Adaptive Mode

Adapts to your playing

Set a tempo to start with, grab your instrument and start playing. The metronome will listen and react depending on how precisely you hit the beats. The tempo will increase until you start making too many mistakes, then slows down and tries again after a while. As you play along and challenge yourself, you will definitely see your results to improve.

I plan on using this because as I’ve said in many an columns, I like to work on technical exercises or passages through difficult lines with gradual tempo markings, allowing me to build the muscle memory as well as practicing good tone and feel from a solid foundation.
