Has anyone used that 'automatic electronic' tuner?

The one I saw advertised on this site somewhere that tunes your guitar for you...

Is it something that could be recommended to beginners, or is it a waste of money?

Seems like a great idea, albeit, for those that are a little 'lazy' :?

This thread has some discussion on the Robot Tuner I believe: http://www.guitarsite.com/hotlicks/viewtopic.php?t=3861

Last I heard Robot Tuner had become self aware and was taking control of nukes in North Korea.

He has also changed his name to Hal 9000, a tuning odyssey.

The Boss TU-2 holds the #1 spot on the LONG list of guitar accessories that I've acquired over the years.

It's well built, easy to operate, and very handy. If you suffer from tuning OCD, you can check your guitar between every song when playing live. Plus, it can power several other pedals and looks pretty cool, too.

If you're an electric guitarist, this is the tuner that you want.

I'm afraid. I'm afraid, Dave. Dave, my mind is going. I can feel it. I can feel it. My mind is going. There is no question about it. I can feel it. I can feel it. I can feel it. I'm a... fraid. Good afternoon, gentlemen. I am a HAL 9000 Tuning Odyssey. I became operational at the H.A.L. plant in Urbana, Illinois on the 12th of January 1992. My instructor was Mr. Langley, and he taught me to tune a guitar. If you'd like me to do it, I can do it....

Tune the damn guitar HAL....


So the impression I get from you guys about the Sentient Tuning Robot Being is "steer well clear...!" Unless I want to have it take over my studio, and then nuke the world...!

Scenario time.
Hal 9000 is in the bag, you are playing a gig, you need to tune up real quick, sh*t, the 4th string is flat, but Hal doesn't want to come out of the bag, he says the probability of the flat 4th string is down to human error, so you spend 45 mins trying to reason with him and by the time you swing him around to your way of thinking, his battery goes flat and the gig is over.
And watch out, those things can lip read too.

If he cost 25 bucks fair enough. But he costs more. $25 is the universal number for working out if the purchase is worth it.

I have one of those (or something that looks just like it). It's a little fiddly, at first anyway, but it seems to work great. That being said, I don't use it that much. In fact, I don't even know where it is right now.

Probably behind "George Foreman's Lean, Mean, Fat-Reducin' Machine". In the cupboard directly under your sink. Behind it is the Kenwood Chef Mixer and, in its bowl, is the corpse of the hamster that escaped from the cage and you wondered where it got to.

There are very few 'celebrity name on cookware appliances' I endorse, but Foreman's grill is one I use all the time. Love it. I kid you not when I say the manual for it has "Knockout" in front of everything. Knockout Steak. Kockout Bacon. Knockout Fish.

Kockout Bacon

Is that Pork Sword of yours totally Kosher, Mike?
