Korg Desktop Metronome
Hear and SEE whatever rhythm you need, quickly and easily!
Unique "Conducting Motion" display and extra large LCD for easy visualization of the
Taking advantage of the extra large LCD, the LMA-120 provides a unique Korg tempo display method --- a newly developed
"Conducting Motion" display in which three bars move in a way similar to a conductor's baton. This is a revolutionary new method of indicating the tempo, in which the motion lets you feel the tempo
in a natural, musical way. Normally, you keep tempo by listening to the metronome, but the Korg LMA-120 provides a large Conducting Motion Display to visually show the tempo as
Alternatively, you can choose a L/R movement display in which the meter moves left and right like a conventional
metronome, or you can use the L/R movement simultaneously with the Conducting Motion display, giving you three display modes to choose from.
Choose from ten types of beats, six types of rhythms, and three types of tempo step
By combining ten types of beats (0-9) and six types of rhythms (quarter notes, eighth notes, triplets, triplets with
the middle note omitted, quadruplets, and quadruplets with the middle notes omitted), you can set up rhythms suitable for practicing a wide range of songs and styles. In addition, the tempo can be
specified in one of three ways. You can use "Full Step" mode to adjust the tempo in a range of 30 to 252 (in increments of 1 BPM), "Pendulum Step" mode to set the tempo to the same values available
on a mechanical metronome, or repeatedly press the TAP switch in time with the desired tempo.
The built-in Timer/Stopwatch function lets you measure extended intervals as long as 99 minutes, a convenient feature
for your practice sessions.
Convenient tuning functions
Sound Out mode generates a reference tone to which you can tune your instrument. The LMA-120 metronome can produce a
reference tone in a one-octave range of C4--C5. The A4 reference frequency (calibration) can also be adjusted in a broad range from 410 Hz to 480 Hz.
Designed for superb operability and low power consumption
The flip top design allows for an extra large display as well as a spacious opening for the internal speaker, ensuring
clarity and ample volume. The function select keys are positioned for easy use, allowing quick access to the desired function. A 1/8" headphone jack is also provided, so you can connect a set of
mini-plug headphones for silent practice.
The flip top design also allows you to close the unit, protecting the LCD and making the unit compact for easy
transportation. Closing the lid also shuts off the power automatically to preserve battery life.
Memory backup function
When it is powered-off, the Korg LMA-120's memory backup function preserves the tempo, beat, calibration, and
reference pitch settings you specified. These settings are remembered even when you replace the batteries.
