Using the Programmable Metronome

If you are trying to steadily increase speed, try the programmable metronome.

Select how long you want each tempo to run, the BPM increment amount, the start and end BPM.

For example, start at 60 bpm and increase 2 bpm every 2 minutes until 140 bpm is reached.

Click START to generate and run the metronome program.
