Aids in the practice of runs, excerpts and complete compositions.

Overview

Metron,\"icon\" the brainchild of a classically trained musician, aids in the practice of runs, excerpts and complete compositions. Featuring an intuitive front panel, you can launch and start practicing instantly. An organized back panel provides access to powerful extra features.

In addition to the usual single and multiple beat ticks of digital metronomes, Metron offers complex time signatures with beat grouping and dynamic accellerando and ritardando through a high precision playback engine, driven by a bar based sequencer that offers detailed control over tempo, rhythm patterns and beat volume. Metron incorporates a tuner that can be calibrated to cent level.

Features in detail:
Metronome:

  • Portrait and landscape mode.
  • Tempo from 10 to 400 Beats Per Minute.
  • Accelerando and ritardando (\"Variance\").
  • Specify a factor between one quarter (0.25) and double (2.0) the current
  • tempo. (Useful when practicing complex sequences.)
  • Tap the tap pad to set the tempo.
Sequencer:
  • Create your own library with any number of sequences. A set with the most commonly used time signatures is included by default.
  • Create sequences with any number of bars.
  • Each sequence can set a countdown, a start tempo, a variance and whether the metronome stops at the end of the sequence or repeats the sequence from the beginning.
  • Each bar consists of one or more time signatures and can set a tempo and a variance starting on any beat. A bar can be set to repeat up to a 100 times.
  • A time signature can have between 1 and 64 beats over a dotted or undotted denominator. (examples: 7/4, 2/8., 9/32, 1/2., 3/1)
  • A time signature can be subdivided into beat groups. Grouping beats affects metronome playback.

I used to hate using a metronome cause I couldn't find a siutable one that could fit into my extreme music with weird odd tempos, high speeds and frequent changes! But not until Metron came to my iPhone and solved all my problems! I now enjoy playing with a metronome and could program the weirdest song and it plays along just perfectly! I've tested the application and took it to the extremes and all the functions clearly makes this app the best metronome and music app on the iPhone and the best metronome from those chunky $20 ones. Especially the interface, the sound which we could hear over very loud heavy music and the fact that my band could program a whole song and just play along. This is my favorite application on the iPhone! The help you get from the developers is also as perfect! Great job to its developers!!

Works pretty well. No problem getting a 3+3+2 programmed. The only thing is, that the only beats I want to hear are the major beats of each group. There is no way to turn off the other beats. Ken Harstine
