The Accelerating Metronome

Software for the practicing musician


ALERT: new version 1.9.1 now supports Windows 7/Vista/2000/XP

However, some Vista and 7 computers have trouble with sound-related applications. Therefore, Please download and try the TRIAL version before buying the Full version.


The Accelerating Metronome alleviates the tedium of having to manually adjust the tempo setting while practicing to a metronome. The user specifies the Start Tempo and the End Tempo, and the Duration of the acceleration period. The Accelerating Metronome smoothly and automatically changes tempo according to the user’s input. The on-screen controls are very simple to use; most functions can also be triggered by the keys on your computer keyboard (hotkeys). The metronome can also provide a constant tempo, like a traditional metronome.

Features:
  • tempo range from 40bpm to 400bpm
  • acceleration duration range from 1 minute to 60 minutes
  • 4 selectable beep tones
  • “reverse” button to switch acceleration direction
  • “hotkey” control (from computer keyboard) for most functions including TAP TEMPO
  • on-screen help for hotkeys
  • “pause” button to take a break partway through practice session
  • “pause tempo” button to temporarily freeze acceleration
  • save and load settings in user-specified files
  • most recently used settings are automatically saved and reloaded on next program startup
  • 4 switchable background colours (black, red, yellow, white)
  • constant tempo mode
  • volume control
