Best metronome app ever

This is not one of those apps that makes you buy their stuff to get to use more on this is one of the apps that is actually on the market free to use and isn’t trying to scam you into buying a lot of stuff just to use a metronome. They do have a wearable device that cost about $100 that’s can link directly to the app but it is not needed to use the app. I haven’t bought in the Yum wearable part of it yet, But with all of those apps that I’ve wasted money Paying for extra content I could’ve use that money to buy the wearable device. So I suggest you check this app out if you’re looking for a Metronome that’s easy to use it has many different features you easily get overwhelmed but that’s the point when it does have some cool options like you can tap a button over and over and over to set your own tempo . if you’re going to download a metronome stop wasting money and download this one if you want to use money not wasted because this is not a waste by the actual device I’m going to do that resume or update this review on without the app and tracks with the device one side by the device but for now it’s five stars

Edit: Klopfgeist and other sounds stutters at higher tempos and while using different subdivisions.

Edit: Be careful which sound you choose for the metronome, as they sometimes stutter and change the downbeat. In my initial review I forgot that I had changed the sound to Klopfgeist. There are some other sounds that act funny at higher tempos and different subdivisions, but some of them work fine. And the fact that you can change sounds, subdivisions, and time signatures is great.

(Pre-edited review): I’ll preface by saying the interface is easy to use and I like that it is one of the few free metronome apps that allows you to customize time signature, subdivisions, and click sounds. I am a drummer, and having a tool to help lock in more difficult patterns, grooves, and rudiments is wonderful. However, whenever the audible beats are at highish tempos/actual playing speeds (noticed it starting with quarter notes above 120bpm, eighth notes at 64bpm, triplets at 84bpm), there are clicks that sound like digital clipping distortion, sometimes blended with the chosen click sound, sometimes swinging on offbeats. Occasionally, the metronome will stutter off-tempo and change the downbeat, halting practice, defeating the purpose of using a metronome. I only use the standalone app as a practice tool. Be wary if you are thinking about using it in a gigging scenario or spending money on it or its affiliated products.

I get it!

Took a few weeks of using the soundbrenner in different positions to find the right spot. I’m playing Bass so I settled on the chest rig between me and the instrument. I was mildly frustrated at first because I couldn’t enjoy playing to the pulse right off the bat. Had to use the audible click to get new material into the ballpark of being able to play with the pulse. Kept at it, all the while moving with the beat. Eventually the time just popped out like one of those 3d illusions you stare at long enough. Best way I can explain it is your more feeling like being next to a kick drum than landing on an audible click. Your body just absorbs the time and synchronizes. Further into it the pulse disappears. So neat! Thanks soundbrenner crew. Your gizmo has poked all kinda holes in my time and I’m better for it. Worth the money, worth the time. Do the work, move with it, level up.
