Practise Metronome - Practise Metronome allows you to practise that elusive riff at increasing tempos without losing momentum. It can help you build speed on those tricky runs and arpeggios as well as improving technique and stamina. Set a start Bpm, Number of increments, Number of bars per increment and an End Bpm and Practise Metronome will steadily increase the speed. The variable meter (2 - 16 beats) allows practise in different time signatures. Each beat of the meter can be accented to aid counting and playing complex times and rhythms, for example the Flamenco Compas. Accents can be assigned a different sound to make them more obvious. An ''easy beat'' sound patch enables a simple Drum rhythm to be created. Assign the snare sound to the Accents and choose where you want the snare to be. Plus a Conga beat. A continuous play option allows the Practise Metronome to function as a conventional metronome with it''s speed set by the Start Bpm. A 440 Hz tuning note is also provided. Data entry is via an on screen Jog Wheel, which prevents the need for constant pop-ups from the keyboard. The Jog Wheel is also the Start/Stop control. There are a choice of 10 sounds Agogo, WoodBlock, Hand Claps, Hi Conga, Hi Hat, Lo Conga, Side Stick, Triangle, Bass Drum and Snare which are provided through the Android Media Player via Midi. The Practise Metronome generates Midi as needed. in testing (on HTC Hero) the metronome was very accurate, as this is ultimately under the control of the media player, this may vary with hardware. A lead-in is also provided which can give you 1 to 8 bars of count-in and can be assigned to a different sound so you can be sure when the main sequence has started. When the Practise Metronome is playing, a running indicator is displayed along with the current and previous BPM, allowing you to monitor your progress as your playing improves. From Version 1.06 there is a transport option that displays positional information within a sequence which can be changed in real time so you can skip back to a previous tempo without restarting the whole sequence as well as control over beat volumes and the overall media volume for your device. Contextual help is also available by a long click on any field. Requires Android 1.6 or later and a device with 320x480 screen or better.
