KDM-2 Digital Metronome from Korg
The KDM-2 advances Korg´s most popular metronome.
The cylindrical speaker has been enhanced with an improved resonator structure to ensure that it´s easily heard. With the KDM-2 you have a choice of 3 different PCM sounds (cowbell/agogo/clave) for the beat, so you can choose the sound that compliments the instrument you´re playing. The volume can also be adjusted to the most appropriate level. Since there´s a PHONE jack, you can connect a mini-plug (1/8") earphone for private practice.
The START/STOP switch located on the top panel blinks in two colors - red and green - for a visual indication of the tempo. It´s a great feature if you want to practice with a silent metronome.
From basic beats to variations like son clave and rumba clave, the KDM-2 contains a total of 19 beat patterns. You can set the tempo in any of three ways. Full Step mode that lets you adjust the tempo over a range of 30 through 252 in steps of one. Pendulum Step mode lets you set the tempo using the preset tempo settings, as on a mechanical metronome. And Tap Tempo lets you set the tempo by pressing the TAP switch at the desired interval.
