The ultimate mobile metronome?
Pro MetronoMe is a cool new device that might well come in handy for iwatch (or android watch)-wearing musicians on the move. it focuses on a sleek, user-friendly experience allied to accurate timekeeping. Key features include adjustable time signatures, subdivisions, polyrhythm, a rhythm trainer, stage mode and practice mode. customisation is possible, allowing the user to modify sounds, accents and even the dynamics of the beat itself. You can create complex patterns with triplets, dotted notes and non-standard time signatures. Pro Metronome also supports a host of secondary features: background play mode, in-app volume adjust and the ability to save song/tempo playlists to share with other musicians.
the app supports several ways to experience beats. a free version of the app includes sound, but upgrading to Pro enables Visual, Flash, Vibrate and airplay Modes – handy for when you’re playing loud instruments or when you need to really feel the beat. Flash mode uses the device’s camera flash to sync up the entire band easily. You can use airplay mode to beam the metronome to a projector or apple tV.
the rhythm trainer can mute a selected bar in the beat, allowing your brain to fill in the gap and thus train your innate sense of timing. it’s a simple idea not found in any other app to date.
the Pro version costs just $2.99, so surely this must be a no-brainer for guitarists with iwatches or the like! Visit apple’s app store for further details.
