You can tune up with the best strobe tuner in the known universe all day long, and if the guitar's intonation is not spot on, it will wreak havoc with pitch shifting effects. And, as said, add tempered tuning (causing all kinds of weird "unnatural" interferences) to the scenario and it doesn't get any better. Whatever, all this is why proper polyphonic pitch shifting likely needs to go for a kind of "brute force" method. "Just transpose everything, will you?" As I'm no programmer, I have no clue about the secrets behind this. Seems to be a pretty wellkept secret in the audio world, too, as there's companies who just seem to do it well, whereas others don't. Serato and zplane are prime examples for excellent algorithms, whereas, say, Logic (which isn't even exactly offering anything realtime) is doing notoriously bad (I even used to switch to Cubase just to perform some time stretching or transposing back in the days). As said, personally I really wish L6 would add another algorithm, allowing for way better tracking and accurate pitching while sacrificing tonal "integrity". As said, I know that most people are interested in an easy way to achieve drop tunings, but I'd rather like something to experiment with (again as said, think HOG/POG). For any such purposes. tonal quality is less relevant but things have to be accurate instead. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
