Cherub's innovative and revolutionary design
makes this MetroTuner's (metronome and tuner combo) look the only thing that is traditional.
Cherub continues to outpace its
competitions by designing this world's most sophisticated metronome and tuner combo
device. This MetroTuner is packed with revolutionary features not found in any other
device on the market. It is one of the several Cherub models that
contains the most sophisticated tempo and rhythm management system in the world.
Built to look like a classic metronome, this
device is far from being traditional. It combines the functions of
metronome and chromatic tuner into one. The metronome function contains
volume control, beat simulation with Cherub's revolutionary technology for visual sensing of tempo,
voice beat counting, measure counting, beat selection, measure setting,
ritardando, and rhythm
selection. The chromatic tuner function can tune all 12 notes between A1
Metronome Features - Like all Cherub metronomes, this 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 7 beat (time signature) options. This helps to highlight strong beats in the music.
For example, if there are 2 beats in a measure, the first beat will be strong
while the second will be weak.
It has 14 different rhythms including duplet,
triplet, quadruplet. It has another 6 more rhythms sounded by voice.
settings, the rhythm settings, combine with the voice rhythm settings creates
the most powerful tool that can fulfill any rhythmic requirement
you may have. Perfect for helping students to learn sophisticated rhythm
The voice rhythm feature on the metronome is
another innovation for the market. The metronome voices the beats based on
the time-signature. For example, when the time-signature is 3/4 and the
voice rhythm is set to 1/4 note, the metronome will voice "One, Two, Three,
One Two, Three...". If the voice rhythm is set to 2 1/8 notes, the
metronome will voice "One And, Two And, Three And, One And, Two And, Three
And...". This creates a tremendous help for students who are
learning rhythm and counting.
Unlike most of Cherub metronomes, this metronome
takes rhythm training to the next level. This metronome allows you to set
the number of bars (measures) you would like the metronome to beat: from 2 to
200 bars. You
can also set the number of pre-beats. For example, for 3/4 time-signature,
the pre-beat can be set to 3, 2, or 1 weak beats. Metronome will then play
the number of pre-beats in weak tone before the first strong beat that
signalizes the beginning of the music. Additionally, you can also set the
ending of the last bar. For example, with 3/4 time-signature, the last bar
can end with 3, 2, or 1 beats. Furthermore, you can also set the ending to
have ritardando which will slow down the tempo at the last bar.
The metronome also features Cherub's
revolutionary visualization for beat simulation. Unlike a traditional
metronome where the pendulum swings side to side, Cherub's new technology
simulates the ups and downs of the taping motion of a hand while counting beats. This is done
through a bank of LEDs. This metronome contains a large bank of LEDs
making the beat motion very visible. Additionally, it also simulates a strong beat
with a bigger motion, a medium beat with a lesser motion, and a weak beat with the least amount of motion.
The metronome also features measure
visualization. It has a counter to indicate how many measures have elapsed
based on the time signature.
The metronome also comes with volume control.
It produce the loudest sound for metronomes on the market. The volume control allows the metronome to be used even with loud instruments.
The metronome also comes with an output jack for earphone
which will help deliver the sound into your ears without the
interference of background noise. This metronome can also be used with a DC power supply
so you don't have to rely on battery.
Tuner Features - As with all Cherub tuners, this model offers supremely accurate
tuning and fast response time. This tuner combines the best of the 3 technological worlds of
digital VU meter, LCD and LED. Digital VU meter style offers the most accurate response to tuning, perfect for precise tuning. LED
tuning guides offers the easiest visual tuning indication. And LCD offers
the best readout of tuner operation.
This chromatic tuner can tune all 12 notes.
The # and b mode of the tuner allows the half
notes to be displayed all in # or in b. This is used as a preference by
tuner features a very easy to read digital display and easy to use button
The display registers the note name and mode automatically.
The device has a built-in mic but also comes with
a precision pickup for improved acoustic tuning. For string instruments (violin, viola,
cello, and bass), the pickup can be clipped onto the bridge or any part of the
instrument to pick up the sound of the instrument for tuning.
For band instruments, the pickup can also be clipped onto any part of the instrument to pick up sound.
For guitars, the contact microphone can be clipped onto the scroll or any part
of the instrument.
A pickup is better in transmitting sound into the tuner than a built-in mic that always comes with a tuner.
This is because a mic is more likely to pick up background noise that causes interference with the sound from the instrument.
This pickup comes with proper cushion so it will not damage the finish on the
instrument. The clip has a 1-1/2" width range. This allows the
pickup to clip onto any part of the instrument that is as thick as 1-1/2".
This model is
very well built to resist damage from accidental drops.
