The Waves Tuner is an essential part of the Waves Guitar Tool Rack. It is a straightforward chromatic tuner that can be set to Auto Chromatic, Guitar and also different open tunings or single notes.
For ideal results, pluck your string about once per second while tuning. Since a plucked guitar string has a pitch envelope, it is recommended to tune the string by monitoring its sustained part. If the pitch of the attack is a bit sharp, wait for the note to settle and then make the required adjustment.
Tuner Controls and Displays
MAIN TUNE VIEW – the graph shows -50 to +50 cents. 0 cents (in the middle) indicates perfectly in tune.
ARROWS AND DOT – Below the main Tune View there are two arrows. Between the arrows is a dot. The left arrow points to the right to indicate that the current pitch is flat and that the string should be tuned up. The left arrow is lit whenever the tune is -3 cents or lower.
The Right arrow points to the Left to indicate the current tune is sharp and the string should be tuned down. The right arrow is lit whenever the pitch 3 cents sharp or higher.
