tuning guitar

Tweaking Tuning on on a guitar or studio instrument - limits of what can be done?

I cut a lead improv over a bass track & rhythm track I laid down and ended up being surprised with the result (enough not to delete). There's a couple areas where there's some tuning anomalies - partly due to the fact the guitar was a fully floating Floyd Rose that I hadn't locked into hardtail mode and that I cut this at the end of a rather long playing session. This is particularly obvious on a couple of intervals and a few unison bends (which I tried to avoid playing) - What I don't know is if this kind of stuff can (or would be) fixed in the mix.

which tuning would you use for each guitar listed?

i just put this in this forum section because I use a Mbox to Logic. I usually don't mic any amps just use the guitar amp simulators provided tweaked to my liking on the channel.
that being said, here are a few guitars I have and a tuning list I want to use for my recordings. those recordings would be rock to modern metal kinda stuff.

guitars: Gibson SG standard, stock pickups
Gibson SG special, jb57 and jazz
ESP viper -400 EMG 81/85
ESP mh-400 EMG 81/85

tunings: standard, drop C, drop A

Guitar Rig - change tuning?

Hi, is it possible to change tuning of guitar in real time using native instruments guitar rig? For example, want to learn song that is down a half step. I want to plug into guitar rig and tell it half step down and off I go. So, this needs to be in real-time. It doesn't look like guitar rig could do this, maybe not possible for processing reasons. Any other programs out there?
I understand that it probably is not possible to alter string tuning, but to drop the whole thing down a half step equally seems possible.

sweetened tuning for guitar

Hey Everyone

I'm sure some of you have heard about this...but my tech just turned me onto it last week (better late than never) and it stopped my ever constant quest for perfect intonation in its tracks

As you know I'm a recording songwriter, not a salesman for a tuner company but I just gotta point this out in case someone out there could use it

f&*king awsome! :D
