There are plenty of metronomes on the app store, and for replacing a traditional metronome, these are fine - clicking and ticking away at the edge of your attention. but when it's critical that you or your students know where you are in the bar, counting out loud is more effective, especially for more complex meters and rhythms. Music teachers, composers, dance coaches, choreographers and cheerleaders all know: counting out loud is the way to go.

But when practicing by yourself, counting time can be very difficult when concentrating on notes or steps. Having a teacher or coach count time for you is fine, but when they need to call instructions or directions, they need to stop counting, so their instructions need to be in time as well. Plus, it's boring and exhausting to count "one two three four" all day long.

So why not let your phone do the counting for you? Introducing SpeakBeat: the vocal metronome! Fully customizable and programmable, with a many voices to choose from, SpeakBeat will count "5-6-7-8" all day long, never getting tired and never missing a beat.

SpeakBeat allows you to choose one of a set of studio-recorded high quality voices; choose any tempo using a dial or by tapping out a beats-per-minute; set a time signature, sub-beats, starting delay, and a fully-customizable count-in, either counting up ("five-six-seven-eight") or down ("three-two-one").
