METRONAUT is a revolutionary app that will empower you to play any instrument – including your voice – as if you had a real orchestra in your living room to accompany you.
Do you practice often?
Do you enjoy pushing your boundaries?
Do you want to craft your interpretation freely?
Do you play a rare instrument?
Did you just start as a singer?
Are you a music teacher?
Then Metronaut is your ideal musical companion!
HOW IT WORKS
Our app enables you to be accompanied by professional musicians, regardless of your skill level or instrument. Metronaut listens to you in realtime and adapts accompaniment data to your speed, position, rhythm, performance and voice. This is done thanks to our unique machine listening capabilities as a result of 8 years of intense R&D at Ircam Labs in Paris.
NOTE: Metronaut is free to download and offers 10 minutes of free play time every month. To enjoy unlimited play time, subscribe to Metronaut Premium (weekly or monthly plan).
Payment will be charged to iTunes Account at confirmation of purchase. Subscriptions automatically renew unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period, by going to the user’s Account Settings after purchase. Payment will be charged to iTunes Account within 24-hours prior to the end of the current period. Any unused portion of a free-trial period, will be forfeited when the user purchases a subscription.
PLAY ACCOMPANIED BY THE BEST PROFESSIONAL MUSICIANS
Metronaut’s accompanists are among the best orchestras and pianists. Each accompaniment offers fully acoustic and high quality studio recordings. You can adjust its tempo without impairing sound quality.
SETUP YOUR TEMPO AS DESIRED
If you play music mainly as a hobby, Metronaut will help improve your level, as if musicians were standing by your side. You can play any piece you wish, at your rhythm, freely. And this at the original tempo, or at any other tempo you want.
MASTER YOUR PROGRESS
Aside from playing the instrument per se, nothing is harder than keeping up with the right tempo. Note after note, Metronaut’s "Tempo Regulator" feature will draw you towards that comfortable tempo you had initially set.
LIBERATE YOURSELF AND BYPASS YOUR LIMITS
Get empowered to play at your own rhythm throughout the piece: Metronaut adapts accompaniment tempo to your interpretation in real-time.
EXPAND YOUR REPERTOIRE
You can transpose any piece for your voice or instrument: baritone for a soprano, violon for a clarinet… Whether you want to play a classical piece with a rare instrument or with another instrument than the one originally intended, or sing outside of your voice range, you will enjoy just the right transposition.
EXPERIENCE OUR DIGITAL SCORE
Metronaut leverages music scores to the digital age: setting the tempo down to the very beat, a score scrolling as you play, selecting where to start down to the very note, choosing clefs, transposing for different instruments or voice ranges… All meant to empower you to perform under the best possible conditions.
OPTIMIZE YOUR PROGRESS
Metronaut provides everything you need to make more progress and avoid bad habits: Record and listen to the piece you just played while following your performance on the score. A difficult part to play? Select and play it in loop until you get round the cape. You can also tune your instrument to your ideal pitch, annotate your score... And listen to other interpretations! Use all the data and statistics you need to track your practice frequency and thus optimize your work.
ENRICH OUR CATALOG, SHARE YOUR PERFORMANCES
Metronaut's catalog expands by you and for you: upvote pieces suggested by other users and suggest your own new pieces!
You can also make audio or video recordings of your performances and share them to help other musicians.
Shhhh… It’s a secret but the next big thing for Metronaut is already underway...
In the meantime we added some finishing touches on current screens and successfully tracked down and eliminated a bug affecting practice goals (phew!).

Ratings and Reviews
This app is everything my musical fiancé and I have been waiting for. Living in an apartment and isolated from a good group makes it hard to stay polished, and this app has given us hope. ^_^ A huge thanks to all of the people who worked on this app.
The only thing keeping my rating under 5 stars is, like others have stated, the music is still a little limited. I’m not talking about having to use points to purchase new songs (with the quality of the app, I am happy to). I really want to see this app grow and keep expanding the repertoire of the instruments. Maybe it could even go a step further and allow us to record accompaniments for other users? The possibilities are endless, and Metronaut seems to have struck gold.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the review and all your suggestions! 🙏
We would like to invite you to try our brand new version where the repertoire has been tripled (and growing fast as we speak) and setup to bring more musical excellence right to your living room!🎼
Allowing you to offer YOUR accompaniments to other users is down on our roadmap and with your encouragement we can get there fast! 🎺
Switch to subscription model bad move
Edit: I’m changing my rating from 1 to 3 stars because the app itself is great, and the developer is very responsive, which is a great attribute. I can’t go higher than 3, though, because the nickel-and-diming of a hundred services is not good, and I can’t support that.
Well, so much for that. I had built up some nauts to “purchase” some music... and TODAY they switched the app to a subscription-based model, so I lost all the virtual money I had saved up. 10 lousy minutes per month for free, and then you have to pay for more? No thanks. I had just raved about this app earlier this week to an Orchestra I play with and shared on Facebook LAST NIGHT! They all LOVED the idea of a reward-based system instead of subscribing like other apps. Now I have to recant my endorsement and delete my Facebook post because I don’t share something I’m not excited about. I don’t do subscription services like this because eventually you’re spending a lot of money per month with multiple services. You don’t notice it when you sign up... just when all the bills come. I really liked this app, too. I’m disappointed.
Developer Response ,
We know that switching Metronaut to a freemium model with subscriptions is a big change for musicians who used the free version of the App before and we understand your frustration about the Nauts you had previously saved up. We're sorry you're disappointed and we loved the reward-based system as well, however this model wasn’t sustainable for the App both to be maintained to its current performance standard and to keep growing (catalog- and feature-wise). To ease this transition for our former users we are offering you 1 month free premium subscription with unlimited access to all pieces of the catalog. If you have further questions don’t hesitate to write us to firstname.lastname@example.org !
The closest thing available to playing music with others
I play with an orchestra. There is nothing like that magic when we are all on the same wavelength and join tempos without saying a word. But when we use an accompaniment track, it is always dead, somehow.
Until now. Having dynamic accompaniment through Metronaut unlocked something in my playing. Especially being able to use it while alone in my room and with/without headphones, it allowed for experimentation and the ability to comfortably play at any dynamic. I discovered a whole new style for when I play the viola. This interplay between my playing and Metronaut helped me internalize the music at lightning speed. I remember how it felt to play after I was done.
I highly recommend this app for all classical musicians, period!
