About this app

A free interactive metronome app, Speed Trainer, and Drum Machine designed by musicians. With over 10 million downloads Metronome Beats is used worldwide for solo and group music practice, teaching and live concerts. It is also used to keep a steady tempo during running, golf putting practice, dancing, and many other activities.

Designed with ease of use in mind, Metronome Beats has controls for easily increasing and decreasing the tempo in small increments by one touch of the screen. The visual beat indicators help you to keep track of where you are in the bar and enable you to mute the metronome whilst still monitoring the tempo visually. You can also create your own custom sound settings or simply change the pitch to make Metronome Beats easier to hear over your instrument.

Only need a few bars lead in? Use the timer function to stop Metronome Beats when you want. You can also use Metronome Beats at the same time as other apps, allowing you to read sheet music off your Tablet whilst playing the metronome to check your tempo.

On larger devices the Tablet specific layout gives you access to all of the Metronome Beats features on one handy screen.

Features include:
- Separate layout for larger devices
- Drum Machine
- Speed Trainer
- Select any tempo from 1 to 900 beats per minute.
- Don’t know how many beats per minute you need? Then use the tap tempo button to select a tempo.
- Option to keep the metronome playing when you exit allowing you to use it with other apps
- Set a timer to stop the metronome after a certain number of bars
- Displays Italian tempo markings – handy if you’re not sure how fast Vivace should be.
- Subdivide the beat with up to 16 clicks per beat – so you can practice the timing of your triplets.
- Choose whether to accent the first beat of the bar.
- Visual beat indication - mute the sound and use the visualisations to follow the beat.
- Your settings are saved automatically on exit – so you can carry on where you left off next time you play.
- Change the pitch of the sound to make the metronome easier to hear over your instrument.

Check out Metronome Beats Pro for even more features, including a “live” mode where you can create and play set lists.

Metronome Beats is supported by adverts, which is why it requires the “INTERNET” and “ACCESS NETWORK STATE” permissions.

Excellent app. The beat making is great. Tapping the save icon should default to the active beat's saved name, not a new file name. I'd love to have more cymbals and toms and a snare-off snare. (After this, my app quit working in the car. Only plays while Spotify is also playing. Dev has reached out to help with the issues, that's a plus.)

Hi, thanks for your feedback. When in edit mode you can swipe left or right to remove a section from a song. Sorry if you have had problems using the app in your car - it would be great if you could email us at with more details and we will see if we can help.

I like the functions. Some audio glitches make playing with a sound system difficult but I may have fixed through settings. For the temp trainer, the mute function doesn't work great because you can't control it in tandem with tempo increase, so it just mutes at random points in your riff. I want it to increase tempo every 18 bars, and mute 11-14, then jump back, then do the same after the increase.

I just got this app and knew nothing about how to use it. I am using it for 4 beats on a specific breathing pattern. I was able to figure it out and love it. It offers so much. Even volume control. Can hardly wait for time to play with it. Might be several months. I give it a 5 because it seems to be so generous with all of its uses. I may even take up a few drumming beats. Thanks!!!
