Description

The metronome app you have been waiting for.



We didn’t like existing metronome apps very much. So we made a better one. The Metronome by Soundbrenner is designed to be a professional tool to help all musicians to play with perfect precision. A powerful metronome app for everyone, from beginner to professional, regardless of instrument choice The Metronome by Soundbrenner works great for daily practice, live performances or in the recording studio.

The Metronome by Soundbrenner is fully packed with pro features, all free of use.

One of our pro features is the ability to tap your own tempo. You can utilize it by hitting our tap button, keep the beat and your bpm will set, ready to start playing. Tip tap top!

Tapping out? Count in! We added a count feature to give you the option to get familiar with the set bpm. Enable it in the settings, select your tempo and start playing. Your count in will work automatically and your bpm will be tighter than ever.

Practice makes perfect. That is why we have added the setlists feature in for you to repeat certain songs multiple times until you get the right bpm and rhythm. Create a setlist, pick your songs and load the set! Not practicing? No problem. Our setlists can be used in every situation; playing live, recording in a studio or just jamming out with other musicians.

Practicing with your band? Or multiple musicians? That's no problem with our advanced pro sync feature: Multiplayer Synchronisation. Sync up to five musicians to play seamlessly to the perfect bpm. With Multiplayer Synchronisation practicing is made easy, everyone can focus on playing music and keeping the right rhythm. Sync up!

Become a better musician by practicing around with subdivisions, time signatures or accents. Pick a time signature, set different subdivisions and choose your accents to customize the way you play music. Get a perfect sound each time you practice and become the best.

Behind all of these pro features is a sleek and beautiful interface, aimed to be easy to use for every musician. You can completely customize it, with different themes and sounds. Pick a sound for the right beat, and select theme to set the right mood.

Highlights and features:
- Precise metronome packed into an intuitive, beautiful interface.
- Change your time signature, choose a subdivision and set accents.
- Powerful customization. Choose from different click sounds and enable Camera LED/Screen flash.
- World class setlist management. Save your own rhythms and load them in the Metronome.
- Sync up to five Metronomes with our Multiplayer Synchronisation feature.
- Dark and light theme designed to be functional. You have the power of choice.

The Metronome by Soundbrenner is free without ads, for the best experience possible. At Soundbrenner we believe every musician, from beginner to professional, should practice their music and rhythm in the best way possible. That's why we decided to make our app free to download. Set the bpm, sync up, press play and start making music!

What other musicians are saying about The Metronome:
“This is such a beautiful instrument, that it will help you maintain your humbleness and put you on a path of correctness.”
- John “JR” Robinson (The most recorded drummer ever)

“As a progressive musician, I find this very useful while practicing complex time signatures and improvising on the go.“
- Jordan Rudess (Keyboardist from Dream Theater)
