AudioKit releases "Hey Metronome" voice-activated metronome for iOS

AudioKit Pro

AudioKit has announced the release of Hey Metronome, a new voice-activated Metronome for iOS. It allows you to play and practice hands-free using voice commands. It's now available in the app store for a special 99 cent intro price.

This is the first music app to use the new on-device voice recognition from Keen Research. This allows Hey Metronome to process voice commands without the internet. There's no need for Siri or Alexa. Everything is done on your phone.

Violinists never have to take their hands off their bow. Guitarists can keep their hands on their strings. Effortless play and productivity—all without touching a device.

Hey Metronome includes exclusive sound design from multi-platinum producers. You'll experience drum beats, classic booming drum machines, and sounds designed to inspire and limit ear fatigue.


  • Fun and professional, yet simple enough for kids.
  • Drum sounds by pro sound designers.
  • Use your voice to play, stop, set the tempo, and more.
  • Includes over a dozen themes. You can create your own themes.
  • Choose from 100+ subdivision & accent combinations.
  • Use Ableton Link to control tempo in your favorite apps.
  • Full Setlist & Song system. Change songs hands free.
  • Pick your time signatures, or through voice commands.
  • Friendly and encouraging: upbeat motivational messages.
  • Keep your hands on your instrument while you practice.
  • Customize the background with family, pets, or band pics.
  • No Internet required for Voice Control.
  • Practice in airplane mode. Complete data privacy.

There's also an open-source and education aspect. The metronome engine source code will be available as part of a free coding tutorial series, teaching students and enthusiasts how to build their own music app.

Hey Metronome is available now for a special intro offer of $0.99 in the App Store.
