Why BPM is doubled or halved?

EUMLab Support Team -

Pro Metronome supports 2 modes for BPM calculation.

1. BPM is calculate by 1/4 note by default. Pro Metronome support this for drum players.

For example:

"BPM = 120, Time Signature = 4/4" will be as twice faster as "BPM = 120, Time Signature 2/2", because both the BPM are calculated by 1/4 note. In other words, there will be 120 beats per minute, and one beat equals 1/4 note. so the 2/2 will be twice slower than 4/4 note.

If you are 2.0 version Users, This mode is supported by Pro Metronome by default.  Go to System Settings and find the Pro Metronome icon to change its settings.



 

If you are 3.0 version users, just swipe left and turn on the "Quarter Note per Minute", and it is not the default settings.


2. BPM is calculated by current note. Pro Metronome support this mode for classic, like piano players.

For example:

For example: "BPM = 120, Time Signature = 4/4" will be the same speed as "BPM = 120, Time Signature 2/2". Because the BPM of the former one is calculated by 1/4 note, the latter one is calculated by 1/2 note. That is to say, the former BPM means: there will be 120 beat per minute, and one beat equals 1/4 note. The latter one means: there will be 120 beat per minute, and one beat equals 1/2 note.

If you are 2.0 version users, Go to System Settings and find the Pro Metronome icon to change its settings.


 

If you are 3.0 version users, it is the default setting. Or you can just swipe left and turn on the "BPM".
