Can I archive this (or even delete it) now that we have Steve's new Rhythm Track generator :?:

Steve wants this BUMPed, writing:

> It will serve as a reminder for me to do "phase 2" (add a bit more to "Rhythm Track" and make a slimmed down "Click Track").

From archival memory, the objection I had to the original click track was it wasn't a click track. I needed a actual, simple click track and it was a career move trying to sort how it worked.

What's wrong with this picture?

Once a Rhythm Track is designed and produced, whole worlds open up. Select your drum or drum suite? No problem!

I'm happy with Generate > Click Track.
tick tick tick poop
tick tick tick poop

etc.

We are working up to a slightly more comprehensive version of the triangular box with swinging weight.

Buddy Rich is a different Generate Menu.

I'm on to it koz, but for contrast, see this App that calls itself a "metronome" / "Click Track": http://polynome.net/

I'm not complaining about speed of execution or development. I'm perfectly clear how hard this stuff is.

And that brings us 'round to the best way to listen for quality review in the field. I carry everything for these hikes on my back, so while I think those "Hollywood" Sony headphones are desirable, they're too big and bulky for a trip to Starbucks. Most earbuds I'll be generous and say are not up to the job. I did find an older design earbud that I like and a supplier of tiny foam covers. I can get remarkably close with that combination.

One would suggest the "deep" in-ear headphones are the way to go and I do have a set of those that works well, but getting them in and out is painful to me. Not crazy about associating pain with headphone use.

As we go.

I don't think I have anything that will play it. I never updated my Air to Sierra, so it's still cranking along on OS-X before the Great OS-X/iOS Meld which caused so many problems.

I wonder if they took a cue from the GarageBand people. Getting GarageBand to make a simple, high quality recording is hard work. I eventually sorted it and then needed to go lie down.

I wonder how much of that is bending before the user wishes and how much is bending before the wishes of Marketing and Publicity.

Also see: Zoom H2 (terrific recorder) versus H2n (terrific advertising and promotion).

Am I to see if I like it? I can't help gazing longingly at the little wooden box with the swinging weight on the credenza.
