**Whatever you’re looking for, PolyNome probably does it!**

Designed by a musician, for musicians, PolyNome handles everything from reminding you to practice, to printing the setlist for your gig. Read on to learn more…


PolyNome is the ultimate tool for all musicians of any level. Used by the world's top drummers including Peter Erskine, Virgil Donati, Chris Coleman, Vinnie Colaiuta, Dave Weckl, Dennis Chambers along with concert pianists, orchestral performers and anyone else who’s interested in rhythm.

With PolyNome, you can practice, teach, compose rhythms, perform live and more.


▶ PolyNome contains a supremely accurate and robust metronome covering all time signatures. It includes a mixer with subdivision faders, hundreds of sound options, Big Numbers display, tap tempo, a rep counter, a timer, and more.
▶ In parallel with the metronome there are two advanced rhythm sequencers into which you can program virtually any rhythm.


▶ Dive into the free Public Library to find hundreds of user-curated Presets: You’ll find snare solos, rudiments, drum grooves, world rhythms, drum books and more. Just tap to install and start playing.


▶ Create 2 & 3-way polyrhythms and use any of the multiple visualizations to help you learn to play them.
▶ Use the random mute feature, or create custom gap clicks to improve your timing.
