Antares has announced ATG-6, aka Auto-Tune for your guitar.
Here’s what they have to say about it?
In the years since its introduction, Antares Auto-Tune has literally revolutionized the process of vocal production.
Now, with our new ATG-6™ guitar technology, we’re doing the same for guitar.
ATG-6 is a DSP-based suite of functions that offer everything you’ve always wanted from a guitar, along with capabilities you never imagined possible. From flawless intonation to astonishing tonal flexibility to alternate tunings that open up entirely new areas of inspiration and creativity, ATG-6 technology seriously expands the flexibility and range of the electric guitar while letting you continue to play your own way.
Using our new Solid-Tune Intonation system, an ATG-6 equipped guitar constantly monitors the precise pitch of each individual string and makes any corrections necessary to ensure that every note of every chord and riff is always in tune, regardless of variables like finger position or pressure or physical limitations of the instrument. As a result, listening to a guitar with Solid-Tune is a revelation, offering a purity of intonation that has simply never before been possible.
ATG-6 – Six Times The Auto-Tune Pain?
At this point, Auto-Tune for Guitar is just an announcement, Antares hasn’t released audio or video demos.
And our gut-level reaction is that ATG-6 could be six times as annoying as Auto-Tune for vocals.
But Auto-Tune for guitars also promises new tuning options, and potential as a creative tool for guitars and possibly other audio sources.
