Electronic Metronome

Postby Marcus » Sun Apr 07, 2013 3:38 pm

I am starting to want to play with a clave metronoms in addition to a regular down beat metronone. I still have a flip phone and do not like to lug the laptop around house. Essentually a low tech guy right now. There are some electronic metronomes on the market and was curious of the reviews from various forum members. Not yet able to tap my foot to a clave pattern and play at the same time but that is where I would like to go. Hoping that other members have some suggestions for specific brands. The Korg KDM2 appears to be a contender.

thx, marcus

BOSS DB-60 is my choice. Had it for about 6+ years and have no complaints whatsoever.

Hey Derbeno,

That looks pretty darn good. They do not say much about the programming like if you can program the short and long bell in 12/8. Have you been able to program other rhythms with ease?

thx, Marcus

It comes with son 3:2 and 2:3 preprogramed. I don't think you can do a lot of self programing. For that you need a smart phone apps such as Tempo.
Does your phone play mp3?
Another suggestion is to program loops at different tempo with Percussionstudio or Fruityloops and save mp3 to your phone
