Wow, lots of stuff going on. I wish you everything to work fine.

Just hoping to see an interface remake sometime in the near future Cheesy.

Actually right now I'm working on the new website for Bounce Metronome. My sister Jo is a professional website designer ( and she has made a new website for me.

It's needed a fair bit of coding of Bounce Metronome - and organising and writing the text for the website and that sort of thing, so I've been doing that. Then need to make new videos for youtube better quality for the new site with edge smoothing (anti-aliasing).

One hopefully useful new feature is a wiki for Bounce Metronome - it will have all the content sensitive tool tip help for the program on-line and searchable.

Also while working on all that I've also needed to work on the FTS Lambdoma - similar idea to the rhythmicon in Bounce Metronome, used by some music therapists with a diamond shaped keyboard to play notes in the harmonic and subharmonic series.

But not done much work on new features as such for the last month or so. Right now need to focus on completing the videos and wiki etc. for the new website. So that's why you've not heard from me for a while.

Sorry, anyway hope this helps. I'll do another update of BM soonish - but not much by way of new features, just minor update.

At same time I'm involved in build of new house, which is taking up some of my time as well - so it is all go for the next few weeks anyway.

I was just wondering how development is progressing. I'm eager to see what you have in store for us in the next update ;-)
Best wishes with everything.

Yes, hope this helps:

4/4 with triplet for first half of the measure

Does this answer your challenge?

To get this rhythm - In the Pro metronome, I started with 4/4 beating eighth notes. Then added an extra 6/4 rhythm in Combine Rhythms (Ctrl + 217), set to play All at once (polyrhythms).

Then used the left click on a beat to skip beats in the first half of the measure for the eighth notes and in the second half of the measure for the triplet quarter notes to get the desired rhythm.

Here is my musical challenge.   I just can't seem play a triplet that counts for two beats in when I am playing 4-4 time.  It amounts to playing on an off-beat (2/3 of a beat length 3 times). 

I am a very visual person.  Has anybody a suggestion for display settings that would help me along?  I tried the splitting the beat into three subdivisions but the resulting count to 12 is too messy.

You can get an idea of what the new version of Tune Smithy will be like when ready if you look at Bounce Metronome Pro.

Basically, that's the new version of the Metronome and Polyrhythms task in Tune Smithy.

Many of the other tasks could be upgraded in a similar way.

If you want to be told when a beta of FTS is ready let me know - and say which tasks interest you particularly and I'll let you know when a beta of those tasks is ready.

Same thing, if interested to know when a release is ready for any of the tasks let me know.

Hi Everyone,

Just started an "Archived Posts" forum, as a way to deal with very old posts on the forums.

This archive is for old posts about older versions of Bounce Metronome which no-one has replied to for a very long time.

If the post is a wish or in some way is still relevant, I'll leave it in the main forum but if most of it is way out of date, then will move it here to make the main forum more approachable for newbies to these forums.

You can't reply to the posts here, as this forum is "read only". Only administrators can modify it. (This is to avoid confusions about which posts are archived and which aren't).

If you want to continue any of these discussions, or reply to anything in these threads, just start a new topic with the same title in the main forums.

Thanks, and thanks for those who posted in these discussions. They were valuable and helped to improve the program.

Here is how to do it with iTunes

How to convert Midi to Wav with iTunes

I've collected a list of some of the many ways to do it here in the Tune Smithy wiki.

Tutorials: How to convert Midi to Wav

and plan to do some more demo videos at some point.

Just to keep you up to date - I have done an upload with those fixes etc. Here it is:

Download Bounce Metronome

Not yet added any beeps to the menu though. But should be a bit easier to figure out what to do if you want to have a go at making one yourself.

Or - if not - I'll do a bit more on it some time - hopefully this week, try out a "beeps" drop menu. Then I can do a demo to show how to make a new instrument, complete with envelope, add it to the menu etc.

Plus look at some of the other ideas in this thread (e.g. sample playing etc) and either program or more likely add them to the wish list for now.

This is mainly for those of you who don't have a Digital Audio Workstation to use to bounce the midi to wav - or for some reason want another way to do it.

So - you have a midi file you saved from Tune Smithy and you want to convert it to a .WAV file. Here are some tips - there are many ways you can do it.

See How to convert Midi to Wav

If anyone has any other suggestions do say.
