About this app

Benny Greb, well known for his contributions to the drumming education community, shared the approach that he has taken personally to develop his sense of groove and improve his own timing on his instrument in his course “The Art and Science of Groove”. Now with the Gap Click app, everyone can practice his method easily with a simple-to-use app!

Unlike standard metronomes which simply state the time, Gap Click helps you improve your sense of time. Gap Click focuses on improving your ability to keep tempo, become more aware and comfortable with off beat clicks and by that, become bullet proof and accurate with all notes of the subdivision.

GAP CLICK
By scrolling through the numbers of bars and patterns you can quickly configure a “gap” of time in which the metronome drops out. When the “one” comes back around, will your playing still be in time? How long of a gap can you play through and still maintain solid tempo?

MOVING CLICK
Next you can experiment with all kinds of off-beat patterns in the Gap Bar which moves the click from the downbeat position to a different location. Can you still play your instrument and maintain the downbeat internally even when you hear the click sound on an off-beat?

Both the “click” and the “gap” portion supports a variety of different syncopated patterns allowing you the ability to practice in binary or ternary rhythms - with more or less safety net depending on your settings.

Features
• Ability to choose from a variety of different syncopated patterns and # of measures for both the standard "click" as well as the "gap"
• Use the nostalgic click wheel to find the right tempo or tap to set your desired tempo
• Standard quarter-note time signatures: 3/4, 4/4, 5/4, 7/4

Personalize
• See visual feedback for each note or rest that is played
• Accent beat 1 of each measure or turn accents off
• Flash the screen when switching from the "click" to the "gap"
• Find your favorite sound from a variety of click samples hand-picked by Benny

Buy Once, Use Forever
• There are no In-App Purchases - a one time purchase includes all current and future features.

Nice app, been waiting on an android version for a while so thank you! Heres a few critiques (understanding that this app is still in its early stages). I've noticed some frequent pops and glitches in the metronome audio when outside of the app. For some reason, when outside the app while using a BT headset, after a few minutes the tempo fluctuates severely with pops in the audio. this has never happened with any other met for me. Still a fun and reliable app to use when in the app itself!

Thanks for your feedback! Please download the latest version (1.0.1 Build #27) that I just released as this should resolve any audio issues that you experienced previously. Thanks for your patience while I worked through this issue and thank you for supporting Gap Click!

Excellent metronome! Aesthetically pleasing interface and powerful implementation! Some feature suggestions: 1)Tap function calculated based on button press rather than release 2)Complex time signatures (8 and 16 in denominator) 3)Complex groupings (quintuplets, septuplets, 16ths grouped in 5s, 7s, etc.) 4)Type-in tempo. The wheel and +/- are good, but typing with a 10 key (perhaps by tapping the tempo number) would be a welcomed addition.

Super well made and easy to figure out. Great tool for improving tempo control. Only thing missing is the ability to add an accent to every beat. It's really hard to tell the downbeat apart from the subdivisions at faster tempos without this feature.
