On arrival of the 'limited edition of one' Gold Label Hofner bass in PURPLE my wife instantly named this beauty 'Princess' - probably something to do with our mutual love for the artist that is happily called Prince again. I think there is only one other bassist in the world who has a purple Hofner (but with different PU configuration) - a great bassist and lovely guy from San Paolo: Ricardo Junior from OzDois - a Brazilian bass and drums duo.
Funky Metronome App
I’m very proud to announce that the Redtenbacher’s Funkestra logo is one of the standard backgrounds for a funky iPhone metronome called MyBeat by KnowledgeRocks, a new thing I’m involved in.
Shake to tempo
Shake the iPhone in time to your favourite tune to determine the tempo without even having to touch the screen, whether on or off. Imagine your iphone is a hammer hitting a nail to a pulse. You can also adjust the shake sensitivity; lowering the sensitivity and shaking the iPhone harder increases accuracy. This feature is much easier to use than tap tempo (although we have also included it) and much more fun.
Simple to use
We have designed a metronome that is super simple to use. We hate clutter, hence you will find a minimum amount of buttons.
Using low level APIs, we have managed to get the most accurate metronome for the iPhone. As Knowledge Rocks was created by professional musicians, we nearly drove our programmers crazy by demanding super-accurate timing that also feels good.
