F e a t u r e s

Exercises in 2/2, 2/4, 3/4, 4/4, 6/8, 7/8 , 9/8 time.

Each exercise can be played by the device at different speeds so that you can hear how it should sound and get the right rhythmic feel. Rhythms are played with slight subaccents to emphasize note groups.

Practice mode: you can tap along while the device is playing the rhythm and you get visual/audio feedback of the rhythmic performance. Repeat an exercise before testing until you get your timing exactly right!

More than 200 fixed exercises; the more difficult ones include rests, ties, syncopations, duplets, triplets, quadruplets and swing eighths.
