Korg TM50TR-SL Tone Trainer Metronome Tuner (Silver)

Analyze your playing to improve your sound & technique with a tuner or metronome that further improves the quality of your practicing. The TM-50TR tuner/metronome, allows musicians to practice both pitch and rhythm in a single unit It has now taken a major evolutionary leap to new levels. In addition to the existing high-precision tuner functionality, the TM-50TR adds a new tone trainer function which analyses your playing sound in more detail. It detects not only the pitch, but also the volume and brightness of your tone, as well as the stability of these aspects, making it much easier to evaluate your own playing and practice more efficiently. With its ability to give you more detailed feedback on your playing, the TM-50TR will take your daily practice routine to the next level.

Tone Trainer Function

In addition to its high precision as a tuner, the TM-50TR features a new "Tone Trainer" function that can evaluate your sound in even greater detail. When you play a sustained note on your instrument, the TM-50TR will detect not only the pitch, but also the dynamics (volume) and brightness (tonal character). These three elements are displayed in the TM-50TR’s meter in real time. When you finish playing the note, the stability of each of these three elements is shown in a graph, allowing you to see at a glance whether your sound is stable.

By analyzing these three basic elements of sound, including tuning, the TM-50TR can identify which aspects of your playing need improvement, thus helping you practice more efficiently. The Tone trainer function is based on Korg's new artistry technology. This is proprietary technology for analyzing and evaluating sound that was developed through cooperative research under the supervision of Xavier Serra, Director of the Music Technology Group at the Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona, Spain.

Sound Out Function

In addition to visual tuning using the meter, you can use the sound out function to produce a reference tone from the internal speaker or headphones, and tune by ear. You can specify the reference tone in a three-octave range from C3 (130.81 Hz) to C6 (1046.50 Hz), which covers a wide variety of instruments.

Sound Back Function

The TM-50TR provides a sound back function that's ideal for further training your sense of pitch. The reference tone that's closest to the note you play into the tuner is played back to you through the speaker, and the pitch of your input is simultaneously shown in the meter; this lets you check the pitch simultaneously by eye and ear, enabling you to tune accurately and also helping you develop an accurate sense of pitch.

Simultaneously Use

The TM-50TR lets you use the tuner function and metronome function simultaneously. For example, if you're doing rhythm training along with the sound of the metronome, and feel that the tuning of your instrument might have drifted, you can turn on the tuner function while letting the metronome continue running. This lets you simultaneously train two elements that are indispensable for any instrumental performance: your sense of pitch and your sense of rhythm.

Periodic Metronome Function

The TM-50TR features a new Periodic metronome function that further develops your sense of rhythm and is ideal for training. This function repeatedly alternates between sounding and silencing the metronome for the specified number of measures, so that you can keep playing during the silent measures to see how well your own performance has kept time with the metronome when it resumes sounding. The cycle between sound and silence can be adjusted in a range of 0-4 measures (with a setting of 0 the function is off). This is a great way to test whether you are accurately keeping the rhythm during your performance.
