You can turn on a metronome to help you practice — both with real recordings or with synthetic playback.
Metronome playback with real recordings
With a real recording selected from the recordings menu, tap the metronome icon. You’ll hear the pulse of the metronome along with the music when you click play.
(Note that the metronome’s pulse will follow your syncpoints for the selected recording. If it doesn’t sound right, be sure to check your syncpoints.)
Metronome playback with synthetic audio
With “Synthetic” selected from the recordings menu, tap the metronome icon. When you press play, you’ll hear the metronome along with the synthetic audio. Because synthetic audio does not have any syncpoints, the pulse of the metronome will be perfectly...metronomic.
A handy tool when practicing along with slices is the ability to hear a count-in before playback starts. To turn on this feature, press the gear icon in the lower right, and check the box for “Play with count-in” beneath “Play options.”
Count-in works for both real recordings and synthetic audio.
Adjust metronome volume
Just like other synthetic audio, you can change the metronome’s volume in the mixer panel.
To open the mixer, tap this icon in the controlbar:
