What people are saying about PolyNome:
------
Peter Erskine (Steely Dan, Weather Report, Steps Ahead, Kate Bush):
“PolyNome is great for teaching, practicing and rehearsing. Tempo input by way of the number pad is a terrific feature, and the subdivision possibilities are endless. Plus, this is the only metronome I’ve used that you can actually LEARN from. Simple and brilliant: simply brilliant.”

Will Lee says...
"Wow! Polynome is a brilliant tool for drummers and any musician! It allows you to understand precisely what subdivisions among bars of time feel like, teaches you the drum rudiments, and so much more. I love "time check" where it'll leave bars of silence in between bars of click to see if your groove stays in time."

What's new in version 2.4.9
2.4.9 brings some great new features and improvements to PolyNome.

BIG FEATURES
---------------
** New Voice Counting Options (Pro)**

- Tapping on a Metronome you'll see a new option for "Auto Counting". This will add voice counting to your rhythm to help you (or your student) learn how to count it!

- If you prefer to add counting manually, or you want to use voice numbers for something different, there's a new sound entry page called "Counting" that gives you buttons for the numbers 1 through 12, along with subdivision voice sounds. You can assign them to the rhythm as you wish.


** Tempo Improvements **

- Tapping and holding the tempo nudge buttons will now increment/decrement the tempo in steps of 10bpm. Or, if you prefer, by classical metronome steps (the behaviour can be set in Preferences)

- On the Quick Tempo Entry page, you'll now see the classical tempo terms under the tempo. You can swipe them to move between them, or tap on the label for a drop down of all terms. Choosing a term will set the tempo to the middle of the defined range.

- Swipe tempo is back!


** Backup Improvements **

- There's a new "Backup All" option in the Backup menu. This will create a single file containing all of your Presets, Playlists and Practice Events. You can AirDrop it to another device (for syncing), or save it to files.
(NOTE: You can only import this file into PolyNome version 2.4.9 and above)

- Importing is much faster in 2.4.9, and the most recent version of a Preset or Playlist is the one that's kept if a duplicate exists.


SMALL FEATURES
---------------
- All known bugs from 2.4.8 have been fixed. If you find others, please let me know via the chat feature on the Help page

- A lot of back end code has been re-written to make it easier to move forward with more exciting new features in future releases!



I hope you enjoy these new features.

If you have time to leave (or update) an App Store review, it's much appreciated and really helps with future development.

Any questions, just get in touch via the App.

Thanks for using PolyNome!
