It is equipped with a large number of high-quality rhythm patterns that exploit Korg’s advanced sound engineering technology, plus EQ, reverb, tuner, audio recording and playback, as well as overdub functions. An adjustable stand allows it to be tilted upward for better sound dispersion. It is powered by either the included adapter or six D batteries that allow 20 hours of continuous operation.
Korg’s Pitchblack mini (PBmini) tuner pedal is designed to conserve precious pedal board space, but still offer precise tuning and an easy-to-read display. Though PBmini has the footprint of a credit card, its large, seven-segment, color LED delivers excellent visibility, even on a dark stage. Users can choose from three modes—regular, strobe, or half-strobe mode. Strobe mode allows visualization of the direction and speed of meter movement, plus ultra high precision tuning with +/- 0.1 cent accuracy. Stabilizers on the underside of PBmini help it to stay put.

Beyond nostalgia, the mini is now priced so competitively that we expect it to become the instrument of choice for newcomers to the world of analog synths,” says James Sajeva, brand manager for Korg products.
