My most recent discovery. It is a play-along app, almost like iReal Pro, but here the emphasis is on rhythms, and more specifically, polyrhythms. If you are into those “metric modulation” concepts popularized by players such as drummer Ari Hoenig, this app is for you! The polyrhythms presented on this app will help you practice meter changes used by Tony Williams with the Miles Davis band, or Wynton Marsalis on the albums “Standards, vol.1 and vol.2”.
Not just any old metronome… This one was created by Jazz pianist Dan Tepfer. Its unique feature is a DOUBLE button that doubles the amount of time in between the clicks, letting you mentally fill-in the missing beats, and strengthen your inner time-feel. I have 5 or 6 different metronomes on my iPhone, but this one is the one I go to when I want the extra challenge!
