. I pull up on the string only a milimeter high and release it. The pitch should remain the same.
