This is one of Seiko newest innovations that
shows Seiko understands what consumer wants. From its cool design and
color to its array of features, Seiko continues to outpace its
competition. This metronome is compact, has volume control, pendulum
simulation, beat setting, tone generation, pitch shift, and tap in
functionality. Furthermore, it has a slit for using the metronome on the
music stand and a strap hole.
The metronome, even though pocket size, has an
amazing speaker. It produce the loudest sound for metronomes in its
class. The volume control allows the metronome to be used even with loud instruments. The
sophisticated visual/audio combination features authentic chimes and claves
sound for strong and weak beats.
The metronome comes with a bank of 5 LEDs that
simulates pendulum motion found in a traditional metronome. The LEDs have successive lighting capability
that produces a "light trail" effect making the pendulum motion more
realistic. This greatly enhances the visual sensing of tempo. This
feature is great for students who are just
learning how to count.
The metronome features one of the widest range of
beat and rhythm settings on the market. The beat and rhythm patterns are
highlighted by the
chime and clave sounds. It has 0-7 beats. This helps to highlight strong beats in the music.
It has 6 different rhythms including duplet,
triplet, quadruplet, duplet with rest, triplet with rest, and quadruplet with
rests. The beat
settings combines with the rhythm settings will fulfill any rhythm requirement
you may have. Perfect for helping students to learn sophisticated rhythm
The tap in feature of the metronome helps you
determine the tempo of any thing you want to measure. You can use the 'tap
in' button to tap the tempo, the metronome will automatically determine the
tempo for you. You can then choose what rhythm to use. No more guess
work on how fast to set the metronome.
The metronome also comes with a very wide pitch shift
function from 410-450 Hz. Additionally, it can generate 12 tones for
reference: C4 and B4. Perfect for instrument tuning. The
metronome also comes with a earphone jack that allows you to use the metronome
with an earphone and delivers the tempo directly into your ear.
The metronome has an amazingly useful features
that no other metronome has on the market. It has a narrow slit on the
back of the metronome that allows the metronome to be 'hooked' onto the music
stand securely. This is very useful when playing with a stand.
Because other than the piano, where you can place a metronome on the instrument,
it is difficult to find some place to put the metronome when practicing any
instrument. This feature solves that problem. The metronome also
comes with a strap hole, like the ones on cameras. You can attach a strap
to the metronome and carry it or hang it.
As with all Seiko metronomes, this model is also
very well built to resist damage from accidental drops.
