Guitar Player Magazine says: "This ingenious super metronome was developed by funky-as-hell Sco sideman Avi Bortnick. It will leave out beats randomly to force you to strengthen your own inner time-keeping muscles, and it has other cool features for odd meters, drum machine-style patterns, and more. For the low price of $2.99, this is an awesome learning, grooving, solidifying tool."

Strengthen your inner sense of rhythm! Time Guru is the only metronome with the ability to mute its sound at random, in sequenced patterns, or both, so that you can assess whether you tend to rush or drag or loose your place with odd meters. Time Guru can periodically leave you on your own so that you strengthen your own internal sense of time, rather than relying on the constant, rigid, external time keeping of a metronome. Its like training wheels that sometimes come up off the ground.

Time Guru also features:
-the ability to play in different time signatures or sequences of time signatures
-create rhythmic drum-machine like patterns
-save presets for tempo, meter, sound and muting-
-35 loud sound sets;
-Human or robot voice counting in English, Chinese, French, German or Russian - great for teaching!
-tap tempo (5 to 300 BPM range)
-super accurate, rock-solid timing via a customized audio engine.

And of course it can function as a normal metronome.

NoTreble.com says: "I love the aesthetic and layout of Time Guru. It’s very simple and elegant. Time Guru also offers ability to set randomness of your subdivisions (great for testing your internal clock)….There is one thing that Time Guru does that I absolutely love, and for which, this app will always live on my iPhone – at the top of the screen, you will see a series of numbers (1-7). When you press a number, it is set first in a sequence and you can choose a subdivision that will then repeat that number of times (or set it to rest that number of times). Sound confusing? It isn’t, because the layout is so simple. Every time you press a new number, it is set next in the sequence and you choose your continue to choose your subdivisions."

Amazing app for musical training.

I really love time guru, that’s one of the best tool for musical practice. It more than deserves its price. My only concern is that the app is really energy consuming, even used in background. I hope this is a feature that will be solved soon. Without this last concern, I would definitely deserve 5 stars.

Excellent !

Jai trouvé un nouvel exercice de torture pour mes élèves :)


Simple but powerful! I love the Random mode... Strongly recommended.




Un peu complexe au début, mais au fur et à mesure de lapprentissage, ce devient indispensable. Top !!

Time Guru


Outstanding app; incredibly versatile

Far out! THE best all around time/ tempo/ metronome out there--and by quite a bit. Awesome click library: the hell with those annoying, stupid sounds perpetrated by the likes of Korg. The random mute function is meant to enhance your "inner beat" and it does so in a way that is both intuitive and challenging. Time signatures and time combinations range from dumb-proof simple to polyrhythmic heaven. You choose it. Seriously, I cant recommend this Time Guru highly enough. Plus the guy who designed it is John Scofields sideman. Not sure how this is relevant to my review but one can never go wrong with the venerable mr Scofield.
