App: tempo & time signature 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/subdivision/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.

Merged Fully Programmable "Click" Tracks & Setlists#82

“I would love the ability to set the watch from quarter notes to eighth to sixteenth in quick succession.

For instance, I’m practicing at 90bpm and want to make practicing short speed bursts in sixteenths for a half measure then go back to quarter notes then eighth notes for half a measure.

I’m currently playing to a click at quarter notes and setting my Core to sixteenths. I would love the ability to program the app to allow me to have frequent timing changes. To allow for a better speed burst practice.”

Merged Ability to change meter in a song without stopping#451
3 months ago

“I wish I could set different metronome settings for different sections of one song, so I could turn my metronome on and sing through a piece without having to stop, change settings, and trying to resume.
If my first five measures are 4/4 but the meter changes, or if a piece has a different time signature per measure, as a lot of 20th century classical music does, it would be more useful to me as a classical musician to be able to go measure by measure and make my settings, on one track, and play the song all the way through with no stopping.”

Yes! I totally support what Florian Simmendinger has said above:

“ From another thread:
This is the only feature that is really needed to make this a must-have device. This is what will make it or break it. Suppose there is a really complex song one is learing or has to play. One needs:

programmable countdown before the song starts;
programmable number of bars;
programmable time signature changes;
programmable tempo changes.
programmable sets of “click” tracks - say, for when one has an upcoming gig and needs to preprogram an entire setlist.
The idea of feeling the rhythm’s pulse rather than hearing it is very appealing, but it has to be a fully programmable rhythm station to become a breakthrough.

This is what musicians care about. We don’t give a rat’s ass about fancy LED colours, iPhone synchs, beats etc. (this is for kids and bedroom musicians who practice the instrument once a week if their mom/wife is pleased with their school grades/salary). We need perfect tempos and time singnatures to play along. Period. Nothing else really matters.
