Korg has announced a new addition to its ever-popular tuner range, the TMR-50, which combines a chromatic tuner and metronome with a built-in recorder that can tape up to 20 minutes of audio.
All-in-one practice tools like this aren't a new idea, but this is one of the more compact versions we've seen. The TMR-50 has a fairly comprehensive metronome with 15 rhythms and a tempo range of up to 252BPM, plus a tuner that can handle an eight-octave note range.
On top of this, it can record up to 100 tracks using the built-in mic or jack input and will also feature a USB port to transfer audio files and date to a computer, which, with that 20 minute limit, we wager you'll need to do fairly frequently. There's also a loop function, for playing back recorded tracks and going over specific regions.
Korg does this kind of thing exceptionally well usually and its tuners can be found zipped into guitarists' gig bags the world over. That said, we'd like to see the firm bring this kind of tool to iOS/Android in software form.
