The metronome has been around for eons. Musicians from all ages would be lost without it. Here’s everything you need to know to get up to speed with this timeless tool.

Why use a metronome?

No matter your skill level, the metronome is an essential tool for improving your timing. It helps you speed up or slow down as required, stops you racing ahead or dragging the tempo. The more you practice with it, the more your natural sense of timing will improve.

How to use the Melodics metronome.

Open any lesson, go to performance mode, practice mode, or playground mode. Click the two dots in the top left corner. You can choose different sounds and subdivisions or turn the metronome off altogether. When the metronome is off, you will still hear the count-in.

Find it hard to hear the metronome? Don’t like the sound? Or just need more cowbell?

Choose from 6 different metronome sounds to find one that suits your style. Our expert music team has crafted a bespoke default sound that cuts through the music, allowing you to focus on your timing with clarity.

Don’t forget to crank up the volume using the slider! Finding the right balance is key to hearing everything clearly: the metronome, your own sound, and the backing track.

Want an extra challenge?

Go ahead and turn down those guide notes! Or try turning the metronome off altogether and test your rhythmic skills.

Customise your rhythm.

Having trouble with a complex rhythm? Keeping track of the pulse can be challenging, especially a low tempos. Choose between 1/4, 1/8, and 1/16 subdivisions to help fill the space between beats. Subdivisions provide context to the rhythm to help keep you perfectly in time.

Don't overlook this game-changing feature! Embrace the power of the metronome in Melodics and take your timing to new heights!
