OT-Metronomes

Hey Guys,

I want to know if anybody is using a Yamaha clickstation.  Do you like it?  Right now we are using a Dr. Beat DM 90 and I like it, but it's a bit cumbersome with when trying to program tempos or tempo loops (tempo changes).  Does it have a loop function like the Dr. Beat DM 90?  Does it lose it's programming when the battery dies?  Thanks for your help.
I'm hoping for one that is more like a digital equivalent. The swinging pendulum is a pretty demo, but I don't really find it practical for drumming. I'm not sure what that app is from the other site - maybe an installable app for a jailbroken iPhone?

There are a few ";official"; metronome apps on the iPhone store currently, but they all appear to be the pendulum style. If anyone finds a good one they like, let me know!
i think the VDL idea is great, Jim. perhaps hard to start and stop, but great for runthoughs?
I had complained about the lack of useful metronomes for the iPhone/iPod Touch in the past, but our staff used ";Dr. Betotte TC"; for the past season - and it's great!

It's well worth the $10 for all the useful percussion features - remembering patterns, tap tempo, subdivision control��_ check it out here:

To be clear - I had nothing to do with this app, but I was happy to pay for it rather than writing my own. I haven't even bothered to get a new 9v battery for my Dr. Beat after the last one died :)

[/quote]If you make the click track more than one file, say one file for every rehearsal letter or one file for every drill set, you can start and and stop as you please.
