    stream is more accurate for SURE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I couldn't deal with normal, too innacurate but the stream made it usable for me. Try it, I bet you'll hear the difference.

    Normal, I feel like I'm going to have a seizure with stream mode.

    Stream is a tad more accurate; normal is just 'plain old good' for gigs.
    I prefer the Peterson Virtual Strobe for accuracy, but it's not 'floor do-able'.

    I can't seem to understand how the stream works...I have tried and tried to no avail. I use the regular mode, every once in a while I do try the other just in case my mind finds the solution.

    Streaming to the right means you are sharp, streaming to the left means you are flat. When you are in tune it stops moving.
