Ratings and Reviews
Perfect for Practice
If you’re looking for a simple and smart metronome for practice this is nearly perfect. It has several features that are hard to find all together in other apps. The design is well thought out so all features are all quickly accessible from the main screen.
The features that I really like:
1. Realistic Pendulum ... with an elastic swing!
2. ... at the same time - Beat markers!
3. Automated practice trainer (by time, reps or % speed)
4. Automated practice log
5. Song list where you can save different settings
6. The drum sound (cymbals)
There are also basic color themes and a basic tuner. You can sub-divide the beat but it doesn’t do polyrhythms.
I’ve bought and used the 10 most popular metronome apps, but this has become my go-to because of the clean easy interface that mimics a real metronome, but also adds the features that an app can give you. All without overloading itself with too many features.
Features I’d like to see:
- landscape mode (only works in portrait mode)
- be able to stress different beats (other than 1)
- beat block (like in pro metronome)
Please fix the sound issue.
I am a ten year old trumpet player. This metronome is not loud enough! I can’t hear the beat when I am practicing for my recital! Please fix this because it is driving me crazy. Help! I end up having to play really quietly so I can hear this thing!I love this app because it allows you to change the tempo, and tells you what musical term that is. I also like how it beeps at the end of each measure. But even if I turn the sound all the way up, I can barely hear it! I have an iPad mini so this should not be a problem. Also, the note tuner is one key off. Please fix. Thank you.
Simple; useful for meditation
I wanted a basic metronome app to help me regulate my breathing during meditation. There a loads of apps out there with all the bells and whistles that musicians need, but this app is the only one that approximates what I wanted: something to simply keep time for me. I’m grateful to have found this, and I’m especially delighted by the fact that it offers a visual of a swinging metronome arm.
It does more than I need it to do, but those features don’t get in the way. It’s perfect for my needs.
