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.
In addition to the String Tune and Solid-Tune functions provided by the original AT-200, Antares now includes upgraded Auto-Tune for Guitar software that adds a variety of alternate tunings, virtual capo settings, and guitar/pickup modeling sounds that are instantly accessible via the software’s Fret Control feature. I took a look at the fully loaded Complete Pack, but Essential and Pro Pack options are also available for guitarists who don’t need or can’t afford the full monty.
