Tune All of Your Strings at Once!Polytune by TC Electronic goes leaps and bounds beyond the limits of traditional tuners to offer serious guitarists and bass players a faster and more efficient method of tuning. Now you can spend less time tuning and more time playing. Polytune uses poly-chromatic tuning, an updated tuning technology that breaks down strummed notes into the notes of each individual string. That means that the Polytune lets you strum your guitar and tune all of your strings at once, instead of tuning one string at a time. And there's no need to install split pickups or extra hardware — just plug in, stomp down, strum, tune, and let Polytune make your life easier.
TC Electronic's Polytune has all of the features you want and a wish-list worth of extras. A huge LED display armed with an ambient light sensor stays bright enough to see even in daylight or the glaring lights of the stage. In addition to poly-chromatic mode, the TC Electronic Polytune has two different hyper-accurate chromatic modes that let you hone in to within .5 cents of your target tuning. Needle mode gives you an LED version of a traditional analog tuner with a sweeping needle, while Stream mode has a text readout and a rotary indicator to help with the finest tuning.
Because both chromatic modes are remarkably sensitive and responsive, TC Electronic includes the Tuning Magnet feature to slow down the display as you hone in on your note. And another function call MonoPoly lets the Polytune recognize if you're playing one or more strings and switch tuning modes between poly-chromatic and regular chromatic instantly. That means you can strum to quickly tune all of your strings close to their target notes, and then play individual strings for fine tuning. And no matter if you play guitar or bass, or if you tune to standard E to E or any custom tuning of your choice, Polytune can handle it and will save all of your custom settings, from tuning preferences to reference note adjustment.

Relatively small footprint. Can't ask for more. Oh, did I mention fast? Not only fast in response, but fast to switch automatically between modes. I haven't had time to try to figure it out, all I know is it does what I need it to do on the fly.

Music Background: Play and performed since 4, later produced, now a retired old hack in the desert,
I use the linear display, as these old eyes have no trouble recognizing what string and whether sharp or flat, chromatically or with a simple open strum. And this while a rhythm track is playing through the same amp. THAT blew me away! Seems to me no interference. It is, however, subject to to power disturbance, such as fans, computers, possibly even cell phones, but I've found it to be only a minor issue. Click off the pedals, and be aware the if your a/c is running, there may be funny swirling sound in the background. It turns down with your volume and lack of effects. That, and the fact that the plastic visor popped off when I first took it out of the box, held on by some tacky stuff. It's worked fine after I pressed it back in place.
First time doing business with Sweetwater, that I recall, it's it's a bit like Christmas =candy in the package?!! I just bought a Tele, and would liked to have worked with Sweetwater on it. I purchase from a well known online vendor and after the typical set up time and favored string change, I am satisfied. But I intend to do more biz with Sweetwater in the future. I like their style so far. close [-]
Tuning all six strings at once saves you time, and gets you straight to playing. I use the TC Electronic PolyTune at all times. Less tuning, more rock!
