The Korg Pitchblack Advance Pedal Tuner is next instalment in Korg’s Pitchblack series, offering everything the previous models had with enhanced capabilities. The pedal features a sleek, slanted design with a large, easy to read LED screen, and features four different meter display modes so you can use the one best suited to your playing style. True bypass switching, special circuitry and software provide an incredibly noiseless operation, while its enhanced efficacy and long life design provides an extremely long battery life. With the ability to also power other pedals from the tuner, the Pitchblack Advance is the ultimate tuner pedal Korg has to offer for guitarists.
The Pitchblack features four different meter display modes to choose from, with regular, strobe, half-strobe, and mirror modes. While regular offers the standard tuning experience, strobe and half strobe provide a direction and speed meter movement for easy visualisation. Also when using stobe mode, the pedal allows ultra-high-precision tuning with ±0.1 cent accuracy. In mirror mode, two LED’s move from left and right towards the centre as you tune.
The Korg tuner 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. This means that no matter where in your chain you place the Pitchblack, the signal will pass straight though without going through the internal buffer amp, ensuring that the sounds you've created using your effects will not be coloured in any way.
If a separately sold AC adaptor is used, the DC OUT jack can supply power to another effect unit. Since a dedicated power supply circuit is provided for DC OUT, it can provide stable and noiseless 9V 200 mA power.
Providing a stable environment for players, the Pitchblack Advance features a special circuit to suppress any unwanted noise that may occur from interference between pedals using the same power supply. This results in completely eliminating the unwanted noise and providing a quite operation.
With eight years of experimentation with the Pitchblack series, the Advanced tuner has brought its high efficiency and long life design to a higher pinnacle. Achieving ultra-long-life operation, the pedal can last approximately 30 hours on zinc-carbon batteries and approximately 60 hours on alkaline batteries.
