Just found this, when searching for metronome:

I've always thought that this site, GMC, needed a metronome that could be adjusted more than the one in the lessons. Maybe something for the future? Something that could be modified for several time signatures. And I'd love to have a countdown/stopwatch thing incorporated as well, so one could say: "I'll practice at 120 bpm for 5 minutes, then 5 minutes of 130 bpm" having a countdown to keep time. Would be kinda need.

That was kinda off topic. Nice find, Kris smile.gif

I like http://a.bestmetronome.com/ because it has all those handy shortcuts to quickly enter any speed. And it has a pleasant sound. Not like many others out there where you immediately close the page because the click sound sounds worse than 80's midi music biggrin.gif
Granted, the Google one is also quite accessible.

Once in a while http://bestdrumtrainer.com/tt/ comes in handy as well to test your overall timing stability.

@Cael: I agree that having a more customizable metronome would be a good thing. That's one thing I'm really missing in my own practice as well. Thinking about it now, I'm inclined to write one laugh.gif

I wouldn't know how to write one, so I hope someone else might do it some time smile.gif If you do write one and decide to share it, please incorporate some time/countdown/stopwatch feature biggrin.gif I've yet to see that in any metronome.

Well I'm gonna plug my favorite most customizable polyrhythmic/visual/3d metronome... BounceMetronome. Pretty cheap too. http://bouncemetronome.com/

Still loving the google metronome shout. Thanks Kris will be using this when I quickly need a beat.

Yes that's the one I normally use, but the site was down so that's why I googled!

If you're on Windows 10, there's an app called Asparion Metronome, which I quite like. It's very simple, but for some reason I find it very nice. I'm back to Windows 7 though, so can't use it anymore.

Great discovery, will be recommending this to students for sure. I've used the app 'Tempo' for years as its clean uncluttered design is user friendly and has lots of customisation plus a 'setlist' feature that allows you to setup evolving metronome settings without the need to keep manually changing, i've found this great for 'time feel' practice as you can set it to start muting clicks or changing divisions and time signatures.

Google Play store https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?...tempo&hl=en
