What customers are saying:
***** "THE metronome for serious classical musicians"
***** "The program doesn't choke on unusual time signatures- you can make them yourself and quickly configure any accent pattern you want."
***** "For what it does, it is the cleanest , fastest and most logical one I've found. It's worth the money if you need the functionality it provides."
***** "This is a GREAT app for any serious classical musician, and I will continue to encourage all my IOS colleagues and students to buy it."

Most complete metronome available on iOS:
– Enter the measures of your own musical pieces
– Specify any time signature, even per measure if you want
– Specify where the accents are (e.g. 7/8 as 3+2+2 or 2+2+3)
– Specify any tempo, even per measure if you want
– Specify a tempo by tapping it ("tap tempo")
– Select and play a set of measures to rehearse difficult parts
– Slow down or speed up the metronome to rehearse more effectively
– Configure the pitch of the metronome to best match your instrument
– Maintain a list of your musical pieces and share them with others

Musician's Metronome is a high precision, advanced, yet easy to use metronome. In its simplest form, it plays rhythms just like any other metronome. You can, however, also play complex rhythms very easily. It gets even better when your music has many different time signatures and tempos. The user interface of this metronome is designed in such a way that you can enter music very rapidly: after setting up the preset buttons, a single tap will add a new measure with the desired time signature.

To rehearse a specific part of your music, you can select it. When you hit the play button, only the selected measures will be played. If you have enabled auto-repeat in the settings, the part will play over and over again, so that you can thoroughly train it. You can even set it to play slower or faster.

You can set up the time signature preset buttons for every piece. Using the two wheels, you can choose the number of beats in the measure, and the beat duration. Using the buttons at the bottom of the screen, you can indicate the accents in the measure. The numbers on the buttons indicate how the measure should be counted. These accents play with a different sound, so that you can actually hear the difference between 7/8 that is played as 2+2+3 and one that is played as 3+2+2.

You can have many pieces in your library. You can edit the details, add new pieces, delete pieces. You can even share them with fellow musicians: by clicking the action button, you can send the selected piece by e-mail.

When you receive a piece by e-mail, just click the attachment to open it, and import it. It will be added to your library so that you can use it in any way you like.

Using the settings window, you can configure how many measures must be counted of before the actual playing starts. Also, you can configure the metronome sounds, whether playing should auto-repeat, and how much detail you want to see in the measures.

Use the built-in help function to learn how everything works.

The best keeps getting better

Every update of this well-crafted software adds features, putting it even farther ahead of the "competition." (I use quotes because there really is no competition.) The new ability to add note values such as 16th = 96, even if for only one bar, greatly increases the ability to match an actual piece of music. The word "songs" seems to have disappeared, with a more professional "library" tab instead. All of the good stuff from the previous version is retained, such as the ability to slow down or speed up a piece globally, keeping odd meters in proportion. Although this app works great on an iphone, I really love it on my iPad, as everything is luxuriously big that way. This is a small download, not expensive for what it is capable of. Are you a classical musician who needs to learn contemporary music (or Stravinsky?) This app is for you!!

Update- the latest update looks even better, esp. on the iPad. Now all we need is a Watch version;).

Great app... But

Great app! Highly intuitive for musicians of all kinds. Programmable feature is the best! However, adding options for different metronome sounds would be great, rather than just different notes (also fixing that screen because I think it only displays properly when iPhone is horizontal). Also, more options for the count off feature (number of beats, sound, etc).

Missing important feature

I like a lot of the features of this app - the customizing of mixed meters, the saving of songs with a tempo, the setting of the click sound, the ability to set a sound off measure, to name a few. But there is a serious failing. Unless I missed it, the tempo sets only to a quarter-note. There seems to be no provision for a metronome marking of 66 to the dotted quarter, for example. It's more than a little inconvenient to have to do the math every time one is faced with compound meters. This really needs to be addressed.
