Here’s a list of 5 metronome software for Windows 10 which can be used by musicians and those who would like to become musicians when practicing their instruments. Metronome is a tool that helps people learn how to keep rhythm when playing an instrument. Following applications will turn your Windows 10 desktop, tablet or laptop into a metronome, helping you play better and also save a few bucks that you won’t be spending on buying a metronome.
Let’s look at these software below.
TempoPerfect Metronome is a simplistic yet feature rich free metronome software for Windows 10 that lets you configure pretty much any type of rhythm patterns that you can think of. After installing the software, you will see a control interface like the one pictured on the image above.
Setup the tempo, measure, subdivisions, volume and when everything’s ready left click on the play button in the bottom right corner. Rhythm config can be saved as presets, and the user can also customize the sounds used by the application (tick-tock metronome sounds).
Metronome EXP is another simple metronome software that comes with an easy to use interface for beginners, but it also has very advanced options under the hood, within its settings, for advanced users.
Metronome beats and rhythms are very customizable, plus the application comes with rhythm presets for music styles like jazz, blues and funk. Created rhythm patterns can be exported. Sounds used by the metronome are customizable and there’s also a blinker light that blinks alongside the metronome.
PC 9 Virtual Metronome
PC 9 Virtual Metronome is a metronome software that doesn’t have any kind of advanced settings and features hidden away behind menus or anything like that.
What you see on the default interface is what you get. This application lets you change things like tempo, tone type between several built-in tones, number or beats, volume and that’s about it.
GiveMeTac is basically PC 9 Virtual Metronome, minus the modern look and feel of the interface. Available customizations include things like tempo adjustments, beat adjustments, volume adjustments and a selection between 4 built-in beat styles.
Once you have all of the previously mentioned options configured to your taste, just click on the Play button in the bottom right corner of the interface..
MickMad Soft is both a metronome software and also an instrument tuner. Once you load it up, you’ll notice that the top half of the interface is reserved for the metronome, while the bottom half is for the tuner.
Metronome has a slider for configuring speed and a drop down for selecting the beat division. Tuner just has a drop down for selecting tunings after which the selected note is played so that you have something for comparison when tuning instruments.
Even though all 5 metronome software from the list above worked great I have to say that I really enjoy the simplicity and the nice mix of options that are available in PC 9 Virtual Metronome. For something a bit more advanced go with Metronome EXP. Let me know which application worked best on your Windows 10 desktop by leaving a comment down below.
