Gives random beats in OS X Mavericks
Completely useless if you are running Mavericks.
I bought this metronome to use when I practice my saxophone because I like to turn the speakers up loud to hear the click. The metronome is very easy to use, and the shortcut key funtions provide quick changes in tempo. It also counts how many measures the metronome has gone through, which is a nice feature. However, it does have its short comings. This metronome does not provide subdivisions of any kind. Douple, triple, and sixteenth subdivisions are pretty standard on all metronomes, but are not present here. This is huge downside. You can simulate subdivisions with the accent beats by doubleing your tempo to have an eigth note feel, but the tempo only goes to 240 which limits the "subdivision" tempo to 120. Pros: Easy to use, Smiple interface, ability to use custom accent beats (great for mixed meter), easy keyboard shortcuts, measure counting, practice timerCons: No subdivisions, 240 tempo limit, slightly low volume (I still have to turn my speaker up pretty high), no odd-meter selectionsMy advice: Save your money. There are better metronomes available for download. If you want to use this metronome, it is available on their website for free. webmetronome.com
great little app
I needed a metronome on the Mac for the odd exercise in my ukulele studies...:) This little app not only does the trick when I want it to without going to the web, it has a tuner! Yes, a tuner that is very handy and works fine with the soprano uke tuning I need before practice. You just have to get the right note, and luckily they are there. Highly recommend - good bargain. The only thing I can say that is the slightest bit negative is that I hardly need the floating window with the huge counter. Would love one window with the features in it, or a good nesting of tuner and metronome vosoble without the huge window part. Oh yes, another plus is the practice session timer! WOW...handy. Thanks!
I picked this up on a whim. Just started playing guitar again after many years of playing and needed a metronome. Much more flexible than a traditional metronome. You can adjust the beats per minute, beats per cycle (need to use the accent beats to take advantage of this), accent beats, and volume. All except the accent beats can easily be changed on the fly using single key keyboard shortcuts. Really an awesome app. If you need a metronome this is fantastic. Much cheaper than a traditional metronome as well. I'm really impressed. I'd love to see a keyboard shortcut to change the accent. That's a minor thing as I'm very keyboard centric.The metronome provides both an audio and visual cue for the beats and the accents (if you have this set). An added feature that seems trivial but can be helpful is the included workout timer.Very simple to use. Very impressed.
I was using metronomeonline.com.....but not anymore. This little App works great, does whatever tempo I want, accents beats. For $0.99? Sold!
