    I have been looking for a powerful metronome app, what are your favorite free or paid, ions or Android metronome apps. I am specifically looking for apps that give you the option to change an individual note within a measure from quarter to eighth notes as opposed to all the notes being the same. A nice variety of sounds would be nice as opposed to just click click click click.

    Thank you in advance

    Metronomics HD… I use it on my Mac, iPad and iPhone. Very powerful. Lots of notes from whole & dotted halfs down to 1/16s and quarter & eighth triplets. Different sounds for different notes, vary volumes, drop notes, bars, etc.

    Not ties to company, just satisfied user.

    I haven't tried a lot, but I like the Frozen Ape metronome. It has a lot of standard features. Cheap.

    Time Guru is really nice - very flexible - allows you to specify different time signatures in any order you like

    For Android, I use ProMetronome. The free edition does the most common simple and compound time signatures and tap tempo, but the upgrade includes fully configurable polyrhythms with graphical 'concentric rings' display, subdivisions from 1/1 to 4/32 including various triplet combinations and any time signature you like from 1/1 to 16/32. Each beat can be accented at one of 3 levels or 'off'. Tempo seems rock solid - at least I've not experienced any issues, unlike some that seem to be at the mercy of other stuff going on with your device. The price for the full version is only a couple of bucks.

  6. Polynome is definitely worth checking out. It seems to be geared more towards drummers, but it’s got a lot of customization features and playlist creation support.
