KMetronome is a MIDI based metronome using the ALSA sequencer.
The intended audience are musicians and music students. Like the solid, real metronomes it is a tool to keep the rithm while playing musical instruments.
It uses MIDI for sound generation instead of digital audio, allowing low CPU usage and very accurate timing thanks to the ALSA sequencer.
Here are some key features of "KMetronome":
Easy to use KDE graphic user interface.
MIDI only. Can be used with software- or external MIDI synthesizers.
Based on ALSA sequencer. Provides input and output ports. Very accurate timing.
Highly customizable parameters.
Built-in connection manager, can be used with external connection managers.
External control: play/stop/continue commands, can be controlled using DCOP or MIDI Realtime System messages.
In order to successfully use KMetronome, you need KDE 3.X. and ALSA drivers and library.
