The DTR-2000 is a rack mount tuner that has been redesigned for even clearer visibility from a distance when you're on stage. The LED tuning indicator moves as smoothly as a needle. The brightness increases as you approach the correct pitch, and a blue LED will light in the center when you reach the exact tuning, for unmistakable confirmation. There's a large sixteen-segment note display, and the DTR-2000 features a string indicator in addition to the note display when GUITAR/BASS modes are used.
In addition to the conventional indication in "cent" units, the Korg DTR-2000 also displays the detected pitch in "hertz", allowing twice the sensitivity of the "cent" display for even more precise tuning. You can also use a "strobe" display that indicates the difference between the input sound and the correct pitch by the left/right movement of a light. You can select either "cent" or "strobe" display for tuning. 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 in this rack tuner, including open D/E/G/A, as well as the popular DADGAD tuning. The Korg 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- a worldwide first! Two semitones lower than the five-semitone flatted tuning supported by Korg's previous guitar tuner.
Sound Out mode
In addition to visual tuning using the meter, this rack tuner 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 microphone is also included in the front panel, allowing acoustic guitars to be tuned. The rear panel of this rack tuner 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)
