Rhythm Lab 4.0 is the best rhythm trainer and rhythm tool for the iPad!

New! On-screen keyboard. Play and improvise tunes and chords without being restricted to single tap notes. Integrates seamlessly with any external MIDI keyboard.

Simple. Test, Playback, Metronome, Loop, and Audio controls are easy to access on the main screen.

Flexible. Use Rhythm Lab to improve rhythmic accuracy, listen to new rhythms, create, copy, and import new rhythms, export rhythms, create rhythm worksheets, group rhythms into custom sets, and more! Use the iPad tap buttons or an external MIDI device to practice and test your accuracy. Many user features are highly customizable. Teachers can create customized student groups and import or export student results. Compatible with Audiobus 3.0 for expanded sound and recording possibilities.

Comprehensive. Rhythm Lab patterns are not limited to single patterns, but also include double patterns, drum patterns (left/right snare exercises), or three-part drumkit patterns (hi hat, snare, kick). Patterns can range from very simple, such as whole notes, half notes, quarter notes in simple meters, to very complex - with nested tuplets, mixed and irregular time signatures. Rhythm Lab also allows incomplete (pick-up) measures.

Worksheets. The worksheet feature is great for teachers who want to create printable, customized worksheets for students. You have the option of hiding time signatures and barlines, and including open space within measures.

Files. Rhythm Lab allows you to import or export patterns and users in JSON format, a standard data format. Worksheets can be exported in PDF format. Individual rhythm patterns can be imported from MusicXML files. Soundfonts can be imported in .sf2 format.

Documentation. Help documentation is now web-based, and will continue to expand to include video tutorials, FAQs and other documentation as needed.

What’s New

Version 4.1.6

Small bug fix - removed extra time signature that appeared temporarily in the first measure of custom patterns when creating mixed time signatures.

Fine for 1 handed rhythms, not good for 2 handed rhythms

I was quite impressed at first, but as a piano teacher I need my students to move quickly onto 2 handed rhythms, and this is where the app glitches.

The rh line doesn’t capture the full note length when you are holding down your finger on the pad. The lh line does the opposite and registers a fully held note value when you’ve lifted your finger after a tap.

I’ve cleaned the screen, and I’ve used the iPad in different orientations and the same issues present, so it’s not a problem with my touch screen

Professional grade rhythm training

Very impressive. Lots of patterns and styles. The multi-input is well done. So many great ideas and brilliantly executed. One can feel oneself working hard and improving quickly.
