This ad-free metronome allows the entry of custom rhythms to help
musicians play in time when playing songs with complex rhythms.
Rhythms can be made up of whole notes down to sixteenth notes
(including dotted notes, triplets, and ties) and rests of similar duration.
Time signatures can be specified to accentuate the clicks on the
downbeat and slightly accentuate every second beat (or third beat in
e.g., 6/8 time).

The tempo can be entered with a keyboard, selected among a drop-down list
of Italian tempo markings, or adjusted with buttons.

The rhythm and tempo can be saved in the application's memory.
The rhythm can also be copied to and pasted from the clipboard.
Go to the import/export screen (accessed through the big "floppy disc"
button icon) for this.

This metronome is audio-only and does not provide "visual clicks".

An advanced entry mode (reached by clicking on the "keyboard" icon on the
keyboard) allows for the entry of notes, rests and time signatures of
arbitrary duration.
E.g.,: Enter "n1/32" for a thirty-second note, "n3/64" for a dotted
thirty-second note, "n1/7" for a septuplet (seven notes in the time of
one); "r1/64" for a sixty-fourth rest;
"t7/4" for a 7-over-4 time signature.
It is also possible to group notes with parenthesis.
Individual notes and rests and groups can be played multiple times by
appending an asterisk and a number.
E.g.,: "(n1/2n1/4*2)*3" would play three times:
half-note, quater-note, quater-note.

----
Known bugs:

The rhythm entry field does not allow moving the cursor by tapping,
making selections, or copy/pasting. Use the arrow keys on the keyboard to
move. Use the import/export screen (accessed
through the big "floppy disc" button icon) to copy or paste.

If the application sleeps for too long, the rhythm entry might be replaced
by "x". I suggest you save your rhythms often, and reload them if that
happens.

Useful and well done. Love that one can configure a custom rhythm, and that it highlights the first beat of each bar. Best free metronome app I know for Android.

Jake Himmel

Its great however, can I get 5-let rhythms?

Vartouhie Leranian

brilliany exactly what musicians of all levels musicians need this app thank you very much to the makers

uziel jimenez

This metronome is awesome! It lets you create your own rhythm and save it! Just great!

Mike Harrington

Great metronome Thanks for the work that you have put into this app. Fairly easy to use and setup the way you want it. One suggestion though is to increase the volume significantly as I do not use headphones and can barely hear it. Although this might seem like a minor issue, it becomes a big distraction when I find myself focusing more on trying to hear the metronome than on playing with the metronome. Otherwise, it's a great app, thanks.

Good for me, a beginning student, when playing complex rhythms. It is a little low volume, though, and neither a directly connected or bluetooth external speaker amplifier help with that.

Caleb Wilson

It's Amazing but... I tried to put in 4-lets in a 3/4 measure and it doesn't play correctly. Can I get some help?

Good for classical musicians as can add dotted crotchet beats. Only drawback is it is a little quiet.

daniël bosold

Missing something Doesn't work - there's no way to actually enter a rhythm as keyboard only produces an 'x'.

Talmage Duncannon

straight and to the point. YES! This is a true tool. Thank you.

John Hites

This is GREAT !!! Easy to use, accurate. I teach guitar and will be using this app every day. I'm kicking myself I didn't look for a rhythm trainer sooner. I am very glad I found it. THANK YOU MUCH !!!!!
