On-the-fly Tuner Pedal?

Post by rower » Mon Jan 01, 2018 2:45 pm

I play noise guitar and sometimes detune my guitar strings while playing. I usually will just try and get it back to tune by ear but having a tuner pedal running might be useful in some circumstances. It seems like most tuner pedals cut the signal when switched on, does anyone know of a pedal that will maintain the signal while on? Is there a way to work around this, like using a splitter?

Sorry to hijack this thread, but I've had a tuner-related question for a while now:

Does anyone make a tuner that can record custom, even out-of-tune tunings? Suppose you randomly tuned to something that you want to remember for later. With this theoretical device, you could play each string to record the individual string tunings, saving them as a preset to be recalled later.

I realize you could just log the tuner readings given by a standard tuner on a sheet of paper, but that's not as cool.

Searching microtonal instrument tuner returned this: http://gillesdegottex.github.io/fmit/ maybe something like that can help?

I prefer my splitters active, but whatever floats your boat.

The Gibson min-etune (there are other robo tuner systems...) can store user tunings and then, with a button press, tunes yer plank for you :)
