Compás is an animated metronome for flamenco guitarists to help them stay in time while practicing. It uses simple patterns of palmas (handclaps) and cajon (percussion) for the major palos (musical forms of flamenco).

・Pick up where you left off. The app remembers the palo and speed you were last playing.
・Accented beats are animated to help you feel the compás (rhythm).
・Change the tempo easily by swiping up or down on the screen.
・Authentic palmas and cajon sounds (graciously provided by Flamenco Explained).
・Minimalist design for ease of use.

Wow! This works better than any Compas Metronome ever!

I once performed for a dancer. I was out of compas, but the dancers heel from her flamenco footwork commanded my compas, and helped shape it up. This compas will command your hand in a similar way. My first 5 minutes with this, and I’m already sounding better! Thank you. This is truly a great achievement for someone that has always found staying in compas challenging.

This app helps me internalize the compas to learn establish the beat and Palmas. A wonderful app to learn how to accompany.
