I've used this metronome for a while now. It sounds great (the last update made the beeps/clicks more acoustic and resonant and it sounds AMAZING) and is easy to use; my only complaints are that you aren't able to implement odd meters very well, which is kinda niche and probably not free on any app, and the visual never lines up with audio for me. I know that it isn't a delay in my speakers or earbuds because videos always work perfectly fine. Everything else is great!

I use the metronome app along with the drummer in my band. I generally like the functioning of the app and find it relatively easy to use. There could be a few improvements (e.g., prompting you that you must explicitly save changes to a setlist rather than having your changes saved automatically). But overall the UI is decent and not that hard to figure out. I do have a real problem with one feature and the support has been truly inferior. Sharing set lists doesn't work. Support was worthless.

Hi Leon, thanks for the feedback! I just tried out sharing setlists and it worked well. I tried creating the link in Android and importing into iOS and Android and both worked. What's your issue? Also for updating songs, there is a prompt. Can you send your steps to me? I'm the CEO of Soundbrenner & happy to take a look.

Used to be a great asset for me as a drummer. All of my band's songs are documented in the app with their tempos which makes it easy to practice. Today I went to add our newest song and I am unable to without paying for the subscription. Very disappointed that an otherwise great app would use such grimy tactics to make a quick buck. I can't even edit existing songs anymore without paying for the subscription. Unfortunately I'll have to find a new app and just keep the tempos in my notes...

Hey there, sorry you don't see the value in our subscription. Somehow we need to make money. A software engineer costs $10,000 USD per month and the app has been in development for 7 years by multiple engineers. We feel it's fair to keep most of the app free but charge for some power user features like having a large library. It's $5/month.

What's new

- New metronome visual effects. We introduced a new feature where users can customize metronome accent marker highlights, also flash the screen or camera light with each beat, or display a beat count while playing the metronome.

- Fixed issue related to metronome sounds in app settings where for some users the metronome sounds couldn’t be enabled.
- Enhanced overall app stability and reliability.
