It's a tuner. Works just as well as my rack Korg...should be free though, would be a nice gesture on behalf of UA as this is a utility and probably didn't require much R&D.
In general terms, I'm a total fan of UA. Recently, UA gave me a $25 coupon for answering a survey. So with that, I got the Tuner. Couldn't be cheaper for me, for sure! As a guitar player, it's convenient to have a tuner in the console's inserts. I was expecting something of great ease of use and and accuracy, a standard of AU. What can I say? It's OK, but nothing really appealing. My iphone App, Cleartune, or my little $8 Snark Tuner(on sale at sweetwater!) are handier to use. More guitar friendly.
Bottom line: can't beat the price when bought with a coupon. But a bit disapointing from our favorite plug ins designer.
It's a tuner, it works well, very precise, decent for detail work (intonation settings on guitars for example).
It does nothing more than most freeware, although better than some (not all).
Bought it to stay within the platform, however...
this should really be free.
Not general freeware, but the cost of getting into the system should cover it.
This is not something that takes the in depth modeling the rest of the line does...
They are sounding more natural than many Amp Sims i know and own but to be honest, there is still a BIG difference to current State of Art Digital Tones that Axe FXII and Kemper KPA delivers.The Response of both is quite natural, but the highs tend to sound harsh and fizzy, the harmonic structure especially in the distortion channels quite doesnt sound very pleasing. Most of the supplied presets are sounding dark and muffled (imho)I find the "recording chain" less intuitive and too static
The latest releases of Pulteq EQs and the LA-2a and 1176 Collection does sound so amazing, and have those full and rich analog sound, that this engl amp sims greatly miss, they just sound digital. hopefully the gonna invest more time and evolve them.

Simple but very helpful.
I would have liked to have a reference tone as sometimes quicker to tune by ear and saves me from setting up virtual instruments.
Like the idea of changing the hz although could have more experimental frequencies such as 432hz, Pythagorean and Fibonacci.
Despite the negatives it has been an essential tool for me and happy to have bought it.
Not a bad little tuner but i would like more tuning options such as 432hz as A instead of choosing between 438hz and 442hz.
It works. I feel the tuner needs to hold the notes longer. I run a compressor in front to make the notes last longer. Seems like something they could adjust in the plug so it responds to lower level signals.
I've run the demo's for both plugins and found the E765 RT more useable. It had better tone for standard rock and pop. If I was going to buy one of the two of these plugins, it would be the E765 RT, but it's not all good though. Both guitar amp sims are DSP hogs and you need to be careful about how many you run in a session. Also, if you tweek the controls too much while Pro Tools is running, your CPU resource spikes and the session halts. Not good. The E646 VS has been described here as being better suited to 'metal' and would tend to agree with that. I'd imagine Metal guitarists playing through the E646 VS would find it ok though; but as a re-amp plugin, it just doesn't hit the mark in the same way as the E765 RT does in the mix.
It's handy to have. It does what it's supposed to.its cheap but it should be free
This tuner seems slow and hard to trust. If you want a good tuner, get cleartune for iPhone. 1/4 the price and 5 times better. Love almost everything else UAD though :)
First of all the design and usability are perfect. Great and easy to use and you've got some nice addons like the Delay for example.
The issue for me is the sound. The simulations are realistic enough but sound not well defined and a bit blurry. The attack is bad, the sound is a bit hollow and the EQ does not help too much. Still prefer my LePou sims. Hopefully UA will solve some of these issues in the future because quality does not justify the price.
At last I'm able to tune an instrument whenever I want. I have the bx-tuner live on all 4 inputs of my Apollo which is set up: Elec gtr thru the softube amp on input1, bass gtr oninput2, vocal mic on input 3 and ac gtr mic on input4. There's always something that will pick up my guitar although the meter ballistics are very touchy. I wouldn't possibly use it in Logic Pro X as, like the other UAD plugins, it would require me to run at a huge buffer rate and cast me back to the 90s when DAWs were slow and clunky. While firewire is the only way for an Apollo to work with a Mac Pro the UAD platform is just impractical for in-DAW plugins in commercial environments. Hopefully thunderbolt, when it arrives will allow us to use 128 or 64buffers.
