What customers are saying:***** "THE metronome for serious classical musicians"***** "The program doesn't choke on unusual time signatures- you can make them yourself and quickly configure any accent pattern you want."***** "For what it does, it is the cleanest , fastest and most logical one I've found. It's worth the money if you need the functionality it provides."***** "This is a GREAT app for any serious classical musician, and I will continue to encourage all my IOS colleagues and students to buy it."***** "Well worth the small amount charged for this thoughtful and well-engineered tool. I've never seen anything as good for any price."Most complete metronome available on iOS: Enter the measures of your own musical pieces Specify any time signature, even per measure if you want Specify where the accents are (e.g. 7/8 as 3+2+2 or 2+2+3) Specify any tempo, even per measure if you want Specify a tempo by tapping it ("tap tempo") Select and play a set of measures to rehearse difficult parts Slow down or speed up the metronome to rehearse more effectively Configure the pitch of the metronome to best match your instrument Maintain a list of your musical pieces and share them with othersMusician's Metronome is a high precision, advanced, yet easy to use metronome. In its simplest form, it plays rhythms just like any other metronome. You can, however, also play complex rhythms very easily. It gets even better when your music has many different time signatures and tempos. The user interface of this metronome is designed in such a way that you can enter music very rapidly: after setting up the preset buttons, a single tap will add a new measure with the desired time signature.To rehearse a specific part of your music, you can select it. When you hit the play button, only the selected measures will be played. If you have enabled auto-repeat in the settings, the part will play over and over again, so that you can thoroughly train it. You can even set it to play slower or faster.You can set up the time signature preset buttons for every piece. Using the two wheels, you can choose the number of beats in the measure, and the beat duration. Using the buttons at the bottom of the screen, you can indicate the accents in the measure. The numbers on the buttons indicate how the measure should be counted. These accents play with a different sound, so that you can actually hear the difference between 7/8 that is played as 2+2+3 and one that is played as 3+2+2.You can have many pieces in your library. You can edit the details, add new pieces, delete pieces. You can even share them with fellow musicians: by clicking the action button, you can send the selected piece by e-mail.When you receive a piece by e-mail, just click the attachment to open it, and import it. It will be added to your library so that you can use it in any way you like.Using the settings window, you can configure how many measures must be counted of before the actual playing starts. Also, you can configure the metronome sounds, whether playing should auto-repeat, and how much detail you want to see in the measures.Use the built-in help function to learn how everything works.Please note: depending on your settings, this app may collect anonymous usage statistics. The sole purpose of this is to better understand how the app is used, so that we can further improve it in the future.

Version: Musician's Metronome 2.1
Ability to tap tempi Ability to assign any not value a tempo (not just quarter notes as before) Ability to globally speed up or slow down, keeping all relationships intact
NONE- This app was great before, and this developer is serious about taking feedback seriously! I don't really know what he could do it improve it at this point.
Everything in my earlier review of this app applies, plus all the good stuff that was added in version 3.0. Any classical musician who has to learn complicated contemporary music (or even Stravinsky) should not hesitate to buy this app. Out of some 200 apps on my devices, this is the one I would not want to part with- it is the most useful in my work. BTW- It looks even better on an iPad. Get this app, use it to appreciate it, and help spread the word to your colleagues. This is insanely great software.

Version: Musician's Metronome 1.0.1
Ease of use Real Music interface! Speed of setup- very intuitive Easy to create obscure beat and accent patterns Ability to save passages (or whole movements) and even share them Ability to loop difficult spots for intense practice Easy to add, delete, change bars and beat patterns Easy to customize beat pitches and intensities
No Tap feature No ability to accelerate or slow down within a passage
This is the best metronome out there by far for musicians working on contemporary pieces with a lot of mixed meter. It is super-easy to use, and instantly understandable by anyone who truly reads music. It is buried deep into the App store, and I don't think many will find it unless they read reviews like this one. I make all my advanced students buy it, and use it myself- a lot (I play in a symphony orchestra). The "cons" listed are also listed on the developers' site as things he is going to add, and I can't wait. This is one of the most valuable apps any serious musician or conservatory student can own, along with a recorder and tuner.
