Metronome Plus is an online music program, which also performs the same function as a metronome, enabling aspiring musicians to create a metronome-like beat and learn how to play it quickly and easily. Unlike other software programs that have to be loaded onto the computer and used, this one is fairly easy to download and install. It is a relatively inexpensive program that covers all the basics - such as pitch/tone/time/slider controls, tempo/load/save options, and the ability to preview played tracks - for beginners. The program has a wide range of settings available, allowing users to change the beat's tempo and beat type as they progress, while special changes made on these key settings can also be stored as programs and saved later. With this software, a new artist can start making some money by selling beats generated from their computer, as soon as the initial costs are covered.
This metronome plus version of the Windows program also allows the user to load more than one custom sounds onto a single beat. The tempo and type of sound can be chosen separately, and the program will determine what rhythm type is suitable. For instance, a beginner beat can feature a piano roll with bass drum, hi hat, cymbals, and other percussion instruments. A more advanced custom sound set can feature kick drums, snare drums, and even hit percussion. Using this metronome plus option, the programmer can also add bass lines and hi hats to the main rhythm part, as well as adding special effects, like hit-crack or "sniff" technology on a particular rhythm.
This free software is also useful for creating demos for use in other applications. The metronome can be used with other programs such as Pro Tools, Cubase, Digital Performer, Sonar, Reason, and more. If you're looking to make some hip hop beats, then this free software is a great place to start. And if you're a piano beginner, you'll be able to play along and experiment with your metronome's tempo and type of sound, as well as exploring other musical options.
