erniedenov Posted April 25, 2017 Share Posted April 25, 2017 FWIW I am dead serious about this. Sorry. I just felt like a little levity was in order at this point. To offend was not my intent. Sure there is still the occasional person who does not find the tuner reactive or accurate enough but they are the extremely rare exception. If you look far enough back at the old tuner threads there were a ton of complaints that the tuner was not "granular" enough and that it read in tune even when it was not. There were few or NO complaints about it being jumpy. A few firmware versions ago they responded to the complaints regarding granularity with a firmware revision that made the tuner readout more granular and added the second tuning bar. That is when the complaints about it being too jumpy started and the complaints about granularity pretty much ended. Let's not start revising history by saying the complaints were alternating. We have moved from a stable tuner that people perceived as not responsive enough to a jumpy tuner that I suppose you could describe as overly responsive. We just need to find a way to leverage the increased/improved granularity with a less jumpy readout or one that offers a momentary freeze (as discussed ad nauseam). This makes a whole lot of sense. I don't find the tuner unusable by any means; I just find it slower than any other tuner that I've used. Both bands that I work with consistently go from one song straight into the next one and there are very few breaks for stage banter. I usually have to tune during a 4 or 8 bar break where guitar lays out. To add insult to injury, my guitars are set up with floating bridges which take longer to tune than non-floating or hard tail bridges. To summarize, I have to tune up quickly. It's not a major issue, but it is an issue. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
