I have an old Alesis SR16 drum machine that I use as a fancy metronome. I created metronome patterns for various time signatures, some with a swing feel, and one that is just a 2 4 pocket. When I practice a song with changing time signatures, Ill string patterns together in song mode. I don't use all the features that Alesis offers, but it does what I need. My problem is that I keep forgetting how to program the machine and I have to refamiliarize myself with the owners manual every time I want to create a new pattern or "song." Can anyone recommend an easy to use and relatively low cost software package that will do the same thing? In other words, I just want a fancy metronome.
