Guitar Player Magazine says: "This ingenious super metronome was developed by funky-as-hell Sco sideman Avi Bortnick. It will leave out beats randomly to force you to strengthen your own inner time-keeping muscles, and it has other cool features for odd meters, drum machine-style patterns, and more... this is an awesome learning, grooving, solidifying tool."
Strengthen your inner sense of rhythm! Time Guru is the only metronome with the ability to mute its sound at random, in sequenced patterns, or both, so that you can assess whether you tend to rush or drag or loose your place with odd meters. Time Guru can periodically leave you on your own so that you strengthen your own internal sense of time, rather than relying on the constant, rigid, external time keeping of a metronome. It's like training wheels that sometimes come up off the ground.
Time Guru also features:
-the ability to play in different time signatures or sequences of time signatures
-create rhythmic drum-machine like patterns
-save presets for tempo, meter, sound and muting-
-35 loud sound sets;
-Human or robot voice counting in English, Chinese, French, German or Russian - great for teaching!
-tap tempo (5 to 300 BPM range)
-super accurate, rock-solid timing via a customized audio engine.
And of course it can function as a normal metronome.
NoTreble.com says: "I love the aesthetic and layout of Time Guru. It’s very simple and elegant. Time Guru also offers ability to set randomness of your subdivisions (great for testing your internal clock)….There is one thing that Time Guru does that I absolutely love, and for which, this app will always live on my iPhone – at the top of the screen, you will see a series of numbers (1-7). When you press a number, it is set first in a sequence and you can choose a subdivision that will then repeat that number of times (or set it to rest that number of times). Sound confusing? It isn’t, because the layout is so simple. Every time you press a new number, it is set next in the sequence and you choose your continue to choose your subdivisions."

*Toggle mute a meter, without deleting.
*Better note/rest graphics.
If you want to work on your time, this is the app for you. I use it every time I practice.
Very confusing, too complicated, and not intuitive.
Good app, but it needs to be able to get louder. It’s hard to hear when playing trumpet.
Buy the full version of PRO METRONOME! Not guru, pro metronome is clean and awesome and can do the fancy silence beat thing. This one is ugly and has no down beat.
Love idea, really messy
I literally never write reviews for apps. I’m a percussionist and have used dozens of metronome apps over the years. Once you learn how to setup groupings and patterns, guru is incredibly simple and incredibly powerful. Recommend to all my students and colleagues.
Well done people.
it’s only been 6 months now :( great app!!! was worth the money .. .. but i can’t with good conscience, give this any more than 2 stars due to neglecting the iphone 10
No sounds at all.
This app really can make you focus on your groove and get more in touch with your internal sense of time. Super easy to use. After using it to practice some basic stick exercises I feel like I got a real workout. Nice app! Random mute is where it is at!
This app is amazing. It helps my timing a lot in ways that I couldn't even imagine - I'm not even a drummer -. I recommended this app to my drummers friends (some of them are famous), and they also LOVE it !!!!! 👍👍
Rarely do I feel compelled to write review, but this app is so good I had to. You can practice anything with this, anything. Working on your time having one click every 8 bars or learning strange hits in 11/16 with this app is easy and intuitive. Could not be happier with how it works. If you need a metronome, get this app.
Tap tempo is very handy. But of particular value is the muting to help check your ability to keep time. Muting can be random or a specific pattern. I sent a couple of questions and got useful answers back right away. I highly recommend this app!
I am a 4/4 type of person and needed something to enhance my confidence with different time meters while having a little door for exploration as well. After finding this app, I knew it will keep me busy for many years to come! The possibilities of combining multiple time meters and their sub divisions is quite limitless..you can also add rests and create different accents etc. there are also many types of click sounds and even a counting voice.. I mean, what else could you ask from a metronome?? This app is ridiculous and the price is right! My quest is over-thank you.
One in awhile an app comes that blows you away and is insanely useful. This is one. Support it!
Tight time trumps all, somehow utilitarian and sexy all at once. This app is a great way to get tight and stay tight. Beyond that jamming along with it—say, on an unamplified 335—is just a lot of fun.
Great way to maintain time during rhythmically easy warm ups and literature too. This may be my saving grace...
This is by far the most useful and precise metronome for iPhone. Great user interface as well. 5 stars.
Intuitive interface, endless combos to drop clicks & randomize. Also easy to combine different time signatures in the same setting. An invaluable tool to practice steady time. Well worth the low price.
Very easy and intuitive to use, nice variety of sounds. The counting voices are a great touch.
