antaresforguitarIn the years since its introduction, Antares Auto-Tune has literally revolutionized the process of vocal production. And now, with our new ATG-6 guitar technology, we're doing the same for guitar.

Incorporating our world-renowned Auto-Tune pitch detection and manipulation along with our proprietary modeling technologies, ATG-6 is an entirely DSP-based suite of functions that offer everything you've always wanted from a guitar, along with capabilities you never imagined possible. From flawless intonation to astonishing tonal flexibility to alternate tunings that open up entirely new areas of inspiration and creativity, ATG-6 technology seriously expands the flexibility and range of the electric guitar while letting you continue to play your own way.

Rock Solid Tuning
It's one thing to tune up your strings, but as anyone who's been playing for a while knows, the tougher challenge is maintaining perfect intonation as you move up and down the neck and finger complex chords. Luckily, this is where ATG-6 technology performs some of its most dramatic magic.

Solid-Tune Intonation
Using our new Solid-Tune Intonation system, an ATG-6 equipped guitar constantly monitors the precise pitch of each individual string and makes any corrections necessary to ensure that every note of every chord and riff is always in tune, regardless of variables like finger position or pressure or physical limitations of the instrument. As a result, listening to a guitar with Solid-Tune is a revelation, offering a purity of intonation that has simply never before been possible.

Of course, Solid-Tune is smart enough to know when you want to manipulate pitch, so you can play bends and vibrato exactly as you always do. In fact, Solid-Tune Intonation makes it even easier to bend to the right pitch every time.

More to Come
There's lots more to say about ATG-6 capabilities, and we'll be saying it here in the near future. You can sign up for updates and we'll let you know whenever new stuff arrives. In the meantime, get ready. If you play guitar, things are about to get very interesting.
