A Single Unit to Practice Both Pitch and Rhythm; Improve Sound and Technique
Melville, NY - - July 21, 2016 - -With cooperative research from Barcelona’s Pompeu Fabra University, and expanding on Korg’s popular practice tool (the TM-50) Korg releases the TM-50TR, a compact high-precision tuner, metronome and tone trainer with the ability to analyze and improve the players sound and technique. Featuring a state-of-the-art Tone Trainer function, which detects and displays in real time not only the pitch, but also the volume and brightness of the users tone, as well as the stability of these aspects, making practice more efficient.
In addition to visual tuning using the meter, the TM-50TR also provides Sound Out and Sound Back functions. The Sound Out function produces a reference tone from the internal speaker or headphones, allowing the user to tune by ear. The Sound Back function generates the reference tone that’s closest to the input sound, letting the user check the pitch simultaneously by eye and ear, enabling the user to tune accurately and develop a stronger sense of pitch.

The TM-50TR lets users choose from fifteen types of metronome rhythms, allowing for training in a diverse variety of styles including classical, rock, and jazz. It contains standard time signature from 0 through 9, and sophisticated rhythms such as duplets, triplets, triplets without the center beat, quadruplets, quadruplets without the center beats.
