Far more than a metronome, SYNKD is a revolutionary educational tool for all musicians. The app combines an easy-to-use graphic-based rhythmic sequencer with a highly advanced metronome. Build and save rhythm chains for practice routines and skill development. Download pre-programmed rhythm chains to maximize your practice time, learn new patterns, and perfect your timing, all from the palm of your hand.

A must have for ALL musicians, especially Drummers
I own many different metronome apps, making me somewhat of a metronome enthusiast, but after one of my favorite drummers mentioned he uses, Synkd, I immediately purchased it from the App Store, and I'm so glad I did.
Before Synkd, I would simply set a specific BPM and begin playing along while reading my rudiments. Now, I'm able to not only set the BPM, but I can customize beats within bars all while using different time signatures and subdivisions in the same "Chain." This is so helpful because it means you can input all of your note values and practice without having to focus on reading. You can also change accidents on specific stems within beats. Also, if your fellow musicians have Synkd, too, you can easily share your chains with them. This feature makes writing music and collaborating a breeze! The list of features goes on, but I'd thought I'd highlight just a few.
Coming from an experienced musician (drummer) who has purchased many apps to aid in my improvement, I can confidently say that Synkd is not only the most advanced app for musicians--specifically drummers--but also the most effective. Using this app properly will surely improve your playing!
I hope this review helps aid you in your decision whether or not to purchase the app. Cheers!
Don’t fully understand time signatures
This is very close to being the best thing on the market. But it became obvious that you don’t totally understand time signatures. The lack of dotted rhythms and adjusted subdivisions during compound meter makes this app very ordinary. If you’re in compound meter you should be able to control each 8th note instead of each quarter note. Also, you count off needs to be adjusted so that it reflects the time signature. Close but missing significant basics. If you look at the “tempo” app you could learn how compound meter works and apply to your app!
Love it! I use it every day. I've had most of my percussion students get it as well. You must have the most current iOS though, as any older devices won't work properly- iPod touch 5 etc...
