Re: Guitar tuning
Gibson makes/sells an auto-tuning guitar. They don't seem to be highly rated on the guitar sites that I checked. I have a number of head-stock mounted tuners (one per instrument). They all work reliably, differening only in display, size, and battery life. As for dynamically tuning during a played note, that's a non-starter. It is common to bend the string to intentionally alter the pitch and I don't want some computer deciding what I wanted for a particular note.

Re: Guitar tuning
I have a guitar tuner that senses vibration in the neck. The nice thing about that is because it senses vibration and doens;t liste for sound, you can use the tuner in noisy places. Mine is not in the link above because apparently it's been replaced. The tuner built into a capo looks cool and useful.

Re: Guitar tuning
@RedDerek - like auto-tune for singers. Of course, it does tend to take away from the need for skill in the artform. In other words, I like the idea of a guitar tuner when used initially (before you start playing), but not after.

Re: Guitar tuning
Analog is little complicated if compared to digital apart from fact that computers do things faster analog still keeps its resemblance safe, DSPs are trying to get faster while only analog circuits can do serious signal processing at high frequencies.

Guitar tuning
I like the guitar tuning concept. It could be applied to all types of string instruments where by the system can detect where the finger is placed, it would monitor for that frequency and adjust the tension automatically to meet that note.

If playing, the system could almost tune dynamically and keep the instrument in tune throughout the performance.

Flip-side... if some bug works in, it could make the music really off key. :-)

There’s a further cool thing you can do with a spreadsheet that most SPICEs can’t. That’s to use the spreadsheet ‘solver’ functionality to adjust component values in the search for a better-fitting circuit – or even to find a set of component values for a circuit you can’t otherwise design.
Infineon MOSFETs have been embedded into PC boards by Schweizer Electronic AG
You now need to adjust component values to achieve some system goal, such as predefined frequency response or time behaviour, and there’s no closed method for working out those values.
As a member of the electronics design community, I am angry and disappointed with the recent deaths of 346 people due to the Boeing MAX 8 design
The theoretical advantages of GaN-based power transistors are now being realized in mainstream system designs. Power supplies for data centers and telecom switching racks are two application areas where GaN transistors show significant improvement in comparison to systems using best-in-class Silicon-based Superjunction devices.
