App: tempo changes#7

It would be awesome to program tempo changes. Ideally there would be 3 ways to trigger a change: 1) number of bars expired 2) time expired or 3) manual switch (e.g. Bluetooth foot pedal). Once the tempo changes, it could impact the BPM/time signature/etc. and you set up as many sections of each metronome preset as you want.

From another thread “
Implement the ability to set tempo and metre changes inside of the create a song feature (example: 120bpm 4/4 for 32 bars, 5/4 for 16 bars, 100bpm 5/4 for 16 bars)

This would be incredibly helpful for songs with complex structures or multiple movements.

Additionally, being able to accept metre changes when synced to a DAW would be very helpful.

The ‘multiple movements’ idea is perfect. Would add so much versatility to the watch.

That looks absolutely awesome!

Would there be a “x number of repeats” for a selectable section? For example if your riff went over a bar of 5/8 and a bar of 7/8, could you program that into one section, and if not is there functionality to have the 5 and the 7 alternating x number of times? Is that what the “song modifier” section is for?

Hell yeah this is exactly what I would be looking for/was suggesting.
One of my songs has like 7 time changes over the 9 minutes and this would make it possible.

For the Dream Theater-esque songs with lots and lots of changes in quick succession it’d be a bitch to program, but for the stuff I do, this definitely is promising! Looking good so far :D Awesome!

This looks great - it would be awesome if we were able to name song sections. Not just “Song Section 1, 2, etc” but to label “verse, prechorus, bridge”, and to be able to start the song from one of those sections as well, instead of just the beginning of the song.

These are some great ideas :) Thanks for all the input so far

What about looking at a section in terms of compound time signatures. Meaning play (three times 6/8 and a fourth bar of 7/8) and repeat that 8 times would make a lot of new events for one single beat in odd-ness right. When u cycle between several times in one riff or verse line or something, right?

I am really stoked that it’ll get worked on.

Also an idea for having an option for a quick double beat when u enter a new section maybe? Kind of feelable markers, if u will.

In the past we had the idea to allow users who own a wearable to define a special LED color for each section - I actually forgor about that when I made the design and might add that back in. Probably a double vibration would be confusing as an indicator and get you out of rhythm but in general the idea to give an indicator is good.

I didn’t quite understand the first half of your message. You mean that it would be helpful if you can group sections and then repeat the sections, e.g. 3x 6/8 and 1x 7/8 forms a group, and then you can loop this rather than having to re-add this pattern many times?
