Default Polyrhythm Metronome App

Arguing with an ill informed drummer about what a polyrhythm is in the technique forum, as annoying as it is, still motivated me none the less. While looking for YouTube clips about the subject I noticed there are actual polyrhythm metronome apps out there.

I downloaded a free one "Polyrythm Metronome", so far it seems functional enough, has anyone else tried these apps?

Yep. Nothing worse than an ill informed drummer.

As the great Homer Simpson once said: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jZuktUfF0nE

I have it, if it's the one with the icon displaying 5:3 PolyRhythm
I've had it for years but couldn't say I really used it.
It seems pretty basic, and PolyNome is probably more interesting.

I use 'Tempo - Metronome' by Frozen Ape LTD. It's pretty neat. It used to be free but now it cost money it seems...

I'm not gonna argue with anyone dude. My work is demonstrated and applied in a musical manner. There's record of it on recordings and video. I wrote a book on using polyrhythms 15 years ago. If it was inaccurate you'd think someone would have called me out by now. They haven't because it's accurate.

You're posting videos of metronomes.

Have a nice day.

SmoothOperator is just butthurt because he's wrong. He'll never accept it. That's why he's been on my 'ignore' list for about a year. I suggest others do the same.

Oh there's that huh. I won't send him to the bad place so quick but it's nice to know it exists.

BTW, does anyone else think it sounds like flams when you set the metronome to play 14:15?

I can hear the flams pretty well.

I don't know what I would do with a device playing a polyrhythm for me.

I hung out with Joe Crabtree, the guy who invented the Polynome. Playing a show alongside him this weekend w/ Wishbone Ash.

We'll have plenty to talk about, LOL
