MetroGnome is a program designed to mimic a mechanical metronome. It is developed especially for the use of children. Parents who want to instill about rhythm and musicality in young kids can use this utility. MetroGnome is equipped with a visual beat indicator so that the user gets visual cues. The beats appear as little bee-like shapes on the screen. Children can follow the appearance of these figures as the digital metronome ticks to facilitate the development of a sense of rhythm. MetroGnome features crystal-clear sound quality that provides additional auditory cues as well.

One advantage of this program over its mechanical counterpart is that it does not wind down. It offers users a very accurate beat simulation. Operators of MetroGnome are also provided with a BMP Tempo Guide chart. This helps them to determine the right speed of music. This utility subdivides beats to emphasize a variety of patterns. Users will find it easy to use given the clear delineation of regular beats and accented beats. MetroGnome also features customized tempos, including Adagio, Allegro, Andante, Largo, Moderato, and Presto.

MetroGnome is compatible with Windows OS, specifically Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows XP, and Windows Vista. The interface is intuitive and easy to navigate and a beginner will have no trouble operating the program.
