Korg Pitchblack X Chromatic Pedal Tuner

Introducing the new Pitchblack X – the evolution of Korg’s pedal tuners. Its larger and brighter displays with double-the-meter LEDs improve visibility with more accurate tuning. The new Ultra Buffer maintains signal strength over long cable runs or as part of a large pedalboard.

Switch Between True Bypass Or The Newly-Developed Ultra Buffer.

The majority of electric guitars use passive pickups with a high impedance output. When you are using a cable there is a loss of tone, usually high frequencies, after about 6 m (around 18 feet) and this problem gets worse the longer your cable. A buffer boosts the signal over long cables to avoid loss of tone, keeping it clean and clear – even when your pedal is off.

This Is Where ULTRA BUFFER Comes In

The ULTRA BUFFER enhances the sound quality in bypass mode so that you can still maintain audio quality even when using a long cable to connect to the tuner, or when inserting the tuner into a complex effects board. On the Pitchblack X, you can switch between true bypass and the ULTRA BUFFER, according to your tastes and performance environment.

Meter LED Also Offers Bright Mode Settings For High Visibility.

Besides the enlarged display, more meter LEDs have been added for superior visibility. The bright mode (brightness) can be set at one of two levels, so that you can be sure to see the tuner display even better in situations where visibility is difficult, such as brightly lit stages and bright outdoor environments.

Ultra-High Tuning Accuracy Down To ±0.1 Cents.

The Pitchblack X offers highly precise and accurate tuning within a precision of ±0.1 cents when in Strobe mode. This makes it ideal for situations where the tuning must be absolutely right whether performing or recording.

Pitchblack X Four-Meter Display Modes.

Aside from the typical “Regular” mode, you can use “Strobe” and “Half Strobe” modes. They indicate changes in pitch by the direction and speed that the meter is flowing. Therefore, you can distinguish even the finest differences in pitch. Use “Mirror” mode to see two LEDs on the left and right crossing together towards the centre as you tune.

Built-In “Just-Right Tuning” Display.

The Pitchblack X features a new “just-right tuning” display function. It makes the triangular LEDs on both sides blink when the tuning is correct, helping tuning be a stress-free experience.

Sturdy Housing; Also Works On Battery Power

The Pitchblack X comes in a robust aluminium case with a strong scratch-resistant coating. It works on 9 V batteries, which is perfect for players who don’t carry around an effects board. Also, there is an optional AC adaptor if required.

Pitchblack X Highlights:

  • Allows switching between true bypass and the newly-developed ULTRA BUFFER
  • Meter LED also offers bright mode settings for high visibility
  • Ultra-high tuning accuracy down to ±0.1 cents
