Does Amplifi-TT have settings to model alternate tuning, like the Variax


Recommended Posts

No, there’s no alternate tuning capability that addresses individual strings, like Variax. There are certain FX blocks that adjust the pitch of the entire signal but they don’t recognize individual notes and they are monophonic. That means they work best on single notes rather than chords. For instance, you can simulate a bass guitar by using a pitch shifter FX to lower the pitch of the incoming signal by an octave. Then you can play a bass part using individual notes and it can sound like a bass guitar. 

You can use it to drop everything a semi-tone, for instance, and play chords. It will sound something like detuning your guitar to Eb but the monophonic nature of the FX introduces artifacts that I believe most players find intolerable.
