Incredibly Useful for Drummers Running Click For Bands

As a gigging drummer, I was searching for a highly customizable tool for click generation for live performance. After experimenting with a variety of apps (Tempo Advance, Pro Metronome), I discovered PolyNome Pro, and although I’m only scratching the surface of its features, I must say that this metronome app is one of a kind. In fact to call this a metronome app understates its capabilities because of the sequencer programming functions. Let me highlight just two features that make this app immediately useful for a drummer who is running a click track to send to band members in a live performance context. First, most metronome apps will only give you a handful of click tones that your bandmates will not find pleasing to have in their mix. Polynome offers an amazing library of sounds to use for click, from digital beeps to layers of percussion. You will find something palatable for everyone among these sounds. Second, Polynome enables you to create customizable voice count-ins for songs. For a band with all members on in-ear monitors, the ability to start a song with a “silent “count off is a game changer that will improve transitions between songs and professionalize the presentation of your stage show. All from a simple iphone or iPad Mini. I would encourage any drummer using click in a band to give Polynome a try before deploying bulkier and costlier setups.

Amazing and unique use of tech for drummers!

Fantastic app! I have recreated various bars from drum books so I can hear complex patterns and learn them much faster than reading alone. I’ve used it to get my head around a 4:3 polymeter, entered as a polyrhythm but it works well for that and doesn’t get off tempo, which happens when running two individual metronomes (two devices) simultaneously. I use the auto advance playlist feature for pad practice. Most metronomes will change the BPM automatically but only for a set amount of play time (for example +10 BPM every 3 minutes). PolyNome’s playlists allows you to do 1 minute at X BPM, then 3 minutes at Y BPM etc etc. There is a bit of a learning curve so don’t think that you’re going to rock this in the first 5 minutes. I’m usually weary of apps that require a learning curve because you take the time to learn them and then the developer abandons the project. In this case I’m getting a lot out of this app and I get the feeling it will be around for a while so I’m putting in the time. For me, it’s a fun app to play around with so I spend non-drumming time getting to know it better.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the glowing review. It seems like you’re making use of a lot of the features and really getting your head around the app.

I just wanted to confirm that it’s not going away any time soon. I’m still actively developing it and working on new features daily. There are some exciting things to come in future versions.

Thanks again!

Seriously worth every penny

It is a powerful metronome that has made my life better. It is allowing me to practice ideas in ways that I have not been able to. For example: I can take a standard, play a chord on a eighth note and rip melodic ideas, then change melodic focus at the next measure in relationship to the next chord, and play that chord for an eight note. In other words chord on beat two, melodic, new melodic center, new chord beat two. I can do this now and know that I am hearing it right because the metronome is saying the numbers. Before I would have to trust my feel. Now I can check. (Every now and again I am wrong but, I was doing better then I thought). Downside is with power comes a learning curve. I feel that what I am getting out of this app is well worth my time spent in understanding it. Awesome
