        We have now modified this metronome/pitch generator  to function exactly like  Franz IMP 2000 pitch pipe and this model is as loud. Volume can be changed with the volume control. 
        We have installed a momentary contact switch on the Intelli DM8LT  that operates exactly as the Franz IMP 2000. Simply select the pitch and press the momentary  button on the side of the unit, and your pitch is there for you... release the button and the sound will stop.

       If you plan to use the metronome, you can order the DM8LT with a hands off permanent-momentary  switch -- you press the button lightly to get the pitch - press the button all the way down  and release, and the pitch or metronome beat stays on... press the button again and the sound goes off. 

       There is no need to turn the unit on or off to either hear the pitch or to save the battery life of the unit. There is no sound while selecting the pitch.. only when the button on the side of the unit is pressed, will you hear a tone. You can also hear the metronome in the same manner by switching the right selector switch to metronome.   When traveling, turn the unit to the off position in case the button is accidentally pressed during transit.   This will save the battery being drained and/or your luggage drawing attention!
       We worked with a singer from Sweet Adelines  to design a new dial.  It has enhanced letter size and the letter C is in a contrast color, so that selecting the pitch you need in the right octave is very easy. This is the largest display of letters available and will make it easy to select in poorly lit situations. The dial can be easily turned with one hand and the large lettering is easy to operate upside down if it is hanging around your neck.
Over 3 octaves of pitches with pitch shift.-  C3-B5.
Size:5"H x 2.1/2"W x 7/8"D. Weight 6 oz.
Pitch Shift A440 - 446
Pitch Accuracy  + or - 1%
One Year Warranty


  Metronome features of the DM8LT:

Range : 0-216 beats per minute using a large easy to read and easy to turn dial. 

Light and or click - this metronome is one of the loudest for the money ... with a great clave (wood block)  tone. 

8 color LED's move with beat - when in the accenting mode the first light will flash green -- all others are red. 

Chime - bell  accents downbeat on 0,2,3,4,5 & 6. When set to 0 there is only the clicking - clave tone. Also 6 beat sub-divisions -- Eight Note, Triplet, Sixteenth, Dotted Eighth, Triplet & Sixteenth with rests.

Earphone jack - earphone not included.

Flip out metal stand.  

Uses 9 volt battery - included.

Front Mounted Momentary Switch 
With Back Lit Dial

This is identical to the model above, but has a separate switch installed that will turn on a lighting system behind the dial.... this is very useful for live performances where lighting is very low or there is no lighting.  Many live performances turn the lights down between selections, making it difficult to prepare the next pitch needed.

MetroAmp Micro
Amplified Pitch Generator


      We have had many requests by Barber Shop Groups, Chorus Directors, and others for a substitute to the Franz IMP 2000. The combination of the Matrix Mr600 and the Dean Markley Micro Amp is louder than the IMP 2000. 
        The Mr600 will generate 3 octaves of pitches or metronome sounds and the Micro Amp will make it loud enough for most situations. The amplifier is 3 watts and has a 3" speaker. Most metronomes only have .25 watts and a 1" speaker. The sound is at least 10 times louder than any other metronome/pitch generator. 
      Both units use 9 volt batteries (the amp includes the battery). We provide all the connections and instructions. 
 The main difference between the IMP 2000 and the Matrix Mr 600:

  • The IMP 2000 had a momentary contact switch, allowing you to simply push a button to hear the pitch. To operate the Mr600, the switch at the top right must be pressed down to hear the pitch, when done it must be pushed back up to turn the sound off.

  • The size of the Imp 2000 was relatively small. Since the volume of this package is loud, the size and weight are much larger, but can still be held in your hand. The weight is 16 ounces. We  provide a way to attach  the amp & metronome into one easy to carry unit, or you can attach the amp to your belt or clothing, while the Mr600 is held in your hand. You can even put the amp out in front of your group and hold the metronome in hand.
