Back in the January 2013 issue, we took a first look at the Peavey AT-200 Auto-Tune guitar. In less than a year, Antares, the company behind the AT-200’s built-in Auto-Tune software technology, has significantly upgraded the system’s available features and ease of use with a variety of affordable software upgrade packs.
Guitar World visited the Peavey booth at last week's 2012 Winter NAMM show in Anaheim, California, to check out the Peavey AT-200 guitar with Antares Auto-Tune built in. This guitar self-tunes and self-intonates at the push of a button -- and it's all done digitally. There are no moving parts in the tuning process. Notice how out of tune the guitar is before the Auto-Tune feature is engaged.
