Spectrum analyzer more or less works, but I find it hard to get the kind of precision you need for tuning a stringed instrument using the analyzer alone.

I would love an in-built tuner in Live - if nothing else, it would make pitching Sampler samples way easier.

Can't say that often enough. I often catch myself opening Guitar Rig just for the sole purpose of tuning my instruments or samples.

I always tuned to mains hum (G) or had a keyboard player in the band, never did have a tuner till I bought a Pod.

Pish =) Tuners are for poofs! You only need to be in accurate tune if you have a keyboard player and, as any fule kno, keyboard players are poofs! Otherwise it just has to be good enuff for rock'n'roll.

:lol: ha ha very rock and roll! Like it.

actually I've rarely ever used tuners… more likely to get an E from somewhere, maybe load in a piano or synth or Electric in Ableton if there isn't one around somewhere, then tune the rest to itself

not that I don't think a tuner would be a good idea… I will admit if I'm doing a 'proper' take for a recording then I'll use the one in Guitar rig to be extra precise

Would that be American or European mains hum?

That's a very good point! If I had ever toured US what would have happened... Google time... be right back...

Ok, in UK (I'm a Brit) it is 50hz, in US it is 'usually' 60hz, so I would have been playing sharp!
