A programmable vibrating metronome/beat box with a flamenco clock display. The only metronome that lets you practice Subida (tempo change) and share rhythms online.
Beat Vibe is both a vibrating metronome and a programable beat machine aimed at both the flamenco player and non flamenco musician. Beat Vibe is pre-programmed with over 50 rhythm patterns from all major palls such as Bulerias, Alegrias, Tangos and more, including non-flamenco rhythms like Samba, Bosa Nova, Rock, Raggae and many more. You can easily program your own rhythm patterns, share them online, and download from the many rhythm patterns other users have shared.
The unique "Song Mode" lets you set a sequence of rhythm patterns to play, setting the number of repetitions and tempo. You can create rich percussion loops or practice change of tempo (subida)!
You can set Beat Vibe to vibrate letting you not only see and hear the rhythm but also feel it. Put the phone in your pocket and feel the rhythm as you play.

Ratings and Reviews
This app makes it easy to practice anywhere. The audio is good. And it is very easy to use.
Who would think that a flamenco compas would be available in my favorite geeky techi fun tool, my iPhone. Well I took a chance and searched anyway and couldn't believe what I found. So far I am 100% satisfied with the app. I would gladly accept any updates (start button-ahem), but this Flamenco guitarist gives it a 5 star rating. I haven't spent enough time to create my own compas and right now am only using the beats, but thats the beauty of this program, it has many possibilities. For now I will use it as a handy Bulerias compas' metronome, tomorrow - who knows...
