PolyTune Clip vs PolyTune 2 accuracy

Question

Do you plan to introduce software update for PolyTune 2 and PolyTune 2 Mini to improve accuracy to match the accuracy of PolyTune Clip?

+-0.1 cent accuracy of PolyTune 2 (& Mini 2) vs +-0.02 cent accuracy of PolyTune Clip.

Answer

The accuracy of the other PolyTunes cannot be improved with a firmware update as the PolyTune Clip features are based on a brand new crystal oscillator. Indeed, the new the PolyTune Clip is more precise than the PolyTune Pedal series because of the new quartz crystal oscillator that it uses. The accuracy is improved on the strobe mode, regarding the chromatic tuning mode it's the same value as the PolyTune pedals.

Here are the specs:

PolyTune Clip: 

  • Tuning Accuracy – Chromatic tuning mode: ±0.5 Cent 
  • Tuning Accuracy – Strobe tuning mode: ±0.02 Cent

PolyTune 2: 

  • Tuning Accuracy – Chromatic tuning mode: ±0.5 Cent 
  • Tuning Accuracy – Strobe tuning mode: ±0.1 Cent

The accuracy of the polychromatic mode is 3 cents.
