Improving the practice and performance of contemporary music

LSL.clicktrack

LSL.clicktrack is an application developed by Living Scores Learn to facilitate the translation of the theoretical analysis and research results into practical solutions. The application provides the possibility to rapidly create complex patterns and clicktracks to be used as a metronome in the practice room or in a performance. It can be used in combination with a sequencer and contains possibilities to program your rehearsal session. The application is part of the Living Scores Learn platform.

Two modes

LSL.clicktrack functions in two modes. Metro-mode and click-mode. Metro-mode is similar to a metronome; it plays back one pattern. Click-mode provides the option to define a range of measures - with meter and tempo changes - and play them back as your metronome. You preserve the tempo relations because the tempo will be scaled down instead of changed in absolute values when you want to practice at slower speed. The program window provides shortcuts for setting measures and will greatly improve the time needed to create a complex clicktrack.
