    Does anybody use a good one?

    I googled and none of the results were from clearly (to me) reputable sites, let alone good, versatile products. I use a smartphone app that has great features but would like to streamline everything into PC. One with features like speed up tempo or accent different beats, etc would be great. Free or charge, okay.

    How does one purchase apps on Windows computers nowadays? Is there an app store? Every app has reviews right?

    I don't even know. It's definitely not as cut and dried and as clearly safe as getting an app from the android store on my phone. I guess I'll be sticking with that or a stand alone unit of some sort as was recommended to me in DB forum.... hard to use a smartphone app without the inherent distractions of having a smartphone next to you when you're practicing!
  5. Do you have a DAW that you use regularly? Most of them have pretty good metronomes built-in. I use the metronome in Reaper all the time (mostly for recording, but sometimes for practice).

    Dang, I have Reaper but I only use ithe for looping, slowing down and recording myself playing along to stuff so I hadn't had occasion to think about metronome or click. That'll work for now!

    I'll put in a word for Open Metronome (a branch of the original Weird Metronome).

    It doesn't look like much, but it's very small, available in MIDI or WAV versions, and most flexible if you need odd meters.

    For learning new stuff, I throw it in Guitar Pro 6 and add some drum tracks to it. After a while, I just mute the bass track and play along with the drums. It is a lot better than hearing CLICK, click, click, click, CLICK, click, cli...
