Metronome - Tempo Trainer
By digitalsirup GmbH
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
This is not only a metronome but also a tempo trainer that allows you to train stability and speed of your tempo. Depending on your settings it goes mute for a while and lets you keep the tempo.
Likes and dislikes
Bought this based on one feature. The Easy, Medium, Hard randomness feature which works as advertised and is helpful. (but that’s ALL it does)
VERY annoying is some basic functionality. Like setting the tempo. You have to slide the virtual weight up and down (simulating a real old time one). When using your finger do so, it’s not easy and most important… it changes a couple of beats when you release it. VERY VERY VERY annoying. In the future, can I simply type in the tempo I want?????
Also, there is no start and stop button anywhere. You start it by swiping the pendulum. I have not figured out how to stop it other than to exit the app.
Need to improve some BASIC functionality.
The first swing is not in time, which is really a shame since I bought this for the training feature where it goes silent for a while and then resumes beating. After resuming the time between the first and second clicks is inaccurate. Very obviously wrong. Professional musician here, with 30 plus years experience.
If you are buying it for just the regular metronome, there are better ones.
If you are buying it for the trainer that uses silence, don't. Unless you only want to check the first click after the silence.
