Korg has introduced the MA-1 Solo Metronome, a device capable of audible beat keeping, rhythm training and tuning, via a chromatic pitch source.
Adjustable from 30 to 252 beats per minute, the MA-1 features a swinging metronome style needle display with on-screen triangles to inform which beat you’re on or how far into a pattern you are. Tempo can be dialed in or adjusted on the fly with the Tap Tempo button.
The pocket-sized metronome is available in two color schemes – blue and black or black and red, and has an earphone jack with adjustable volume for quiet practicing. The Korg MA-1 is available this month with a street price of $29.99.
