Just what is “good sound”? Beautiful sound, pleasant sound, sound that resonates in the listener’s heart. Perceptions of “good sound” differ between people, but could there be some commonalities? Through cooperative research with Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona, Spain, under the direction of Professor Xavier Serra, KORG has arrived at a technology “Artistry” (*1) for evaluating “good sound” based on five elements.
1: Pitch Stability
2: Dynamic Stability
3: Timbre Stability
4: Timbre Richness
5: Attack Clarity
Simultaneously with the tuner display, a radar chart shows the results of analyzing these five elements in real time, and scores them on a scale of 100 points. While tuning, you can see at a glance what aspects of your tone are lacking. You can also listen to a model tone and hear how it differs from your own sound. This is highly recommended for beginners who have just started a musical instrument, as well as for intermediate players who want to advance to the next level.
