  • Adjust the tempo of the song using variable input from between minimum and maximum tempos.
  • Change lets you change to a tempo using the Tempo Picker.
  • Increase the tempo of the song by 1 BPM.
  • Decrease the tempo of the song by 1 BPM.
  • Tap changes the tempo of the current song based on taps. This taken into account the current time signature. This should not be used on high latency foot pedals since they are designed to forgive accidental foot taps or double entry.

Volume

Changes the volume of the metronome.

  • Adjust the volume of the metronome using a variable trigger.
  • Increase the volume of the metronome using the default increment of 6.25%.

  • Mute the metronome, allowing it to continue to keep time and optionally blink the menubar. This is great to use for practice to see if the beat can be maintained without click reinforcement.
