Online Metronome

Use our simple online metronome to improve your musical skills.






How to use the metronome


First of all, you need to set the number of beats per minute or bpm that the metronome will play. To do this, you can use the slider or the increase and decrease buttons for precise setting.

Set Beats

Set the number of beats per measure. This can be a quantity from 1 to 12. If you do not know what value to put, we recommend setting the value to 1.


You can enter the bpm using the push-to-enter function. Press the button with a frequency that repeats the tempo you want and the bpm of the metronome will be set to that value.

A metronome is a device that produces regular, repeating sounds at a steady pace, indicated by beats per minute (or BPM). This device has many uses for musicians and is also an essential piece of musical equipment for students and professionals. The metronome is able to accurately determine the musical tempo, which helps to ensure the harmony of the music being played. Allows you to hone your sense of rhythm, maintains the tempo in the range from 30 to 240 beats per minute. Historically, bpm has not had the designation we are used to seeing now. This practice has only become common since the 19th century, when the metronome was invented.

Using Online Metronome

We can play any composition both at a slow pace and at a fast one. Strictly speaking, when learning a piece of music, you should always start playing it at a slow pace in order to play every note clearly. And gradually get closer to the original pace. During operation, the metronome emits evenly alternating sounds, indicating the beats of a piece of music. Typically, the tempo in a metronome can vary over a wide range. Musical metronome is a simple program for counting the rhythm, useful for learning to play the guitar and learning dance movements.

There is a fairly common misconception among beginners that there are metronomes for guitar and metronomes for piano. But in fact, there is no distinction between them. All metronomes perform the same functions and are therefore suitable for any musical instrument. The metronome is a really useful instrument, but remember - you cannot constantly practice with the metronome if you do not want to simplify yourself as a musician and turn into a jukebox that, without thinking, pulls the right string at the right time or presses the right key.

  • Grave – slow and solemn (20–40 BPM)
  • Lento – slowly (40–45 BPM)
  • Largo – broadly (45–50 BPM)
  • Adagio – slow and stately (55–65 BPM)
  • Adagietto – rather slow (65–69 BPM)
  • Andante – at a walking pace (73–77 BPM)
  • Moderato – moderately (86–97 BPM)
  • Allegretto – moderately fast (98–109 BPM)
  • Allegro – fast, quickly and bright (109–132 BPM)
  • Vivace – lively and fast (132–140 BPM)
  • Presto – extremely fast (168–177 BPM)
  • Prestissimo – even faster (178 BPM and over)

More about metronomes

The classic mechanical metronome is a pyramidal case made of wood with a cut edge, in which there are a scale of the beat frequency and a pendulum with a weight. Depending on the height at which the load is fixed, the frequency of impacts of the device changes. Today electronic metronomes are gaining more and more popularity.

Such a device can have not only the shape of a pyramid, but also any other - there are even models in the form of a decorative figure of an animal. The metronome structure remains unchanged. It is driven by a spring in the body, which is wound by a rotating handle on the side of the body. Based on the required speed of execution of a particular piece, the weight on the pendulum is fixed at one height or another. To increase the pace, you need to move it higher, and to slow it down, lower it down. Typically, tempo settings range from the lowest “grave” (40 beats per minute) to the highest “pretissimo” (208 beats per minute).

The metronome has existed for over 200 years, but its mechanism itself is closely related to the invention made by Galileo Galilei around 1637 - he discovered the principle of the regular movement of a pendulum. This discovery made it possible to invent the escapement mechanism of the watch, and in the future, the metronome.

How the metronome works

The metronome is based on a spring mechanism, which is activated by rotating the crown. Such a metronome is practically eternal and does not require additional investments in the form of batteries. The front of the metronome contains a pendulum and a scale. A movable weight is installed on the pendulum in accordance with a certain division of the scale. The higher the weight is, the lower the oscillation frequency of the pendulum, which means the lower the rate, and vice versa.

Electronic metronomes are popular with guitarists, drummers and other musicians playing a variety of music styles, although classical musicians will appreciate the compactness and versatility of these devices. Musicians who play wind instruments will surely like the external microphone in the form of a clothespin, which is attached to the bell of the instrument.

Particular attention should be paid to electronic metronomes for drummers, which take on special significance when you consider that in the group it is the drummer who sets the pace. Mechanical metronomes are not at all suitable for drummers, since the degree of their accuracy directly depends on the evenness of the surface on which it stands and the absence of vibrations. And the functionality is required more seriously.


A metronome is a must-have item in every musician's arsenal. With the help of it, the rhythm and tempo of the performance are worked out, novice musicians learn to count and keep the pace without speeding up or slowing down. With its help, you can easily, quickly and absolutely without straining to determine the tempo of the music being played. It serves as a perfect guide for smooth playing guitar, drums and piano. Metronome features: large selection of time signatures, ready-made rhythms, strong beat accent support. The time signature and tempo at which the metronome is running is displayed in the metronome interface. The online metronome on this site uses modern web technologies to create sound in order to ensure maximum compatibility with all browsers and operating systems.
