  • A few years ago, Korg released a nifty practice tool called the TM-50 that combined tuner and metronome in one unit, allowing musicians to keep time and stay in tune. Now the company has added the ability to analyze and improve tone and technique with the release of the TM-50TR.
  • Over the last few years, Korg's Pitchblack pedal tuner has built up a solid reputation for durability and accuracy. With a footprint not much bigger than an original iPhone, it's not exactly huge either. But with pedalboard space often at a premium, Korg has introduced the Pitchblack mini.
