Music Assistant is a great tool that can help musicians doing two things that they probably do on a daily basis. The first is helping them tune their instrument while the second is to act as a metronome. The Metronome part is easily explained. The musician picks a tempo like Allegro or Moderato and has the chance to fine tune the beats per minutes until he is satisfied.
A click on the start button will start the Metronome and it will produce a clicking noise according to the tempo selected. Alternatively a flashing sound can be selected instead.
The second important feature is the option to tune instruments which is giving the user several choices. He can opt to play the A above middle C on the piano, select another note from all 88 piano keys, or pick an instrument from 28 instruments that are included in the software.
Each note of a selected instrument can be altered so that it fits the user's needs. Music Assistant is available for Mac OS 10.2 or later and Windows XP. It will probably also work on Windows Vista.Advertisement
