Metronome

Tick tick tick. Been wanting to play my piano again but sadly many of the pieces I know have suffered from my insatiable tendency to speed them up to an insane pace, which I can no longer sustain. My fingers want to go fast and can’t seem to slow down, at least not at a steady rate. So, like any good student, I need something to click at me and make me hold the pace. Here’s the free apps I’ve found to help with that. Full reviews of all of these coming next week.

Metronome – reloaded

Maybe you miss that triangle metronome your teacher had sitting on her piano. This is the app for you. Looking like a traditional metronome it does a bit more than the basics and can split up the beat in virtually any way you want (beats per measure and notes per measure).

Metronome!

Easy to change your beats per minute, tells you what that rate is called (Largo, Andante, Prestissimo, etc) and will let you mark the beat in 1/4, 2/4, 3/4 and 4/4 time. Basic app but solid.

Metronome

Called the same as the app above it looks the same too but with a few less options in splitting the beat. If you want basic this is it.

Flash Metronome

flashy. If you want something that is a visual cue this is the app for you. I don’t know that I’ll like this, I’m used to the auditory signal and suspect that flashes will make me look rather than focusing on the beat and what I’m playing but we’ll see.

Kick Boom Metronome

Want to get funky? This app gives you lots of choices for sound. Maybe you think Beethoven is really missing a good bass beat, no problem… this is the app for that!
