The  dawn of the the new guitar revolution is here. Music and audio  innovator Peavey Electronics® proudly announces the immediate  availability of the Peavey AT-200™ guitar featuring Auto-Tune® for Guitar. The AT-200, a collaboration between  Peavey and world-renowned Auto-Tune pitch-correction technology creators  Antares Audio Technologies, is a new musical instrument that  electronically self-tunes and intonates continuously as you play.

With  the simple push of a button on the Peavey AT-200, guitar players can  now create music in perfect tune and pitch. The Peavey AT-200 utilizes  Antares Auto-Tune for Guitar, a DSP technology that works behind the scenes to bring the  clarity of perfect pitch to a quality instrument in an unobtrusive  manner. No bulky, unattractive hardware weighs down the playing  experience - the Peavey AT-200 looks, plays and sounds just like a conventional guitar, exactly the way it should.

Just  as Auto-Tune changed how vocals are recorded, the Peavey AT-200 with  Auto-Tune for Guitar will forever change the way guitars are played and  recorded. Players won't have to stop to retune during live performances. Producers and engineers  will no longer waste precious time on tuning and intonation issues  during recording sessions. With the AT-200 guitar, perfect pitch is the  new standard.
The  Peavey AT-200 is also the gateway to a growing collection of powerful  new Auto-Tune for Guitar features. With its built-in software upgrade  capability, new features from Antares can be easily loaded into the AT-200 and controlled by any  MIDI source, from MIDI foot switch controllers to iPad or iPhone devices  running dedicated Auto-Tune control software.

Combining  Peavey's 47-year legacy of innovation in music and audio with Antares'  history of creating game-changing audio technologies is a natural  partnership, said Peavey Electronics founder and CEO Hartley Peavey.

"Peavey  has always been a 'different' kind of company, one that is driven by  the desire to innovate and advance the possibilities in music and audio,  while serving players and professionals with attainable, quality products," said Peavey.  "Partnering with Antares to bring their revolutionary Auto-Tune  technology to guitars is the gateway to the next generation of music  creation. As always, we're proud to be leading the way."

As  countless players and producers know, less-than-perfect intonation can  seriously muddy a guitar's tone. The Peavey AT-200 guitar with the  Antares Solid-Tune™ intonation system constantly monitors the precise pitch of each individual string  and electronically makes any corrections necessary to ensure that every  note of every chord and riff is always in tune, regardless of variables  like finger position or pressure. The technology is even smart enough to know when players intend to manipulate pitch, so  bends and vibrato sound as natural as they always have. As a result,  listening to a guitar with Solid-Tune is a revelation, offering a purity  of tone that has simply never before been possible.

"We  knew that our Auto-Tune had the power to change the sound of guitars,  creating sonority and clarity," said Dr. Andy Hildebrand, founder of  Antares Audio Technologies. "Partnering with a company revered for quality and reliability like  Peavey was very important to this project. Peavey has been a leader in  musical instruments for decades, and the AT-200 with Auto-Tune for  Guitar is a high-quality guitar that any musician can appreciate."

Peavey's  legacy of innovation includes pioneering the use of computers in guitar  making and in creating the first digitally configured and controlled  audio system. In addition, Peavey's ReValver™ amplifier modeling software has changed the  way musicians and producers think about recording guitar tone forever.

The Peavey AT-200 electric guitar is available now from authorized Peavey retailers. Please visit www.peavey.com/dealerlocator to find a dealer near you.
