Because You Create
Consistent tuning results can be effortlessly achieved each and every time. With StroboSoft 2.0, there is no reason why any element in your session should sound out of tune with itself or the mix.

Stop worrying about your tuning and get back to creating today. You can count on StroboSoft to make sure every element in your recordings are perfectly in tune with its unmatched 1/10th cent accuracy.

How Does StroboSoft Work?
As a stand-alone, just use your notebook's built-in mic or plug in a microphone and start tuning!

As a plug-in, install the sLINK® microhost (included in the Deluxe and Suite version) to channel your audio into StroboSoft 2.0 from your DAW. Inside a session, add StroboSoft 2.0 on an insert or buss in your VST or AU capable DAW and tune your instruments with unmatched precision.

Set-up Your Instruments at Home
Use StroboSoft to adjust more than just your tuning. Save time and money by intonating your instruments at home! Intonate your electrics quickly and easily using StroboSoft's Visual Intonation Guide that employs a 2-step visual indicator system to help you achieve the ultimate in accuracy when setting up your instruments.

Visual Intonation in Action
The built-in INTONATE function will visually assist you while intonating your instrument. The LED on the selected string will fill with color when you are in the proper octave-just isolate the strobe display and you're done!

Sweetened Tunings and More
Take advantage of Peterson Sweetened™ Tunings with StroboSoft Deluxe. Sweetened tunings are a collection of offsets assigned to particular tunings designed to make chords sound, well...sweeter! No more flat chords or having the guitars sound "out of the mix".

Peterson's GTR® and BAS® Sweeteners are proprietary settings based on the Equal Temperament scale. StroboSoft Deluxe also supports instruments with the Buzz Feiten Tuning System®.

Plug and Play
StroboSoft provides everything you need to accurately tune and even set-up your guitar or bass without the need for any expensive additional sound cards! You can successfully use StroboSoft with your stock hardware by plugging your instrument into the computer's sound card input.

StroboSoft's selectable sampling rate will support all sound cards up to 96kHz. Use the stereo/mono selectors to tune two instruments at once! Have an electric guitar on the "L" channel while an acoustic can be hooked into the "R", each with individual settings!

Features in Standard 2.0 & Deluxe 2.0 Versions:

Smoother Interface
Improved the user interface display to provide a smoother response when accessing selections and menu accessing.

Better Input Handling
Improved support for multi-channel input devices. The inputs for a multi-channel device will now appear on their own sub-menu.

Input Boost
Added: +24dB input boost to fix problems where the input signal was not strong enough to achieve a successful tuning lock.

Illuminated Sharp/Flat Indicators
Sharp and flat indicators now glow when the strobe is moving quickly to make it easier to tell which direction the strobe is moving.

Compact Mode
Compact interface mode saves screen space when many windows need to be viewed in the background. (<50% size of main UI).

Features in StroboSoft 2.0 Deluxe Only:

sLINK Microhost for VST/AU Plugin Support
sLINK™ Technology allows StroboSoft to be used as a VST/AU plug-in in your favorite DAW. (ProTools users require a VST wrapper.)

Tap Tuning Feature
Tune backboards, tone bars, and braces with ease without the need for an external compressor to increase the note sustain. Simple interface allows quick and efficient set-up. 'Average' function increases measurement success by eliminating measured outliers.

Detachable Strobe Display
Strobe display can be detached, repositioned and re-sized to allow for a larger strobe display.

Setting Import/Export
Temperaments, instrument tunings, and sweeteners can now be imported/exported to share with other users.

Pitch Graph
Included "Pitch Graph" displays real-time plot of pitch variation; useful for intonation training, for example. Best when used with monophonic sources.

Alternate Skins
Includes 3 "themes" or skins to provide alternative look and feel.

Improved Screen Management
Close button on pop-up windows (Scope, Spectrum, Pitch Graph).

Enhanced Spectrum Analyzer
Added a small marker (a red X) to the spectrum display to indicate approximately which frequency is being measured. (Identifies the fundamental easily.)
