Tuning used to be a necessary evil. The last barrier before you could get truly rocking. But now, tuning is ready to get blasted into the 21st century with PolyTune, the stomp-box sized tuning miracle from TC Electronic!
PolyTune is the world's first polyphonic tuner, and a game-changing total tuning turnaround that will have future guitarists wondering how they ever got by without it.
It couldn't be done - until TC Electronic did it!
The magic lies in a never before seen approach to tuning aimed at speed, accuracy and ease of use. With PolyTune, you simply strum all strings on yourguitar or bass at once, and it will immediately tell you which strings need tuning! This cutting-edge tuning technology revolutionizes the way you tune and accomplishes what has been deemed 'impossible' until now: tuning all strings simultaneously! It really is as simple as strum - tune - rock, and this quantum leap forward allows you to get in tune fast, and back to doing what you love: playing.
Strum - Tune - Rock
Providing an instant overview of the pitch of all yourstrings, PolyTune is an invaluable tool in live-settings, where it is essential to be in tune quickly and ready to play. Crowds don't want to wait around, they want to rock, and, let's face it, so do you. Besides live use, this stomp box will deliver like no other in any situation where you want to get tuning out of the way and focus on play.
If you are a guitarist that likes to play at a different pitch than standard, this is yourgo-to pedal, allowing for dropped tunings from E-flat all the way down to B. Whatever yourpitch or tuning, PolyTune is a sure-fire way to be spot-on, with an accuracy of just plus/minus 1cent.
Drop it like it's hot
Equally effective for guitar and bass, PolyTune is extremely flexible as well. The reference pitch can be set to yourpreference and ranges from 435Hz to 445Hz. This guarantees you'll be able to play along with anyone, with any instrument and in any situation.
Besides the Polyphonic tuner, PolyTune has a chromatic tuner that can hang with the best current tuning technology out there, with an amazing 0.5 cent accuracy. But, never satisfied with the current norm, TC Electronic added some features to make this tuner's chromatic section stand out from the crowd.
Let's start with the two separate chromatic tuning modes, which cater to your individual preferences and needs. Needle mode is for those that are used to the classic view on a tuner. For the people that want a little more real-time information, they have included stream-mode, which measures even the slightest pitch variation and instantly feeds the info back to you via a rotating motion on the display.
Key to both these great chromatic modes is an ultra-fast and precise response, which is achieved via the use of the unique tuner magnet feature. This slows down the needle once you get close to the desired pitch, making it much easier to get the job done quickly.
Whether you want to use the polyphonic tuner to get in tune, or prefer to go the chromatic route, this pedal has you covered. PolyTune features "MonoPoly", a unique patent-pending technology that recognizes whether you play one or more strings and instantly replies with the appropriate poly- or monophonic tuning mode.
Of course, all of these amazing features would not mean a thing if they were a pain to use or set up. So, TC Electronic added some traits to ensure this tuner is calibrated to the guitarist. Unlike most other tuners, PolyTune stores yourpreferences. From pitch reference to tuning mode, it hangs on to this information even after it is powered down, making sure you only have to set how you want things to happen once.
The next time you power up again, it will show you the settings, so you instantly know Everything is exactly how you want it to be.
Tuning as it should be
PolyTune was TC Electronic's chance to build the ultimate tuning tool from the ground up and finally get rid of some of the current tuner drawbacks that guitarists run into time and time again. Tuners have been around for some 30 odd years and they felt it was high time they got in tune with todays guitarists.
A strong display of innovation
Starting with the display, it instantly becomes clear why PolyTune is lightyears ahead of current tuners. Guitarists that play gigs, will no doubt recognize the nightmare of an unclear display, due to for example bright sunlight, an overeager light technician or a stage smoke machine gone bonkers.
PolyTune offers unprecedented visibility using an ambient light sensor, which automatically matches the brightness of the LEDs to its surroundings.
What is the Matrix?
PolyTune features 17 LEDS which allow for a higher resolution and the LEDs themselves are super bright and focused to ensure optimal visibility at all times. This guarantees the most effortless tuning experience money can buy. And as an added bonus, the 100 LED matrix can give you information right on the display, so you won't have to go dig for the manual mid-gig.
