Welcome to the new home for MetronomeBot, the free, talking, clicking, and subdividing metronome. MetronomeBot functioned for many years as a fun, interactive, Flash-based metronome, but it had to be adjusted because Flash will soon be gone. MetronomeBot now consists of a large, comprehensive, well-organized group of Youtube click tracks that function exactly like any other metronome and can be played on all devices including desktop, tablets, iPhones, or any other smart phone that can play Youtube videos.
These metronomes repeatedly produce the same sound at a steady tempo, just like the metronomes that have been used for over 200 years.
Basic online metronome - has a woodblock-like sound that is easy to hear while practicing.
Sleigh bell metronome - instead of a woodblock sound, the beat is played by sleigh bells, which is great for practicing holiday music.
They feature MetronomeBot repeatedly counting the beat numbers in patterns of two, three, and four. Talking metronomes are particularly helpful for beginner students or musicians who have not practiced much with a metronome.
Talking metronome in two - counts “one-two”
Talking metronome in three - counts “one-two-three”
Talking metronome in four - counts “one-two-three-four”
These metronomes subdivide the beat into smaller, equal sections, with a high click on the beat, and lower clicks on the subdivisions.
Duple subdivision metronome - subdivides the beat into two equal parts. It can be used in many ways, most commonly for practicing eighth notes in 2/4, 3/4, or 4/4 time signatures.
Triple subdivision metronome - subdivides the beat into three equal parts. It can be used for practicing eighth notes in 3/8 or 6/8 time, or triplets in 2/4, 3/4, or 4/4 time signatures.
Quadruple subdivision metronome - subdivides the beat into four equal parts. It is great for practicing rhythms with any combination of sixteenth notes.
These metronomes can be used for practicing in specific time signatures when you want to have the metronome indicate the downbeat of each measure. They feature a higher pitched woodblock sound on the downbeat, followed by lower sounds on the other beats.
Meter metronome in two - can be used for time signatures of 2/4, 6/8, 2/2 (cut time), or anything else with two beats per measure.
Meter metronome in three - can be used for time signatures of 3/4, 3/8, 9/8, 3/2, or anything else with three beats per measure.
Meter metronome in four - can be used for time signatures of 4/4, 4/8, 12/8, 4/2, or anything else with four beats per measure.
