Korg built the very first rack-mountable tuners and have now released the DTR-2000 to supersede their popular TR-1000. Aimed at professional musicians, this rack tuner has all the essential features needed for pro guitar performance and studio work.
Rack-mountable tuner with superb visibility
The DTR-2000 is re-designed for even better visibility from a distance when you're on stage. The LED tuning indicator moves as smoothly as a needle. A neat trick is that the brightness increases as you approach the correct pitch, and a LED lights in the center when you reach the exact tuning, for quick, easy and accurate confirmation that you're in tune. When GUITAR/BASS modes are used a large sixteen-segment display shows the string note.
In addition to the conventional indication in cents , the DTR-2000 also displays the frequency hertz (or cycles per second) giving twice the sensitivity of the cent display, albeit in units that are unfamiliar to most guitarists. An optional "strobe" display that indicates the difference between the input sound and the correct pitch by the left/right movement of a light - a more accurate way of tuning once you get used to the concept. You can select either "cent" or "strobe" display for tuning and the DTR-2000 also provides a white LED lamp that points downward, illuminating any equipment placed below the DTR-2000 in a rack.
Tuning modes that support a wide range of playing styles.
The DTR-2000 provides a Chromatic mode in which the note name is detected automatically, as well as Guitar (with support for 6-string and 7-string guitars), Bass, and Open Tuning modes in which you specify the note name that will be detected. Open tunings frequently used for slide guitar or finger picking styles are supported, including open D/E/G/A, as well as the popular DADGAD tuning. The DTR-2000 also supports the flatted tunings used to give the sound greater depth. The seven-semitone flatted tuning mode provides for dropped tunings all the way from one semitone down to a maximum of seven semitones below standard pitch - two semitones lower than the five-semitone flatted tuning supported by Korg's previous guitar tuner.
Sound Out mode (DTR-2000 only)
In addition to visual tuning using the meter, the DTR-2000 provides a Sound Out mode that allows you to tune while hearing a reference pitch in the range of C2-C5. This reference pitch can be output from your amp, allowing all band members to check their tuning as well.
Input and output jacks
The DTR-2000 provides INPUT 1 and 2 jacks that allow two devices to be connected for tuning. In addition to a Mute jack that is convenient for on-stage tuning, a latch-type (alternating) foot switch can be connected to conveniently switch muting on/off. INPUT1* and MUTE* jacks are also provided on the front panel for easy access. A mic is also included in the front panel, allowing acoustic guitars to be tuned. The rear panel provides INPUT1*, INPUT2, SOUND OUT, OUTPUT, and MUTE* jacks.
The Calibration function supports a variety of standard pitches, and can be adjusted in 1 Hz steps over a range of 438-445 Hz. The Auto Reference Calibration function detects the pitch of an instrument and sets that pitch as the reference pitch. (Accommodates a range of 428 Hz-452 Hz.)
