The new KORG TM70T combines a tuner and metronome into a single unit and both functions can be used simultaneously. It is the definitive tuner/metronome combo that incorporates the best of Korg's technology.
The TM-70 is one size smaller than its predecessor, the TM-60, but has a larger display showing note names and scales. Additionally, the increased resolution of the LCD makes it easier to see from various angles, supporting stress-free and highly accurate tuning.
It's small enough to fit in a pocket, but the TM70 features a new transpose function (F, Bb, Eb), making it the ideal partner for all musicians. The sound quality of the metronome and sound out has also been enhanced so that it is easy to hear even in noisy environments.
The quality, speed, and accuracy of the tuning, which is essential to every performance, have also been enhanced.
- A wide detection range of C1–C8 supports a broad range of instruments.
- LCD needle meter with excellent sensitivity and visibility.
- Newly equipped with a transpose function that allows switching between F, B♭ , and E♭ in addition to chromatic.
- Improved display for better visibility, while reducing the size of the TM-70.
- Improved Metronome, sound out, and sound back audio for even clearer sound.
- Calibration is adjustable to match various concert pitches.
- Marks are provided to indicate pure major and minor third intervals.
- Sound Out mode and Sound Back mode are great ways to train your ear.

- Convenient memory backup function and auto power-off function.
- A foldable stand allows the unit to stand on its own.
- Universal design with icons for each function.
- Black and white color variations.
- Made in Japan for the highest quality control.
- The optional CM-400 contact mic allows even higher tuning precision.
The LCD needle meter, which uses Korg's proprietary technology to detect pitch without time lag accurately, also allows you to check the "shaking" that tends to occur with long tones on wind instruments, helping you to develop a stable, unshakeable pronunciation.
The transpose function is useful for transposed instruments where the actual note played differs from the note name written in the score. In addition to the usual in C, it is now possible to switch between F, B♭, and E♭. This makes it possible for even beginners to play correctly while looking at the score.
In an ensemble such as a brass band or orchestra, harmonies of third intervals are easily perceived as out of tune and can be made to sound better by slightly adjusting the pitch to a pure major or minor third. The TM-70T’s meter scale provides marks that indicate pure major and minor thirds, and simply by tuning so that the needle coincides with these marks* allows you to play in beautiful harmony with an ensemble. This is convenient not only for orchestral instruments but also for vocal music or a cappella practice.
In addition to a meter for visual tuning, the TM-70T provides a "sound out" mode that lets you tune using your ear while listening to a reference tone from the internal speaker or a set of connected headphones. The reference tone can be selected from the three-octave range of C3 (130.81 Hz) to C6 (1046.50 Hz), supporting not only wind instruments but also a variety of other instruments.
Sound Back mode generates the reference tone that’s closest to the pitch that you’re playing, while simultaneously indicating your input pitch on the meter. Since this allows you to check the pitch with both eye and ear, it lets you tune more precisely, and it’s also ideal for ear training. Refining your ear is a particularly helpful practice method for the beginner.
You can set the tempo using three different methods: "pendulum step" lets you increase or decrease the tempo value in the same way as the settings on a standard pendulum-type metronome, "full step" lets you specify the tempo in single-step increments in the range of 30–252, and "tap tempo" lets you specify the desired tempo by pressing the switch in time with the song you’re playing.
There are 15 different built-in rhythms* including time signatures from 0 through 9 as well as duplets, triplets, triplets with the middle note omitted, quadruplets, and quadruplets with the middle notes omitted, and the tempo can be freely specified in the range of 30–252 beats per minute. Sophisticated rhythms such as triplets or quadruplets with the middle notes omitted are used in a wide range of styles from classical to rock and jazz.
