BeatFactor: rhythm computer meet metronome

-> read the review at
-> over 150 different instruments, from Bongos to Steeldrums
-> nearly 100 predefined Grooves

Grooves and songs can be shared with your friends, or used as ringtones if you like

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.

Useful though needs some improvements

I am using beatfactor to learn brazilian rhythms on the guitar, it is better than practicing with just a metronome though the editing interface is a bit clumsy and it still has some bugs (the name editing doesn't appear on the black background,as an example). It should be possible to create something frombscratch without copying an existing groove, etc.
