Ruder than ever

Yet another release, thanks to valuable user comments:

  • Phone stays awake while the metronome is running.
  • Increased amplitude of the audio samples. (In plain English: the clicks are LOUDER!)
  • Improved response of metronome engine.
  • Reduced size of app somewhat.
Play, practice, have fun.

A Rude update


Finally, the update to Rude 0.7.1 is ready. In short this version is about:

  • A few rudiments corrected, to be in accordance with the  standard rudiments as published by PAS.
  • Completely rewritten metronome engine, with sample accurate sound.
  • Rudiment selection also via menu, as requested by users (thanks for the feedback!).
The big thing here is the new metronome engine. While still a work in progress this is something that will evolve and become very useful, I think. 

As always, Rude is downloaded from the Android market. Enjoy!
