5. Metronome Touch (iOS/iPadOS, US$1.99)
Metronome Touch. Style of pendulum.
Metronome Touch is created with one objective: to design a classic metronome
with a unique style, so we combined a
precise pendulum, perfected accuracy, and realistic interaction. Made of
aluminum and glass, Metronome Touch proves a
huge statement: It is as exclusive as your device. Launching Metronome
Touch, your device will become a metronome.
Anyone can try to make a metronome app, but success only comes when
listening to customers. That’s why Metronome
Touch centers around functions that musicians are looking for: The ability
to tap a beat, use customizable presets to save
your favorite sets (bpm, time signature and accentuation), and multiple
useful ways of adjusting the bpm. Metronome
Touch even goes far beyond that: Neither analog nor digital metronomes can
synchronize pendulums. But Metronome
Touch can. This opens completely new ways when practicing, performing on
stage or doing studio recordings.
