Metronome support... What ca I say about it...

possible configurable options
* Tempo (1/1, 1/2, 1/4, etc. BPM comes from song)
* Instrument (defaults to woodblock)
* First beat indicator toggle button
* Pitch selection for both the first beat indicator and default 'click'
* Volume selection

* Metronome pre-roll bars (play x bars of metronome before playing the song)

I like it, really. Especially the last, it is really usefull.

I didn't quite understand what you mean by "First beat indicator", but I guess that, when checked, would make the first beat in a measure louder (have more accent).

And about Tempo, I wouldn't make it 1/1, 1/2, etc. of a BPM, but in a note durations (whole, half, quarter...) because it would complicate in odd rhythms (like 5/4, 3/4. 11/8...).

And it is usuall in these kind of rhythm's to have different accentuation, so maybe some little editor can be done for this, but on the second thought it would complicate the whole dialog. :)

The metronome is very helpful. I hope to see this in the near future. I use it while practicing.

How about a 'wizard' which simply adds a 'metronome' track. Then, for those odd rhythms, they might add two tracks, one that ticks on quarter notes, and on on dotted-halves.

Just a thought.

my english is poor, i hope you understand me.

i suggest the posibility to change the tempo at the same time as the song is reproducing
