The Peterson 490-ST AutoStrobe Tuner includes stretch tuning capabilities for enhanced tuning of stringed or percussive instruments such as the piano, bass, guitar, marimba, steel pan, and others. Only Peterson strobe tuners respond at the speed of light to display relative tuning of any audio source to 0.1 of a cent (1/1000 of a semitone) accuracy. With the new AutoStrobe models such as the Model 490ST, students, technicians, and musicians at all levels can utilize automatic (handsfree) note selection for fast, accurate tuning of instruments. This feature also permits realtime display of intonation to improve performance and listening skills while playing.
Wide selection of preprogrammed stretch files
Tables with optimized tunings for all piano types and sizes takes the drudgery out of piano tuning. Up to 31 additional files may be programmed by the user.
Automatic note selection, automatic image clarity, and contrast control
The 490-ST has internal compensation for optimal viewing over a wide range of source pitch and volume.
Improved clarity for upper and lower register notes
+2/-1 display feature shifts the strobe patterns into more visible middle ranges. Bass note patterns can be displayed two octaves higher and treble note patterns can be displayed one octave lower in strobe display.
Strobe patterns appear at the correct note for Bb, F, and Eb instruments.
External input and through output with mute
For inline, silent tuning during performances.

Comments about Peterson 490-ST AutoStrobe Tuner with Stretch Tuning:
This thing is ridiculous. I messed with one in our campus recording studio. But for as much as this thing cost you could buy a whole computer and specifically modify it to tune different instruments. Or you could buy a thousand pedal tuners and put them in every imaginable place.
