Extending the metronome, 'Rhythm Watch style'...
Dear Ardour users,
I was thinking about some extra features for the classic metronome, as presented in Ardour 2.0.
Ardour now supports a 'beats per bar' and a 'meter denominator'. What I'd like to see is the possibility to add separate volumes for quarter notes, eighths and triplets (maybe even more, like 16th or so), just like the ultimate metronome: TAMA's Rhythm Watch[1&2]
This can be represented with 4(+) simple horizontal sliders, created by 'New meter' and edited in the 'Edit meter' dialogs.
This way you can create a metronome on a quarter beat with an accent on the first and third count. Or mix a triplet with quarter notes. etc...
Each 'note' has a slightly different pitch, so that they can be easily recognized.
Exporting the clicktrack/metronome as midi would be a really cool bonus! (Ardour v3.0+) This way you can set up a neat clicktrack at home and bring it to the recording studio (where they may or may not use Ardour).
Feature request or thrashbin?
