Korg Beatlab Mini Metronome & Rhythm Trainer
Cat: 631801 Rel: 27 Jan 17
 
Metronome & rhythm trainer designed for the drummer & percussionist
Notes: Rhythm practice using a metronome is indispensable for any musician, especially for the drummer and percussionist. In the past, rhythm practice has been excruciatingly dull and boring, consisting simply of striking a practice pad in time with a metronome. Furthermore, since you have only a subjective judgement as to whether or not your rhythm is correct, many players find it difficult to keep themselves motivated to practice.

That's where the BEATLAB mini comes in; it's a training tool that lets you practice rhythm more accurately and enjoyably. In addition to a versatile metronome function that includes a wide range of sounds, including human voice and real drum pattern sounds, this unit provides a training function that detects and evaluates the discrepancy between the metronome and the notes that you play. This means that you can develop a perfect sense of rhythm by using by treating rhythm training as if you were playing a game.

Metronome function with a generous selection of patterns:
The BEATLAB mini provides a generous selection of the rhythm patterns that are indispensable for practicing a percussion instrument. The tempo can be adjusted over a wide range of 30-300 beats per minute, and you can specify the time signature and rhythm individually to meet your rhythm training needs for a variety of songs and styles. In addition to conventional electronic metronome sounds, there's also a rich range of PCM sounds. Mechanical metronome sounds that won't fatigue your ear even at high-volume listening, male and female voices that make it easy to tell your beat within the rhythm, and realistic drum pattern sounds with snare, cymbal and claves are some of the 30 available choices, meeting the needs of drummers and percussionists in any musical style.

Training function that check and improve your sense of rhythm:
The BEATLAB mini provides a training mode that lets you objectively check your own sense of rhythm. If you connect the included contact mic to the unit's TRIGGER jack and attach it to your snare or practice pad, the BEATLAB mini detects the sound of your strikes and measures the slight discrepancy in tempo between your playing and the sound of the metronome. The amount of the discrepancy is indicated audibly. For example, if a male or female voice is selected, you'll be informed whether you're "TOO FAST" or "TOO SLOW"; if you're correct, the voice tells you plainly "GOOD," "GREAT," "WONDERFUL," or "PERFECT." This lets you check your own rhythm in real time with ease.. After evaluation, your score at keeping the rhythm and your overall tendencies are shown in the display, allowing you to monitor your progress as you continue to practice.

How strictly your rhythm is evaluated and the trigger sensitivity can be adjusted in detail to correspond with your ability and the devices with which you're practicing. From the beginner who has just started their instrument up to the veteran who just wants to verify their rhythmic sense, the BEATLAB mini will support your rhythm training as your very own dedicated and personalized trainer.

Timer/Stopwatch function can be used in a variety of ways:
A timer function and stopwatch function are provided for convenience in time-keeping during rehearsal, when you're performing on stage, or for any other purpose.

High-volume built-in speaker and headphone output:
A volume adjustment dial is provided for the built-in speaker and headphone output, and there's plenty of volume to meet the needs of the percussionist. You can use the rhythm trainer with a constantly audible metronome sound that won't be drowned out by the sound of your drums or percussion.

Large backlight LCD display:
The large LCD shows the metronome movement and settings at a glance, and the high-brightness backlight ensures great visibility. The unique disk-shaped body is easy to grip with one hand, and the numerous physical buttons mean that you have quick access to all the functions.

Two-way clip that holds with a variety of use-cases:
A clip with excellent holding power is provided on the rear surface of the lightweight and compact BEATLAB, so you can attach it directly to your belt in a position that won't get in your way while performing. Pulling out the clip transforms it to a stand, letting you place the unit in a stable position on a table. Also provided is a convenient strap hole that's convenient when using the unit as a stopwatch.

Includes a contact microphone for trigger detection:
The CM-200 high-sensitivity contact mic is included for trigger detection. You can attach this mic to your practice pad or snare, or even to a magazine or table; any object that the clip will grip to transmit to transmit its vibration. The moment you get your BEATLAB mini, you can immediately start accurate rhythm training wherever you are.

Korg CA50 Chromatic Tuner (white)
Cat: 675886 Rel: 15 Mar 18
 
Portable, pocket-sized, high-precision chromatic tuner
Notes: The CA-50 features high-precision tuning functionality and a slim and compact design. The new CA-50's display is now, even easier to read. Long considered the standard in chromatic tuners, the CA-50 offers simple and intuitive operation and a satisfying tuning experience for every instrumentalist.

The LCD screen of the CA-50 shows a needle-type meter to quickly and accurately show the pitch, and provides a note name indication in the middle of the display. The note name indication is now larger and even easier to read. This ensures simple and smooth operation even for beginners.

The CA-50 features a detection range of A0 (27.50 Hz) to C8 (4186.01 Hz). For wind instruments from piccolo to tuba, or string instruments from violin to contrabass, you can tune band or orchestral instruments of any pitch range. A high-sensitivity mic is built in, allowing the note name to be detected accurately even without a contact mic. By using the separately sold CM-200 contact mic, you can tune with confidence that nearby sounds will not affect the result.

The calibration function supports a variety of concert pitches. It can be adjusted in 1 Hz units in the range 410-480 Hz, allowing flexible tuning that matches the song or key.

The meter scale of the CA-50 provides marks that indicate pure major and minor third intervals. By tuning to these marks you can play beautiful harmonies when you're in an ensemble. This is convenient not only in a brass band or orchestra, but also for vocal or a cappella practice.

The "Sound Out" mode lets you listen to a reference tone emitted by the internal speaker, allowing you to tune by ear. A reference tone in the range of C4 (261.63 Hz) to C5 (523.25 Hz) can be output. You can check the pitch using both eye and ear, allowing you to tune more accurately, and also providing an ideal method of training your sense of pitch.

The CA-50 can be used for approximately 135 hours (when using zinc-carbon batteries). When the remaining battery capacity runs low, the display shows an indicator, letting you know that it's time to replace the batteries.

A new mechanism reduces the possibility that the unit will overturn, making it less likely that the tuner will slide off and fall when placed on a music stand. You'll be able to concentrate on your playing without fearing that the tuner might fall during the performance.

The memory backup function remembers the calibration and sound out mode settings even when the power is turned off. (Settings are initialized when you replace the batteries.) The auto power off function automatically turns off the power when 20 minutes have passed without sound being input.

The folding stand allows the tuner unit to be more stable on its own. The sliding battery cover is designed as a single piece with the unit itself, so there's no worry that the cover might be lost when replacing the batteries.

Korg Electribe EMX2 Music Production Station (blue version)
Cat: 620852 Rel: 25 Aug 16
 
New version of the classic Electribe music production workstation with Ableton Live Lite software
Notes: The electribe has been reborn including KORG's latest technology distilled from popular products such as the KingKORG, kaossilator, kaoss pad, and taktile. The 200 preset patterns cover House and Techno as well as cutting-edge dance music genres such as Trap and EDM. Another major evolution of the new electribe is support for polyphonic playback, which is indispensable for musical styles that involve complex chord progressions such as House music.

Using the 16 pads placed on the front of the unit, you can create patterns intuitively while actually hearing and seeing the sounds. You can use the pads as a keyboard to realtime-record phrases, and also perform step recording by entering the pitch and rhythmic value one note at a time. The patterns you create can be used in alternate forms as you perform by taking advantage of the "step jump" feature inherited from the volca series, or by changing the "last step" to vary the length of each part.

There's also a "motion sequence" function that lets you record knob and button operations and use them in the pattern that you create. Either drums or synths can now be assigned to each of the 16 parts (i.e., the 16 pads). For example you could create complex rhythms by assigning drums to all of the 16 parts.

Familiar from the kaossilator is the "touch scale" function that lets anyone perform without wrong notes, just by moving a finger across the touch pad. The trigger pads that were popular on the taktile are also provided, making it easy for anyone to create phrases intuitively. The trigger pads can also be used for drum input. Settings allow you to switch velocity on/off.

For the electribe, KORG designed a synth engine that gives you the maximum sound-creating freedom and the fastest sound production. The 409 oscillator waveforms include analog modeling and PCM. The analog modeling synth engine provides a broad variety ranging from simple basic waveforms to complex combinations such as dual, unison, sync, ring modulation, and cross modulation. The PCM sound engine provides mainly rhythm sounds, but also covers multisamples for keyboard. (collaborations with Sample Magic, Loopmasters, Prime Loops are included)

The filters at the heart of the sound-shaping capabilities are inherited directly from the KingKORG, and they use filter algorithms that simulate standard synthesizers so that you can get "the sound" which was used in famous songs, just by selecting the appropriate filter type.

You can also apply filters to drums to create rhythm tracks that are rich in tonal variation. Modulation can make sound-creation more complicated, but we've made it easy by condensing it down to three parameters: simply select a template that specifies an effect and its target, and then adjust the speed and depth of the effect to suit your taste.

The new electribe provides effects such as compression and overdrive for each part, giving you uncompromising control over the nuances of individual sounds that differ subtly between genres. The groove function can be specified for each part, letting you apply a groove to your phrase simply by selecting a template.

The master effects can be controlled from the touch pad just like on the kaoss pad, and they include not only spatial-type effects that shape the overall acoustics but they also include effects that apply aggressively musical transformations such as the "Vinyl Break" effect inherited from the Kaoss pad series, and the newly developed "Seq Reverse" and "Odd Stepper" that change the playback order of the sequencer. These are also extremely effective for live performance. Insert effects can be assigned for individual parts, opening up even more complex sound-design possibilities. There's also a "pattern set" function which lets you switch patterns by pressing trigger pads, and an "event recording" function that records that performance. In addition to MIDI IN/OUT, "Sync IN/OUT" is also provided, allowing synchronized performances with the volca series, monotribe, or MS-20 mini. The unit can run on six AA batteries, so you can easily take it along with you and perform anywhere, providing on-the-go inspiration your musical ideas.

Korg Electribe Sampler ESX 2 Music Production Station (red version)
Cat: 620853 Rel: 25 Aug 16
 
Professional music production station for stage or studio use, including 16 "step-sequencer-style" pads and a large touch pad
Notes: The electribe series lets you play back your carefully constructed patterns while using intuitive operations to add spice and reveal new sonic possibilities. Approximately ten years after the Electribe SX first went on sale, there's now a new sampler in the electribe series that's designed to be simple and easy for the beginner to understand, and even more enjoyable for previous electribe users.

The electribe perfectly fulfills two tasks that both demand speed: live performance and music production

The electribe sampler has been reborn with cutting-edge technology inherited from popular KORG products such as the KingKORG, kaossilator, kaoss pad, and taktile. The internal memory lets you save 250 patterns, including preset patterns which are perfect for today's dance music scene. There's also support for the polyphonic playback that's indispensable for styles that include complex chord progressions, such as House music.

Using the 16 pads placed on the front of the unit, you can create patterns intuitively while actually hearing and seeing the sounds. You can use the pads as a keyboard to realtime-record phrases, and also perform step recording by entering the pitch and rhythmic value one note at a time. The patterns you create can be used in alternate forms as you perform by taking advantage of the "step jump" feature inherited from the volca series, or by changing the "last step" to vary the length of each part.

There's also a "motion sequence" function that lets you record knob and button operations and use them in the pattern that you create.

Either drums or synths can now be assigned to each of the 16 parts (i.e., the 16 pads). For example you could create complex rhythms by assigning drums to all of the 16 parts.

The trigger pads that were popular on the taktile are also provided, making it easy for anyone to create phrases intuitively. The trigger pads can also be used for drum input. Settings allow you to switch velocity on/off.

KORG created a synth engine for the electribe sampler that's perfectly designed to maximize your creativity.

In addition to a sampler sound engine that lets you use your own unique and original sounds (samples), there are also several types of analog modeling sound engines that are great for creating synth basses and pad sounds. There can be up to a total of 999 preset and user samples, and a maximum of 270 seconds of sampling time (calculated as monaural) can be used. The unit is shipped with numerous drum, rhythm/phrase loops, and hit samples included. (collaborations with Sample Magic, Loopmasters, Prime Loops are included)

Modulation can make sound-creation more complicated, but we've made it easy by condensing it down to three parameters: simply select a template that specifies an effect and its target, and then adjust the speed and depth of the effect to suit your taste.

The "Time Slice" function detects attacks within the phrase and slices it appropriately, allowing you to play the phrase at the desired tempo without significantly affecting the sound. Sounds within a sliced part can also be used separately by assigning them to steps or parts. You can even apply an effect to a sample, and then resample it while using the knobs to vary the pitch or modulation.

The new electribe sampler provides effects such as compression and overdrive for each part, giving you uncompromising control over the nuances of individual sounds that differ subtly between genres. The groove function can be specified for each part, letting you apply a groove to your phrase simply by selecting a template.

The master effects can be controlled from the touch pad just like on the Kaoss pad, and they include not only spatial-type effects that shape the overall acoustics but they also include effects that apply aggressively musical transformations such as the "Vinyl Break" effect inherited from the Kaoss pad series, and the newly developed "Seq Reverse" and "Odd Stepper" that change the playback order of the sequencer.

Korg MA2 LCD Pocket Digital Metronome (black & red)
Cat: 703181 Rel: 13 Dec 18
 
Electronic metronome with improved display, loud, crisp sound, and additional functions
Notes: The MA-1, a compact card-type electronic metronome, has been further improved. The MA-2 is an indispensable unit for rhythm training, and solidly covers the functions of a metronome. In addition to basic functionality such a wide tempo range and a generous number of beats and rhythm patterns, it also provides user-friendly features including an improved display, a loud, crisp sound, and additional functions such as a newly provided "timer mode."

Larger and more easily readable display:

The MA-2's display is 30% larger than that of the previous model, drastically improving the visibility.

Shape your sound, bring it anywhere: The microKORG S continues to build on the success of the original.

With a serious sound, ubiquitous design, and superior build quality, the microKORG analog modeling synthesizer became an instant world standard when it was released in 2002. Since then, the microKORG has found its way into the hands of musicians far and wide, and now, receives an update to ensure it will remain one of the world's most beloved synthesizers for years to come.

The new microKORG S features a built-in 2+1 speaker system with power that far exceeds its size. Its body sports an elegant white motif, and features new presets that represent the sounds of a new generation. Beneath the microKORG S's sophisticated exterior hides a sound engine both brutal in strength and universal in application.

Built-in 2+1 speaker system ensures a rich and full sound at any volume:

Inside that compact body of the microKORG, we've included a carefully constructed speaker system consisting of stereo speakers with clear imaging, plus a woofer that emanates a startling amount of low frequency. The chassis uses a new box structure, and the combination of ample box volume and a bass reflex port takes full advantage of the speakers, thereby delivering a rich sense of volume that exceeds the size of the speakers, a clear sense of positioning, and a rich low-frequency range. In addition to the battery-powered operation of the existing model, the inclusion of the built-in speakers allows an easy yet full-fledged performance experience even in an environment where there is no power supply or PA.

Since the speaker box is contained within the chassis of the instrument, the vibrations from the speaker can be felt through your fingertips. This tactile feedback allows you to experience the same subtle and dynamic response as when playing an acoustic instrument or electric piano.

Increased memory, new programs, and additional user programs:

The memory capacity has been increased from the original microKORG. Mainly centered on simple and present sounds that shine on stage, we've added 64 powerful preset programs that meet the needs of the changing music scene, including clearly defined and punchy leads, electric pianos that sound great in an ensemble, and powerful and solid basses. In addition, we've also newly provided 64 additional slots for user programs, so you can save your own original sounds without overwriting the presets. This encourages a sound design process that's ideal for this instrument: select a sound that you like, and edit it.

Elegant new design retains the spirit of the original:

The microKORG's distinctive form has been beloved worldwide for more than ten years. The microKORG S adds speakers, yet carries on the looks and compactness of the original. In addition, the front panel features an elegant white reboot, updated with maple wood for the side panels.

Favorite Select function:

There's a new Favorite Select function that lets you assign up to eight of your favorite programs. Since this lets you instantly recall the sound you need, it makes live performance even more convenient.

All of the functionality of the original microKORG, plus so much more:

This new instrument carries on all of the original microKORG's functionality, including the ease of selecting a program of a desired musical genre and then editing the selected sound, a vocoder with an included miniature microphone, and battery operation that allows you to perform anywhere. As a beginner's first synthesizer that's easy to use, as a supplementary live synth for the stage, or as a sound module for production, the microKORG S will continue to play a role in every music scene around for many years to come.

Korg MicroKorg Synthesizer & Vocoder
Cat: 395777 Rel: 16 Jun 10
 
True synthesiser with analog modelling tone generator & 128 programs for immediate use - includes a full range of effects
Notes: State-of-the-art analog modelling and multi-band vocoding are finally available in a compact, portable instrument. With 37 keys and 128 user-rewritable programs, the microKORG synthesizer/vocoder is perfect for the performer, producer, computer musician or beginner looking for an affordable synthesizer. The new microKORG delivers the quality sounds and features you expect from Korg at a price that will astound you.

The microKORG boasts the same dual-oscillator DSP synthesis engine found in Korg's critically acclaimed MS2000 and offers a wider selection of waveforms than any other modelled synth. Oscillator 1 features a total of 71 waveforms. These include traditional analog waves like saw, pulse, sine and noise, plus more unique choices like Vox wave and cross wave. Together they provide a cool selection that can be modulated to produce an extensive range of timbres. In addition, 64 exclusive DWGS waveforms from Korg's classic DW-8000 enable the microKORG to reproduce a broad collection of imitative sounds. Sounds like bells, electric pianos, guitars, basses and more that would be difficult reproduce on an analog synthesizer. You can also apply Ring and Sync modulation from Oscillator 2 to create the kind of complex timbres that are the true sign of an advanced synthesizer.

4 filter modes are available, offering -12 dB (2-pole) low pass, high pass and band pass configurations plus an extra steep -24 dB (4-pole) low pass setting. All include resonance. 2 classic ADSR envelope generators and two MIDI-syncable LFOs provide the power to shape your sounds. Add a virtual patch matrix that lets you create advanced modulation settings U routing the mod wheel to control filter cutoff or pulse width, using an LFO to control panning or amp level, etc. U and you have performance that is unheard of from a synthesizer in this price range.

The microKORG includes an 8-band vocoder with many advanced features. You can capture and freeze the formants of your voice, and then play it across the keyboard, or shift the formant frequency to make your voice sound male, female, like a child or just plain wacky! Best of all, the microKORG comes with its own microphone so you can start having fun right away.

3 types of modulation effects (chorus/flanger, phaser, ensemble), 3 types of delay effects (stereo, cross, L/R) and a 2-band equalizer add the finishing touch to the microKORG. The delays can be synchronized with the arpeggiator or to an external MIDI clock U a great feature for live performances or for laying down tracks. All effects can be edited to create your own, unique sounds.

Korg have used all of the microKORG's synthesis power in the creation of 128 great-sounding presets. They cover a wide range of the latest musical styles plus many vintage favourites. Sixteen vocoder Programs are also included. The pitch bend wheel, modulation wheel and 5 other knobs provide flexible realtime control over filter cutoff, attack, release and other important parameters. The edit mode allows you to fully edit the existing sounds, or to create your own new ones.

6 types of arpeggio patterns (UP, DOWN, ALT1/2, Random, Trigger) are built in, with control over tempo, gate time, swing, and up to a 4-octave range. You can turn individual steps on or off within a pattern, providing the feel and functionality of a step sequencer.

2 external audio input jacks are provided, so you can run other instruments, CDs and more through the microKORG's filter and effects, allowing you to process sounds in truly creative ways.

The microKORG's compact size is perfect for the musician or DJ looking to add a synth to his or her setup when space is tight. It's also a great choice for use in a computer-based music setup. The five realtime knobs on the front panel can transmit MIDI messages (control changes), so they can be used as controllers for software synthesizers. Use the 37-note velocity-sensitive mini-keyboard for controlling other gear or for recording and editing with your sequencer. And thanks to battery-power, the microKORG is the ultimate portable controller when used with a laptop computer!

There's no complex menu structure - all parameters are located on the panel for easy access to any function. A large dial and LED illuminated buttons provide easy program selection even on a dark stage. With its beige-gold body, wooden side panels and retro-influenced design, the microKORG has a look that's both vintage and funky.

Korg MicroKorg XL+ Synthesizer & Vocoder
Cat: 468414 Rel: 29 Oct 12
 
Keyboard synthesiser
Notes: Vintage and more.

With its unmistakably unique exterior and its inimitable sound, the microKorg set the standard for analog modeling synthesizers. The year 2008 saw the introduction of the microKorg XL, which inherited the microKorg's fat and powerful sounds, while adding keyboard staples such as electric piano and the CX-3 organ. And now, in the next evolutionary step, the microKorg XL+ delivers a fresh update to the sounds and design of the microKorg XL, making it the ideal compact keyboard.

The microKORG XL featured a sound selector that lets you choose your sound using 2 large dials: music genre and instrument category. The new microKORG XL+ offers an additional selection of these music genres to fit today's fast-moving music scene. Now you can select a program that matches your song more intuitively than ever. For even more convenience, you can also leave one of the dials fixed and only use the other dial to make program changes during a song (music genre fixed), or use the dial to select vocoder variations (instrument category fixed).

Lush analog modeled synthesizer sounds that are characteristic of the microKORG have been freshly added to the microKORG XL+. In addition, for band use, the microKORG XL+ comes equipped with the piano sound from Korg's classic stage piano, the SGproX (famous for its ability to stand out in your band's mix), as well as its hard-edged grand-type electric piano. This compact package also includes sounds from the M1 and the VOX organ, vintage tape-type string and flute machines, as well as other gorgeous sounds from keyboard history. Each of these 128 programs are genuinely usable sounds, giving the microKORG XL+ plenty of variety to serve as your main keyboard or of course as a secondary keyboard in your rig.

The microKORG XL+ projects a style that's reminiscent of vintage electric pianos, featuring a futuristic yet retro design with a stylish black panel. High-quality parts such as metal levers, dials that move with an audible click, and knobs with a sturdy operating feel are some of the ways that the microKORG XL+ outclasses other instruments in its range and enhances your experience editing synthesizer sounds.

The microKORG XL+'s sound engine uses MMT (Multiple Modeling Technology), borrowing from Korg's well proven wealth of analog modeling technology. The MMT sound engine has been featured on numerous products, and provides 2 oscillators that generate huge powerful sounds. Oscillator 1 (OSC1) gives you a total of 7 types of oscillator algorithm to choose from, including formant waveforms such as human voice, and PCM/DWGS waveforms for vintage keyboard and strings. It also lets you use techniques that cannot be imitated on typical PCM synthesizers, such as cross modulation, unison, and VPM (Variable Phase Modulation). By taking advantage of modulation (sync or ring) with oscillator 2 (OSC2), it's easy to create complex and powerful sounds.

The microKORG XL+ can function as a powerful vocoder that lets you connect a mic and use its audio input to shape the tonal character of the oscillator's sound to create talking effects. The vocoder consists of a 16-band filter bank that can simulate the vocoder sounds of the past and also shift the filter frequencies (Format Shift function) or adjust the level and pan of each band to dramatically change the sonic character. Using the Vocoder is an easy way to add sounds that can be found in today's popular electronic music. Since a gooseneck microphone is included, you can immediately start using thevocoder in your songs.

2 master effects utilize the effect engine that was brought to perfection in Korg's Kaoss Pad series, giving you a total of 17 powerful effect types including delay and echo effects as well as dramatic effects such as ring modulator and grain shifter. In addition, effects such as delay can be synchronized to MIDI clock for a wide range of possibilities in live performance.

Korg Monotron Delay Analog Ribbon Synthesizer
Cat: 440156 Rel: 04 Feb 12
 
Analogue ribbon portable synthesiser with delay effects
Notes: A good delay was an essential part of the classic analog synthesizer sound. More often than not, that delay came from a tape-style echo machine until affordable digital delays were created. The Monotron Delay is an analog synthesizer optimized for sound effects. In addition to its analog oscillator, filter and LFO, it also provides a space delay that's indispensible for swooping, cosmic sounds. The monotron Delay even reproduces the pitch changes that occur when you vary the delay time, just as though you were using an analog tape echo. This fat and warm delay will add an authentic edge to your analog sounds.

It also features Korg's class VCF filter for full control over your sounds. The distinctive tone of an analog filter (VCF) can dramatically alter and enrich the sound. The Monotron Delay uses the same highly acclaimed VCF circuit as Korg's classic MS-10 and MS-20 semi modular synthesizers. Originally released over 30 years ago, these instruments are still coveted today for their aggressive, dynamic filters. The VCF Cutoff knob sets the frequency or tone of the filter; the VCF Peak knob adds emphasis. A powerful filter is an essential aspect of any analog synthesizer, applying dramatic tonal changes to the sound, and projecting an intense personality that will stand out in any live performance.

Create classic sounding analogue tape delays to add warms and new dimensions to your synth sounds. Also included is Korg's fantastic enhanced ribbon controller keyboard, while a mini jack input also allows you to run any external audio, such as a Kaossilator, digital piano or guitar, through the Monotron Duo. As standard, the Monotron range comes with a powerful built-in speakers and is battery operated for the ultimate portable experience.

The Low Frequency Oscillator (LFO) waveform used to modulate the pitch now offers a choice of waveshapes, which is a new square wave plus the traditional triangle wave. Both the rate (speed) and the intensity (depth) can be adjusted independently. In addition, a trimpot on the back panel can continuously adjust the shape/direction of the triangle wave or the pulse-width of the square wave to deliver even more versatility. Used in conjunction with the delay, the LFO can create dazzling effects and provide unique possibilities for embellishing your songs.

The Monotron Delay's ribbon controller keyboard features a wide, 4-octave range. This design allows the pitch to be controlled even more aggressively and dynamically, making the Monotron Delay a great weapon for a DJ to get the floor moving with irresistible sound. The reversed white keys and body adornments glows under black light illumination, making the monotron Delay ideal for delivering a striking visual impact in nearly any club environment.

The input jack (AUX input) built into the Monotron Delay's compact body allow you to place any audio source into the Monotron Delay's signal path, directly before the analog filter and delay circuit. This provides a great way to connect a Kaossilator, a guitar, or a digital audio player to the Monotron and enjoy tone-bending filter and delay effect.

A miniature speaker is built into the Monotron Delay. Along with the battery operation and compact size, this feature allows you to enjoy the share the Monotron Delay's analog synthesis sound with your friends, anywhere, at any time. There's also a headphone output that you can use when practicing in private, creating sounds at home, recording, or for connecting to an amplifier or PA system.

Korg MS20 Mini Monophonic Analogue Synthesizer
Cat: 480940 Rel: 21 May 13
 
Classic Korg MS20 recreated in miniature size
Notes: Korg's MS-20 monophonic synthesizer, first introduced in 1978, is still a coveted instrument to this day, thanks to its thick, robust sound, its powerful, iconic analog filter, and its versatile patching options. Over 300,000 people have enjoyed the distinct MS-20 sounds from the original, from Korg's MS-20 plugin synth, or the iMS-20 iPad app.

Today, the sounds of the MS-20 have been reborn in hardware, as the MS-20 Mini. The same engineers who developed the original MS-20 have perfectly reproduced its circuitry and fit into a body that's been shrunk to 86% of the original size, yet retains the distinctive look of the original.

The MS-20 mini will amaze you with its absolutely authentic analog synth sound.

The Korg MS-20 Mini features 2 improved lower noise voltage controlled oscillators with selectable waveforms including ring modulation and noise, 2 voltage controlled high and low pass filters, 2 voltage controlled amplifiers, 2 envelope generators and an LFO. Part of the appeal of the original was its self oscillating, resonant filters that could be driven into distortion. They remain popular to this day and can also be found in the recent monotron and monotribe units as well as on the new MS-20 Mini.

Part of the versatility of the original Korg MS-20 was its flexible patching system, making it semi modular, and this has been recreated for the MS-20 Mini. It allows users to create uniquely complex, evolving, organic sounds by using patch cables to access and change the internal synth architecture, with the front panel flow chart guiding easy operation straight out of the box. Users can even patch external sources via the external signal processor to be processed in the same way as an oscillator, as well as benefitting from the rich harmonics added by the circuitry and filters.

This reissue of a modern classic will be an extremely welcome addition to Korg's current synth line and, with fantastic sound, versatility and ease of use, the MS-20 Mini is sure to win over many fans old and new.

Korg Pitchblack Advance Pedal Guitar Tuner (sparkle red)
Cat: 762152 Rel: 13 Feb 20
 
guitar tuner pedal
Notes: Three new colors have been added to this standard pedal tuner. These are the first KORG tuners to use a powder coating. With its brilliance and depth, this beautiful finish is also extremely durable.

The lineup consists of three colors: sparkle blue (BL), sparkle red (RD), and sparkle white (WH). The color of each unit's sound name indicator LED has also been varied to match the differing body color.

Don't miss this chance to enhance your system with a Pitchblack Advance tuner in a distinctive color that sets it apart from other tuners.

Specifications other than body color and LED color are the same as the usual model of the Pitchblack Advance.

Featuring a slanted design that hints at a new age, the Pitchblack Advance retains the toughness that is characteristic of the series, in spite of becoming even lighter in weight. The display features high-brightness color LEDs, nearly doubling the size of the note name display and providing amazing visibility. Whether you're on a dimly lit stage or outdoors in bright sunlight, this display will always be easy to read.

When using strobe mode, the Pitchblack Advance allows ultra-high-precision tuning with i0.1 cent accuracy. It's a great choice for exacting situations where even slight errors cannot be tolerated, such as in professional recordings or stage performances.

Choose from four meter display modes to suit your playing style. In addition to the standard "Regular mode", you can use "Strobe mode" or "Half-strobe mode" in which the direction and speed of meter movement indicate the pitch change for easy visualization of even minute differences, as well as "Mirror mode" in which two LEDs move from left and right to coincide in the center as you tune.

The true bypass design allows the input sound to be output with absolutely no change (when the tuner is off). In other words, the tuner circuit does not change, degrade, or color your sound in any way. Since the input sound is completely muted when the tuner is on, this unit is ideal for use on stage.

If a separately sold AC adaptor is used, the DC OUT jack can supply power to another effect unit. Since a dedicated power supply circuit is provided for DC OUT, it can provide stable and noiseless 9V 200 mA power.

The Pitchblack Advance provides a stable playing environment for all players. When using a power supply, for example, noise can be caused by interference between different pedals using the same power supply. The Pitchblack Advance is equipped with a circuit that suppresses sudden changes in current, and also applies software control, thereby completely avoiding the occurrence of such noise.

The eight-year journey of the Pitchblack series has brought its high efficiency and long-life design to an even higher pinnacle. With approximately 30 hours on zinc-carbon batteries and approximately 60 hours on alkaline batteries, this new unit achieves ultra-long-life operation that is six times greater than the Pitchblack. Even on a long tour or an extended recording session, it will continue to fulfill its role as your faithful partner.

Specifications other than body color are the same as the conventional model of the Pitchblack mini.

Korg's Pitchblack pedal tuners have earned the trust of guitarists and bassists worldwide for their quality, design and durability. The Pitchblack mini is the latest addition to the renowned tuner series, now available in a smaller, sleek size.

The Pitchblack mini appears smaller in size, yet embodies all of its superior tuner functionality.

Korg Pitchclip 2+ Clip On Tuner (black)
Cat: 741028 Rel: 16 Sep 19
 
Clip-on chromatic guitar/bass tuner with colour LED display
Notes: Even a great performance won't be worth much if the tuning is wrong. Pitchclip 2+ uses approximately 2.5 times as many meter LEDs, compared with Korg's previous model, allowing even more precise pitch adjustment. Basic functionality such as the calibration function and +/- 0.1 cent high-precision tuning (when using Strobe or Half Strobe modes) have also been dramatically improved. Additionally, the display now rotates vertically, allowing for easier viewing.

Covering any instrument from electric to acoustic, from guitar to bass, the Pitchclip 2+ is a clip-on tuner for everyday use that delivers both accuracy and ease.

LED meter boasts detailed display resolution:

The LED meter section now has a significantly increased the number of LEDs, from seven on our previous model (Pitchclip 2) to 17, allowing pitch inaccuracies to be shown in even greater detail. Furthermore, when two adjacent LEDs are lit, their brightness varies to indicate higher or lower pitch.

All note names shown in uppercase characters:

A specially designed 12+1 (=#) segment LED is newly used in order to clearly show a guitar's 4th string (D) and 2nd string (B) in uppercase characters. Even when attached to the back of a guitar's headstock, the unit can be inverted vertically to display uppercase characters.

Position at the best angle for players:

A bent clip can look unsightly when the tuner is attached to the headstock, but the Pitchclip 2+ lets you leave the clip in the same position while you freely adjust only the screen to the best angle for comfortable viewing.

+/- 0.1 cent high-precision tuning:

This tuner supports ultra-high-precision tuning as accurate as i0.1 cents (* when using Strobe mode or Half Strobe mode). By precisely adjusting your pitch, you can feel confident in your tuning and play great-sounding harmonies.

Calibration function:

The calibration function lets you adjust the reference pitch in order to support tuning with a variety of instruments. This gives you the precision and flexibility that you need when performing in an ensemble with other instruments such as an orchestra or a piano.

Reverse display that's convenient for left-handed players as well:

The reverse function lets you vertically invert the meter display so that the characters are shown correctly even when the tuner is attached to the back of the headstock. This is a convenient feature that will be appreciated by left-handed players or by those who attach the tuner to the back of the headstock so it will be less visible from the front.

Strobe and Half Strobe modes:

This tuner is equipped with "Strobe" and "Half Strobe" modes that provide a beautifully flowing LED display. These modes let you resolve pitch discrepancies down to an ultra-precise accuracy of i0.1 cents, so you can tune enjoyably and accurately.

Preview indication when switching meter display modes:

When switching between 1. Regular, 2. Strobe, and 3. Half Strobe modes, a preview indication shows you the specified mode's LED motion for several seconds, letting you use the unit without having to memorize the number corresponding with each mode.

A clip that holds securely:

The clip section is designed to hold the headstock securely. The entire clip is coated with rubber for enhanced adhesion and also to protect your instrument. It will securely fit headstocks of various designs and thicknesses.

Lightweight and long-lasting:

One small and lightweight lithium coin cell battery (CR2032) provides up to approximately 18 hours of continuous operation, and since the tuner weighs less than 20 grams including the battery, you won't notice the weight even if you leave it attached to the headstock while you perform. The auto power-off function automatically turns off the power when no sound has been detected for approximately three minutes, preventing the battery from being used unnecessarily.

16/8-voice analog sound:
The Prologue is a polyphonic analog synthesizer with 8 or 16 multitimbral voices. KORG's analog synthesizer development in recent years has culminated in the Prologue, which was designed using 11,000 discrete electronic components. Although the Prologue is a flagship instrument, it still retains the inviting feel and accessibility of its predecessors. It features a pure analog path, impeccable sound quality, stunning presence unlike any other poly synth, and the same intuitive interface as the Minilogue and Monologue, granting you intuitive access to a vast world of analog synthesis.

The Prologue uses a structure of 2VCO + MULTI ENGINE, 1VCF, 2EG, 1VCA, and 1LFO. In addition to distinctive, original circuitry, such as wave shaping to shape the oscillator's overtones and a sync/ring switch, prologue also features a two-pole low pass filter with enhanced sharpness, drive that adds powerful distortion, and a low cut (high pass) switch. Every detail has been improved on from Minilogue and Monologue. Its sound covers every sonic possibility: fat basses, powerful leads, and the beautiful pads that you expect from a polyphonic synthesizer.

Newly developed multi-engine:
The ingenuity of Prologue goes beyond its analog design. The newly developed multi engine is provided as VCO3, adding digital waveforms and FM. This multi engine, which is equipped with three different sound engines, can be combined with the analog VCOs to expand prologue's sonic potential far beyond that of a traditional analog synthesizer.

Noise generator:
There are four types of noise generator, indispensable for percussive sounds or sound effects. Experience how digital filtering can produce direct changes in the colour of the noise.

VPM oscillator:
The VPM (Variable Phase Modulation) / FM oscillator was newly developed for Prologue. Its metallic and sharp sounds with their complex overtones could never be obtained by analog means. With 16 types of oscillator and the SHAPE knob, you'll be intuitively guided through complex sound design. Combine these wave shapes with Prologue's gorgeous analog filters, and prepare for sounds you never thought possible.

User oscillator:
The user oscillator section lets you load oscillator programs of your own creation. Sixteen slots are provided, and one type of morphing wavetable oscillator is built-in as a preset.

Digital effects:
The high-quality digital effects feature pristine 32-bit floating-point processing, and add a further polish to the sound of the Prologue. With two effect units provided (a modulation effect and delay/reverb), you can choose from a wide variety such as chorus or ensemble, warm tape delay, or diverse reverbs. The user effect slots let you load effect programs of your own creation.

User-customization:
The Prologue offers an SDK (Software Development Kit) that allows developers to program, customize and extend the capabilities of the multi-engine and digital effects and is expected to be available for download in the spring of 2018. The Prologue provides 16 user oscillator slots and 16 user effect slots, and users can use the Prologue Librarian software (also expected to be available for download in the spring of 2018) to load into their Prologue new oscillators and effect programs created by developers with the Prologue SDK (Software Development Kit).

Analog comp/booster:
The exclusive VU meter is available only on the Prologue-16, and indicates the newly developed master effect L.F. COMP. It's a low end booster/compressor using an analog circuit, delivering a solid sense of presence that cannot be obtained from a simple EQ. You'll particularly notice the difference in high-volume stage performances where maximum dynamics can be utilized.

Korg SoundLink MW1608 Hybrid Analogue & Digital Mixer
Cat: 762145 Rel: 29 Jul 20
 
Hybrid analogue & digital mixer
Notes: 16-channel version of Korg's excellent hybrid mixer, designed in collaboration with Greg Mackie and Trident designer Peter Watts. Eight mono channels and four stereo pairs, each with single-knob compressor and musical EQ.

Supplier notes:
A mixer should not only sound good. It should be very easy to use.

Korg has collaborated with the legendary mixer design team of Greg Mackie and Peter Watts to create hybrid/analog mixing consoles that make creative mixing easy. Both the 24- and 16-channel models give you instant analog control for live mixing with stunning sound quality and more musician-friendly features than the competition - paired with the power of high-quality digital where it counts.

Use a SoundLink and you discover all the typical Greg Mackie features and ideas that are unique to SoundLink; hear your first live mix and discover why Peter Watts helped design legendary Trident consoles and then hundreds of high-end studio processors and preamps. Besides designing mixers, Greg Mackie has been mixing on them for over 40 years.

When you listen to the "White Album", Rhianna's "Rated R" and "Loud", "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" and literally hundreds of other familiar albums, you're listening to the legendary Trident mixing console sound. Peter Watts had an important role in Trident technology; he brings the same rich, warm preamp, EQ and dynamics quality to the products he designs today. HiVolt mic preamps give you the most headroom of any comparably-priced analog or digital mixer (16.5V internal voltage, even on stereo channels where other mixers skimp). They sound warm and musical.

It is the only small mixer that has Mute Groups. They let you instantly call up different combinations of channels for various groups on stage, different songs, sound checks, a solo acoustic number, a drum solo or different parts of a church service (choir, praise band, pastor. You get four Group options, each easily programmable and recallable.

Some musicians want to hear more of their own instrument or voice in their in-ear or floor monitor, a process that is complicated to change on other mixers. SoundLink's Musician's Phone feature provides one-knob boost of the complete left/right mix into the musician's individual track. Instead of having to change main mix settings or take up a bus, you have dedicated knobs for two musician's "more me" monitor mixes.

Instead of a generic digital effects processor chip, SoundLink mixers use a high-quality proprietary Korg custom chip that builds on all of Korg's multi-decade expertise: twenty four ultra-realistic digital effects. For example, all six reverb effects include an alternate "WARM" version- a touch veteran Korg users will tell you is very useful. Parameters of all effects can be tweaked, saved and recalled, and activated by an optional footswitch. Plus, you get test tone generators for use with the built-in 24-band Spectrum Analyzer that's another SoundLink exclusive in a mixer in this price range.

Digital processing and effects are frustrating if they're buried in some long, scrolling menu inside a menu. For EQ and other control features, and a row of individual L/R, AUX 1 and Aux 2 assign buttons for both Equalization and Dynamics makes mixing easier. SoundLink's Limiter, Compressor, Noise Gate are both effective without being harsh or exaggerated. Each has tweakable, recallable parameters. Coupled with a 31-band Spectrum Analyzer, the super-practical 31-band/9-band ParaGraphic EQ solves acoustical problems other small mixers can't handle.

Korg SQ-1 Analog Step Sequencer
Cat: 561425 Rel: 02 Feb 15
 
2 x 8 step sequencer with a variety of sequencer modes and battery operation
Notes: When the classic MS-20 analog synthesizer appeared in 1978, it had a trusted partner in the SQ-10 step sequencer. Now, after thirty years, the MS-20 has been reborn as the MS-20 mini, and the SQ-10 has evolved into the more modern SQ-1.

The SQ-1 is a compact step sequencer with 2 x 8 steps. It's wealth of connection jacks allows it to be connected to the MS-20 and a variety of other synthesizers. Vintage analog synths or the latest compact synths can be controlled from this single unit. You can also switch between a variety of synthesizer modes and use the step buttons to create performances overflowing with spontaneity, just as when using a volca unit.

Liberate yourself from the numerically-bound parameter editing that's typical on a DAW; you'll enjoy truly musical inspiration as you train your ears and concentrate on what your fingertips are doing. Don't miss the experience of music that's driven by your instinct.

Rather than the commonly used V/Oct standard, the CV design of the MS-20 always used the Hz/V standard that provides excellent pitch stability limiting the step sequencers that are able to correctly control the MS-20. As a descendant of the SQ-10, the SQ-1 supports the Hz/V standard, enabling it to perfectly control the MS-20 or MS-20 mini. It goes without saying the V/Oct standard is also supported, and the voltage level of the CV output and polarity of the GATE output can be specified as appropriate for the device you've connected. This versatility will enable you to control a wide variety of other synthesizers as well.

As a connector, the SQ-1 provides two CV/GATE OUT channels, the standard MIDI OUT and USB MIDI, littleBits out (to connect to the littleBits synth kit by littleBits Electronics Inc.), plus the SYNC IN/OUT channel that allows you to connect to the volca series and monotribe. Compact and complete with all the functions you need, the SQ-1 is the ideal hardware sequencer.

The SQ-1 provides two channels (A and B) of 8-step sequencer that can operate consecutively, or be used in a variety of other modes. For example, you can run A and B following each other to function as a 16-step sequencer, ignore the order and make the steps play randomly, or use A and B to control different parameters as they run in parallel. From simple sequences to complex changes, you can choose from a variety of modes to suit your needs.

The 2 x 8 step buttons can be used in the usual way to turn notes on/off, but you can also use the MODE button to switch their function, opening up powerful possibilities such as letting you "perform" the sequence itself, as on a volca unit.

"Active Step" lets you skip steps mid-way through a sequence, and "Step Jump" lets you instantly play just the step that you press, producing irregular rhythms or effects that are reminiscent of short loops. "Slide" produces an effect in which steps are connected smoothly; using this to control a synth bass is an easy way for anyone to generate an acid sound.

Packed with carefully selected functionality, the SQ-1 features a compact and very sturdy sheet-metal body. Placed beside the MS-20 series, you'll notice a sense of solidity that gives the impression they were manufactured in the same era. The unit can operate on two AA batteries or on USB bus power.

Sequence step resolution is selectable as quarter notes, eighth notes, or 16th notes.

You can specify the way in which the step knobs control the pitch. The knob values can specify the pitch directly, or they can specify the closest note in a major, minor, or chromatic scale.

Korg SY 1D Sync Dancing Synchronized Dance Music Player
Cat: 624266 Rel: 11 Oct 16
 
Miniature music player for ballroom dance practice
Notes: Enjoy private dance lessons anytime - an ultra-miniature music player that you wear in your ear.

SyncDancing is an ultra-miniature music player for ballroom dance practice that you wear in your ear like an earphone. In addition to metronome functionality, it has 20 built-in standard ballroom dance songs, so you can practice at any time while listening your favourite dance songs. This one unit provides everything you need for improving your dancing skills, sharpening your sense of rhythm, and becoming familiar with dance songs. You can practice by yourself, or synchronize the tempo via infrared so that two people can each wear a unit and practice together.

Practice dancing while listening to the rhythm or song directly in your ear:

SyncDancing is a unique style of music player and metronome that you use by wearing it directly in your ear. Since the speaker unit fits directly in your ear, you can practice dancing with the correct rhythm while hearing the music directly in your ear. Because you can concentrate on the sound without being distracted by nearby sounds, this is ideal for personal practice at home as well as for practice in a large dance studio or hall. SyncDancing is extremely small and lightweight, so you can dance without any distraction.

The keys to improving your ballroom dance skills are to acquire steps and technique, nurture your sense of rhythm, and become able to express yourself by dancing to the music. With SyncDancing, you can experience rhythms and music anytime and anywhere for effective practicing.

Twenty standard ballroom dance songs are built-in:

A total of twenty standard songs for ballroom dances such as waltz, tango, rhumba, and cha-cha-cha are built-in, and you can play them back while switching between the metronome and the song (*). Each of the internal songs was created by a professional arranger who actually produces music CDs for ballroom dance. The tone generator section also takes advantage of KORG's many years of experience in developing synthesizer technology, packing a high-quality sound engine into the smallest possible size. Since these songs play back as SMF, you can freely change their tempo. With SyncDancing, you can enjoy serious dance practice with CD-quality songs.

Infrared tempo synchronization, ideal for practicing as a couple:

SyncDancing supports not only individual practice but also practicing dance as a couple. Simply click two SyncDancing units together and press the sync button to synchronize the tempo and timing via infrared (*1). Even while wearing the unit directly in your ear, both partners can practice while hearing exactly the same tempo.

The timing (delay) from the moment of synchronization until playback begins can be set in a range of 0--90 seconds (*2). This gives you flexibility to meet the needs of various situations. For example you can specify a shorter delay if you're synchronizing the units and then immediately starting a lesson, or use a longer delay if you need time to get into your position in a large hall.

Built-in voice count is useful for lessons:

SyncDancing's metronome sound (tone) provides not only the standard "beep beep beep" electronic tone but also a voice count of "one, two, three." You can practice with confidence while hearing the correct count.

A wide variety of beats and rhythms:

The tempo setting range is a generous 30--252 bpm, and you can choose from a variety of beats and rhythms when using the metronome. You can set the beat in the range of 0--9 beats, and choose the rhythm from quarter notes, duplets, triplets, triplets with the inner beat omitted, triplets with the third beat omitted, quadruplets, quadruplets with the middle beats omitted, and quadruplets with the third and fourth beats omitted. This covers your practicing needs for a broad range of songs.

Use the jog switch to set the tempo intuitively:

The SyncDancing features a jog switch on the side of the body, allowing you to easily change the settings without removing the unit from your ear. Using the jog switch you can select not just the tempo setting, but also the song or volume. This provides a compact yet highly intuitive method of operation.

Korg SY 1D Sync Dancing Synchronized Dance Music Player (B-STOCK)
Cat: 743533 Rel: 01 Jan 90
 
***B-STOCK: Box opened, product unused***
Notes: Enjoy private dance lessons anytime - an ultra-miniature music player that you wear in your ear.

SyncDancing is an ultra-miniature music player for ballroom dance practice that you wear in your ear like an earphone. In addition to metronome functionality, it has 20 built-in standard ballroom dance songs, so you can practice at any time while listening your favourite dance songs. This one unit provides everything you need for improving your dancing skills, sharpening your sense of rhythm, and becoming familiar with dance songs. You can practice by yourself, or synchronize the tempo via infrared so that two people can each wear a unit and practice together.

Practice dancing while listening to the rhythm or song directly in your ear:

SyncDancing is a unique style of music player and metronome that you use by wearing it directly in your ear. Since the speaker unit fits directly in your ear, you can practice dancing with the correct rhythm while hearing the music directly in your ear. Because you can concentrate on the sound without being distracted by nearby sounds, this is ideal for personal practice at home as well as for practice in a large dance studio or hall. SyncDancing is extremely small and lightweight, so you can dance without any distraction.

The keys to improving your ballroom dance skills are to acquire steps and technique, nurture your sense of rhythm, and become able to express yourself by dancing to the music. With SyncDancing, you can experience rhythms and music anytime and anywhere for effective practicing.

Twenty standard ballroom dance songs are built-in:

A total of twenty standard songs for ballroom dances such as waltz, tango, rhumba, and cha-cha-cha are built-in, and you can play them back while switching between the metronome and the song (*). Each of the internal songs was created by a professional arranger who actually produces music CDs for ballroom dance. The tone generator section also takes advantage of KORG's many years of experience in developing synthesizer technology, packing a high-quality sound engine into the smallest possible size. Since these songs play back as SMF, you can freely change their tempo. With SyncDancing, you can enjoy serious dance practice with CD-quality songs.

Infrared tempo synchronization, ideal for practicing as a couple:

SyncDancing supports not only individual practice but also practicing dance as a couple. Simply click two SyncDancing units together and press the sync button to synchronize the tempo and timing via infrared (*1). Even while wearing the unit directly in your ear, both partners can practice while hearing exactly the same tempo.

The timing (delay) from the moment of synchronization until playback begins can be set in a range of 0--90 seconds (*2). This gives you flexibility to meet the needs of various situations. For example you can specify a shorter delay if you're synchronizing the units and then immediately starting a lesson, or use a longer delay if you need time to get into your position in a large hall.

Built-in voice count is useful for lessons:

SyncDancing's metronome sound (tone) provides not only the standard "beep beep beep" electronic tone but also a voice count of "one, two, three." You can practice with confidence while hearing the correct count.

A wide variety of beats and rhythms:

The tempo setting range is a generous 30--252 bpm, and you can choose from a variety of beats and rhythms when using the metronome. You can set the beat in the range of 0--9 beats, and choose the rhythm from quarter notes, duplets, triplets, triplets with the inner beat omitted, triplets with the third beat omitted, quadruplets, quadruplets with the middle beats omitted, and quadruplets with the third and fourth beats omitted. This covers your practicing needs for a broad range of songs.

Use the jog switch to set the tempo intuitively:

The SyncDancing features a jog switch on the side of the body, allowing you to easily change the settings without removing the unit from your ear. Using the jog switch you can select not just the tempo setting, but also the song or volume. This provides a compact yet highly intuitive method of operation. The mode select / power button, sync / mute button, and an LCD display that shows the tempo and other information are located on the inside of the body.

Comfortably and securely fits a variety of ear:

The SyncDancing utilizes two distinctive mechanisms to ensure a stable fit in any ear, large or small. The first is an Ear Fitter that extends from below the speaker. Its angle can be finely adjusted by rotating the speaker itself, allowing to fit the various shapes of ear hole. The second is an Ear Clip that opens or closes to fasten on the earlobe.

Korg TinyPiano Digital Toy Piano (red)
Cat: 518666 Rel: 20 Sep 17
 
Quality digital toy piano with excellent pitch & accurate tone
Notes: First impressions stay with us. If it's an instrument, the sound of that instrument continues to reverberate in our hearts and minds even when we become adults.

Just because something is called a toy piano, doesn't mean it has to sound like a toy. If the instrument has correct pitch and accurate tone, a child who plays with the instrument will look forward to better instruments as they grow older.

The KORG tinyPIANO is a digital piano made by a musical instrument manufacturer renowned for professional pianos for the children who carry the future.

Accurate pitch and true tone:

KORG believes that the way to foster a true sense of value is to be in contact with true quality from the very beginning. A truly valuable present for our children must be of a quality that will satisfy the adult who chooses the gift. The tinyPIANO lets you play the deep, rich tones of a sampled grand piano with the stable pitch that you expect from a digital piano. With an emphasis on safety and durability, moving parts have been reduced to the minimum and the volume has also been adjusted to a modest level that will be appropriate for a child's ears.

Fashionable, cute, and serious:

The cute design is essentially a miniaturized upright piano, with a fallboard just like on a real piano, and a miniature 25-note keyboard made by KORG for ease of playing. The body makes extensive use of wood for a solid feel when touched, giving it a sense of quality and sophistication that elevates the instrument above the category of toy piano, thus making it ideally suit the decor of any room.

Twenty-five built-in sounds that let you learn while playing:

Good sound is not limited to grand piano tones. There are a total of 25 built-in sounds including sounds that you've heard in classic songs, such as electric piano, clavinet, organ and bell, as well as sounds that befit a miniature piano, such as music box and toy piano tones. You can learn the sounds of instruments while actually playing them, as if the tinyPIANO itself were a picture book of instruments.

Fifty built-in demo songs to enjoy even when you're not playing:

The tinyPIANO contains 50 automatically playing demo songs that cover a wide range of styles. In addition to being a great way to hear skilful performances, these songs can provide enjoyable background music for your room, like a music box. Each demo song is assigned to play using a tone that's appropriate for it, but you are free to specify a different tone to suit your taste or the desired atmosphere. Even when playing back the demo songs at night, you can turn down the volume and enjoy the background music without disturbing those around you.

Small, easily transportable, and powered by AA batteries:

Speakers are built into the compact body. Since the instrument is powered by six AA batteries, you can enjoy piano performances anywhere and anytime. Without needing to be set up in a specific location, you can move the tinyPIANO from the living room to the bedroom or even outside according to how you feel that day, and enjoy music in the style you like. This instrument is too good to let the children monopolize; it's a miniature electronic piano that adults will enjoy as well.

Korg TM60C Combo Tuner Metronome & Contact Mic (black)
Cat: 675884 Rel: 24 Jan 18
 
High precision tuner/metronome with contact microphone
Notes: This package consists of the TM-60, which combines tuner and metronome functionality, and the CM-200 Contact Microphone, which sends the vibrations from your instrument directly to the tuner. By using the tuner together with this contact mic, you can take advantage of quick and accurate tuning without any interference from outside sounds in the environment, and you can also utilize the TM-60's Sound Back function*. The CM-200 Contact Microphone is the perfect way to accurately pick up and convey your instrument's sound to the TM-60 and-held tuner with its wide, easy to read meter. The TM-60 can be placed on a nearby music stand, making it ideal for orchestral or brass band instruments.

TM-60 Combo Tuner Metronome:

The best-selling KORG TM series, which lets you use a tuner and metronome simultaneously, has been revamped. The TM-60 is the newest model and features a larger display that can show the tuner and metronome simultaneously. The battery life has also been dramatically improved. With the all-new TM-60, you'll be able to enjoy pitch training and rhythm training without having to switch functions or be concerned with battery life.

Tuning and rhythm training are indispensable for brass band or orchestral practice. In addition to letting you use the tuner and metronome simultaneously, the TM-60 features a display that's approximately 1.3 times larger than the previous model (the TM-50), allowing easy viewing even when the unit is placed on your music stand, and also allowing the tuner and metronome functions to both be viewed simultaneously.

No longer will you have to switch between functions; you'll be able to use practicing techniques that are idiomatic to orchestral instruments, such as keeping a consistent pitch over the course of a long note while varying the tone to add vibrato in time with the tempo, or checking the pitch of chords while using the metronome.

The enlarged display is backlit. You can adjust the brightness in two levels, soft or auto, ensuring stress-free tuning even when you're on a dimly lit stage or in an orchestra pit.
The circuitry has been redesigned to achieve a battery life of 130 hours, approximately double that of the previous TM-50 model (tuner in use, backlight off). There's no need to worry about the remaining battery life even during extended practices or performances.

CM-200 Contact Microphone:

The CM-200 is a contact microphone that can be attached to the bell of a brass instrument, the bridge of a violin, or even to a guitar or ukulele. The microphone uses a piezo element to directly capture the vibrations and send them to your tuner. The CM-200 is an indispensable item in situations where the mic built into your tuner might have difficulty detecting the sound of your instrument, such as when you're practicing with an entire brass band.

Compared to its predecessor, the CM-200 features a fresh appearance with a sharper design.

The functionality of the microphone has also been improved. The cable now transmits sound more efficiently, and is more flexible. The connection between the mic and cable has been made more durable, reducing the possibility of breakage. The new clip opens up 7 mm wider than the previous model, providing more space to attach to your instrument. The rubber inside the clip has been redesigned to provide a better fit so that it can be securely attached.

Korg Volca Drum Digital Percussion Synthesiser
Korg Volca Drum Digital Percussion Synthesiser (drum machine/percussion synthesiser)
Cat: 715951 Rel: 21 Mar 19
 
Drum machine with 16-step sequencer, 6 dual-layer drum parts, MIDI input & sync I/O
Notes: Killer value as usual from Korg's consistently reliable Volca range. Here the focus is on digital drum synthesis, offering a range of conventional percussion instruments plus creative options including basic synth sounds.

Supplier's notes:
Welcome to an infinitely expanding world of sound-design. Joining volca kick and beats as the third, and most unique, drum synth in the volca lineup. The volca series is all about unique sound. Whether it's analogue, PCM, or FM, the volca series puts unique sounds into an accessible platform. And now, the series is joined by a new rhythm machine that brings yet another sonic character. It's the volca drum digital percussion synthesizer. Based on a simple trigger waveform, wave folder and overdrive are used to add overtones and distortion, and then a waveguide resonator effect brings the sound to life. The six-part DSP synth engine was designed with a completely different philosophy than conventional drum machines, and generates a wide range of unexpectedly different sounds. And of course, you can play those sounds from the volca-style sequencer.

Adding these distinctive sounds to your rhythms will revolutionarily transform your performances and productions.

Digital percussion synth with a 6-part x 2-layer structure:

The term "digital" typically brings to mind sounds that are based on PCM-sampled bass drum, snare drum, or cymbal, but the volca drum creates its drum sounds by DSP-powered analogue modelling. Oscillator waveforms such as sine wave, sawtooth wave, and noise are provided. By applying various changes to these waveforms, you can create a wide variety of percussion sounds that range from realistic to idiosyncratic, and are not limited only to drums.

The six parts each have two layers, and do not impose any rules or restrictions such as specifying which parts must be used for the bass drum or for the cymbal; all parts have the same specifications. You can freely assign your new sounds to these six parts without being limited by the conventions of a drum set. A kit consists of the six parts that you've assigned plus the waveguide resonator effect settings, and 16 such kits can be stored in memory (the factory settings contain 10 preload kits).

Distinctive sound from a newly developed DSP engine:

Each part consists of two layers. For each layer, users choose one of five types of oscillator waveform including sine wave, sawtooth wave, and HPF noise, and also choose from three types of pitch modulator and amp EG, each optimized for drum sounds. Layer parameters can be edited either individually or simultaneously, and users can also use the two layers to produce the same sound for additional thickness.

Waveguide resonator adds rich resonances:

The effect section features a waveguide resonator that's based on physical modelling, and which adds sympathetic resonances to the sound. You can choose from two types of waveguide: "tube" which adds the resonance of a cylindrical object such as a drum body or a long pipe, or "strings" which adds the metallic resonance of a string. The three knobs located in the centre of the panel let you specify the DECAY (amount of attenuation), BODY (sonic character), and TUNE (pitch). Setting TUNE to a lower value will produce a delay-like behaviour. You can take advantage of these knobs not only for sound design but also in your live performances.

16-step sequencer with a wide range of parameter automation:

The 16-step sequencer is excellent for improvisation. You can easily create patterns using the 16 buttons, each corresponding to one of the 16 steps. In addition to step recording, the sequencer also supports realtime recording in which you can construct a pattern while looping the playback. The pattern chain function lets you play multiple sequence patterns successively, so you can successively play back desired patterns of consecutive numbers. Up to 16 sequences can be connected to construct patterns with 256 steps.
