The KORG TM-50C: a set consisting of the TM-50 combo tuner/metronome that’s packaged with the convenient CM-200 contact mic – the perfect partner for your daily instrumental practice.The Korg TM series allows you to use the tuner and metronome simultaneously. Since this single unit is all you need for both pitch and rhythm training, it has become a favorite lesson tool for brass bands as well as many other types of musicians. The TM-50 is the latest model, featuring a two-level backlight that enhances the visibility of the LCD display. It uses a newly designed needle-style LCD for excellent response, and even greater tuning accuracy.
In a first for this series, the entry-level model provides the Sound Back function that allows the speaker to generate the reference tone that’s closest to the input sound, giving you a great way to develop and refine your sense of accurate pitch. Available in a choice of two colors, black or pearl white, the TM-50 is the perfect daily practice partner that will support your development as a performer.
In response to the audio input, the Sound Back function plays the nearest reference tone from the speaker while showing the discrepancy in the meter – ideal for developing your sense of pitch
The tuner can be used not only to detect and inform you of pitch discrepancies, but also as a tool that helps you develop the ability to hear and produce the correct pitch. That’s why the TM-50 provides the proprietary Sound Back function* that until now has been featured only on Korg’s high-end tuners. Detecting the pitch of your audio input, this function sounds the nearest reference tone from the speaker while the meter shows the pitch difference between your input and the reference tone. Since the pitch is indicated in both visual and audible form, this not only allows you to tune more accurately, but is also an ideal method for training your sense of pitch. Developing your ear in this way is an indispensible way to practice, especially for the beginner.
*This function is available for input via the INPUT jack or when using earphones.
