The Art of Sweetened Tuning – Viola da Gamba
Peterson tuners feature unique Sweetener™ presets not found in any other brand of tuner. This comes from an almost 70-year legacy that reaches back to the dawn of popular music as we know it today.
Decades of research and the experience of musicians the world over have led to the creation of the “Sweetener”, a system of preset tuning offsets designed for specific instruments, only available on Peterson tuners, and used worldwide wherever precise and professional results are expected.
The LUT Sweetener is set to 1/6th Comma Meantone, a temperament commonly used among players of Early Music. The LUT Sweetener itself is preset over 12 tones; however, with the new Peterson StroboPlus HD, users can use the Peterson Connect utility to program the tuner to include enharmonic notes too – up to 24 notes within the same preset!
