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.

Seems to be a nice metronome. So far it has done what I wanted it for, I admit I use it in a very plain mode; however, the other features are quite nice. Speed training in the free version as well as setting up many rhythm patterns. The Pro (pay -$5.99) has features I've never thought of for a metronome. If you need a metronome give this one a try. I did and it is the one I am still using on tablet, smartphone, and Chromebook. It works as described. (Not enough ads to bother me!)

This app is easy to use (I'm 66 and not particularly tech savvy). I use Metronome Beats to help me reduce the gait problems I have due to Parkinson's. The exercise requires increasing and decreasing the rate by 10 every 60 seconds between specified parameters, as well as changing the number of beats per measure periodically. Both of these options are available to create an individualized program that can be repeated as needed. I love this app!

I'm just using the most basic functions of the app, to keep track of one of my PT exercises, that requires me to hold each rep for 5 seconds. I set the bpm to 60, set 8 beats to the bar, and put the emphasis on 3 consecutive beats. Presto! Now I have an auditory cue for a 5-second hold and a 3-second rest. Works perfectly, and it was very easy to set up.

What's new

We have made it easier to create new drum Presets and add them to Setlists and Songs. We have also fixed a bug with the tempo trainer settings in drum mode.
