Projects / Accelerando


Accelerando is a musical metronome that can speed up, allowing you to practice your music at progressively faster tempos. For example, you could set it to play 60 beats per minute for 4 bars, then automatically speed up by 10 beats per minute, and so on.

            Okay, not what I expected. When I saw the project title my first thought was that this was some sort of game or such inspired by the science fiction novel Accelerando by Charles Stross.
