i think the metronome is great, and thought why not add some more functions, like using it as a guitar tuner? (using the built in mic in the h1xx)
how about an option for the metronome so the beat sounds a bit different on every 4th beat?

This task depends upon

Hi, I agree totally. It would be nice to have lots of musician tools.
In the metronome I'd add the following options (so it can be used as commercial metronomes):
- beat (7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0, triplets, ...)
- high-pitched sound on every beat
- Note playing (may be used for tuning): A,Bb,B,C,Db,D...
- Note octave
- Note calibration (default 440Hz)
- Optional visual effect on every beat (flash screen by changing background color or something like this so the tempo can be followed without listening)
- Simulated bouncing bar (like a real old metronome)

and this too:
- bypass/mute background music (useful for finding song tempos and tonalities)

Oh, I agree with these points... I made some audio files for equal and meantone temperament as a temporary solution (see below).

But of much higher importance (and hopefully not such a great task!) is

- Optional visual effect on every beat (flash screen by changing background color or something like this so the tempo can be followed without listening)

(or just a flashing symbol) - this addendum would be great help for musicians.

On the subject of guitar tuner, would it be possible to sample from mic (acoustic) or line-in (electric) and then display the result like those guitar tuning programs on my PC i'm so fond of =)not sure what kind of processing power that kidn of thing takes up but I wouldnt have thought anything too amazing.

Hi, I totally agree that it would be could to have all those features but I was really wondering about the different sound every 4th (or more preferably on a selectable beat like Joan said. Sadly it looks like this feature hasn't taken must notice since this request has been around for over a year. It would be very useful to me if someone would add that feature.

I did some initial work on this sometime ago. It did work on my iRiver H320, and my iPod 5G 60Gb.
