Metronome with midi in and bright light?

Discussion in 'Recording Gear and Equipment [BG]' started by Chaddycakes, Feb 2, 2013.

  1. I'm thinking about a midi setup with a band where the drummer doesn't need a headphone setup. What's your cheapest recommendation? I've heard about some of the high end options like the Laser and the Q-strobe metronomes, but I couldn't even figure out how much they cost.

    Some DAWS let you put the Metronome in a window and make it big.
    Have the drummer use a pad and drum trigger brain so he can tap the tempo to start things off the DAW. And he can watch the on-screen metronome.
    IEM is still the best.
  3. What about iPhone/iPad apps?

    I`ve never heard of anything like this but it sounds like a great idea!
