Today we’re super happy and excited to be releasing our latest app, “Hey Metronome!” Its a voice controlled metronome and it’s available on the App Store for a limited time introductory price of 99 cents!
With Hey Metronome, you can practice to a click and make adjustments completely hands free. You can set the tempo, time signature, sounds, and more, just by say “Hey Metronome” and then giving it a command. For example you can say “Hey metronome, set tempo to 140” or “Hey Metronome 4/4 time”, but you can also do “Hey Metronome, random adagio tempo” to give yourself a tempo within a certain range.
What this allows you to do is keep your hands on your musical instrument instead of fiddling around tapping on your device. The metronome does not even have to be visible for your to use it. You can wear earbuds, put your phone in your pocket, and still be able to practice, distraction free.
Hey Metronome is a culmination of a year of development and a partnership with KeenASR Research (for the speech recognition). But, its far from being done! We have a road map going forward, but we’re also going to be very responsive to user suggestions. Plus, the metronome will be the basis for a tutorial on how to build a metronome with AudioKit, so we’ll be open sourcing the code (minus the speech recognition stuff which is proprietary.)
So, come join us on this adventure and grab Hey Metronome on the App Store today
