    I've found that useful metronome on -line:
    you can set the bpm, the meter and, this is useful, the number of measures during wich the metronome is on and off, leaving you playing in silence and allowing you to control your tempo accuracy.
    I hope this helps someone. For me It's a great tool (and is free...)

    Hello everyone,

    Just yesterday I have released android app for musicians which is the metronome with loud and silent bars functionalities, as the only one in the market.

    Since, You are practicing musicians I want You to ask for Your comments about rhythm accuracy (which I know is essential in music - been there done that as a bassman, hence the name ;) ), tone of the ticks and functionalities You would like to see. You are the guys for which I designed this tool so I hope You enjoy it and help me making it the best drum trainer Google Play have ever seen :) It's based on the site You have mentioned above.

    I hope that moderators will not consider this as a spam/ad or anything like that.

    App can be found here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.klangstudios.drumtrain

    I'm looking forward to hearing You from :)

    hello Klang,
    I download the app. Interesting.
    Do I suggest one thing? It's better, at least for me, to have a "neutral" sound to beat the time, not a pitch sound. I mean a woodblock or a bongo or similar (something like the old mechanic metronomes). The beeps that you use are pitch defined (G and Eb) and they annoy when a musician plays a scale, an arpeggio or other tonal patterns.
    My opinion.

    Hey, Tito!

    Thanks for a sugesstion. At first when I thought about this I was thinking about drummers and later I came up with idea that other musicians can use it as well. I will look to the code to see what I can do.

    Also thanks for support!
