My Pitchblack has always been really good, but I just replaced it with a TU3 as I wanted a buffer.

Now we're getting somewhere.
I suspected this but if it's true, surely the interwebz would be alive with pitchforks?

I've found the TC Polytune to be pretty accurate. It certainly helps to quickly isolate the strings that need a tweak.

My experience is they are quick on single,useless on poly. Have a pitch clip I use all the time,but poly is hopeless.same goes for the pitchblacks and floor polytunes I've had. Clip on tuners getting confused is understandable though,lots of vibration 📳 to try sort out :)

No. Tor's video was adamant that cocking up the download would kill the pedal.
Guess what....

I am uncharacteristically pissed about this. :roll:
