Hello all I am attempting to make my own custom turnings for each individual string.  I have the the Complete Pack and I've been attempting to create individual pitches for each string. as an example one of them is Robert Fripp's New Standard Tuning but I don't think you can alter the strings in such a way like you can with the MIDI and VG guitars of the past? At least when trying to create the New Standard Tuning I have not been able to pitch the G up to A and the B up to an E and the E up to G for the last part. The low E and A can be tuned to their respective pitches. My guess is that it can't be done with the Software/AT-200 in it's current state? The alternate turnings with the packs are only customizable to a point?

Everybody Keep Working It B)

You are correct.  You can't do custom tunings.  However, you can usually fake what you want.  You just can't save it.

You can fake the Fripp tuning by doing these 3 steps, it will take about 10 seconds:

Use Fret Control to do two things:
1) First, change the tuning to Double Drop D
2) Then, use Fret Control to Capo UP 5 steps.

That gets your highest two strings to the correct pitches.

Now put your fingers like this and do a String Tune:

  --0--
  --0--
  --3--
  --5--
  --7--
  --7--

Now you have your Fripp tuning...

Awesome will check it out today. Thank you so much. :)  Bad weather has kept me away from getting things done. I also need to tune to a Ukelele setting  I'm hoping this will get me there as well. :) .
