Does POD HD have the alternative tuning effect or pedal?
by ifac8 on 2013-04-08 08:52:49

I only have a ibanez guitar, and floyd rose setting make it very time consuming to change tuning such as Eb tuning or drop D tuning. I know the Variax  guitar have this function.  But Does  any POD HD products or "Pod Hd Edit" software have the "alternative tuning" effect or pedal without the Variax  guitar? If not, does line6 have other products to do that?

there is a pitch shifter changer on the HD, I tried it only for a laugh and sounded pretty convincing, some some chords sounded a bit strange. Sorry can't remember where I found it. But it was on this superb forum.

The pitch shifter mentioned above is OK for one-note-at-a-time stuff but it is not very good at polyphony. You'll find it in the Filter section of the FX, I think. It is not an alternate tuning solution because it isn't really meant to handle chords.

Pitch Shifter shifts everything, as well, so it wouldn't do drop D or open tunings from standard tuning shapes.
