Almost great
by Thom the "Love Bomb" on 2021/05/04 15:15
Having issues creating library with newest update. So sad. All other features work so well. I love how we can program how many measures this metronome will play and then turn itself off. Great idea.
Great product easy to use!

BACKUP YOUR SONGS !!
by grtbet on 2021/05/01 15:49
When the app released PLUS, I LOST ALL MY SET SONGS, THE POPUP TO BUY PLUS POPS UP EVERYTIME NOW! I spent HOURS getting my songs back but most are still lost. Would recommend but plus breaks everything.
Tooooo weak

by Asickdrummer on 2021/04/26 21:47
I love this watch and you can pair it with the app with the subscription. The only draw back is that the iPad app doesn't switch orientation to landscape.
Great but...
by Bklyn Geno on 2021/04/26 16:38
The Soundbrenner Core is amazing with all that it does!! One thing it doesn’t do that well is tuning a 6 string electric bass. The tuning does not lock in. The note names change after awhile. Maybe one thing you can do for the tuner is for it to have different setups for different instruments? Extended range for 6 string bass. Other than that I don’t leave home without it!! Gene
Love it, needs landscape support.
by Quesaaa on 2021/04/25 16:44
This is by far he best app for a metronome out there, its very clean and offers much functionality for free. The only issue I have is that it’s not fully optimized for iPad. It doesn’t go into landscape at all and is not compatible with the Magic keyboard. I’d love to control it with the space bar and arrow keys. Otherwise this is perfect.
Great app

by Epnomn on 2021/04/19 23:35
It has been more than a year since I have used it. Much has happened since then. Just opening the app and syncing is now a pain. You have to wade through far too much unnecessary commercials just to begin a practice session. I want to open the app, sync and start practicing. No subscriptions, no adds for bells and whistles - just get me to work fast. Ain’t nobody got time for this sh—- 😆

Good metronome...
by Tryeyeyey on 2021/04/06 00:19
However I’d love to have a metronome that doesn’t have significant downbeat on the first count. When there’s a formatta in a song, that first downbeat throws off the count.
You’re gonna have to keep paying
by Icopelli on 2021/04/05 20:09
I’ve been using Soundbrenner for almost 3 years and I was a very happy costumer... until the company decided to charge me for using the app that it used to be free. Luckily the songs I had saved before were not lost after the update. But from now on, I have to pay the app to add more songs. What I do is, I keep renaming the songs I don’t use anymore, but I refuse to pay, since I’ve paid a good money for the actual wearable device. Unless you’re willing to pay for the device AND keep paying for a metronome app, I don’t recommend this app nor the device. There are other metronome apps in the market that you pay only once and have many more features. In Summary, if you buy the Soundbrenner wearable, you’re falling into a trap. Run from it!
It’s okay

A new dimension in metronome.
by nealgrover on 2021/03/31 13:20
A great thing. A silent metronome, it can give you a nice flash on the backbeat. Great for blues and boogie solo piano. I always always speed up unless my drummer is there to hold me in tempo. But recording acoustic piano with a metronome running is just “??”
It does the job
by ab829 on 2021/03/28 06:37
I work with this app daily. It just does what it’s supposed to do. Keeps tempo. Its flexible and reliable. No problems at all. I’d recommend it. Not flashy but very functional. What else can you ask for?

Cluttered mess
by Jesse Jackson 3 on 2021/03/12 11:23
The clutter at the bottom of the app damages its usefulness in professional situations. No one wants a “Home” page full of ads when they’re trying to push play or settings. Tuck all that in settings. We spent hundreds of dollars on the device, the constant pushy upgrade ads are insulting and make the app fail in professional use. The app worked great 10 versions ago.
Gngff
by Barney The Obease Dinosour on 2021/03/09 00:17
All the features work well but the actual sound of the metronome is so obnoxious that it’s hard to actually practice with it and for that reason alone this app is just unusable for me
Very basic. Lacks key features.
by Jeff A Johnston on 2021/03/06 20:24
This is okay for a very basic metronome. It has a downbeat with BPM, time signature, and a simple rhythm you can overlay - that’s it. If you’re looking to practice complex polyrhythms or something like that, look at something more full-featured like Dr Betotte. I got it because it advertised Inter-App Audio, allowing you to chain this into a music production workflow with an app like AUM or Audiobus. It does that, sure - but frustratingly, this app forces portrait mode on an iPad. Almost nobody does music production in portrait mode. When I’m strapped in with my iPad set up on top of my keyboard, I’m not going to take it off and rotate it just because I need to fiddle with a basic metronome. Especially since this is - as I said - basic. Dr Betotte does a ridiculous amount of things that this metronome doesn’t. When I practice, I need to be able to keep my beat at 180 BPM and toggle quickly between the beat alone, triplets, and half-time triplets. With Dr Betotte, that’s just the press of a button, and it’s super easy to set up; here, I can’t find a way without completely rejiggering the tempo. And if there IS a way - maybe it’s a pro feature? But I’m not paying a subscription for a fricking metronome app! I don’t mind paying ten bucks or something if it’s a one-time thing, but - we’re just talking about a metronome here. I’m not planning for a metronome fee in my monthly budget. Yikes. The free version here is okay. It’s not much more than that, though.
Hmmm
by Bfrank4fr on 2021/03/03 15:23
Would be nice to have an option where you don’t get that clinging first beat and it’s just a continuous beat
Unreliable
by bkonefsky on 2021/02/26 01:20
3rd time I lost my entire library of 200 tempos. Getting sick of all the glitches like speeding up as you are playing or not turning off. I don’t feel like they understand how much work you put into your libraries then poof it’s gone due to an update. Now they have the service for a fee. Tech support takes more than 24hrs to respond to each question and answer. And I still don’t know how to troubleshoot the problem.

Lights aren't syncing with sounds
by djm1029 on 2021/02/21 01:01
I just switched from Android to iPhone and downloaded my favorite metronome app. Oddly, the flashing lights on this version aren’t syncing with the sounds. There’s a little lag in the beginning and then the high note that's typically on the "one" syncs up with the second beat in the visual block sequence. If I place a high note on the first and second visual block, the high note will sound on the second and third beat. Doesn't matter which time signature I choose. Weird, huh? Suggestions?
Needs work and real customer service
by Rowboat captain on 2021/02/19 20:27
I bought this for the metronome and the fact that it is supposed to connect to Logic Pro as a midi and when I play the song I want to practice the watch is supposed to start up with the project. After going through the instructions posted online nothing happens. I’ve emailed the company but they refer you to the online instructions which are out of date. This company needs real customer support

I’ve had the app for years and it worked fine. I never updated it. I had recommended it to others. Now today I did the update and the app won’t even open past the opening screen now! Seriously?! How do I revert back to the old versions of the app?
Was great until they updated it
by BusinessNutria1 on 2021/02/12 16:41
I used this all the time. Was great. Once it updated by itself (I had auto update off) it won’t open and just crashes on the opening screen. That’s why the three stars. Please fix

by CRtrio on 2021/02/06 20:57
It looks like your latest app update now forces you to pay a monthly fee for storing more than 10 songs in the library. Really?? Now you’re going to charge people for storing a small amount of data? I paid over $100 for the device and you won’t even let me store some song data without being charged? That’s terrible!

Needs landscape mode
by monospace on 2021/01/26 07:03
It’s a fine standalone metronome and a must have companion app for the Soundbrenner wearable devices, but it really, really, really needs to have a landscape mode. It’s frankly bizarre that it doesn’t already have that.

Best metronome app ever
by Sergio Montejano on 2021/01/21 01:12
The best. Period
The app was awesome but now
by kaos_k13 on 2021/01/20 22:05
When I first started using Soundbrenner I loved it. I had the pulse then bought the core steel. The app was awesome to. Then they started the subscription thing which for what they offered was a good idea. Except that before it started I was able to put as many songs as I wanted (so far , had 65) but then with the subscription it is only allowing 10 unless you subscribe. I get why with the other features like cloud service and all. But when my songs where on my app and iPad only I don’t understand why I had to subscribe. Being a drummer for a church I’m playing different songs every week so I needed to have a long list of songs. I went to add a song and they made me subscribe. So unless you only have 10 songs or want to pay either $60 or 8$ after their new launch promo is over . You may want to find a different way of using a metronome. As for myself and the members of the band who are using this with me I think we may find another way. Don’t get me wrong , if you want the cloud ability or the videos this is the way to go but if you were just wanting to do the app metronome or something similar then find something else. Thank you Soundbrenner for the few years of use though. I really did like the metronome.
Superb!

by LukeZ23 on 2021/01/14 18:15
This is such a great app!!! This app is so cool, when I first searched for a metronome app I just found a random one and I’m glad I found this one! This app has so many cool features that I wouldn’t ever be able to come up with in a million years! The app also is free but at the same time doesn’t have many ads if any, I don’t remember seeing any ads other than briefly when u load the app. Edit (1-14-21): I am not a fan of Soundbrenner plus which doesn’t really add much and just takes away from free users. This is still a fantastic app but I am dropping it down, unfortunately the quality of the app has gone down with having to pay to do things that were free in the past :(
Ok
by Addison🇺🇸🌺🐶🥳😀☺️ on 2021/01/14 13:49
Soundbrenner needs to have more sounds for the metronome so if people want a drum beat then they could find one on there.

Landscape mode and constant marketing
by tnypxl on 2021/01/02 15:43
As a metronome, it’s fine. But I can’t use it because it doesn’t support landscape mode. I can’t open the app without being bludgeoned with their accessory marketing. Please let me opt out of that. UPDATE: It’s 2021 and still no landscape mode. 🤨

Music store or Metronome?
by JeffFit on 2020/12/25 23:30
It's a nice Metronome app, but my God, you would think it's primarily a shopping app when each time the app opens, you start at the storefront. Each new session is two taps to get to the Metronome, which is 100% what the app is for, which is 100% annoying.
Annoying
by danguskhan on 2020/12/22 02:45
Free version, always need to reconnect device and immediately prompted to watch tutorial videos which is incredibly annoying. Too many banners and ads for a premium app subscription. For an already expensive product that really requires the app to be useful, this is unacceptable.
Do NOT Upgrade to Latest Version
by PicassoNeverDies on 2020/12/20 16:51
Upon upgrading to the newest version you are now required to sign up for a monthly subscription to use features that were previously free (can now only have ONE SETLIST). Absolute garbage. Was willing to tolerate the bugs in the app because of the ability to store multiple songs and set lists. Would rate negative stars if I could.

by PirateJesus on 2020/12/18 05:51
Lots of features and easy/intuitive to use. There are more advanced metronome apps, but they tend to be a PITA to use - a metronome isn't the kind of thing one should have to spend time learning how to get basic functionality from, and now I only use those advanced metronome apps when absolutely necessary. The things I would do differently are: 1) A theme that is in between light and dark. The former is a borderline eyesore - what works for an object doesn't necessarily work for a skeumorphic GUI on a bright screen - and it's a little more difficult to see the details of the GUI on the latter; 2) A larger Play button, perhaps located in the center of the tempo dial; 3) A Mute button (sounds silly but it can be useful - and having the feature buried in a menu is not); 4) Perhaps this feature exists if one has the full version of the app, or perhaps I just haven't delved into the programmability of it enough, but a way to have the click sound alternate between on and off while the metronome is running would be extremely useful. ...but YMMV. UPDATE: Removed two stars. The Home page is nothing but an annoying page of ads, and the Learn page, while arguably useful for some, obviously has nothing to do with actual metronome core functionality. The latter should be put into a sub-menu, and the former should be removed, or at least have its menu icon removed. The range of possible time signatures is also limited - no option for /16 or /32, and you can’t always substitute /8 for them when the tempo is limited to 400bpm and the number of beats is limited to 16. It’s also somewhat slow to load, considering there are more complex and fully-featured metronome apps that load faster. I guess the hardware support aspect is a resource hog?
Love it!!

by DB189 on 2020/12/13 14:12
$4.99 for monthly subscription ($40 annually) seems a little steep. $1.99 would be more realistic. I use this app for our church band and I’ll have to try other options if the price doesn’t come down.

Best metronome app ever
by catpetter2001 on 2018/07/19 16:41
This is not one of those apps that makes you buy their stuff to get to use more on this is one of the apps that is actually on the market free to use and isn’t trying to scam you into buying a lot of stuff just to use a metronome. They do have a wearable device that cost about $100 that’s can link directly to the app but it is not needed to use the app. I haven’t bought in the Yum wearable part of it yet, But with all of those apps that I’ve wasted money Paying for extra content I could’ve use that money to buy the wearable device. So I suggest you check this app out if you’re looking for a Metronome that’s easy to use it has many different features you easily get overwhelmed but that’s the point when it does have some cool options like you can tap a button over and over and over to set your own tempo . if you’re going to download a metronome stop wasting money and download this one if you want to use money not wasted because this is not a waste by the actual device I’m going to do that resume or update this review on without the app and tracks with the device one side by the device but for now it’s five stars
Edit: Klopfgeist and other sounds stutters at higher tempos and while using different subdivisions.
by Mindwess Wetad on 2019/02/07 21:47
Edit: Be careful which sound you choose for the metronome, as they sometimes stutter and change the downbeat. In my initial review I forgot that I had changed the sound to Klopfgeist. There are some other sounds that act funny at higher tempos and different subdivisions, but some of them work fine. And the fact that you can change sounds, subdivisions, and time signatures is great. (Pre-edited review): I’ll preface by saying the interface is easy to use and I like that it is one of the few free metronome apps that allows you to customize time signature, subdivisions, and click sounds. I am a drummer, and having a tool to help lock in more difficult patterns, grooves, and rudiments is wonderful. However, whenever the audible beats are at highish tempos/actual playing speeds (noticed it starting with quarter notes above 120bpm, eighth notes at 64bpm, triplets at 84bpm), there are clicks that sound like digital clipping distortion, sometimes blended with the chosen click sound, sometimes swinging on offbeats. Occasionally, the metronome will stutter off-tempo and change the downbeat, halting practice, defeating the purpose of using a metronome. I only use the standalone app as a practice tool. Be wary if you are thinking about using it in a gigging scenario or spending money on it or its affiliated products.
Great app. Maybe over kill for an old guy.
by chirotay on 2018/04/29 06:09
I didn’t use a metronome for many many years and didn’t record my self either. Finally another musician suggested that I meter myself. So I started with an external metronome drum box that cost about $80 bucks. But then I found a few met apps and they helped but would shut of if I opened a recording app. So I tried this vibrating met. And it didn’t work for me but this metering app is way good. I am able to record my self while the app stays on and it doesn’t time out part way through. And it can store the names of songs and their timing and which key and has really helped me improve my singing and playing. People don’t get up and leave because I have great timing now, even when I forget the words. I don’t lose them. The price is worth a good product.
The app was awesome but now
by kaos_k13 on 2021/01/20 22:05
When I first started using Soundbrenner I loved it. I had the pulse then bought the core steel. The app was awesome to. Then they started the subscription thing which for what they offered was a good idea. Except that before it started I was able to put as many songs as I wanted (so far , had 65) but then with the subscription it is only allowing 10 unless you subscribe. I get why with the other features like cloud service and all. But when my songs where on my app and iPad only I don’t understand why I had to subscribe. Being a drummer for a church I’m playing different songs every week so I needed to have a long list of songs. I went to add a song and they made me subscribe. So unless you only have 10 songs or want to pay either $60 or 8$ after their new launch promo is over . You may want to find a different way of using a metronome. As for myself and the members of the band who are using this with me I think we may find another way. Don’t get me wrong , if you want the cloud ability or the videos this is the way to go but if you were just wanting to do the app metronome or something similar then find something else. Thank you Soundbrenner for the few years of use though. I really did like the metronome.
Love the pulse and app BUT.....
by cvoyiatt on 2017/11/08 16:05
Since receiving the body band the pulse works great for me as a drummer. As I have used the app more and more in rehearsal and gig settings, some things I would love to see improved for practicality and ease of use. The ability to modify your own main screen with some options would be great. For example, when a setlist is loaded in the player, it would be nice to see five or six songs in the box i/o just one, to be able to scroll and identify tunes quickly in the case where the band goes away from the original plan. Realistically as well, for an old guy like me, the font is pretty small when using an iphone especially to see in low light settings. Like other metronomes I have used the primary button dial (watch face in your case) could be a little smaller to allow for more space above. Thanks and keep the improvements coming.
Great app and device!
by majikgal on 2020/04/01 15:35
I play multiple instruments and multiple styles of music. I love how versatile and easy to use the app and wearable devices are. Especially when playing different genres if music, it’s so helpful to have subdivision of beats, and customizable colors (and vibration strength) assigned to different beats within the measure. I own a Soundbrenner Pulse, which is great, and I can’t say enough good things about the new Core as well! The app is also easy to use and totally functional without the metronome watch, so it’s good even if you don’t own one yet (but trust me, you want to buy the wearable as well. It’s AWESOME!) Keep up the great work, Soundbrenner! I’ve recommended your products to my friends in the past, and will continue to do so. Definitely a fan for life!
University Musician
by thisnicknameislareadytacken on 2020/03/23 22:15
I find that often use of the metronome betters a musicians skill to determine tempo for a given piece of music or composition and is a crucial and key element to any aspiring musician, however, this apps’ metronome seems to go back 1 beat when left on for long periods of time (I use the metronome often when practicing and I usually practice 2-3 hours/day). I set the tempo at 100 bpm with triplets every downbeat and after a minute or so, the downbeat for 1 moved over to the second triplet of the first beat triplet, and after another minute, the downbeat landed on the 3rd triplet of the first beats’ triplet. Decent app if you’re in middle school, but if you’re in high-school thinking about majoring in any subfield of music or a musician yourself in college or university, I highly suggest you use another metronome. I know this is not crucial to the majority of the audience, but for professionally trained musicians it is easy for us to tell when the downbeat is off, and completely messes us up in our practice.
So close to awesome yet so far... 1 year later
by Bumptious B on 2019/11/01 01:36
First, I want to commend these folks for offering a free metronome with all the subdividing bells and whistles. That is mighty, mighty cool and I’m a fan on that basis alone. That said, the swing beat setting is so glitchy it is absolutely unusable at any tempo -it is, sadly, the worst I’ve ever experienced. I haven’t had it very long and haven’t explored the other subdivisions but it don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing. On a less dismal note, it would be great if, in the wide variety of sounds offered, there was an actual, simple metronome click. Tough one to rate star-wise as it is almost an incredible app but it fails on its most elementary mandate. A fix of these tempo glitches would warrant so many stars. I wish the developers well... 1 YEAR LATER After posting my review, the developers were quick to reach out - much appreciated! The only recommendation I got was to update my iOS and app regularly - already do that. Not only did that not fix the problem, in the past weeks, the problem has gotten worse. Now, not only is the swing feature useless due to dropped beats, now the triplet feature drops beats and bounces the “1” around randomly - even at slow BPM. Again, I love the concept but the product has moved from one setting being unusable to two. Sorry to see this great idea get worse. So many awesome options don’t mean much when the central function fails.
Best Metronome App Out There
by PatrickSMcKinnis on 2019/06/30 18:35
I love using Soundbrenner as my go to metronome. There are so many things you can do with the app. Overall the experience is great. The only suggestion I have (and maybe it’s already a thing and I just don’t know how to do it) is that you are given the capability to create your own “song” per say. What I mean is that a musician would be able to take a piece he or she is working on and replicate it as a saved file. You would be able to put in the number of measures and customize it with the correct time signatures as well as beats per measure as they change throughout the piece. Other than that, this is a fantastic app and I would recommend it to any beginner and or professional.
Glad I didn’t buy hardware yet
by D> on 2020/10/10 17:27
I was planning to purchase the pulse or core at guitar center this morning. I decided to use the app by itself for a while to make sure of the functions in the app. Well I’m glad I didn’t buy the hardware yet. The timing in the app seems to stray rather quickly. The 1 beat seems to move around to other beats or it skips a beat. Also the time seems not to be steady, like a metronome is supposed to be. I’m on the latest app version and latest iOS 14 build. I restarted my iPhone 11 and same issues. Weird. Also when trying other subdivisions, the 1 seemed to skip randomly. Sometimes it was fine but the longer it played the beat seemed to shift or timing slightly strayed. I’m so glad I didn’t shell out money for the core hardware. Also the app dark mode display is a bit difficult to read and see in low light (like when performing on stage). The blinks are good, just the contrast of the interface should be improved. Would also be nice to adjust the color of blinks for better viewing depending on the room environment. It is good as-is, colors is just a suggestion. The app has much potential but doesn’t seem like there has been much improvements judging by prior reviews. I hope there are improvements - I would buy if I knew the system was more dependable.
Beautifully functional app... but no Watch support??
by jmcguire on 2020/01/15 22:14
I want to use Soundbrenner for all my production and live work. I really do. But the need to purchase a separate piece of hardware (that is a direct replacement for my Apple Watch - for my use case) is a non-starter. If an “in-app upgrade,” or “pro” version existed which included Watch pulse functionality, I’d be all in. It may even lead to purchasing the proprietary device... I have no doubt it’s a better experience when you’re controlling the UEX end to end. I’d love to see some middle ground for someone like myself, who is faced with many alternate options - some new and some I’ve used for years. Really great and beautifully built app (completely unexpected for a metronome!) but for the full “body tempo” functionality, I’m going to keep looking.
Powerful app and easy to use
by MatthewEBauer on 2018/07/04 17:17
I love what the Soundbrenner team is up to. I have been familiar with the product since it’s release and have tried the pulse metronome a number of times including at NAMM. I personally don’t use the vibrating bands as I like my IEMs but that mean I discredit that part of the technology. Forerunners in the field and quite a different tactile sense. The stand alone app is simple to create songs, edit playlists, add subdivisions, count ins, and more! Lighting options, light pulsing, and Bluetooth are all other useful tools as well. I have tried numerous metronome apps before the Soundbrenner team released this app and product and I have to say this is still the best hands down. Nothing negative to say.
Add this please
by Kimmy smiles on 2020/08/06 14:34
So I love your app but some of my music I have to play in band has a dotted quarter note subdivision and I noticed that your app doesn’t have that. I would appreciate it if you would add this Edit: Also, I noticed that in the compose section of the app, you can add how much measures the metronome will play. I think you should add this feature to the song creation part of the app so if your making a set list with multiple tempos subdivisions and time signatures. It would automatically switch to the next song so you won’t have to switch in the middle of playing. This would be really helpful if your setlist one piece of music with tempo changed and time signature changes. It’s really hard to practice a full run through of something when you have to tap the play next button.
SO SO GREAT BUT!
by Jacob Rhymes on 2019/03/25 13:30
This app is amazing, but please add this one feature and it’s a done deal. Add custom MEASURES within songs to have an easy flow of songs and tempo changes after a certain amount of measures!! (EVEN MORE IMPORTANT)! Also, the transition between songs in a set list MUST be seamless. Meaning when I click the next button, and I still have 2 or 3 beats left in that measure, it should WAIT UNTIL the downbeat of the NEXT MEASURE in order to change. If you do this, things like Rush will be a drummers dream with this metronome, and I will be able to calculate measures in order to help with my practice for my WGI independent group I am in, for seamless movement transitions.
Landscape mode for iPad
by A Mercer on 2020/08/16 22:40
This app is useless to me without Landscape mode for iPad. Most people have an iPad case and i have the Logitech Combo Touch with keyboard and trackpad. It’s like a mini laptop and props itself up on a side table next to my kit or anywhere. The app is probably fine on the phone but I don’t want to learn two separate apps for lack of a LANDSCAPE feature missing. The audio out plug and lightning power cord are on opposite sides of the 7th Gen iPad. Which end should I prop it up on to use? Oh, yeah it won’t work unless it’s unplugged from the audio or the power. Did anyone making this app ever use an iPad? I’ve never seen an iPad case that props it up in portrait configuration. I Googled to fine “best metronome app FOR iPad”. Your marketing team will be happy to know your app shows up first in the search. It may be the best in function, but without Landscape mode, it’s the WORST in the real world for iPad.
Close to a perfect metronome
by C Stromwall on 2020/05/27 16:56
I really love the features of this free metronome app. It provides 99% of my subdivision needs, many options for the sounds, and reliably stays on when I lock my phone or record a long video. However, there are a few minor issues that hold it back. With subdivisions on there is a tendency for the downbeat click to move around, especially at higher tempos. This can be really frustrating when trying to work through a longer piece with a metronome, as I have to stop and regroup every time. It's a minor issue, but I am often annoyed at how small the arrow buttons are for changing the tempo up or down one click. I use them a lot and almost every time I end up hitting the number itself and the keyboard pops up for me to type in the tempo, then I have to close it. The extra few seconds just to bump the tempo once really add up. I wish I could quickly tap the screen and reliably change the tempo without pausing to make sure I'm right in the tiny hitbox. If these two problems were both fixed, this would be the best free metronome app available by far.
Elegant but Confusing
by NY Denizen on 2018/10/31 01:56
Sleek design, but a little bulky for wrist wear. However there are other body-position options. But since there seems no way to stop the metronome from flashing brightly to each beat, you may end up having a distracting light emanating from your chest, arm, foot! I also couldn’t find how to set a vibrational accent on the first beat of each measure. Designers seem to think that anyone using the device is an experienced musician! The basic function of a metronome is to measure time by communicating beats, according to the user’s requirements. Introducing non intuitive concepts such as ‘Compose’, ‘Songs’ and ‘Playlists’ in a metronome is just confusing, and to this user, probably unnecessary. Also, for some unspecified reason, there is but a single default setting, 4/4 at 120bpm when you shake your device. Cool idea, but useless if you’re wanting another setting. App froze on me while doing required firmware update. Undocumented fix required from tech support took overnight since they are 12 time zones away. Conclusion: I’d gladly take a slimmed down, single purpose vibrating, body-attaching, metronome, for less money and easier learning curve.
Love the device, the app leaves something to be desired
by rogerw on 2019/12/17 19:01
I really love the device. I play drums and this device really helps keep me on the beat. My problem is with the application. Occasionally when the application updates it deletes my song library, and there is no way to backup the library. I had a song library with about 200 songs in it, and after an update the library is gone. Really a pain to have to re-enter all my songs. Update October 2019 With help of support, there is a hidden menu that can restore your music library, but in my experience it only brings back about half of my songs. In my conversation with support they promised that iCloud backup of the music library was coming. This week, my music library disappeared again, and of the 200+ songs I had in the library only 90 songs restored. From what I can see there is still no iCloud backup, so I am done re-entering my songs library by hand. I love the device but the app leaves a lot to be desired. Update December 2019 The app now deletes my song library every day, and the restore functionality no longer restores anything. Emailing support is basically useless as they have no answers, and no ideas when the library issues will be fixed.
This is the best one I’ve found
by guitar.pickin.man on 2018/08/12 09:22
As a musician, there’s hundreds of options when looking for a metronome app. I’ve heard of this company but thought you could only use the app if you had the wearable metronome,but when I first installed the app and it gave me the option to just use it as a metronome, I was blown away! I just recently set up my account, which wasn’t an option with the other apps out there. the way you can change the time signatures and everything is truly remarkable! I am giving it a five star rating because that is what it deserves!
IT STOPPED WORKING??
by #.%.^.€.£ on 2020/08/07 23:43
i’ve used this app for almost a year but around a week or so ago the metronome stopped working? it worked perfectly fine before, and then i didn’t use it for a month, but it was still downloaded in my phone the whole time, now, it doesn’t make any noise. I can still change the tempo and all the settings but i no longer hear the beep. what metronome doesn’t make any noise? I’m unsure if this is just a glitch but i hope it gets fixed soon. update: i got it to work again, i’m not sure what i did but now it works!!
Just a Minor Issue
by Dreamscapelove on 2018/07/15 00:19
So far I have been using this app as my metronome for 3-4 years. This app is amazing and I use it every time I practice on my clarinet, but one issue seems to always come up. Every time I am practicing, the met just suddenly stops for a second or two and then it starts again. Sadly this has been going on for a while and although the app is getting more improvements, this one problem just isn’t getting improved on. Not only does this happen once, but during my time of practicing it keeps happening on and off, a handful of time every time I use it. Other than that, this is app is great.
Even a child can use it!
by Agile_GSD on 2019/06/30 23:19
My 10yo is toward the end if her first year of piano lessons. She has been struggling with speed and accuracy together. She was dreading practice and classes. I thought a metronome would help her increase speed incrementally, but am frankly running out of space! So, I looked in the App Store and found this app. It’s absolutely perfect! It was up and running instantly — even with a middle-aged mom at the controls. ;-) We started her exercise at 100bpm and increased it by 5bpm at a time. In less than an hour, she was accurately performing the piece at 230bpm!!! She’s once again excited about practice and classes. Her metronome app is her constant companion at the piano now. I’m sure there are plenty of great features that will be useful one day. But those extra features often make it difficult for newbies to do the basics. Not here! The basic stuff is intuitive and simple. Love it! Thank you!
Terrible
by n1ckyboy on 2020/06/22 21:52
This is just not a good metronome app at all. When I try and use the triplet subdivision on any tempo, it will be normal for a bit, but then it will become delayed by a single triplet partial, only to get back on track on a different beat, thus throwing me off completely. It’s not just the triplet subdivision either, it’s every one of them. It’s just an inconsistent met that sometime won’t even do what I’m telling it to do. If I want sixteenth note subdivision, it will stay normal for a bit, then it will just stop and go into some unidentifiable rhythm pattern, which from there I just have to close the app and reopen it. And it’s not like I have an outdated iPhone, I have an iPhone 8 with the latest IOS update. This app is just terrible, by far the worst on the App Store. If I could give it zero stars I would.
You’re gonna have to keep paying
by Icopelli on 2021/04/05 20:09
I’ve been using Soundbrenner for almost 3 years and I was a very happy costumer... until the company decided to charge me for using the app that it used to be free. Luckily the songs I had saved before were not lost after the update. But from now on, I have to pay the app to add more songs. What I do is, I keep renaming the songs I don’t use anymore, but I refuse to pay, since I’ve paid a good money for the actual wearable device. Unless you’re willing to pay for the device AND keep paying for a metronome app, I don’t recommend this app nor the device. There are other metronome apps in the market that you pay only once and have many more features. In Summary, if you buy the Soundbrenner wearable, you’re falling into a trap. Run from it!
LOVE IT 😍
by Viunasoltani on 2017/12/26 09:09
I am a part of a colorguard team. I often use this to understand the tempo of music that is hard to understand. Sometimes I even edit the music with the metronome in the background. It really helps when I’m trying to hit something sharp. I also love how you can still play outside of the app. I have to often record videos of myself to my coaches over the break but also to improve. My fellow guardians know this helps with rifle and saber. Any ways not gonna get too in detail but I love the app and it has truly helped me. X
Great App
by the blobfish god 97 on 2020/10/15 20:25
I've been playing music for about 4 years now and this app is by far the best metronome app i've come across. it features a wide variety of features such as count in, tapping to set the bpm, and many other things. they also have wrist watches and chest bands available for purchase if you really wanna get the full experience with the vibrations in time with the met. Overall this app is a must-have for any serious musicians who don't want to spend a lot of money on an actual metronome or an expensive "pro" app.
Set lists and songs deleted every time it’s updated
by knightvid on 2020/10/17 04:14
This is the second time I have updated the app, in the past year, to find my entire song and set library and lists deleted!! And thus hours of work! This is intolerable and I am extremely annoyed that Soundbrenner has not corrected this problem. The Core and Pulse are great conceptually and are hard to beat because there is nothing else like it on the market. Yet the implementation of the Core and this app are less than par. Not a good job here Soundbrenner. I am a real fan, but the reduction in ease of use from the Pulse to the Core, and this continuing app saga is loosing my support, if there was another competing product, you’d be in danger of loosing my business.
Best with the Soundbrenner core
by Yeadude207 on 2020/04/02 05:19
I just had some sort of glitch with the new update where I needed a third party app after being stuck in recovery mode, for anyone who gets this problem immediately contact services, they got back to me within the next day, and boom problem solved. As a drummer this is pretty helpful with the wearables due to the practicality of them. I wear mine all day and don’t really have any problems with battery power at all. But amazing customer services are very helpful when needed.
Do not buy this product!!!!!!
by victim of soundbrenner rip off on 2020/07/23 14:37
I have had my soundbrenner for about 4 weeks and it has already mysteriously died and not been able to be turned back on 4 times!!! Each time this happens I’m left with no watch for the day and frustrated! Just today I unplugged my watch and left for work and it DIED ON THE WAY IN with full battery! What good is a cool smart watch if you can’t trust it to not spontaneously die in you and leave you without that resource for the day! I also was told mine was made in their Chinese factory rather than the normal warehouse. I suspect this is the cause for the lack of quality. I asked for an explanation or a refund and have been ignored by the “support” team. Al in all this is a cool but cheaply made piece of crap.
Decent as a simple metronome
by black_mystery on 2020/11/09 00:06
Decent if you want a metronome that you turn on and off. Doesn’t work well if you want it for predetermined songs with specific bar speeds/ length. Tried to create a song so I could specify how many bars I needed (about 230 for a warm up) but when you create a song there was no option for length, the set info would play until stopped. When you’re “composing” you can select the length, but there’s no option to go past 100 bars and there’s no way to add that 100 bars to a song and keep adding as many as you need until you get your desired amount of bars.
A Really Great Metronome
by reidjazz on 2020/03/30 14:51
I use this app along with the Soundbrenner Pulse haptic (or vibrating) metronome. The so alone is easily my favorite metronome app but paired with the Pulse makes for an amazing tool for my own practice as well as for use on our worship team at our church...I feed everyone the sound of the click and I feel the click via the Pulse. Really helps my situation with severe tinnitus. I also use the two when I'm performing with Ableton Live, as Metronome supports Ableton Link, allowing me to have the Pulse perfectly in sync with Live.
Best Metronome App TO DATE!!!!!
by Micah210 on 2019/03/28 19:44
The fact that you can use different sounds for the actual metronome itself is pretty impressive; but when you factor in the fact that you can pair wearables with this app is ALL THE RAGE! I’m on the worship team at my church and as a drummer, whenever I have to washout on the cymbals it’s difficult to actually change the Click while still drumming, only with the Soundbrenner Pulse I can change the Click and/or stop it entirely with the flick of a finger! 10/10 Would Recommend!!
Quality App; Re-Install Cured Issue
by MaybeMilo on 2018/12/26 14:16
This has always been a quality app (especially for free use), but I find the new version no longer remembers the preference settings I had prior to my last exit. It’s a minor annoyance (though still an annoyance) to have to set everything back again if I’m still working on the same piece. Not a fatal flaw, though, and I do appreciate the application. Thanks! EDIT: Re-Install fixed issue — I should have tried that right off the bat.
Literally perfect, just one thing I’m looking for..
by morrrie on 2018/12/23 19:18
Practiced with it for a day and I’m already over my old metronome app. It’s great. I am definitely switching over to this one, however, I just have one thing I would like added in to it. All the tempo sounds just aren’t doing it for me. I’m marching corps this summer and I guess I’m really looking for that particular high pitched, ear aching, digital sound. I just like for my metronome to pierce through whatever I’m playing, and none of these sounds do that. If a sound like this could be added in that’d be amazing, 12/10!
Best app I’ve used
by Oikawasimp:) on 2020/10/16 04:27
This app is my favorite as it does not require you to buy certain things for different count tones or very high speeds. I like a lot that this app is easy to use and easy to find different things. I just recently started drums and this helps a lot and it has multiple count tones. I usually connect my phone to a speaker and even without one it is still loud enough to just use a practice pad or hit my sticks together. I highly recommend.
Just downloaded and uninstalled
by Soundbrenner? on 2020/01/09 04:29
I had this set to 20bpm and was going through every rhythm to see how it worked. After the 16th notes it started to count in a way I couldn't figure out or adjust in settings. This app would count "one" then count the beats per measure. For example when set to 1/4 notes it would count "one" 4 times starting one the first beat of the measure. When I set it to the 1/16th note rhythms with rests, it would count "one" then count "one" for the first beat of the measure. The flashing bars were also out of sync. I figured I could adjust it for my preferences but could not find many useful settings. My Ipad is a 7th Gen and 3 weeks old. It was throwing me off so I just uninstalled it.
Really solid app!
by JDTuck on 2019/01/13 12:19
This is my go to metronome whenever I'm on stage. Easy to run and reliable. Only criticisms are… 1. I wish it had a simplified stage mode with just songs and start/stop buttons that were bigger for when your playing and running click. 2. When you exit the app to go to another app and come back to it, it defaults back to the start screen and you have to set the entire set up again from your saved library. Other than those, I absolutely love Soundbrenner and will continue to use it.
If this is a marketing ploy, it worked!

I'm a worship leader and at a medium sized church and we play to a click for our worship sets.I have downloaded EVERY metronome app possible. I've bought Dr. Betotti, Tempo Advanced, and tried all the free ones. This app is free and it's the best for live settings. It's so well designed that I'm going to buy their product because I think it's going to be amazing based in how well this app is made. I'm also a web developer, so if this company is hiring, I'd love to interview with them!!!
Is Metronome
by 42nd St. Magrathean on 2020/01/16 02:22
Unnecessary In-App purchases aside, it’s biggest strength is just being a really good, regular metronome. Has all the features and functionality I was looking for as a drummer and beginner music producer. The In-App purchased are mostly unnecessary, unless you have the wristband thing it wants you to buy. I guess it vibrates to the beat or something? Which would be cool for some people 🤷‍♂️? Overall, great functionality, super user-friendly and really well made. TL;DR: Good metronome, weird IAP’s
Great metronome app
by RhodeIrish on 2018/05/15 19:03
This metronome app is my new favorite. As a standalone app it delivers all I need in a metronome but when paired with the Soundbrenner Pulse (which, if you’re a drummer - its vital!) your notion of time using audio (metronome) and/or feel (the Pulse) will improve dramatically. That is, if you put the work in. As if there weren’t enough, the Soundbrenner team constantly tweaks the app and the device as well as new features based in part of user feedback/requests. What the heck else could you want?
Review of Soundbrenner App
by 2011370Z on 2018/11/25 18:08
So far, I’m liking this app a lot! Very easy to use and it makes using a metronome so much easier. I’m enjoying practicing Bach Inventions so much more with this app. I like being able to change the tempo to a specific speed as well as the volume and sound. I’m even going to use it with some of my running drills that suggest using a metronome. I’m considering purchasing the vibration device, but I want to use this app for the sort time.
Love it
by VMC222 on 2018/09/26 15:21
I love this app and I have mentioned this to my section at my school and this is useful cause there is no pay needed to get the stuff you might want or need because it can save songs so you don’t have too look up or remember tempos it’s very easy to use not too confusing and plays eighth sixteenths triplets and lots of other combos of rhythms totally recommend to everyone in band it took my went over my expectations way over my expectations
Great app. Awesome metronome
by Bustopher_II on 2018/09/13 22:27
Excellent application! If scoring rate had 10 stars, this app would deserve 20. Well-designed interface, easy to use, very fluid, accurate and steady pulse, completely customizable time signatures: it allows to set tempos, subdivisions, accents and the number of bars per song (or its corresponding time length). It also provides a saving/loading option for rhythms (songs) and playlists, with no use limitations of its features. And moreover, no INTRUSIVE adds.
Awesome app
by Heat 2012 on 2018/02/17 20:41
I want to say This app really helps alot, I got the wristband yesterday and amazing how I can feel the tempo of the music through the wrist, I will try the Arm too, but wow really helps when I feel the tempo than hearing it, I have a hard time keep timing with tempo sound while using the guitar, just very hard for me to keep track with the beat but, now with the feel, I will be practicing more often and be less confused. Thank you Soundbrenner 👍 I consider best app
Excellent. Great ergonomics sophisticated without being complicated or difficult to use
by mfergie6 on 2019/05/21 01:21
Sometimes you only realise how good something is when you try the alternatives. Great interface, easy to use, and most importantly the sounds are very pleasant. You can change them and set it up exactly how you want it but the fundamental samples are very organic and warm sounding unlike many of the other alternatives out there. I love my Soundbrenner metronome
Works for them, not us
by Bobjtx on 2020/11/13 18:19
When I opened this app it said it wanted to search my home network for other devices.... uh, no. Then it wanted to send me push notifications.... again, no. Then it proceded to load a video it wanted me to watch. Will I ever be allowed to actually use the app? It’s a metronome. It’s just supposed to be counting tempo. Why would I want to have this app scan my home network, or sign me up to receive (marketing?) notifications, or watch a video of their products? Either this is a metronome app for us, or it is a marketing app for them... which is it? I would much rather pay for an app than get sucked into these marketing/sales schemes. Not for me!
No sync between iOS devices.
by ngretuta on 2020/04/19 16:19
I created a playlist/set list on the Song Library on my iPad, but there are times that I need to use the metronome on my iPhone, as the iPad is too bulky to be carrying around. At this time and age, I don’t understand why this app has no sync function between devices you use. Unless I missed it, there no sync capability in this app. Hope that the developers can add this function. It’s a hassle to manually have to reinput my song list again on another iOS device for this lack of functionality.
Works just like a paid metronome
by ProudlyUn-Cool727 on 2020/10/17 13:28
This app has all the gizmos and metronome tools anyone could ever ask for: Finding a tempo by tapping, making some beats silent, and having three different sounds you can assign to any beat, making it possible to practice with the time signatures you can’t usually replicate on a standard metronome. Any other app with this level of features is never free, but this one is, and I love it!
Pretty Good
by GiveItAStar on 2018/10/09 16:11
This app is a life saver. My instructor uses this, and I love it too. The only thing i would suggest is, maybe not so many product update notifications? It’s a little bit bothersome. Glad you make updates and all, but I can check it out myself when I open the “discover” button. I don’t need you to take over my screen when I open the app. Just a thought. As I said before, this app was a great investment, and I would encourage anyone to try it out!

Almost great
by Thom the "Love Bomb" on 2021/05/04 15:15
Having issues creating library with newest update. So sad. All other features work so well. I love how we can program how many measures this metronome will play and then turn itself off. Great idea.
Great product easy to use!

BACKUP YOUR SONGS !!
by grtbet on 2021/05/01 15:49
When the app released PLUS, I LOST ALL MY SET SONGS, THE POPUP TO BUY PLUS POPS UP EVERYTIME NOW! I spent HOURS getting my songs back but most are still lost. Would recommend but plus breaks everything.
Tooooo weak

by Asickdrummer on 2021/04/26 21:47
I love this watch and you can pair it with the app with the subscription. The only draw back is that the iPad app doesn't switch orientation to landscape.
Great but...
by Bklyn Geno on 2021/04/26 16:38
The Soundbrenner Core is amazing with all that it does!! One thing it doesn’t do that well is tuning a 6 string electric bass. The tuning does not lock in. The note names change after awhile. Maybe one thing you can do for the tuner is for it to have different setups for different instruments? Extended range for 6 string bass. Other than that I don’t leave home without it!! Gene
Love it, needs landscape support.
by Quesaaa on 2021/04/25 16:44
This is by far he best app for a metronome out there, its very clean and offers much functionality for free. The only issue I have is that it’s not fully optimized for iPad. It doesn’t go into landscape at all and is not compatible with the Magic keyboard. I’d love to control it with the space bar and arrow keys. Otherwise this is perfect.
Great app

It has been more than a year since I have used it. Much has happened since then. Just opening the app and syncing is now a pain. You have to wade through far too much unnecessary commercials just to begin a practice session. I want to open the app, sync and start practicing. No subscriptions, no adds for bells and whistles - just get me to work fast. Ain’t nobody got time for this sh—- 😆

Good metronome...
by Tryeyeyey on 2021/04/06 00:19
However I’d love to have a metronome that doesn’t have significant downbeat on the first count. When there’s a formatta in a song, that first downbeat throws off the count.
You’re gonna have to keep paying
by Icopelli on 2021/04/05 20:09
I’ve been using Soundbrenner for almost 3 years and I was a very happy costumer... until the company decided to charge me for using the app that it used to be free. Luckily the songs I had saved before were not lost after the update. But from now on, I have to pay the app to add more songs. What I do is, I keep renaming the songs I don’t use anymore, but I refuse to pay, since I’ve paid a good money for the actual wearable device. Unless you’re willing to pay for the device AND keep paying for a metronome app, I don’t recommend this app nor the device. There are other metronome apps in the market that you pay only once and have many more features. In Summary, if you buy the Soundbrenner wearable, you’re falling into a trap. Run from it!
It’s okay
by phoebisthebest on 2021/03/31 23:17

A new dimension in metronome.
by nealgrover on 2021/03/31 13:20
A great thing. A silent metronome, it can give you a nice flash on the backbeat. Great for blues and boogie solo piano. I always always speed up unless my drummer is there to hold me in tempo. But recording acoustic piano with a metronome running is just “??”
It does the job
by ab829 on 2021/03/28 06:37
I work with this app daily. It just does what it’s supposed to do. Keeps tempo. Its flexible and reliable. No problems at all. I’d recommend it. Not flashy but very functional. What else can you ask for?

Cluttered mess
by Jesse Jackson 3 on 2021/03/12 11:23
The clutter at the bottom of the app damages its usefulness in professional situations. No one wants a “Home” page full of ads when they’re trying to push play or settings. Tuck all that in settings. We spent hundreds of dollars on the device, the constant pushy upgrade ads are insulting and make the app fail in professional use. The app worked great 10 versions ago.
Gngff
by Barney The Obease Dinosour on 2021/03/09 00:17
All the features work well but the actual sound of the metronome is so obnoxious that it’s hard to actually practice with it and for that reason alone this app is just unusable for me
Very basic. Lacks key features.
by Jeff A Johnston on 2021/03/06 20:24
This is okay for a very basic metronome. It has a downbeat with BPM, time signature, and a simple rhythm you can overlay - that’s it. If you’re looking to practice complex polyrhythms or something like that, look at something more full-featured like Dr Betotte. I got it because it advertised Inter-App Audio, allowing you to chain this into a music production workflow with an app like AUM or Audiobus. It does that, sure - but frustratingly, this app forces portrait mode on an iPad. Almost nobody does music production in portrait mode. When I’m strapped in with my iPad set up on top of my keyboard, I’m not going to take it off and rotate it just because I need to fiddle with a basic metronome. Especially since this is - as I said - basic. Dr Betotte does a ridiculous amount of things that this metronome doesn’t. When I practice, I need to be able to keep my beat at 180 BPM and toggle quickly between the beat alone, triplets, and half-time triplets. With Dr Betotte, that’s just the press of a button, and it’s super easy to set up; here, I can’t find a way without completely rejiggering the tempo. And if there IS a way - maybe it’s a pro feature? But I’m not paying a subscription for a fricking metronome app! I don’t mind paying ten bucks or something if it’s a one-time thing, but - we’re just talking about a metronome here. I’m not planning for a metronome fee in my monthly budget. Yikes. The free version here is okay. It’s not much more than that, though.
Hmmm
by Bfrank4fr on 2021/03/03 15:23
Would be nice to have an option where you don’t get that clinging first beat and it’s just a continuous beat
Unreliable
by bkonefsky on 2021/02/26 01:20
3rd time I lost my entire library of 200 tempos. Getting sick of all the glitches like speeding up as you are playing or not turning off. I don’t feel like they understand how much work you put into your libraries then poof it’s gone due to an update. Now they have the service for a fee. Tech support takes more than 24hrs to respond to each question and answer. And I still don’t know how to troubleshoot the problem.

Lights aren't syncing with sounds
by djm1029 on 2021/02/21 01:01
I just switched from Android to iPhone and downloaded my favorite metronome app. Oddly, the flashing lights on this version aren’t syncing with the sounds. There’s a little lag in the beginning and then the high note that's typically on the "one" syncs up with the second beat in the visual block sequence. If I place a high note on the first and second visual block, the high note will sound on the second and third beat. Doesn't matter which time signature I choose. Weird, huh? Suggestions?
Needs work and real customer service
by Rowboat captain on 2021/02/19 20:27
I bought this for the metronome and the fact that it is supposed to connect to Logic Pro as a midi and when I play the song I want to practice the watch is supposed to start up with the project. After going through the instructions posted online nothing happens. I’ve emailed the company but they refer you to the online instructions which are out of date. This company needs real customer support

I’ve had the app for years and it worked fine. I never updated it. I had recommended it to others. Now today I did the update and the app won’t even open past the opening screen now! Seriously?! How do I revert back to the old versions of the app?
Was great until they updated it
by BusinessNutria1 on 2021/02/12 16:41
I used this all the time. Was great. Once it updated by itself (I had auto update off) it won’t open and just crashes on the opening screen. That’s why the three stars. Please fix

by CRtrio on 2021/02/06 20:57
It looks like your latest app update now forces you to pay a monthly fee for storing more than 10 songs in the library. Really?? Now you’re going to charge people for storing a small amount of data? I paid over $100 for the device and you won’t even let me store some song data without being charged? That’s terrible!

Needs landscape mode
by monospace on 2021/01/26 07:03
It’s a fine standalone metronome and a must have companion app for the Soundbrenner wearable devices, but it really, really, really needs to have a landscape mode. It’s frankly bizarre that it doesn’t already have that.

Best metronome app ever
by Sergio Montejano on 2021/01/21 01:12
The best. Period
The app was awesome but now
by kaos_k13 on 2021/01/20 22:05
When I first started using Soundbrenner I loved it. I had the pulse then bought the core steel. The app was awesome to. Then they started the subscription thing which for what they offered was a good idea. Except that before it started I was able to put as many songs as I wanted (so far , had 65) but then with the subscription it is only allowing 10 unless you subscribe. I get why with the other features like cloud service and all. But when my songs where on my app and iPad only I don’t understand why I had to subscribe. Being a drummer for a church I’m playing different songs every week so I needed to have a long list of songs. I went to add a song and they made me subscribe. So unless you only have 10 songs or want to pay either $60 or 8$ after their new launch promo is over . You may want to find a different way of using a metronome. As for myself and the members of the band who are using this with me I think we may find another way. Don’t get me wrong , if you want the cloud ability or the videos this is the way to go but if you were just wanting to do the app metronome or something similar then find something else. Thank you Soundbrenner for the few years of use though. I really did like the metronome.
Superb!

Before this new update come there is no limits of the song there is no limits of making set list Library and NOW YOU HAVE TO SUBSCRIBE $4 TO HAVE UNLIMITED CREATING SONGS AND UNLIMITED SETLIST. NOW THIS IS WHY I DONT LIKE THIS METRONOME NO MORE. If they would change it back I would be gladly too.

This is such a great app!!! This app is so cool, when I first searched for a metronome app I just found a random one and I’m glad I found this one! This app has so many cool features that I wouldn’t ever be able to come up with in a million years! The app also is free but at the same time doesn’t have many ads if any, I don’t remember seeing any ads other than briefly when u load the app. Edit (1-14-21): I am not a fan of Soundbrenner plus which doesn’t really add much and just takes away from free users. This is still a fantastic app but I am dropping it down, unfortunately the quality of the app has gone down with having to pay to do things that were free in the past :(
Ok

Soundbrenner needs to have more sounds for the metronome so if people want a drum beat then they could find one on there.

A great compliment to the pulse
by ignorethisreviewitsnotlegit on 2021/01/13 21:53
My Soundbrenner Pulse is a great alternative to the constant clicking of most metronomes, although it does take some getting used to. The app helps control the tempo/subdivision as well as the style of vibration. No complaints!
Amazing app

Great App

I love this app! As a high schooler, this is a fantastic tool. The subscription service isn’t ideal but the basic tools are worth it.
Seriously?
by Slaughter17 on 2021/01/12 21:14
Thanks AGAIN for deleting all of my saved songs and set lists with your update. Why should I pay for this service? You know how long it takes to enter all of these again? The subscription fees are too high also. I used this app about 6-10 times a year. Come on, man.

by Grant Erickson on 2021/01/08 02:54
This app forces you to log in just to get a metronome. The sounds for the clicks are very limited. It does work with a pedal but the others make it unusable compared to others.

I wanted a simple metronome app when I started playing drums. As I grew musically I was able to utilize the features I didn’t understand before. It’s a well developed app and worth 5 stars imho.
Landscape mode and constant marketing
by tnypxl on 2021/01/02 15:43
As a metronome, it’s fine. But I can’t use it because it doesn’t support landscape mode. I can’t open the app without being bludgeoned with their accessory marketing. Please let me opt out of that. UPDATE: It’s 2021 and still no landscape mode. 🤨
Great job with this witty invention

Music store or Metronome?
by JeffFit on 2020/12/25 23:30
It's a nice Metronome app, but my God, you would think it's primarily a shopping app when each time the app opens, you start at the storefront. Each new session is two taps to get to the Metronome, which is 100% what the app is for, which is 100% annoying.
Annoying
by danguskhan on 2020/12/22 02:45
Free version, always need to reconnect device and immediately prompted to watch tutorial videos which is incredibly annoying. Too many banners and ads for a premium app subscription. For an already expensive product that really requires the app to be useful, this is unacceptable.
Do NOT Upgrade to Latest Version
by PicassoNeverDies on 2020/12/20 16:51
Upon upgrading to the newest version you are now required to sign up for a monthly subscription to use features that were previously free (can now only have ONE SETLIST). Absolute garbage. Was willing to tolerate the bugs in the app because of the ability to store multiple songs and set lists. Would rate negative stars if I could.

Lots of features and easy/intuitive to use. There are more advanced metronome apps, but they tend to be a PITA to use - a metronome isn't the kind of thing one should have to spend time learning how to get basic functionality from, and now I only use those advanced metronome apps when absolutely necessary. The things I would do differently are: 1) A theme that is in between light and dark. The former is a borderline eyesore - what works for an object doesn't necessarily work for a skeumorphic GUI on a bright screen - and it's a little more difficult to see the details of the GUI on the latter; 2) A larger Play button, perhaps located in the center of the tempo dial; 3) A Mute button (sounds silly but it can be useful - and having the feature buried in a menu is not); 4) Perhaps this feature exists if one has the full version of the app, or perhaps I just haven't delved into the programmability of it enough, but a way to have the click sound alternate between on and off while the metronome is running would be extremely useful. ...but YMMV. UPDATE: Removed two stars. The Home page is nothing but an annoying page of ads, and the Learn page, while arguably useful for some, obviously has nothing to do with actual metronome core functionality. The latter should be put into a sub-menu, and the former should be removed, or at least have its menu icon removed. The range of possible time signatures is also limited - no option for /16 or /32, and you can’t always substitute /8 for them when the tempo is limited to 400bpm and the number of beats is limited to 16. It’s also somewhat slow to load, considering there are more complex and fully-featured metronome apps that load faster. I guess the hardware support aspect is a resource hog?
Love it!!

by DB189 on 2020/12/13 14:12
$4.99 for monthly subscription ($40 annually) seems a little steep. $1.99 would be more realistic. I use this app for our church band and I’ll have to try other options if the price doesn’t come down.

Best metronome app ever
by catpetter2001 on 2018/07/19 16:41
This is not one of those apps that makes you buy their stuff to get to use more on this is one of the apps that is actually on the market free to use and isn’t trying to scam you into buying a lot of stuff just to use a metronome. They do have a wearable device that cost about $100 that’s can link directly to the app but it is not needed to use the app. I haven’t bought in the Yum wearable part of it yet, But with all of those apps that I’ve wasted money Paying for extra content I could’ve use that money to buy the wearable device. So I suggest you check this app out if you’re looking for a Metronome that’s easy to use it has many different features you easily get overwhelmed but that’s the point when it does have some cool options like you can tap a button over and over and over to set your own tempo . if you’re going to download a metronome stop wasting money and download this one if you want to use money not wasted because this is not a waste by the actual device I’m going to do that resume or update this review on without the app and tracks with the device one side by the device but for now it’s five stars
Edit: Klopfgeist and other sounds stutters at higher tempos and while using different subdivisions.
by Mindwess Wetad on 2019/02/07 21:47
Edit: Be careful which sound you choose for the metronome, as they sometimes stutter and change the downbeat. In my initial review I forgot that I had changed the sound to Klopfgeist. There are some other sounds that act funny at higher tempos and different subdivisions, but some of them work fine. And the fact that you can change sounds, subdivisions, and time signatures is great. (Pre-edited review): I’ll preface by saying the interface is easy to use and I like that it is one of the few free metronome apps that allows you to customize time signature, subdivisions, and click sounds. I am a drummer, and having a tool to help lock in more difficult patterns, grooves, and rudiments is wonderful. However, whenever the audible beats are at highish tempos/actual playing speeds (noticed it starting with quarter notes above 120bpm, eighth notes at 64bpm, triplets at 84bpm), there are clicks that sound like digital clipping distortion, sometimes blended with the chosen click sound, sometimes swinging on offbeats. Occasionally, the metronome will stutter off-tempo and change the downbeat, halting practice, defeating the purpose of using a metronome. I only use the standalone app as a practice tool. Be wary if you are thinking about using it in a gigging scenario or spending money on it or its affiliated products.
Great app. Maybe over kill for an old guy.
by chirotay on 2018/04/29 06:09
I didn’t use a metronome for many many years and didn’t record my self either. Finally another musician suggested that I meter myself. So I started with an external metronome drum box that cost about $80 bucks. But then I found a few met apps and they helped but would shut of if I opened a recording app. So I tried this vibrating met. And it didn’t work for me but this metering app is way good. I am able to record my self while the app stays on and it doesn’t time out part way through. And it can store the names of songs and their timing and which key and has really helped me improve my singing and playing. People don’t get up and leave because I have great timing now, even when I forget the words. I don’t lose them. The price is worth a good product.
The app was awesome but now
by kaos_k13 on 2021/01/20 22:05
When I first started using Soundbrenner I loved it. I had the pulse then bought the core steel. The app was awesome to. Then they started the subscription thing which for what they offered was a good idea. Except that before it started I was able to put as many songs as I wanted (so far , had 65) but then with the subscription it is only allowing 10 unless you subscribe. I get why with the other features like cloud service and all. But when my songs where on my app and iPad only I don’t understand why I had to subscribe. Being a drummer for a church I’m playing different songs every week so I needed to have a long list of songs. I went to add a song and they made me subscribe. So unless you only have 10 songs or want to pay either $60 or 8$ after their new launch promo is over . You may want to find a different way of using a metronome. As for myself and the members of the band who are using this with me I think we may find another way. Don’t get me wrong , if you want the cloud ability or the videos this is the way to go but if you were just wanting to do the app metronome or something similar then find something else. Thank you Soundbrenner for the few years of use though. I really did like the metronome.
Love the pulse and app BUT.....
by cvoyiatt on 2017/11/08 16:05
Since receiving the body band the pulse works great for me as a drummer. As I have used the app more and more in rehearsal and gig settings, some things I would love to see improved for practicality and ease of use. The ability to modify your own main screen with some options would be great. For example, when a setlist is loaded in the player, it would be nice to see five or six songs in the box i/o just one, to be able to scroll and identify tunes quickly in the case where the band goes away from the original plan. Realistically as well, for an old guy like me, the font is pretty small when using an iphone especially to see in low light settings. Like other metronomes I have used the primary button dial (watch face in your case) could be a little smaller to allow for more space above. Thanks and keep the improvements coming.
Great app and device!
by majikgal on 2020/04/01 15:35
I play multiple instruments and multiple styles of music. I love how versatile and easy to use the app and wearable devices are. Especially when playing different genres if music, it’s so helpful to have subdivision of beats, and customizable colors (and vibration strength) assigned to different beats within the measure. I own a Soundbrenner Pulse, which is great, and I can’t say enough good things about the new Core as well! The app is also easy to use and totally functional without the metronome watch, so it’s good even if you don’t own one yet (but trust me, you want to buy the wearable as well. It’s AWESOME!) Keep up the great work, Soundbrenner! I’ve recommended your products to my friends in the past, and will continue to do so. Definitely a fan for life!
University Musician
by thisnicknameislareadytacken on 2020/03/23 22:15
I find that often use of the metronome betters a musicians skill to determine tempo for a given piece of music or composition and is a crucial and key element to any aspiring musician, however, this apps’ metronome seems to go back 1 beat when left on for long periods of time (I use the metronome often when practicing and I usually practice 2-3 hours/day). I set the tempo at 100 bpm with triplets every downbeat and after a minute or so, the downbeat for 1 moved over to the second triplet of the first beat triplet, and after another minute, the downbeat landed on the 3rd triplet of the first beats’ triplet. Decent app if you’re in middle school, but if you’re in high-school thinking about majoring in any subfield of music or a musician yourself in college or university, I highly suggest you use another metronome. I know this is not crucial to the majority of the audience, but for professionally trained musicians it is easy for us to tell when the downbeat is off, and completely messes us up in our practice.
So close to awesome yet so far... 1 year later
by Bumptious B on 2019/11/01 01:36
First, I want to commend these folks for offering a free metronome with all the subdividing bells and whistles. That is mighty, mighty cool and I’m a fan on that basis alone. That said, the swing beat setting is so glitchy it is absolutely unusable at any tempo -it is, sadly, the worst I’ve ever experienced. I haven’t had it very long and haven’t explored the other subdivisions but it don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing. On a less dismal note, it would be great if, in the wide variety of sounds offered, there was an actual, simple metronome click. Tough one to rate star-wise as it is almost an incredible app but it fails on its most elementary mandate. A fix of these tempo glitches would warrant so many stars. I wish the developers well... 1 YEAR LATER After posting my review, the developers were quick to reach out - much appreciated! The only recommendation I got was to update my iOS and app regularly - already do that. Not only did that not fix the problem, in the past weeks, the problem has gotten worse. Now, not only is the swing feature useless due to dropped beats, now the triplet feature drops beats and bounces the “1” around randomly - even at slow BPM. Again, I love the concept but the product has moved from one setting being unusable to two. Sorry to see this great idea get worse. So many awesome options don’t mean much when the central function fails.
Best Metronome App Out There
by PatrickSMcKinnis on 2019/06/30 18:35
I love using Soundbrenner as my go to metronome. There are so many things you can do with the app. Overall the experience is great. The only suggestion I have (and maybe it’s already a thing and I just don’t know how to do it) is that you are given the capability to create your own “song” per say. What I mean is that a musician would be able to take a piece he or she is working on and replicate it as a saved file. You would be able to put in the number of measures and customize it with the correct time signatures as well as beats per measure as they change throughout the piece. Other than that, this is a fantastic app and I would recommend it to any beginner and or professional.
Glad I didn’t buy hardware yet
by D> on 2020/10/10 17:27
I was planning to purchase the pulse or core at guitar center this morning. I decided to use the app by itself for a while to make sure of the functions in the app. Well I’m glad I didn’t buy the hardware yet. The timing in the app seems to stray rather quickly. The 1 beat seems to move around to other beats or it skips a beat. Also the time seems not to be steady, like a metronome is supposed to be. I’m on the latest app version and latest iOS 14 build. I restarted my iPhone 11 and same issues. Weird. Also when trying other subdivisions, the 1 seemed to skip randomly. Sometimes it was fine but the longer it played the beat seemed to shift or timing slightly strayed. I’m so glad I didn’t shell out money for the core hardware. Also the app dark mode display is a bit difficult to read and see in low light (like when performing on stage). The blinks are good, just the contrast of the interface should be improved. Would also be nice to adjust the color of blinks for better viewing depending on the room environment. It is good as-is, colors is just a suggestion. The app has much potential but doesn’t seem like there has been much improvements judging by prior reviews. I hope there are improvements - I would buy if I knew the system was more dependable.
Beautifully functional app... but no Watch support??
by jmcguire on 2020/01/15 22:14
I want to use Soundbrenner for all my production and live work. I really do. But the need to purchase a separate piece of hardware (that is a direct replacement for my Apple Watch - for my use case) is a non-starter. If an “in-app upgrade,” or “pro” version existed which included Watch pulse functionality, I’d be all in. It may even lead to purchasing the proprietary device... I have no doubt it’s a better experience when you’re controlling the UEX end to end. I’d love to see some middle ground for someone like myself, who is faced with many alternate options - some new and some I’ve used for years. Really great and beautifully built app (completely unexpected for a metronome!) but for the full “body tempo” functionality, I’m going to keep looking.
Powerful app and easy to use
by MatthewEBauer on 2018/07/04 17:17
I love what the Soundbrenner team is up to. I have been familiar with the product since it’s release and have tried the pulse metronome a number of times including at NAMM. I personally don’t use the vibrating bands as I like my IEMs but that mean I discredit that part of the technology. Forerunners in the field and quite a different tactile sense. The stand alone app is simple to create songs, edit playlists, add subdivisions, count ins, and more! Lighting options, light pulsing, and Bluetooth are all other useful tools as well. I have tried numerous metronome apps before the Soundbrenner team released this app and product and I have to say this is still the best hands down. Nothing negative to say.
Add this please
by Kimmy smiles on 2020/08/06 14:34
So I love your app but some of my music I have to play in band has a dotted quarter note subdivision and I noticed that your app doesn’t have that. I would appreciate it if you would add this Edit: Also, I noticed that in the compose section of the app, you can add how much measures the metronome will play. I think you should add this feature to the song creation part of the app so if your making a set list with multiple tempos subdivisions and time signatures. It would automatically switch to the next song so you won’t have to switch in the middle of playing. This would be really helpful if your setlist one piece of music with tempo changed and time signature changes. It’s really hard to practice a full run through of something when you have to tap the play next button.
SO SO GREAT BUT!
by Jacob Rhymes on 2019/03/25 13:30
This app is amazing, but please add this one feature and it’s a done deal. Add custom MEASURES within songs to have an easy flow of songs and tempo changes after a certain amount of measures!! (EVEN MORE IMPORTANT)! Also, the transition between songs in a set list MUST be seamless. Meaning when I click the next button, and I still have 2 or 3 beats left in that measure, it should WAIT UNTIL the downbeat of the NEXT MEASURE in order to change. If you do this, things like Rush will be a drummers dream with this metronome, and I will be able to calculate measures in order to help with my practice for my WGI independent group I am in, for seamless movement transitions.
Landscape mode for iPad
by A Mercer on 2020/08/16 22:40
This app is useless to me without Landscape mode for iPad. Most people have an iPad case and i have the Logitech Combo Touch with keyboard and trackpad. It’s like a mini laptop and props itself up on a side table next to my kit or anywhere. The app is probably fine on the phone but I don’t want to learn two separate apps for lack of a LANDSCAPE feature missing. The audio out plug and lightning power cord are on opposite sides of the 7th Gen iPad. Which end should I prop it up on to use? Oh, yeah it won’t work unless it’s unplugged from the audio or the power. Did anyone making this app ever use an iPad? I’ve never seen an iPad case that props it up in portrait configuration. I Googled to fine “best metronome app FOR iPad”. Your marketing team will be happy to know your app shows up first in the search. It may be the best in function, but without Landscape mode, it’s the WORST in the real world for iPad.
Close to a perfect metronome
by C Stromwall on 2020/05/27 16:56
I really love the features of this free metronome app. It provides 99% of my subdivision needs, many options for the sounds, and reliably stays on when I lock my phone or record a long video. However, there are a few minor issues that hold it back. With subdivisions on there is a tendency for the downbeat click to move around, especially at higher tempos. This can be really frustrating when trying to work through a longer piece with a metronome, as I have to stop and regroup every time. It's a minor issue, but I am often annoyed at how small the arrow buttons are for changing the tempo up or down one click. I use them a lot and almost every time I end up hitting the number itself and the keyboard pops up for me to type in the tempo, then I have to close it. The extra few seconds just to bump the tempo once really add up. I wish I could quickly tap the screen and reliably change the tempo without pausing to make sure I'm right in the tiny hitbox. If these two problems were both fixed, this would be the best free metronome app available by far.
Elegant but Confusing
by NY Denizen on 2018/10/31 01:56
Sleek design, but a little bulky for wrist wear. However there are other body-position options. But since there seems no way to stop the metronome from flashing brightly to each beat, you may end up having a distracting light emanating from your chest, arm, foot! I also couldn’t find how to set a vibrational accent on the first beat of each measure. Designers seem to think that anyone using the device is an experienced musician! The basic function of a metronome is to measure time by communicating beats, according to the user’s requirements. Introducing non intuitive concepts such as ‘Compose’, ‘Songs’ and ‘Playlists’ in a metronome is just confusing, and to this user, probably unnecessary. Also, for some unspecified reason, there is but a single default setting, 4/4 at 120bpm when you shake your device. Cool idea, but useless if you’re wanting another setting. App froze on me while doing required firmware update. Undocumented fix required from tech support took overnight since they are 12 time zones away. Conclusion: I’d gladly take a slimmed down, single purpose vibrating, body-attaching, metronome, for less money and easier learning curve.
Love the device, the app leaves something to be desired
by rogerw on 2019/12/17 19:01
I really love the device. I play drums and this device really helps keep me on the beat. My problem is with the application. Occasionally when the application updates it deletes my song library, and there is no way to backup the library. I had a song library with about 200 songs in it, and after an update the library is gone. Really a pain to have to re-enter all my songs. Update October 2019 With help of support, there is a hidden menu that can restore your music library, but in my experience it only brings back about half of my songs. In my conversation with support they promised that iCloud backup of the music library was coming. This week, my music library disappeared again, and of the 200+ songs I had in the library only 90 songs restored. From what I can see there is still no iCloud backup, so I am done re-entering my songs library by hand. I love the device but the app leaves a lot to be desired. Update December 2019 The app now deletes my song library every day, and the restore functionality no longer restores anything. Emailing support is basically useless as they have no answers, and no ideas when the library issues will be fixed.
This is the best one I’ve found
by guitar.pickin.man on 2018/08/12 09:22
As a musician, there’s hundreds of options when looking for a metronome app. I’ve heard of this company but thought you could only use the app if you had the wearable metronome,but when I first installed the app and it gave me the option to just use it as a metronome, I was blown away! I just recently set up my account, which wasn’t an option with the other apps out there. the way you can change the time signatures and everything is truly remarkable! I am giving it a five star rating because that is what it deserves!
IT STOPPED WORKING??
by #.%.^.€.£ on 2020/08/07 23:43
i’ve used this app for almost a year but around a week or so ago the metronome stopped working? it worked perfectly fine before, and then i didn’t use it for a month, but it was still downloaded in my phone the whole time, now, it doesn’t make any noise. I can still change the tempo and all the settings but i no longer hear the beep. what metronome doesn’t make any noise? I’m unsure if this is just a glitch but i hope it gets fixed soon. update: i got it to work again, i’m not sure what i did but now it works!!
Just a Minor Issue
by Dreamscapelove on 2018/07/15 00:19
So far I have been using this app as my metronome for 3-4 years. This app is amazing and I use it every time I practice on my clarinet, but one issue seems to always come up. Every time I am practicing, the met just suddenly stops for a second or two and then it starts again. Sadly this has been going on for a while and although the app is getting more improvements, this one problem just isn’t getting improved on. Not only does this happen once, but during my time of practicing it keeps happening on and off, a handful of time every time I use it. Other than that, this is app is great.
Even a child can use it!
by Agile_GSD on 2019/06/30 23:19
My 10yo is toward the end if her first year of piano lessons. She has been struggling with speed and accuracy together. She was dreading practice and classes. I thought a metronome would help her increase speed incrementally, but am frankly running out of space! So, I looked in the App Store and found this app. It’s absolutely perfect! It was up and running instantly — even with a middle-aged mom at the controls. ;-) We started her exercise at 100bpm and increased it by 5bpm at a time. In less than an hour, she was accurately performing the piece at 230bpm!!! She’s once again excited about practice and classes. Her metronome app is her constant companion at the piano now. I’m sure there are plenty of great features that will be useful one day. But those extra features often make it difficult for newbies to do the basics. Not here! The basic stuff is intuitive and simple. Love it! Thank you!
Terrible
by n1ckyboy on 2020/06/22 21:52
This is just not a good metronome app at all. When I try and use the triplet subdivision on any tempo, it will be normal for a bit, but then it will become delayed by a single triplet partial, only to get back on track on a different beat, thus throwing me off completely. It’s not just the triplet subdivision either, it’s every one of them. It’s just an inconsistent met that sometime won’t even do what I’m telling it to do. If I want sixteenth note subdivision, it will stay normal for a bit, then it will just stop and go into some unidentifiable rhythm pattern, which from there I just have to close the app and reopen it. And it’s not like I have an outdated iPhone, I have an iPhone 8 with the latest IOS update. This app is just terrible, by far the worst on the App Store. If I could give it zero stars I would.
You’re gonna have to keep paying
by Icopelli on 2021/04/05 20:09
I’ve been using Soundbrenner for almost 3 years and I was a very happy costumer... until the company decided to charge me for using the app that it used to be free. Luckily the songs I had saved before were not lost after the update. But from now on, I have to pay the app to add more songs. What I do is, I keep renaming the songs I don’t use anymore, but I refuse to pay, since I’ve paid a good money for the actual wearable device. Unless you’re willing to pay for the device AND keep paying for a metronome app, I don’t recommend this app nor the device. There are other metronome apps in the market that you pay only once and have many more features. In Summary, if you buy the Soundbrenner wearable, you’re falling into a trap. Run from it!
LOVE IT 😍

I am a part of a colorguard team. I often use this to understand the tempo of music that is hard to understand. Sometimes I even edit the music with the metronome in the background. It really helps when I’m trying to hit something sharp. I also love how you can still play outside of the app. I have to often record videos of myself to my coaches over the break but also to improve. My fellow guardians know this helps with rifle and saber. Any ways not gonna get too in detail but I love the app and it has truly helped me. X
Great App
by the blobfish god 97 on 2020/10/15 20:25
I've been playing music for about 4 years now and this app is by far the best metronome app i've come across. it features a wide variety of features such as count in, tapping to set the bpm, and many other things. they also have wrist watches and chest bands available for purchase if you really wanna get the full experience with the vibrations in time with the met. Overall this app is a must-have for any serious musicians who don't want to spend a lot of money on an actual metronome or an expensive "pro" app.
Set lists and songs deleted every time it’s updated
by knightvid on 2020/10/17 04:14
This is the second time I have updated the app, in the past year, to find my entire song and set library and lists deleted!! And thus hours of work! This is intolerable and I am extremely annoyed that Soundbrenner has not corrected this problem. The Core and Pulse are great conceptually and are hard to beat because there is nothing else like it on the market. Yet the implementation of the Core and this app are less than par. Not a good job here Soundbrenner. I am a real fan, but the reduction in ease of use from the Pulse to the Core, and this continuing app saga is loosing my support, if there was another competing product, you’d be in danger of loosing my business.
Best with the Soundbrenner core
by Yeadude207 on 2020/04/02 05:19
I just had some sort of glitch with the new update where I needed a third party app after being stuck in recovery mode, for anyone who gets this problem immediately contact services, they got back to me within the next day, and boom problem solved. As a drummer this is pretty helpful with the wearables due to the practicality of them. I wear mine all day and don’t really have any problems with battery power at all. But amazing customer services are very helpful when needed.
Do not buy this product!!!!!!
by victim of soundbrenner rip off on 2020/07/23 14:37
I have had my soundbrenner for about 4 weeks and it has already mysteriously died and not been able to be turned back on 4 times!!! Each time this happens I’m left with no watch for the day and frustrated! Just today I unplugged my watch and left for work and it DIED ON THE WAY IN with full battery! What good is a cool smart watch if you can’t trust it to not spontaneously die in you and leave you without that resource for the day! I also was told mine was made in their Chinese factory rather than the normal warehouse. I suspect this is the cause for the lack of quality. I asked for an explanation or a refund and have been ignored by the “support” team. Al in all this is a cool but cheaply made piece of crap.
Decent as a simple metronome
by black_mystery on 2020/11/09 00:06
Decent if you want a metronome that you turn on and off. Doesn’t work well if you want it for predetermined songs with specific bar speeds/ length. Tried to create a song so I could specify how many bars I needed (about 230 for a warm up) but when you create a song there was no option for length, the set info would play until stopped. When you’re “composing” you can select the length, but there’s no option to go past 100 bars and there’s no way to add that 100 bars to a song and keep adding as many as you need until you get your desired amount of bars.
A Really Great Metronome
by reidjazz on 2020/03/30 14:51
I use this app along with the Soundbrenner Pulse haptic (or vibrating) metronome. The so alone is easily my favorite metronome app but paired with the Pulse makes for an amazing tool for my own practice as well as for use on our worship team at our church...I feed everyone the sound of the click and I feel the click via the Pulse. Really helps my situation with severe tinnitus. I also use the two when I'm performing with Ableton Live, as Metronome supports Ableton Link, allowing me to have the Pulse perfectly in sync with Live.
Best Metronome App TO DATE!!!!!
by Micah210 on 2019/03/28 19:44
The fact that you can use different sounds for the actual metronome itself is pretty impressive; but when you factor in the fact that you can pair wearables with this app is ALL THE RAGE! I’m on the worship team at my church and as a drummer, whenever I have to washout on the cymbals it’s difficult to actually change the Click while still drumming, only with the Soundbrenner Pulse I can change the Click and/or stop it entirely with the flick of a finger! 10/10 Would Recommend!!
Quality App; Re-Install Cured Issue
by MaybeMilo on 2018/12/26 14:16
This has always been a quality app (especially for free use), but I find the new version no longer remembers the preference settings I had prior to my last exit. It’s a minor annoyance (though still an annoyance) to have to set everything back again if I’m still working on the same piece. Not a fatal flaw, though, and I do appreciate the application. Thanks! EDIT: Re-Install fixed issue — I should have tried that right off the bat.
Literally perfect, just one thing I’m looking for..
by morrrie on 2018/12/23 19:18
Practiced with it for a day and I’m already over my old metronome app. It’s great. I am definitely switching over to this one, however, I just have one thing I would like added in to it. All the tempo sounds just aren’t doing it for me. I’m marching corps this summer and I guess I’m really looking for that particular high pitched, ear aching, digital sound. I just like for my metronome to pierce through whatever I’m playing, and none of these sounds do that. If a sound like this could be added in that’d be amazing, 12/10!
Best app I’ve used
by Oikawasimp:) on 2020/10/16 04:27
This app is my favorite as it does not require you to buy certain things for different count tones or very high speeds. I like a lot that this app is easy to use and easy to find different things. I just recently started drums and this helps a lot and it has multiple count tones. I usually connect my phone to a speaker and even without one it is still loud enough to just use a practice pad or hit my sticks together. I highly recommend.
Just downloaded and uninstalled
by Soundbrenner? on 2020/01/09 04:29
I had this set to 20bpm and was going through every rhythm to see how it worked. After the 16th notes it started to count in a way I couldn't figure out or adjust in settings. This app would count "one" then count the beats per measure. For example when set to 1/4 notes it would count "one" 4 times starting one the first beat of the measure. When I set it to the 1/16th note rhythms with rests, it would count "one" then count "one" for the first beat of the measure. The flashing bars were also out of sync. I figured I could adjust it for my preferences but could not find many useful settings. My Ipad is a 7th Gen and 3 weeks old. It was throwing me off so I just uninstalled it.
Really solid app!
by JDTuck on 2019/01/13 12:19
This is my go to metronome whenever I'm on stage. Easy to run and reliable. Only criticisms are… 1. I wish it had a simplified stage mode with just songs and start/stop buttons that were bigger for when your playing and running click. 2. When you exit the app to go to another app and come back to it, it defaults back to the start screen and you have to set the entire set up again from your saved library. Other than those, I absolutely love Soundbrenner and will continue to use it.
If this is a marketing ploy, it worked!
by Davidslee101 on 2017/09/18 16:17
I'm a worship leader and at a medium sized church and we play to a click for our worship sets.I have downloaded EVERY metronome app possible. I've bought Dr. Betotti, Tempo Advanced, and tried all the free ones. This app is free and it's the best for live settings. It's so well designed that I'm going to buy their product because I think it's going to be amazing based in how well this app is made. I'm also a web developer, so if this company is hiring, I'd love to interview with them!!!
Is Metronome
by 42nd St. Magrathean on 2020/01/16 02:22
Unnecessary In-App purchases aside, it’s biggest strength is just being a really good, regular metronome. Has all the features and functionality I was looking for as a drummer and beginner music producer. The In-App purchased are mostly unnecessary, unless you have the wristband thing it wants you to buy. I guess it vibrates to the beat or something? Which would be cool for some people 🤷‍♂️? Overall, great functionality, super user-friendly and really well made. TL;DR: Good metronome, weird IAP’s
Great metronome app
by RhodeIrish on 2018/05/15 19:03
This metronome app is my new favorite. As a standalone app it delivers all I need in a metronome but when paired with the Soundbrenner Pulse (which, if you’re a drummer - its vital!) your notion of time using audio (metronome) and/or feel (the Pulse) will improve dramatically. That is, if you put the work in. As if there weren’t enough, the Soundbrenner team constantly tweaks the app and the device as well as new features based in part of user feedback/requests. What the heck else could you want?
Review of Soundbrenner App
by 2011370Z on 2018/11/25 18:08
So far, I’m liking this app a lot! Very easy to use and it makes using a metronome so much easier. I’m enjoying practicing Bach Inventions so much more with this app. I like being able to change the tempo to a specific speed as well as the volume and sound. I’m even going to use it with some of my running drills that suggest using a metronome. I’m considering purchasing the vibration device, but I want to use this app for the sort time.
Love it
by VMC222 on 2018/09/26 15:21
I love this app and I have mentioned this to my section at my school and this is useful cause there is no pay needed to get the stuff you might want or need because it can save songs so you don’t have too look up or remember tempos it’s very easy to use not too confusing and plays eighth sixteenths triplets and lots of other combos of rhythms totally recommend to everyone in band it took my went over my expectations way over my expectations
Great app. Awesome metronome
by Bustopher_II on 2018/09/13 22:27
Excellent application! If scoring rate had 10 stars, this app would deserve 20. Well-designed interface, easy to use, very fluid, accurate and steady pulse, completely customizable time signatures: it allows to set tempos, subdivisions, accents and the number of bars per song (or its corresponding time length). It also provides a saving/loading option for rhythms (songs) and playlists, with no use limitations of its features. And moreover, no INTRUSIVE adds.
Awesome app
by Heat 2012 on 2018/02/17 20:41
I want to say This app really helps alot, I got the wristband yesterday and amazing how I can feel the tempo of the music through the wrist, I will try the Arm too, but wow really helps when I feel the tempo than hearing it, I have a hard time keep timing with tempo sound while using the guitar, just very hard for me to keep track with the beat but, now with the feel, I will be practicing more often and be less confused. Thank you Soundbrenner 👍 I consider best app
Excellent. Great ergonomics sophisticated without being complicated or difficult to use
by mfergie6 on 2019/05/21 01:21
Sometimes you only realise how good something is when you try the alternatives. Great interface, easy to use, and most importantly the sounds are very pleasant. You can change them and set it up exactly how you want it but the fundamental samples are very organic and warm sounding unlike many of the other alternatives out there. I love my Soundbrenner metronome
Works for them, not us
by Bobjtx on 2020/11/13 18:19
When I opened this app it said it wanted to search my home network for other devices.... uh, no. Then it wanted to send me push notifications.... again, no. Then it proceded to load a video it wanted me to watch. Will I ever be allowed to actually use the app? It’s a metronome. It’s just supposed to be counting tempo. Why would I want to have this app scan my home network, or sign me up to receive (marketing?) notifications, or watch a video of their products? Either this is a metronome app for us, or it is a marketing app for them... which is it? I would much rather pay for an app than get sucked into these marketing/sales schemes. Not for me!
No sync between iOS devices.
by ngretuta on 2020/04/19 16:19
I created a playlist/set list on the Song Library on my iPad, but there are times that I need to use the metronome on my iPhone, as the iPad is too bulky to be carrying around. At this time and age, I don’t understand why this app has no sync function between devices you use. Unless I missed it, there no sync capability in this app. Hope that the developers can add this function. It’s a hassle to manually have to reinput my song list again on another iOS device for this lack of functionality.
Works just like a paid metronome
by ProudlyUn-Cool727 on 2020/10/17 13:28
This app has all the gizmos and metronome tools anyone could ever ask for: Finding a tempo by tapping, making some beats silent, and having three different sounds you can assign to any beat, making it possible to practice with the time signatures you can’t usually replicate on a standard metronome. Any other app with this level of features is never free, but this one is, and I love it!
Pretty Good
by GiveItAStar on 2018/10/09 16:11
This app is a life saver. My instructor uses this, and I love it too. The only thing i would suggest is, maybe not so many product update notifications? It’s a little bit bothersome. Glad you make updates and all, but I can check it out myself when I open the “discover” button. I don’t need you to take over my screen when I open the app. Just a thought. As I said before, this app was a great investment, and I would encourage anyone to try it out!
