Since we developed the world's first meter-type tuner in 1975, the accuracy of Korg tuners has made them the choice of artists in all styles of music. With its wide range extending from A0 to C8, the OT-120 lets you quickly tune any type of brass band or orchestral instrument – wind, string or keyboard. The OT-120 also provides a wide range of calibration to support concert pitches in a range of A4=349-499 Hz (1 Hz steps).
So that you can conveniently tune any wind instrument, twelve types of transposing keys are provided including both sharps and flats. The Multi Temperament function provides eight presets that cover the most popular historical temperaments often used with period instruments. These are also ideal for checking unique temperaments used in classical music.
The OT-120 uses a high-precision needle-type meter to accurately indicate any pitch discrepancy. The speed at which the needle responds to the input can be changed over a range of three steps; you can choose rapid or slow needle movement to match your tuning preference.
You can also choose from two tuning modes; Auto mode, which automatically detects the pitch of a single note you play on the input instrument, or Manual mode, which lets you specify the desired note name. In Manual mode the needle movement is shown in a range of ±500 cents, letting you view the tuning discrepancy over a wide range. In addition to the excellent visibility unique to a needle-type meter, the LEDs located below the meter also indicate pitch deviation or a perfect match, making precise tuning easy even in dim locations.
