It's a simple to use rhythm computer together with a professional Metronome. It will help you practice your music in new ways.
The basic unit is a measure. A measure is one set of notes for a given tempo and notation. Like 120 bpm, 4/4 and 1/4 triolen notes.
Each measure knows about the loudness of each pitch, and what instrument is assigned to each pitch
Measures are grouped together in Grooves. A Groove must have one measure, but can consist of many more.
A song may consist of two Grooves
There is a rich instrument library that you can use to create beautiful sounding Grooves
Together, this allows you to either use this as a very sophisticated Metronome, that enables you to not just hear the passing of time in a rhytmic manner, but play the accents you need to hear to get in tune with your fellow musicians.
An example would be to create a Groove that matches the music you need to practice, and having a Clave 3-2 rhythm as a background.
