30-300 beats per minute
The highest accuracy and repeatability possible
Set using an intuitive simulated metronome weight and a fine adjustment wheel.
Seven quick-select time signatures
Customize with any simple or complex meter you could want.

Visual counting mode, with multiple options depending on the time signature.
Italian tempo markings.

A basic drum machine, with six sound effects (37 in the paid version). Your loop lengths are also limited in the free version. Build a sound loop by entering note lengths, rests, and sound effects! Play the loop while you're building it, for instant feedback.

If you like this app, please support my work by upgrading! The paid app doesn't cost much, and you'll get 37 sound effects, voice counting, a full-featured drum machine, and the ability to pick custom background colors!
--- USER'S GUIDE ---
Meganome displays an animated metronome in the upper panel. The lower panel contains a tabbed display that shows either the metronome controls, the drum machine, or the set list manager. Press the appropriate tab to switch between them. The size of the lower and upper panels can be changed by sliding the grey divider bar up or down.
To adjust the metronome speed, tap the upper panel, and the settings dialog will slide in. Slide the metronome weight or rotate the adjustment wheel to directly adjust the speed. Tap on the drum pad to enter a bpm by tapping. Press the "Train" button to train the metronome to any beat the phone's microphone can hear.
In the metronome controls tab, press the Beat Sound, Measure Accent, and Subdivision buttons to toggle audible beat modes. Change your time signature by pressing one of the seven different time signatures. The current time signature is highlighted by the green rectangle. To add a custom time signature, long-press an existing time signature, and you can replace it with a custom time signature of your choice. For certain time signatures, pressing the visual counting display will toggle between different counting modes.
In the drum machine tab, select a beat duration and a beat source from the pull-down menus. You can listen to a sample of your current beat selection by pressing the green play button. Use the add beat icon (right arrow) to add this beat to your composition. The beat will be added above your current selection in the scrollable lower left list. Press the trash icon (left arrow) to remove the highlighted beat. The "Press to Play" button plays your composition.
SET LIST MANAGER
In the Set List Manager tab, press the add icon (right arrow) to add the current metronome and drum machine settings to the set list. Use the trash icon (left arrow) to remove the highlighted set from the set list. Press the green play icon to load a set that has been selected by scrolling the lower left list.
The phone's menu button accesses additional settings. Select your preferred beat sound, subdivision sound, accent sound, enable voice counting, change the background color, and change the volume. The phone's physical volume buttons also change the volume.
Fixed the force-close on pause issue. This is very difficult to reproduce, so please let me know the details if you see it! Thanks!!!
