Blue Cat Audio Hot Tuna Audio Plug-in Software

Tracking guitar or bass direct into your DAW? Skip the tuner pedal and stay in tune with this high-precision plug-in that dims/mutes your signal when active.

Blue Cat's Hot Tuna is a high-precision chromatic tuner plug-in that can dim or mute the signal when active. The reference frequency can be adjusted to support any type of tuning.

Hot Tuna is a very simple yet powerful plug-in: you can freely adjust the amount of dimming, an indispensable feature for live gigs!

The reference frequency can be changed (from 430 to 450 Hz) when non-standard tuning is required.

All in all, it is a very simple plug-in that will keep you safely in tune! Most of the processing is performed in the background, so that the tuner does not impact the performance of the real time audio engine of the host.

This plug-in is also available as a built-in effect inside Blue Cat's Axiom, the multi effects processor for guitar and bass.
