My guitar doesnt have really great intonation, but after years of careful tuning i have found the best compromise to sound okay. Usually 3rd string needs to be around 2.5 cents flatter (than what an accurate tuner would say is perfect) open to sound acceptable fretted up the neck, 5th needs to be 1 cent flat, etc. It's different for each string.
do this with StroboClipHD by creating a new, customized, tuning which is exactly the way you like it - with 3rd string 2.5 cents flatter, etc. You can in fact make custom tunings adjusting in steps of 0.1 cent. Once you have this custom tuning created and saved, you choose it and when you tune your guitar, it will stop the stroboscope when it is in tune for each string according to that customized tuning scheme.
Since the StroboclipHD manual does not mention how to do this (Peterson assumes you have knowledge about their other products), I will write out what you have to do for a one-time setup to be able to create many customized tuning in any way you want (as well as update firmware and use other tools from the Peterson website).
1. You will need, after buying your StroboclipHD tuner, to create a free account and register you tuner on the Peterson website.
2. Using Google Chrome web browser, go to https://www.petersontuners.com/connect/
and download and install the "Peterson Connect" add-in for Chrome.
3. Make sure you have a USB cable where one end can connect to your computer and the other end is a micro-USB end so it can connect to your tuner's micro-USB port.
4. Connect the tuner to your computer, with the Chrome browser pointing at https://www.petersontuners.com/connect/
, and turn on the tuner. (you have previously logged-on into your account).
5. Confirm the tuner it will recognise (if that comes up), and then you should be able to see this:
6. (your firmware will be automatically updated if it is not the latest version)
7. Once all this is done, you can click on "Design Custom Sweeteners" and add your custom tuning. The Add-on saves in to your tuner.
All this and more, in detail, is described and demonstrated in this video:
