AudioKit has announced availability of Hey Metronome, a new app for iOS that uses hands free, advanced proprietary voice-recognition, all without Siri, Alexa, or Voice Control.

AUdioKit Hey Metronome

Hey Metronome uses innovative hands-free, on-device voice-recognition, eliminating the problems of practicing with a classic metronome and its many uninspired digital equivalents.

It allows fluid, advanced, and lightning-fast interactions—NO internet required. Users will experience complete data privacy and airplane mode operations, i.e. no phone call interruptions while practicing. Hey Metronome means no Alexa. No Cloud-based services.

Musicians can easily tell Hey Metronome to speed up, half-time, or even tap out a tempo on their instrument. They can play and pause songs, change the time signature, and emphasize a beat.
