Rocktron VersaTune Rack Tuner

The Rocktron VersaTune Rack Tuner is a versatile true-bypass Guitar/Bass rack tuner for live and studio use. Professional and well thought out, the VersaTune fits the bill for excellence in a rack tuner!

The VersaTune features a large "NOTE" display. Bright LEDs provide the perfect amount of light for on-stage tuning. Over a hundred different tunings can be viewed in the display window including standard guitar/bass tunings, alternate tunings, drop tunings and opening tunings.

Want to tune your guitar a half step down? Need to tune your guitar to DADGAD? How about tuning a Mandolin, Dobro, Pedal Steel Guitar or other types of instruments? The VersaTune can help you to adjust to these tunings and the tunings display window shows you how!
A unique feature on the VersaTune is the "TUNINGS WINDOW". The Tunings Window shows over a hundred different tuning, and how to tune to these tunings from the standard A440 Guitar Tuning. Additionally, Rockron has included some other tunings for different instruments such as, mandolin, mandola, pedal steel, banjo and many others. Use the UP & DOWN buttons on the front panel to scroll through the different tunings.
Up and Down arrows appear in the display window next to the note to show "how" to tune to a particular tuning from standard A440 tuning. For example, to tune a guitar down a half step from standard A440, the window will show a "down" arrow next to the note you are tuning down to. Start by tuning the low E string down to D# or Eb as the window will show "down arrow" D#, (meaning to tune that string down to D# or Eb) . Continue with the same process for other strings.
Use the Up/Down buttons to select different tunings from standard guitar and bass tunings to a wide range of alternate tunings and tunings for different types of instruments. Additional tunings for 7-String Guitar, 5-String and 6-String bass are included. Tunings for other instruments such as dobro, mandolin family, banjo, pedal steel, classical instruments and other string instruments (Bouzouki, Banduria, Dulcimer, Requinto, etc) are also included.

STANDARD TUNING MODE

In Standard Tuning Mode (this is the default tuning mode when you turn on the VersaTune) the LEDs on the front panel will indicate the following:
GREEN LED - Center LED with the (0 - zero) above the LED will indicate that the note being played is "IN TUNE"
RED LEDs - To the left of the GREEN center LED will indicate that note being played is "FLAT". The numbers shown on the front panel -10, -20, -30, - 40 indicate by how many "CENTS" the note being played is off from being IN TUNE.
RED LEDs - To the right of the GREEN center LED will indicate that the note being played is "SHARP" from being IN TUNE. The numbers on the front panel +10, +20, +30, +40 indicate by how many "CENTS" the note being played is off from being IN TUNE.
CENTS - The Cent is a logarithmic unit of measure used to musical intervals. Twelve-tone equal temperament divides an octave into 12 semi tones of 100 cents each. Cents are used to measure extremely small finite intervals or to compare the sizes of comparable intervals in different tuning systems. Usually the interval of once cent is to small to be heard between successive notes.

PRECISION TUNING MODE

Precision Tuning Mode allows you to "FINE" tune your instrument. This function increases the sensitivity of the VersaTune to allow for ultra-fine tuning. In Precision Tuning Mode, the LEDs are reversed in color. Now the IN TUNE LED will be RED and the Flat and Sharp LEDs will be GREEN. This mode is quite sensitive and very slightly movements of the tuning machines on your instrument is necessary.
RED LED - Center LED with the (0 - zero) above the LED will indicate that the note being played is "IN TUNE"
GREEN LEDs - To the left of the RED center LED will indicate that note being played is "FLAT". The numbers shown on the front panel -1, -2, -3, - 4 indicate by how many "CENTS" the note being played is off from being IN TUNE.
GREEN LEDs - To the right of the RED center LED will indicate that the note being played is "SHARP" from being IN TUNE. The numbers on the front panel +1, +2, +3, +4 indicate by how many "CENTS" the note being played is off from being IN TUNE.

STROBE TUNING MODE

The STROBE function offers another alternative for tuning with the VersaTune.
Plug the guitar/bass into the tuner and press the "STROBE" button. At this point the RED LEDs will appear to move from right to left. Play a note on your guitar. Pluck your E string, if needed, adjust your tuning machine on your instrument until the letter "E" appears in the NOTE Display window. If your note is flat - the RED LEDs will appear to be moving from right to left, showing you that the note being played is flat. The faster the LEDs move right to left, the more flat the tuning is. Tune your string up. During this process the speed of the movement of the LEDs will appear to slow down as you approach being IN TUNE. When the LEDs don't appear to be moving, then the note is IN TUNE. If your note is sharp - the RED LEDs will appear to be moving from left to right, showing you that the note being played is sharp. The faster the LEDs move from left to right, the sharper the tuning is. Tune your string down. During this process the speed of the movement of the LEDs will appear to slow down as you approach being IN TUNE. When the LEDs don't appear to be moving, then the note is IN TUNE.

Muting

The VersaTune is sensitive, so it is not necessary to strike your string very hard. Standard string attack will work. Additionally, if you are in a loud environment try using harmonics to tune your instrument. Lightly touch the string over the 12th fret of your instrument and pick the string with normal pick attack. This will create a harmonic. It will work on all strings. The MUTED Output is ideal for tuning in live situations. This allows you to tune without everyone in the audience hearing you tune. Additionally, this will mute the signal going to your amplifier which will help you keep down noise generated if you are using a high gain amplifier.
