The Unity Tuner is a true "on-stage" tuner for any gig. Part of the Rocktron Boutique Series of stomp boxes, the Unity Tuner lets you easily see what note you are tuning, no matter what the playing situation. Several red LEDs are also used to help you easily determine if you are sharp or flat and by how much.
Photocells are unique to the Unity Tuner. These photocells sense the lighting situation you are performing in and adjust the brightness of the LED Note Display to accommodate that lighting. When you are playing outside on a sunlit stage, the photocells sense that the area is bright and increase the LED intensity making the LEDs brighter and easier to see. The opposite effect happens when playing in a dark, low lit situation. The photocells sense that the lighting is low and dim the LED Note Display making it easier on the eyes.
The Unity Tuner is equipped with a "STROBE" function for those who require extremely accurate tuning. The STROBE function is a sensitive tool that really allows you to dial in the exact tuning.
Two outputs are provided as well. The jack marked "OUTPUT" provides a constant signal path to other effects or amps when you turn on the tuner. This allows you to hear what you are tuning through your amp. When the "OUTPUT (MUTE)" is used, the Unity Tuner cuts the signal to the next effect or amp and allows you to tune in silence. This is a very useful on-stage tool.
The "note LED bank" of blue LEDs will display the note being played or tuned, while the black display window houses the LEDs and controls for the Unity Tuner.
An IN TUNE green LED will light when the note being played is "in tune".
Red LEDs show if your note is sharp or flat, and if the note being played is sharp, the sharp (#) symbol will "light".
A Calibrate button allows calibration of the tuner to match pitch of any instrument or audio source (like an old piano or tape player).
A 9VDC Input jack provides 9VDC power to the pedal from the Rocktron DC OnTap Universal Power Adaptor (sold separately). A 9V Alkaline battery may also be used.
The Unity Tuner is housed in a rugged metal road-worthy chassis.
