Performing musicians of contemporary music encounter compositions with ever-changing time signatures and tempi, along with unorthodox accents. They need something beyond the traditional metronomes.
In "metron DING!", made by Ding, users can type in the tempo, beats per bar, accents of beats, and the number of repetition of this pattern. Patterns can be added and deleted, and the "play" button will loop through the patterns. The overall tempo scale allows user to practice the entire piece from slower tempo up to the intended tempo and beyond.
