A great lesson and practice tool, the TM-40 offers both tuner and metronome functions that can be used simultaneously or independently. A large LCD-type needle delivers both the accuracy of an LCD and excellent visibility of a needle indicator. The metronome tuner also has LED indicators that show pitch deviation or blink to indicate the tempo, making the TM-40 a great visual tool.
In addition to the visual tuning guide provided by the meter, you can use the TM-40's built-in speaker to produce a tuning reference pitch (Sound Out). This is convenient for tuning by ear and is useful for ear training. By pressing the Sound switch, you can select the reference pitch from A5 to B4 (commonly used as the tuning standard for wind instruments). Moreover, by holding down the Sound switch, you can select a mode in which you step through chromatic pitches from C4 to C5 (one octave).
Thirteen rhythm variations for practicing a wide range of styles. The TM-40 contains thirteen types of rhythms that cover 0-7 beats per measure as well as doublets, triplets, triplets with center beats omitted, quadruplets, and quadruplets with center beats omitted.* Tempo is easily adjustable in a range of 40 - 208 beats per minute (bpm). Sophisticated rhythms, such as triplets/quadruplets with center beats omitted, give you the flexibility to cover a wide range of styles from classical to rock and jazz. Since the volume is adjustable, the TM-40 can meet the needs of any situation from private practice in a small room to sessions in a large studio.
