The PT-7 starts with a high-speed chromatic tuner, adjustable to 7 alternate scales, with a display ideal for students to practice finding their pitch on wind and string instruments. The metronome plays from the speaker or headphone out at rates form 30 to 300bpm in six time signatures. A mono recorder employs the internal mic to capture song ideas, listen back to a phrase or slow down a tricky passage to play along. Though designed for the acoustic instrument player and educator, the PT-7 is the ideal companion for any instrument player — from student wind instruments to electric guitar.
