available_on_the_app_storeMy latest venture, Digital Hermosa, is earning traction in the market. We’ve developed and released both our first and our second iPad apps in the past week.

The second app, DR_M The Drummer’s Metronome is designed for the Apple iPhone/iPod/iPhone and incorporates several features designed for drummers and drumming students. Mechanical metronomes go to the user-defined frequency, tick, tock, tick tock. The problem that drummer’s have is hearing a tick and tock is not so easily done once they start hitting snares, base, toms and cymbals. Drummers need a visual metronome, which is exactly what DR_M is – a visual metronome.

Users choose the number of beats in a bar (1, 2, 3 or 4) and then choose the frequency rate in beats per minute (40-208). Tap to go; tap to stop. The app flashes a white screen for ~1/10th of a second at the frequency set when beats per bar is set to 1. For beats in bar set to 2, it flashes a black 1 on a white background forĀ 1/10th of a second and then a 2 for 1/10th of a second. It sequences a 1, 2 and 3 for 3 beats in a bar and of course, repeats a 1,2,3 and 4 sequence for 4 beats per bar.

Priced inexpensively at $0.99, the app is exclusively available for download on the Apple App Store.
