All the other strings are pretty much right on, but the low E string is out of tune. Sometimes after it has settled down for 4 or 5 seconds then it might be in tune.

I am using the tuner in garageband. I doesn't sound in tune to my ears either.

Any ideas?

Also, if I buy a software feature pack, is that likely to fix my problem?

Hey webmagnets,

The ATG technology will mimick the way a string is stretched when being physically plucked.  Obviously, when you plug a string, the string is stretch slightly which should make it slightly sharp.  However, if your string sounds flat (I would certainly highly recommend using a quality tuner to check), it is more likely the physical intonation is so far out that Solid-Tune thinks you are bending the string.  This would explain why after a few seconds the string comes within Solid-Tune's threshold and the note being corrected.
