I would like to apologize in advance for this newby question!!! I have a similar problem other's here have had with my AT200 guitar. I have set the intonation the best I can before autotune feature is engaged. Some strings are a little off WITH autotune engaged. I am wanting to correct this. I have read the forum and answers about the problem (system thinks I am bending string ) . My question is " If  notes are slightly flat on a certain string WITH autotune engaged , when I adjust the actual saddle (with autotune turned OFF) to try to correct the issue do I move the saddle forward or backward? I get a little confused wondering & thinking about what the software is correcting!!( I do know that if notes are sharp move saddle back,if notes are flat move saddle forward) I am just getting confused with autotune system(OVER THINKING)! also is it possible to correct this with The ATG Settings Manager?? THANKS for any Help!!!

I wish I could help more than this ...

If a note is flat, you either increase tension or shorten the length to make the pitch sharper.  This implies moving the saddle closer to the nut to shorten the string length, raising the pitch.

Hello garylance,

I would highly recommend having the guitar as well intonated as possible.  The ATG software has a threshold where it will correct the pitch when the note is within the correct range.  If the note fall outside this range, then Solid-Tune will let go of the note as if you are bending.  Even if you are trying to "trick" the system, Solid-Tune will correct the pitch if the note is within the range.

If you seriously are experiencing pitches being off from what they should be, could you please contact support so we can assist you?  Here is the contact info:


Thank you!
