Korg announced the latest addition to its line of metronomes -- the MA-30 Digital Metronome. The MA-30 is a multi-function digital metronome with a modern design in a compact, easy-to-use format.
The MA-30 has an adjustable volume control and features a tempo range of 40-208 beats per minute. Thirteen different rhythm patterns, such as duplets, triplets, triplets with inner beats omitted, quadruplets, and quadruplets with inner beats omitted, are provided for practicing a variety of musical styles. Twelve reference pitches (C4-B4) and a wide calibration range (413Hz-420Hz, 438Hz-445Hz in 1Hz units) are also included, allowing for easy pitch adjustment to suit the type of music being played.
Additional features include a Tap function for quickly setting tempo, a unique Memory backup function that automatically remembers tempo, beat, calibration and reference pitch settings when the power is turned off, a highly visible liquid crystal pendulum, and a 1/8" earphone jack for private practice.
The MA-30 has an extremely long battery life (approximately 250 hours of continuous use from two AAA batteries), measures a compact 4.09"(W) x 2.52"(D) x 0.59"(H), and weighs .17 lbs. (including batteries).
The Korg MA-30 is currently available with a suggested retail price of $32.00.
