I use this unit for 2 months and my favorite is the fact that we can change the settings of marks (accents volumes of black, crooked, doubles, triplets and overall volume) separately and easily. The backlight of the LCD screen and lights for accent and black are easily seen in the partial or total darkness. You can also quickly record tempos and name easily too. It is easy to change the tempo of each program. Possibility of chains (for someone who has several groups which often changes the order of his set). I tried the boss dr beat, but I did not like. Little sign of quality used among others by Manu Katche ...
The only downside so to say, be careful to replace the 9V battery pretty quickly because if it is exhausted or if it drags when changing presets are lost .... Solution: use up an adapter and / or check regularly the state of the battery
The quality / price / opportunity is unbeatable at the moment I would say.

how?'s review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
I use this camera for 9 months and I spare more.
I love everything about him is that the only default to be careful that there is always the battery to avoid losing data. I bought a transformer and I have no problem.
I tried other mtronome n'tait but not comprehensive enough for a drummer who plays all the time to click. I put the headphones and hear the great tones. I use it in my band by plugging a cable noon looping guitarist singer. It will automatically synchronizes slave and the looper also automatically (One branch, we're going to MIDI and a walk).
For mtronome not given but to really progress and had to be a carrer, it becomes especially necessary when you have music with loops or samples. I do not regret my choice at all. Exprience with this choice I would do without hsit.
Used for 2 and a half years and live again. Never had a problem with.
- What thing do you like most/least about it?
+ Memory to store the signatures and tempos of each song (with the possibility of naming presets)
+ 2 jack outputs
+ MIDI input
+ Display lighting
+ Tap tempo function (very useful for finding the right tempo of a song, just ask a musician to play and the type during that time, tempo, not the musician)
+ Setting divisions for action
+ The "vibration" (ideal for starting at the right speed without spreading the sweet sound of "BEEP" on stage)
+ LED displays that mark the tempo (not easy to stall it, but it still has a small utility)
+ Can fix it on a tripod, boom, stand, etc..
+ Organizing presets chain (to change the order of songs in a concert without having to move each of the memories)
- No possibility of registering a complex structure with change in tempo and signature change within a single song
- Data backup that requires a 9V battery (always provide a replacement battery, if it comes to empty, all that is in memory disappear)
- Did you try many other models before getting this one?
This was my one and only programmable metronome. According to its specifications, it was the only one able to respond to most of my expectations. Having already used with a group before you buy it, I knew what to expect and I saw how much he was robust and reliable.
- What is your opinion about the value for the price?
Very good product overall, but the price remains to my taste far too high for a metronome, programmable certainly, but is still not capable of managing a complex structure with change of signatures and tempos within the same song. There must be other similar products from other manufacturers for less. Albeit with fewer features but just know what we really need ...
- Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice?
If I had the opportunity to use my Mac to replace ClickStation Mainstage, it is highly likely that I would choose again this product (if finances permit).
