[prMac.com] Newport Beach, California - CalamitySoft is proud to announce the release of Tempus Practicus 1.1, a technical update to our hit tempo training app. This new kind of metronome pauses and resumes itself so you can test your time-keeping ability. Tempus Practicus is available today from the iTunes App Store for the price of $1.99 (USD).
Tempo maintenance and ear training are serious, though often over-looked aspects of music making. This simple training tool delivers a powerful tempo-testing experience for aspiring conductors and musicians. Legend has it that a master maestro's conducting skill is so great that he can perfectly maintain a tempo with no assistance for extended periods. He can turn on a metronome and begin conducting at its tempo, then switch off the metronome, conduct 100 measures, turn it back on, and still be conducting in time. Tempus Practicus is modeled after this impressive feat. Tempus will click out the beats like a normal metronome, rest for a number of beats, then resume playing and repeat. You can specify beats per minute, beats per measure, beats to play, and beats to rest.

* Extensive metronome adjustments
