Re: looking for vsti or au auio metronome plugin...anyone?


Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately, it doesn't really work for me. But I did give it a lot of thought!

After spending hours scouring the web, I eventually built a click track generator using a bidule group, of a step sequencer/mono synth/mixer. It actually works great, but is only in 4/4. I would have to build another one for any other time signature. 

Makes me want to learn to code VSTi's...

Hi George, 

Why don't you try a tremolo effect set to 8th note speed! Always keep that special plug-in on one of the tracks, so you know that any noise you initially create on that tracks loop will give you the tempo. Also look into the Mobius setting Maximum/Minimum tempo to avoid creating extremely slow or fast tempi by accident. These hints should work fine both when using Mobius as the sync slave or as the sync master.

I'm running Mobius inside Bidiule. I recently switched to the Mac. When I was on the PC, I had a pc-only metronome that worked well enough. But I can't find anything for the Intel-based Mac!

Since I want to use this in a live-looping context, recording an audio file with click is not going to cut it. I need to be able to change tempos on the fly, and also be able to sync tempo via midi to another computer.

I don't want to run in Live, I think that is going to seriously complicate my routing and control. I've got some great Bidule confgurations...I just need a click!

I'm also aware o the metronome.bgrp, but that is inappropriate...it is not an audio metronome, and when I connect it to an audio source the output is out of sync due to latency issues.

Any help is appreciated...
