Flamenco metronomes

This metronome comes packed with features including preset practice time structures including twelve beat. You will love the scrolling simple music sheets for the major flamenco rhythms, (buleria, soleá Siguiriya etc). It also comes with a three, six and four count which for use as a standard metronome. With a giant clock used to tick away the beat count it would greatly benefit all those looking to polish their Flamenco rhythm understanding.


The most striking thing about this metronome is it's sleek design which provides access to all its features at once. The clock keeping the count is very large and easy to read. Volume and Tempo are controlled using sliders with the tempo ranging from 0 to 270 beats per minute. If you are serious about your flamenco you really must check this one out.

Freeware. This tiny piece of software will amaze you. It's only 18.6 KB but fully programmable. It can give you any number of beats or accents you want, using any midi "tick sound" preset you want. The image shows 3 "tick sound" pull down menus but the progam has 9. You can even save your programmed rhythms as presets. Bulerías and Siguiriya are no problem at all. I'm impressed.



My own design

If you like to dabble in electronics, this circuit could help you pass the time. I designed it as a class project when I was doing my electronics course a few years ago.

Yes! I did built a prototype and it does work. There's no reason why it shouldn't. The design is pretty simple and anyone with a basic knowledge of digital electronics will be able to work it out with no problem. There is one working metronone in Malta that was built from this circuit.

I know it can be improved upon with faster IC chips and multicolored LEDs etc, but I'll leave that up to you. Sorry, I don't have a printed circuit board design for it. I dismantled it years ago and used the parts for other projects. I now use computer software to generate flamenco rhythms to practice with.
