    It seem that you do have to change the octaves for the intonation. That makes sense.. or cents!!!! I made a funny!>>

    I know Tom.. Just sayin.. I think the specs go like this:

    Peterson says accurate to .1 cents.
    Turbo Tuner says accurate to + or - .2 cents.

    I'm used to the Peterson strobe an how it reacts. I really do like the way the Turbo Tuner responds... very fast. Both have there strengths. I actually really like having both... I am going to be using both in line programmed for the different tunings for the band. I think officially I qualify as a geek now, huh?

    Isn't there a rule that says if you use two tuners you need to wear a pocket protector?
    Sometimes the silence between the notes is more important...

    That should read +/- 0.02 cents.

    Hilarious, Danno. Man, every now and then I just sit back and marvel at what geeks we have become. Weren't guitarists supposed to be cool at some point long ago?
    Where's that confounded bridge?

    HOLY COW! You are right! Man, do I need glasses or what? I'll put some white tape in the middle to go with my pocket protector and calculator watch.

    I separated what Tom posted into opened and 12th fret.

    I believe this is what should be programmed into the st-200 I'm using cst1 for the opened and cts2 for the intonation. Please correct me if I'm wrong...


    BUZZ FEITEN OPENED:
    1=E octave 4 0 offset(open E).
    2=B octave 3 +1. offset(open B).
    3=G octave 3 -2. offset(open G).
    4=D octave 3 -2. offset(open D).
    5=A octave 2 -2. offset(open A).
    6=E octave 2 -2. offset(open E).
    7=d octave 2 -4. offset(open D). if you want drop D this works.

    BUZZ FEITEN 12TH FRET INTONATION:
    1=E octave 5 0 offset(12 fret E).
    2=B octave 4 0 offset(12th fret B).
    3=G octave 4 +1. offset(12th fret G).
    4=D octave 4 +1. offset(12th fret D).
    5=A octave 3 0 offset(12th fret A).
    6=E octave 3 0 offset(12th fret E).

    Wait, you mean I was supposed to be getting chicks out of this gig?! I'm afraid I may have bypassed that step and went straight from guitar player hoping to be cool to geek.

    Question:

    Do the offsets stay the same when you tune down a 1/2 step?

    I might need to do this in another band situation and will have to program the tuner for a 1/2 step down.......

    For half a step down on a 25 1/2" scale guitar with 10 gauge strings it shouldn't make any appreciable difference as long as you re-intonate your guitar after tuning down.

    If you were going down a full step or significantly changing your string gauge, then you might want to consider a different set of offsets.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, as I'm purely basing this assumption on the fact the offsets are the same for my 25 1/2" scale and my 24 3/4" scale guitars.

    i think for tuning they'll work fine. it would be an interesting test to see how the intonation might change with the lower tension. i do use a -4 cent offset when i drop a whole step to D on my low E.

    drop D

    been using my turbo tuner now X 3-4 weeks with offsets. Tuned my low E down to D with regular programmed offsets and was greeted by a very poor sound for drop D. I now go with -4 if I drop D and this seems to work ( I added an extra string to my TT custom1 so it automatically picks up the dropped D when I change tuning.
