    Yeah Im searching for a Rack tuner. Sabines seem to get higher reviews then Korgs... Any specific models that you all suggest?

    In my experience with them, I never liked the Sabines. I found the Korgs easier to use and read.

    I'm using a Korg DTR-2, never a problem.

    Though, this should be in Misc. IMO.

    BTW, I use a Korg, not sure which model right now, but I have been very happy with it. I have owned it for a few years and it has worked perfectly.

    I currently own both the Korg DTR-1000 and the Sabine RT7000 (obviously used with seperate rigs).

    Personally, I like the Sabine better. Seems a little more straight forward to me. If I didn't know better, I'd swear I tune faster with the Sabine. Kinda' hard to explain, but the Korg's meter tends to bounce around a little more, which may be attributed to the fact that it's designed to be more precise. However, I've never had tuning issues with either one, and they both appear to be of decent quality, so I recommend you just buy whichever one matches your rig better. :D
  7. Exactly.

    There's a point to where the Korg is "too accurate" for it's own good. You spend a lot of time bouncing between flat and sharp of "on."

    Do a search and you'll find like 20 of these threads from the past week or so.
