Ampeg® Heritage Bass Amp Plug-in Bundle
Ampeg Heritage Bass Amp Bundle
Not so bad, not so good either
It is so sensitive that is almost impossible to make it stop in the green position and stay there.
I tested with 5 great guitars and the behavior was the same.
But in the end they seemed to be tuned fine, so It is not the best tuner but it does the job.
I felt it took too much processing power out my Twin.
Anyways, I agree with the overall comments that it could be a free tool.
It's a tuner
It's a software tuner. If you set the ballistics right, it works great. I've even slapped it on an insert to find the pitch on a vocal track, which is pretty cool.
The tuner is cheap but not good for really accurate tuning. Makes me hesitant to buy anything from Brainworks?
You get amazingly accurate tuners as an App or from Scuffham amps.
Maybe Uad can bring out a decent Tuner? It would be great for live also.
Just a tuner. You need it if you don't have one. Low prices...
If you need a tuner for the studio, look no further. 10/10.
Waste of resources
Sorry, with all due respect - no where near as easy or accurate as an $11 Snark...
This plugin is a miss for UA
LOVE my UAD Apollo and the plugs!!! Unfortunately, this plugin just does not stand up to the quality I am used to with UAD. I know it's cheap, but save your money. There are better free tuners on the market. This tuner is inaccurate, jumpy and slow - useless plug. I would love to have a great tuner to be able to use in my UAD console - this one is just taking up space in my UAD plugin menu...
A piece of junk really.
How can they manage to get a guitar tuner plugin wrong? Well here's how!
It's using 15% of DSP, it's painfully slow and inaccurate. In comparison the tuner in Logic barely use any CPU, it's really fast and accurate.
The only reason I got this was because I thought it would be handy to have a tuner in the console, but this is just a pain to use and I end up using the one in Logic instead.
I love brainworx but what high school kid did they put on this job? Please update this plugin and make it usable.
I've yet to write a review here but I feel compelled to tell you guys to avoid this thing... It is simply a horrible tuner, the tracking on it is pitiful, with the meter flying all over the place as the note decays. Love brainworx, but this thing is a piece of garbage.
I love this tuner it's very accurate. Also it's great to see it on my screen and be able to read it on my 27 inch monitor. I don't have to pull out my guitar tuner either. At times looking at those, Either on the floor, paddleboard, even the ones that clip onto the head of the guitar, can be difficult to see. It also depends on the lighting at the time. This is always very simple to read and very easy to use.
Excellent tuner for guitar or bass
This is a very accurate tuner.it works great for guitar and bass. There is no need for me to pull out my tuner while I'm cutting tracks.
A simple plug in that works as it should. I bought it to make the recording process a wee bit quicker.
Hard to believe this doesn't come bundled with an Apollo hardware purchase but c'est la vie.
Nice Solid tuner! Good choice for use with studio artists.
essential but basic
I have other tuners that I prefer to this one, but having this as an insert in Console is very handy for quickly checking tuning between takes without having to open a separate application like Strobosoft or one of my tuner apps for iPhone. It is a "slow" tuner, so setting it to the highest speed is my preference. I wasn't too impressed at first, but I'm using it more & more. It "does the job."
Brainworx bx_tuner Plug-In
The large display tuner is helpful to keep up when tracking.
I was looking for a unit and someone told me that this was available with my Apollo. It's Simple and very effective
My first thought was 20 bucks?! I got to try this. Not only is it great for tuning guitars its perfect for finding the key for your songs and vocal tracks. GET THIS PLUG IN ASAP.
Very accurate, precise. Good looking. Easy to use as well.
Works great if you need 440hz tuning, but I find it frustrating that the developers took the effort to support different frequencies, but then limited it to +/- 2hz in each direction. It seems like it wouldn't be any extra engineering work to go +/- 10hz, which would support the most common non-440 A's (like 432 and 444).
Excellent affordable alternative to a pedal
I've used the Brainworx bx_tuner Plug-in on 3 sessions this month and I find it to be very accurate, fast to react and easy to use. I've used it on electric guitar, bass guitar, Rhodes and Wurli and it worked equally well on all of them.
It's a very useful alternative to having pedals connected constantly or having to go in an dout of tuners in between takes.
I just swap over to my UA console, turn it on, have a quick tune and straight back to tracking in my DAW. No muting of channels or switching leads.
I've A/B'd it with the Korg TU-3 and find it to be just as accurate and easy to use.
It's great value also.
