PolyRhythm was developed for all professional musicians, regardless of
instrument, whether composing, performing or conducting!
The app produces the most common rhythmic overlays (such as 5:3) using two different clicks accompanied by a display of the score.
Available rhythmic overlays range from 3:2 to 13:4 on a systematic basis with decadic BPM-steps for best study results. A regular metronome (also with decadic BPM-steps) is included.
All sounds are based on loops in order to achieve maximum accuracy. Please make sure that the Ring/Silent switch of your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad is in ring mode (otherwise there will be no sound).
"PolyRhythm, your precise metronome for complex rhythmic structures!" - Wolfram Winkel, author and co-developer, lecturer for rhythm and percussion at the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich
A lite version and more:
- Support for iPhone 6

Ratings and Reviews
A mainstay of modern civilization
When you think about relationships between time and numbers, this app delivers pure wisdom of the ages: how does it sound? You, as the listener, are encouraged to tune in to the most profound, fundamental rhythmic figures. I would encourage everyone to meditate with this app, practice with this app, and use it as a starting off point to exploring new rhythms. Rhythms that are incredibly simple, yet profound.

Easy to use! I am so tired of all these poly-metronome apps that have a million "bells and whistles" -no pun intended. This is to the point, and extremely useful.
Great job! Sometimes apps do too much, but this app actually helps you understand the counting and tapping of polys -but it's up to you to go further.
I was hoping for more
If you are looking for a audio click track, here it is. I wish there was an options of blinking lights or visual cues of which note is playing, or a vibration feedback. Without a headphone jack on my phone, this app is useless, if I am in a public place and want to practice or keep time.
I need a pulse I can feel
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
