Editors' Review

+
There's not much weird about this virtual metronome; in fact, we really like its flexibility. An attactive design scheme is not Weird Metronome's forte. While many competing programs resemble their real-world counterparts, this one follows the standard gray-box motif with drop-down menus. You can choose from a straight metronome beat or a specific number of beats per measure, but it's the custom option we especially dig. This feature allows you to set up your own specific scheme with a huge load of percussion instruments, of which nine can be used at once. After you've come up with a beat pattern you really like, you can easily save it for quick access later. A handy slider also makes it easy to set the beats per minute from four to 1,000. Finally, you can toggle the visual display on or off. This freebie is unlikely to disappoint drummers and other musicians seeking a timing watchdog.

"hijacked my homepage and search engine, STAY AWAY"

September 08, 2013  |  By slade707

 |  Version: Weird Metronome 1.4

Pros

it challenged my problem solving abilities when I tried to remove the spyware it included with the "full install"

Cons

Installing this program had the side effect of hijacking my web browser, changing my homepage, and changing my default search engine.
I had to run two separate av programs (avast and malwarebytes) to fix the damage

"Funny options, but failed to work"

November 07, 2010  |  By dudus2

 |  Version: Weird Metronome 1.4

Pros

A variety of sounds and speeds.

Cons

Not keeping speed.
The first and the second beats delay everything and you can't even stand in how out timed it is. I don't know if it's midi problems, but other midi programs or metronomes on my computer work perfectly and synced.

Summary

use a reliable metronome.

"Great!"

March 25, 2008  |  By binary

 |  Version: Weird Metronome 1.4

Pros

It's the first one I've found with the volume being fully adjustable. This is cool when I have my monitor speakers cranked up and I don't want to be blown out of the studio with the metronome click. I love the tempo versatility and the ability to assign different sounds and volumes for each beat. Good Stuff!

"Liked when it worked!"

October 14, 2007  |  By metchason

 |  Version: Weird Metronome 1.4

Pros

It started with a nice tone and had a down beat to boot. I only played with the controls a little (not enough to really get to know them)and it seemed to be really self explanatory. I like the whole presentation.

Cons

After the first use it would not work on my millenium gateway machine. So,I was kind of let down.
