Time Guru Metronome App Description

**New lower price!** Guitar Player Magazine says: "This ingenious super metronome was developed by funky-as-hell Sco sideman Avi Bortnick. It will leave out beats randomly to force you to strengthen your own inner time-keeping muscles, and it has other cool features for odd meters, drum machine-style patterns, and more. For the low price of $2.99, this is an awesome learning, grooving, solidifying tool." Strengthen your inner sense of rhythm! Time Guru is the only metronome with the ability to mute its sound at random, in sequenced patterns, or both, so that you can assess whether you tend to rush or drag or loose your place with odd meters. Time Guru can periodically leave you on your own so that you strengthen your own internal sense of time, rather than relying on the constant, rigid, external time keeping of a metronome. It's like training wheels that sometimes come up off the ground. Time Guru also features: -the ability to play in different time signatures or sequences of time signatures -create rhythmic drum-machine like patterns -save presets for tempo, meter, sound and muting- -35 loud sound sets; -Human or robot voice counting in English, Chinese, French, German or Russian - great for teaching! -tap tempo (5 to 300 BPM range) -super accurate, rock-solid timing via a customized audio engine. And of course it can function as a normal metronome. NoTreble.com says: "I love the aesthetic and layout of Time Guru. It’s very simple and elegant. Time Guru also offers ability to set randomness of your subdivisions (great for testing your internal clock)….There is one thing that Time Guru does that I absolutely love, and for which, this app will always live on my iPhone – at the top of the screen, you will see a series of numbers (1-7). When you press a number, it is set first in a sequence and you can choose a subdivision that will then repeat that number of times (or set it to rest that number of times). Sound confusing? It isn’t, because the layout is so simple. Every time you press a new number, it is set next in the sequence and you choose your continue to choose your subdivisions."

  • Step up the time

    By Heantune
    My go to metronome to practice time. Total perfection would be to add ability to increase the tempo by steps eg 10 bpm ever 10 bars
  • Perfect !

    By 2Sircheck
    This metronome app is perfect! If it had the ability to displace the beat, as in move the start of the rhythm to the 3rd sixteen note etc, it would be the end of all other metronomes.
  • Brilliant

    By dave devine
    Deep practice tool, indispensable
  • Great but uses A LOT of juice

    By Gabriel E.
    Excellent time training app. But burns up your battery.
  • Practical and profound

    By Whomakesyourmoney
    Leaving random beats out is by far the best feature here, but everything is great. Can't recommend enough.
  • instructions please

    By doylin jmd
    there does not appear to be a simple explanation anywhere on line on how to use this thing. So its useless and very FRUSTRATING. I was trying to combine repetitive triplet/sixteenth notes and for the life of me... uggghhhh!!!!
  • Favorite metronome

    By Jptown
    This has been a favorite of mine for a while.
  • Independence

    By bug.new
    While there are any number of metronomes on the App Store, the killer feature of this one is the customizable randomization of NOT playing every click, letting it act as a reminder instead of a crutch. Helps greatly in internalization of the best rather than relying on an external pulse.
  • Bang for your 2 bucks

    By marshallwilliams32
    Not the most intuitive interface but once you figure it out you'll have everything you'll ever need. Excellent for tougher sub divisions like 5s and 7s. Never buy another physical metronome!
  • As good as it gets.

    By Drassssssssss
    This metronome application is unbeatable! The interface is extremely simple to use, but it provides a wide array of different tools. This app can be used for anything from a simple metronome, too a more complex time keeping tool to help develop deeper rhythmic concepts. I recommend this app to any musician who is interested in developing their sense of time further.
