    eh? what do you mean by double times? I set it to 60 and i get one click per second... isn't that normal?

    Also, regarding it lagging, I think that depends not on internet latency but on what processes you have running on your computer/if you use your computer at any time. For example, if I alt tab, it will lose a portion of a beat- but I won't be alt tabbing/browsing internet/etc while playing ;)

    I still think my Seth Thomas pendulum metronome is sexy - even if it doesn't keep even time anymore.............

    rowuk,
    is your metronome design too lengthy to post here? If not, instructions to build one could be useful.......thanks

    crowmadic,

    If you really want to build a good one, buy the DB-88 and the DB-12, disassemble them, reconstruct one with the features suited to your use. Of course, you should first take a two year course in the Cleveland Institute of Electronic Technology if you have not already. It is a very simple course and you should be able to finish it in 9 months if you have nothing else to do.
