When I bought my AT200 I thought it was great that Peavey was offering this technology at a price the average working man could afford, even if the guitar itself was, shall we say, modestly appointed.
It looks like Antares has decided instead to go for the doctor and lawyer market.
Frankly I was expecting the basic package to be free- certainly not anywhere remotely close to $99.
Hopefully they will at least give us a free download that will allow us to boost the output to a typical level.

How does this work? For purposes of explanation, let us assume your low E string is perfectly tuned. Hold down the string at fret two while performing a String Tune. The computer measures the string is one whole step sharp, and lowers its pitch accordingly. Now, when you play the open string, you get a D and you now have drop D tuning.
Not exactly. In fact when you press down behind the fret, and depending how hard you press, the computer sees the string is one whole step plus a few cents sharp. The computer can't tell the difference between a slightly out-of-tune string and the effect of this fingering error, so now, when you play the open string, you get a drop D tuning with the D slightly flat.
In most cases, the amount of flatness is inaudible during real-world playing, but will show up if measured by a very accurate (and properly calibrated) tuner. You can minimize or eliminate the effect in one of these ways:
• To minimize the flatness when creating an alternate tuning by special fingering, finger each note right on the appropriate fret and apply the minimum amount of finger pressure necessary to sound the desired note.
• Upgrade to one of the Software Feature Packs. Selecting any of the alternate tunings available in the feature packs will always result in perfectly tuned strings.

I presume (if the reports are correct) that this would be a software glitch and easily corrected by a software update?
I would hate to have waited (and still waiting) for so long only to have the product recalled
your comments would be gratefully received...
the software/tuning has one major flaw that I can't figure out. It is always flat. For example, if I bar the second fret I should be in D tuning, one step down from standard, right? Well, according to my tuner all strings are a little flat from that. They are perfectly in tune with each other, and all up and down the neck as advertised. But, if I am playing with a keyboardist/bassist/recording I need to be in perfect tune with them also, not just myself. So it's all kind of pointless.
OK well I did just check one of our at 200's dropped a step against a tuner (Boss, built into JS-10 E-band) and the auto tuned output measured quite flat... I dunno what to say. Ready for software Rev 1.1????

From Our Research Team: MIDI I/O for Your AT-200!
Peavey's AT-200 MIDI Update Cable lets you connect your AT-200 Auto-Tune guitar to your computer without the optional AT-200B Breakout Box. The AT-200 MIDI Update Cable is incredibly easy to use. One end features an 8-pin DIN connection that matches the data jack on your AT-200 Auto-Tune guitar. On the other end, there's a MIDI in and a MIDI out connection. Just hook these up to your standard MIDI interface, and you're good to go. Adding new features to your AT-200 guitar is super easy with a Peavey AT-200 MIDI Update Cable from Sweetwater.
To bad they didn't add a a third leg to the cable that's wired to the power and audio signal pins on the 8-pin MIDI side. Connect it to a quality 9v pedalboard-type power supply you probably already own and you'd have an inexpensive cable version of the breakout box.

A user has posted some soundclips to demonstrate this.

It's been said it is still too soon for the floor pedal but what about the luthier custom kits and the software feature packs?

I waited nearly a whole year for the guitar, now I need the accessory box, or I need to buy some stock in Energizer or Duracell.
These AA batteries are eatin' me up!.
