View Full Description
High precision and advanced functionality and sleek style make this new guitar/bass pedal tuner from Korg our most advanced yet. The pitchblack is the same size as a compact effect unit, and features a tough aluminium die cast body that will endure hard use on the road or in the studio. While small in size, it boasts a large; easy to read LED meter with a light-emitting surface for excellent visibility in any setting from daylight, to stage light to no light as well as an extremely smooth eleven-segment LED meter that allows accurate visual tuning from any angle. With a red LED that indicates the tuner's on/off status, a large note name display, and a tuning guide that indicates whether your instrument is sharp or flat, you'll always be able to tune quickly and accurately in any situation. The pitchblack provides a tuning range of E0 (20.60 Hz) to C8 (4,186 Hz), and adjustable calibration between 436--445 Hz.
Four Display Modes:
The pitchblack s LED meter can be switched between four display modes including: Meter, Full Strobe, Half Strobe, and Mirror.
Similar to using a needle meter, tune your instrument so that the green LED in the centre of the LED display lights and both tuning guide LED s are lit. The tuning LED s will be to the right of centre if your instrument is sharp, and to the left of the centre if your instrument is flat.
Full Strobe Mode
Tune your instrument so that the LED meters stop streaming and both tuning guide LED s are lit. The LED meters will stream from left to right if your instrument is sharp and from right to left if your instrument is flat.
Half Strobe Mode
Tune your instrument so that the LED meters stop streaming and only the green LED in the centre is lit and both tuning guide LED s are lit. The LED meters will stream to the right of centre if your instrument is sharp, and to the left of centre if your instrument is flat. When the pitch is correct, only the centre LED will be lit.
Tune your instrument so that the two LEDs on the left and right sides of the centre LED meet in the middle and both tuning guide LED s are lit. The pitch lit LEDs will spread farther apart the more your instrument is out of tune. The left tuning guide will light if your instrument is flat, and the right tuning guide will light if your instrument is sharp.
True Bypass Output
The pitchblack mutes the input signal for silent tuning, and when you’re not tuning the input is passed directly to the output jack without being affected by any circuitry (True Bypass). So even if you connect the pitchblack between several of your favourite pedals, the signal will pass without going through the internal buffer amp, ensuring that the sounds you've created using your effects will not be coloured in any way. The pitchblack is designed to coexist transparently with other effect pedals.
A perfect fit in your pedal board plus the DC output powers other pedals.
The pitchblack is designed to fit conveniently into your pedal board system. It provides a DC OUT jack that can supply power to other effect pedals when the optional AC adaptor is used. By connecting optional DC cables, you can supply up to 200 mA of power to multiple effect pedals, simplifying the power connections in your pedal board.
