Music and audio innovator Peavey Electronics® has partnered
with Antares Audio
Technologies, the creator of world-renowned Auto-Tune®
pitch-correction technology, to announce the dawn of the new guitar
revolution: the Peavey AT-200™ guitar featuring
Auto-Tune for Guitar, a new musical instrument that electronically
self tunes and intonates continuously as you play.
With the simple push of a button on the Peavey
AT-200, guitar players can now create music in perfect
tune and pitch. The Peavey AT-200 utilises Antares
Auto-Tune for Guitar, a DSP technology that works behind the scenes
to bring the clarity of perfect pitch to a quality instrument in an
unobtrusive manner. No bulky, unattractive hardware weighs down the
playing experience - the Peavey AT-200 looks,
plays and sounds just like a conventional guitar, exactly the way
Just as Auto-Tune changed how vocals are recorded, the
Peavey AT-200 with Auto-Tune for Guitar will

won't have to stop to retune during live performances. Producers
and engineers will no longer waste precious time on tuning and
intonation issues during recording sessions. With the AT-200
guitar, perfect pitch is the new standard.
The Peavey AT-200 is also the gateway to a
growing collection of powerful new Auto-Tune for Guitar features.
With its built-in software upgrade capability, new features from
Antares can be easily loaded into the AT-200 and controlled by any
MIDI source, from MIDI foot switch controllers to iPad or iPhone
devices running dedicated Auto-Tune control software.

guitar with the Antares Solid-Tune™ intonation system constantly
monitors the precise pitch of each individual string and
electronically 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. The technology is even
smart enough to know when players intend to manipulate pitch, so
bends and vibrato sound as natural as they always have. As a
result, listening to a guitar with Solid-Tune is a revelation,
offering a purity of tone that has simply never before been

sound of guitars, creating sonority and clarity," said Dr. Andy
Hildebrand, founder of Antares Audio Technologies. "Partnering with

computers in guitar making and in creating the first digitally

and producers think about recording guitar tone forever.
