    Cue every TGPer alive coming in and crying tone loss.

    Roland did this with the VG-8 fifteen years ago. You had to have a hex pickup installed. Maybe Antares has figured out how to do it with a regular mono input, sort of a TC Polytune on steroids?

    Jimmy Page sometimes played a duplicate note on another string that was slightly off tune from the primary. One of the things that gave his playing a bit of punch. Santana liked to ease into a note that way as well. I guess it depends on how quickly this thing decides if you're trying to do a vibrato, a bit of "sliding" into a pitch or even intentionally running a few cents high. I think we sort of have things that will do autotune guitar, don't we? Keyboards.

    I'm involved pretty extensively in music production and use autotune and melodyne quite a bit. I think they're great for tightening up some pitchy vocal performances but is there such a thing as a pitchy guitar player? I mean the notes are located in little rectangles that you put your fingers on.

    To be honest **** is starting to get out of hand. I see a very sad and plastic future for musicians to come. I'm glad i still can sit in front of real live people and play a song.
