Author's Description: Metronome is, you guessed it, a program that simulates a metronome to indicate the beat of a rythm, to assist in playing music. This one can do much more than a "real" metronome though: not only is it ajustable in speed, it can play beats with emphasis, and is therefore suitable for playing alternative rythms such as 7/8, and many rythms found in Irish and east-European music.

Metronome is a simple command line program, and has options for
changing the speed, rythm and emphasis arbitrarily. The sound of the 'beat' can be changed by providing your own wave file with your favourite drum sound (anyone have a good bodhran sample for me?).

Metronome has only been tested for linux. Binaries are provided for win32 (compiled with allegro-4.0.3 and mingw32 crosscompiler), but are untested. Compilation for other platforms supported by allegro should be a piece of cake.

If you have any remarks/suggestions/bugs to report, please do not hesitate to send me mail at hein@icce.rug.nl. I'm especially interested to hear reports on the win32 binaries.

  • 8Cool, I've been thinking about doing my own metro, but I'm working on my other project. Make an GUI and I give it 5.
