Beats Metronome

Positive Grid Inc
[ This app may no longer be available for download ]

We built it because we love to have an awesome metronome to practice in time. The metronome is simple, beautiful and powerful.

Beats Metronome can be set to a whopping 35 different time signatures, including compound and complex meters. It also sports a handy tap-tempo function—great for figuring out song tempos—and 17 different tone options.

Turning on Flash Mode in the Settings page enables a strobe-like flash on each beat (it can also be set to flash only on the downbeat). This mode can be very useful onstage or in other low-light environments.

A different type of graphic depiction of the beat is provided when the Visual Beats function is turned on and the iOS device is rotated to landscape mode. The display changes to show circles that represent the beats in a measure. As the metronome counts the time, the appropriate circle is highlighted, providing an easy-to-follow visualized version of the tempo.

Developed by Positive Grid, the leading developer of music software tools. We focus on things that are solid for working musicians, with simple interface and cutting edge algorithm.
