[prMac.com] Rethymno, Greece - Indie developer, Nikolas Konstantakopoulos from Granny's Audio, has announced MetroKit 2, a flexible metronome suitable to practice any instrument. Equipped with speed & rhythm trainers, fully customizable beats and accents, and a new unique feature "Track Mode," it can create from simple exercises to the most demanding progressive rhythmic practice exercises. Supporting custom beat divisions, MetroKit 2 can help even the most demanding musicians to go a step further.
MetroKit 2, is an advanced metronome, with lots of new and extra features. It includes 3 modes, "Simple," "Trainer" and "Track."
Just set a tempo, time signature and practice over it. You can also set a bar limit, that stops MetroKit when it is reached, in order to practice over specific time.
Speed - Practice your speed and rhythm. Set a starting tempo and a goal tempo, and the increase (or decrease) steps
MetroKit includes a Rhythm Trainer, that mutes it after a specific number of bars for a user set number of bars e.g. hearing 3 bars and mute 1.
Train your rhythm stability and perception.
The trainers can work together for more difficult rhythm and speed practicing.
To fully customize your practice, MetroKit introduces a "Track" mode. There, you can add sessions to you overall practice that each one start after the other. For example:
1. Start with a warm up session of a low 90 BPM and simple 4/4 rhythm for 64 bars.
2. Continue with a speed training session to advance the tempo e.g. advance 5 BPM every 4 bars until it reaches 140.
3. Add a rhythm training for 32 bars.
4. Rest for 16 bars at a low tempo practice.
Each session can be a "simple mode" session or a "trainer mode" session.
* The tempo ranges from a very low 30 BPM to a very fast 480
* Time signature can be up to 32 / 32nds with a lot of variations (9/8, 11/16, 7/4 etc.)
* Every beat can have up to 9 subdivisions allowing very complex rhythms
Every beat's subdivisions are independent, meaning on a 4/4 rhythm, the first beat can have 4 subdivisions (16ths) the second one 5 subdivisions, the third 1(just a quarter note) and so on.
* OS X 10.6.6 or later
* 34.4 MB
Pricing and Availability:
MetroKit 2.0.4 is $2.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide through the Mac App Store in the Music category. For any problems with the applications, feature suggestions, collaborations proposals or just to say hi, we are happy to hear from you!
