The Built-in Mic and Speaker Make it Easy to Record and Play Back your Practice sessions
Since a mic and speaker are built-in to the TMR-50, you can start recording when the moment is right. Of course there is also an Input jack and a Phones jack, so you can record via a contact mic or play back the audio through earphones. There's also a convenient Loop Play function that repeatedly plays the specified region of the recorded data, allowing you to practice along with a specific phrase. In addition, the tuner, metronome, and recorder can be used simultaneously for even more effective training.

Ok, I'm sure that I tried "everything" to improve the volume when using the Recorder function before I wrote my review below, but the other day I recorded something using the contact mic clipped to the bridge of my cello, and The volume on playback was good! Now, the quality of the recording is not great, but it is useful for hearing what you sound like if you are working on a piece (assuming you are not a pro of course.) i also see that the price is even lower now, and there is a "new and improved" contact mic with a more robust connection between the wire and the device. My older version has started to separate there, so I would recommend the new version.
I paid up for the TMR50, which on the day that I bought it was $50 more than the TM50 (today it is only $40 more; insult on top of injury). I wanted the "sound back" feature and I really wanted the recording feature. I also paid $5 more for the black than the white (that day) because the white gets smudged with use.
I play the cello. "Your mileage may vary."
* The tuner itself is very fussy / sensitive, more so than my basic Korg tuner. I don't consider that a huge negative, but the fluctuation from flat to sharp to flat while bowing an open string may drive some people crazy. And sometimes it just stays green so it is not impossible to get in sync with it. It's just fussy. I have a very resonant cello with lots of overtones, which may have something to do with that. I am not an expert.
* The metronome is great. Does what you would expect, and I like the tap feature.
* The "sound back" function is sort of annoying, but I still use it.Read more ›
The fold out stand seems a bit inadequate but it works. The unit would be improved with a larger display and a smaller "KORG" branding.
UPDATE: After some minimal use, the flimsy fold out stand broke off. To make matters worse, Korg will not sell me a replacement, citing some nonsense about "not available from the manufacturer". Non-existent customer support, compounded by shameful excuses does not warrant 5 stars.
I like the tuner. It seems pretty accurate (for guitar). The plan is to use it for violin too, but haven't had the chance yet.
I paid the extra $20 for the recording function. I do not like the way it works. The mic sensitivity is too low, and not adjustable. This means the recording level is frustratingly low. The playback is also extremely limited in volume level. So for practicing a singing part, I have to be a few inches away from the mic. I understand there may be a reason to have low sensitivity setting, especially with some band instruments, to prevent overloading/clipping. But why not provide a high-medium-low, or better yet, a 1-10 setting? And why does the output need to be so weak.
Korg really dropped the ball on the added feature. Seems like they had a product, the TM50, and thought, "How can we make a lot more $$ on this without requiring a significant investment? Let's add an old recording circuit we have lying around." Seems that way, anyway.
For the convenience of the combined features in a small package, and despite the very poor recording function, I will probably keep this unit. But unless you really need the convenience, save your money for a separate, superior recorder, maybe an Olympus, and just get the TM50.
