Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the difference between Genius Clicks and other metronome apps?
Even though Genius Clicks was not designed to be used as a standard metronome it can most definitely be used as one. However, the main focus is on polyrhythms. It is the tool to guide you through the process of mastering rhythm in general and metric modulation and polyrhythms in particular. With the addition of three extra click sounds that can be set individually to keep time in different subdivisions or groupings, it is the perfect tool to help you internalise the composite rhythms that occur and work on your polyrhythmic phrasing.
