SpeakBeat Metronome

For Apple iPhone & iPad

The metronome that talks to you! - it uses a spoken count instead of ticks or clicks that makes it easy to follow along and keep track of where you are in the bar. Choose a voice, a time signature and a tempo, and you're ready to go. You can add sub-beats, a count-in and more! This app is great for music teachers, choreographers, dance instructors and cheerleading coaches by saving your voice from the repetitive and exhausting "five, six, seven, eight"! SpeakBeat Metronome will allow you to focus on the material, rather than keeping the beat.

There are plenty of metronomes on the app store, and for replacing a traditional metronome, these are fine - clicking and ticking away at the edge of your attention. but when it's critical that you or your students know where you are in the bar, counting out loud is more effective, especially for more complex meters and rhythms. Music teachers, composers, dance coaches, choreographers and cheerleaders all know: counting out loud is the way to go.

But when practicing by yourself, counting time can be very difficult when concentrating on notes or steps. Having a teacher or coach count time for you is fine, but when they need to call instructions or directions, they need to stop counting, so their instructions need to be in time as well. Plus, it's boring and exhausting to count "one two three four" all day long.

So why not let your phone do the counting for you? Introducing SpeakBeat Metronome: the vocal metronome! Fully customizable and programmable, with a many voices to choose from, SpeakBeat Metronome will count "5-6-7-8" all day long, never getting tired and never missing a beat.

SpeakBeat Metronome allows you to choose one of a set of studio-recorded high quality voices; choose any tempo using a dial or by tapping out a beats-per-minute; set a time signature, sub-beats, starting delay, and a fully-customizable count-in, either counting up ("five-six-seven-eight") or down ("three-two-one").

The SpeakBeat Metronome idea was created when a professional music teacher was in a practise session with his students. The teacher knew that rhythm and timing was one of the most important aspects of playing music, however, students only had click tracks from free metronome apps at home. He thought there must be a better way. The idea came to him to use a button on a mobile device to simply set the time signature, tap tempo, and hear the number of bars in time spoken by a counting metronome 1 2 3 4. The app was the first metronome with voice counting also called a voice metronome or a metronome that counts. SpeakBeat was created to be the most accurate metronome on the iOS app store. It can help you when you read sheet music, practice custom rhythms, or just need to listen to metronome beats (yes it still has a click track).

The number of bars are adjustable to help you play music. Although SpeakBeat is a free metronome app, it packs in the features of a pro metronome (tempo advance is a future planned feature). With the iOS only download, you will be able to keep both rhythm and time turning you from a student to a pro. Although the free version is awesome, app purchases can be used to unlock the pro version.
