what I'd like to see is an A/B signature that you put in the values (tempo set in bbm) and then have the thing be able to play things like 11 notes, such as in a Chopin's first Nocturne, against 6 notes---with two different distinct sounds
at the same time.
This is what the piano world demands
Great job with this metronome keep up the great work! i would like to have more rythms like afrobeat for example. :D
Me gustaría que el metrónomo lo puedas programar para que después de cierto número de minutos aumente la velocidad.
Espero y tomen en cuenta mi sugerencia.
I suggest you to put two or three tempo lines, or even a grid on each so you can't make polyrhythms ex: 5 against 4.
You metronome it's great!!!
In advanced metronome there is a beat counter. it starts from 1.1. for syncing with sheet its needed some time.
I suggest that it can optionally start at -2.1 providing enough time for me to get instrument.
After that i can check beat number in sheet and on metronome.
hi, czech translation is welcome. thx
Triplet rhythm feature, possibly?
i need a metrenome with the capability to give me a 19/16 time signature my band goes from things like 10/8 straight into 5/4 and up to 19/16 at 160 bpm so yeh we're very prog influenced and i would very much like to have a metrenome to help me make my parts consistant
It would be great if you add a nice human voice (female )
how about adding toms and other cymbals. also 8th, 16th etc notes
Para el metrónomo avanzado, me gustaría que presentara una imágen de la aguja del metrónomo como referencia visual; Como si fuese un director de orquesta.
Hey, Best Metronome.com is a very good tool its awesome. But i got a suggestion for you :
a copy/past option would be welcome =) thnx
Thanks for putting this up online!
Here's the metronome feature I'm dreaming of: Set the desired bpm. Play into an external mike. The metronome reads the bpm played and displays that continuously, so the student can see how much faster or slower than the set bpm s/he is playing. I imagine this would only work for music with a strong, steady beat, but I can hope . . . .
I was thinking the same thing. It'd be great if there were some compound time signatures like 6/8, 9/8, 12/8 since i use them a lot.
is there any possible way that there can be a 6/8 time siginiture beat
Great site man. I'd love to be able to export a beat as an MP3. So I could open it up in audacity and record over it.... and the whole high hat over the beat would be cool
First off, GREAT FREAKING WEBSITE!!!!!!
I only wish you could double layer the sounds for the adv. metronome. A constant hi-hat would be great over the drum beat. I'm attending Musicians Institute & a lot of bass players have limited live rehersals (with the drummer keeping CONSTANT time).
Either way, just found this website, and I'm going to tell everyone I know/meet about it!!!!
Keep up the great work!
Thanks for your post. Few more sounds would be good. It's already on the wish list. Maybe, someday, I will ...
Editing the pattern in the middle of it is not possible with mouse, however you can do that with "edit" button.
Hey there guys. Thanks for the great metronome! i really like that it goes up to 900 B/M. It will be great tho if it would have a few more sounds.
another thing that it might be cool is if you want to change a sound in the middle of your already composed rhythm...you have to delete everything until that respective sound you want to change...so changing the bass drum from the middle of your grove with a snare without having to delete everything until there would really save time.
GREAT WORK THO!!!
Just try Best Drum Trainer (BestDrumTrainer.com).
There is also link on the menubar, named "TEMPO TRAINER - Try it!"
I'm waiting for your feedback. :-)
I see several happy customers have suggested the incremental tempo And would like to see that myself - I use it with my string bass for getting difficult classical passages up to speed, With that in mind it would be nice if there were 3 fields for the BPM change:
1) number of beats to increase
2) number of measures in a cycle (or minutes in cycle)
3) number of cycles between increases
that way one could (for example) work on a 25 measure passage (or 3 minutes or a typical 32 bar song)(field 2) at 60 BPM for 10 times (field 3) then increase by 2 BPM (field 1) for another 10 cycles.
that would help immensely.
add ability to count eighth and 16th notes. also, make it able to speak, like one e and a, two e and a
I'm a banjo player and would like to be able to have a metronome that will do the boom chic bounce of Bluegrass with the bass and mandolin chop. Conventional 4/4 and cut time and 3/4 waltz time would be nice with the accented beat and off beat, as well.
A regular metronome won't get it for differentiating the beat and off beat at speed.
Just had a look at bestdrumtrainer.com and gave it a go. Exactly what I was looking for!
FYI, I'm a guitar player using it to practice my tremolo. (In that regard, the more beats ar possible, the better)
Thanks for all your excellent work! : )
Just look at
It\'s still in testing phase but it works. Just try it!
Yes, automated acceleration possibilities would be awesome.
P.S. Thanks for the best metronomes on the net!
Nice metronome. Tamborine would be a great addition.
Yes! It would be nice, but I'm almost sure, that I'm not going to make it! It's to far complicated to make. But thanks you very much for your suggestion. Maybe I'll think about that in some future music project!
I would like to have the possibilty to grab and move the elements on the reproduction music line
I'd like to see number voices, so I can make it say One two three four One two three four...
A multi track function would be great for the andvanced metronome. so we can make real drum beats with high hats and bass drum and snare. 3-5 tracks i'd be a happy chappy
sorry for my english
In my opinion , the avanced metronome is the best in internet, but i would add a botton for increase the time each x time
I love the advanced metronome, it is by far the best free metronome I have ever used. It's customisable tempo is the best plus. :) My only suggestion is to add triplets or other ways to add that extra flare to the tempo, experimenting with the rests and tempo grows old fast. But like I said, great job!
and yeah 1 more thing you cannot play hi hat and snare or hi hat and another at same time ........... if its possible to put any two things together it would be great ...... this would help because a drummer has 4 things that he uses and 2 of the things are used frequently ....... so that all
i think putting cymbals would help it so much ..............
thats all .....
HI, I SUGGEST TO IMPROVE THE METRONOME BY ADDING 5/4, 7/8 and others... 4/4 is not the only one!
Ciao, io suggerirei di aggiungere dei tempi nuovi, come il 5/4, il 7/8, ecc... il 4/4 non è l'unico!
it would be nice to have two sound simoultaniously like two tracks metronome .
One for the basic beat and the other for accents.
But anyway its a great tool for practice. Thank you!
Sorry for my bad english:
addition to cycles in brackets (1-2,10): repeat 1 and 2 to 10 times, including loops that enclose them: ((1-2,10) + (2-3-2-1,3), 4) as for loops and nesting in programming.
Sorry for my bad english, it is a very good instrument.
- I would suggest you the option to insert symbols in the middle of the other symbols (or drag and drop), not just in the queue.
- sequences to be repeated n times in brackets, eg: (1-2,6).
- if you could find a way to use the lengths of notes and pauses, you could also use it for music theory (solfeggio).
can you make a metronome that has consecutive beat pairs, mainly two and then three beats (=5 for simplicity) per measure, i.e., 1-2-1-2-3-1-2-1-2-3 ... in other words, this would work for Bartok's Mikrocosmos, where 5 beats = 80 -or 400bpm, but I'd rather have 160bp-240bpm-160bpm-240bpm... than 400 bpm...if you can...
I was wondering if you could add more instruments. Something similar to the list that electric pianos or keyboards use.
Hea Sir, how about duplets, quadruplets, quintuplets, sextuplets, septuplets - would be nice in a preset..
Thanks for your post.
Maybe it could be nice to have time signatures, but
one user would like to have bell for first beat and another one prefers synth sound. The same with another beats in bar.
Besides you can easily write your pattern and save it (it takes you about 20 seconds with edit/save button). So if you save your patterns once than you will have them in your "favorites" tab.
It would be awesome if you have time signatures that you can just click on instead of having to write it out
Sorry, number 4, thats what i meant... put a link :)
Thanks for the fast response
Thank you for your message. This is a real pleasure for me :)
And now, my answers:
1. I think it's possible. I thinking about that how to make it, because I don't want to create another midi studio :) But I have already some idea. I also have to go to some music store to try this Boss DB-90
2. Second line? At the moment I don't think so... But I will let you know if this going to change.
3. Icons - Yes! This was my first thought a year ago. I have to finally create that. But you know. This is not commercial product so it always takes some time to make each improvement. But I'm going to make it soon.
4. And final one. I don't really know how you could put this site on yours. At the moment there is no such possibility. But it would be really nice if you could put a link to (advanced.)BestMetronome.com
Thanks and regards.
I knew I'd forget something...
Can I put your web site on my web site for my students??
I'm a Jazz Guitarist from Australia. Excuse the pun, (i'm quite serious) this is the best online metronome I've managed to find. Thanks for making it available!
I have a few suggestions...
1. Is it possible to add the ability to add triplets, semi-quavers etc without using rests? kinda like a Boss DB-90? I dont know what it would take from a programing point of view so feel free to say no :)
2. Metric Modulation builds great rhythm skills. Can you add a second line so that we can have multiple time signatures simultaneously? They could both be there all the time, with the second one muted by default?? It may require adding the ability to choose a time signature for each line?
3. Can you use something other than numbers for the different sounds?? Letters or maybe even icons of the sound? Every time I start to input a new line, I see the numbers and my brain wants to explode because its thinking of beat numbers!!
Thank you lou_in_nys for your suggestion. It's quite interesting.
I'll add your suggested features to "wish list" :)
Now, I can say that it can be quite difficult from "technical" point of view.
But I'll surely think about that. And once again thanks for your feedback.
Just started using the Advanced Metronome and I'm quite impressed with it's features. I'm a percussionist and will use the metronome during hand/wrist warm-up excercises and while practicing drum rudiments. It would be helpful to have a feature that would allow the user to pre-program or set the incremental acceleration and deceleration of the tempo (BPM) by providing him/her with a set of screen prompts to enter the desired starting tempo, the desired number of steps of acceleration and deceleration for the exercise, the desired incremental change (+/-) in tempo (in BPM) for each step, and the duration (in 10 or 15 second increments) at each step of tempo change. Also, an option to loop back or repeat the pre-programmed tempo would add to the value of this feature. Thanks for a great practice tool!
And one more thing. I know that setting 550 BPM and clicking 50 times can be boring but you can still enter the value manually with your keyboard ;).
Ok, thanks for that report.
I'll try to fix that but it's some kind of technical issue. And like I said before, just after Easter I'm going to fix a couple of bugs and add new features. So be patient please :)
By the way, nice to hear that ;)
