Programmable metronome iPhone?

Post by emeraldvalley » Fri Apr 26, 2019 10:13 pm

Is there any app where I can have the metronome begin at a certain tempo (70bpm )for e.g. 20 measures, then accelerando over 4 measures to a different fixed tempo (e.g 85bpm ) and subsequent decelerandos/accelerandos and other fixed tempos over the course of a precise number of measures ? I am working on a concerto piece and want to practice entire movements/sections at the intended tempos. ?
Thank you. Ray

There are a couple of apps like that, although I don't know if they are for the iPhone; go to your App Store. Otherwise, if you have any DAW software, you can create that very map in something like Logic or even Garage Band or the other free sequencing programs available.

Pro Metronome, if you are looking for something for an Apple product. It is a free App for the iPad and iPhone but you have to pay for the upgrade for practice mode to do what you are looking for - not expensive. It’s the only metronome I use and I like it.

I downloaded "The Metronome by Soundbrenner" for my iPhone. It is free and very easy to use. For a new learner like me, I find it very useful. It has forced me to keep my tempo when I try to go too fast, forces me to keep up when I fall behind, and I use it to improve speed for scales, arpeggios, and short pieces I can play well.
