Weird Metronome

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
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.

Developer's Description

Weird Metronome is a metronome program that uses the computer's MIDI hardware (sound card) to play its sound. This program is very configurable. You can define any length measure up to 1,000 beats with any beat emphasis you choose. More than fifty percussion instruments are available, and up to nine can be used at a time in a given measure definition. You can save and load your settings under as many presets as you like. All this and more in a tiny little download of only 18K.
