In co-operation with Tony Overwater, Boy Edgar award winning bass player and key player in the European Jazz scene, I have developed the "Odd Metronome" iPhone app. A revolutionary new metronome, allowing you to study contemporary as well as complex ethnic rhythms using an app that is extremely easy to use, and has extremely accurate timing.
The Odd Metronome is the ultimate study companion. Create any rhythmic pattern in any meter with three different sounds (low, medium, high). Just tap the note-values on the screen and the Odd Metronome will build the rhythm, calculate the meter and play it instantly.
The Odd Metronome offers you a wide array of possibilities: from a simple quarter note click to a complicated 47/8 rhythm. It’s up to your creativity. The moving cursor will let you follow the rhythm visually, so you never get lost.
The Odd Metronome offers various Latin, Arabic and metronome rhythms and you can easily create your own patterns. It uses standard rhythmical notation. This will also allow you to construct your rhythms using the popular Long-Short Method which creates rhythms from groups of two or three eight notes.
Three high quality sound samples deliver a low, medium and high beat and give an acoustic feel, making it very comfortable to play with. The Odd Metronome comes with six different sound sets: metronome, cajon, darabuka, drums and tabla, for studying various musical styles.
The design is intuitive and clean with only those options and buttons that you really need, leaving you to do what you intended to do, study your instrument.
