1.0 out of 5 stars no snow leopard support & no plan to add 14 Nov 2010
By horrorbiz - Published on Amazon.com

Bought this a year ago and, while Amazon's description says this supports Mac OSx 10.4 and above, this does not work on Snow Leopard. I've talked to Peterson support, but they could only confirm that it's not Snow Leopard compatible. They also went on to say that there isn't a plan to add support because they have moved their resources towards developing their iPhone tuner. They couldn't actually offer me anything better than a discount on a hardware tuner that was used for demos. This was like throwing money away, with nothing to show. I'd love to hear if this works for Windows users.
I gave it one star because the feature set, had it worked, looked very promising.
3.0 out of 5 stars not working yet for what i want 13 Dec 2013

5.0 out of 5 stars Best tuner I've ever used! 8 Oct 2013
By Stephen - Published on Amazon.com

Best tuner I've ever used, bar none. I know it sounds crazy to get excited over a tuner, but it's exciting in a really weird way to take an "in tune" guitar (with a different tuner, Guitar Rig 4's built in, and a Snark physical tuner), and fix the tuning so that it's REALLY in tune.

Great for tuning, great for intonation, simply the best tuner I've ever used (I know I said that already, but it's true)!
