I was wondering if anyone who owns the 515 cam chime in about the metronome features?

Does it have patterns? I'm returning my Roland FP90X and gonna try the Yamaha but I loved how the Roland had a bunch of metronome patterns and not just the standard 1/4 note ticks. Is this a feature on the Yamaha?

From my local music store, on the P-515:

Quote
The P-515 comes complete with forty different and simple rhythm patterns (drums and bass accompaniment) that are perfectly suited to many types of music , letting you spice up your performance with some backing musicians, make practice more interesting, or open up your creative flow with inspiring new ideas.

That should be better than most metronomes.

Thank you for that response. I did see that it comes with the rhythm accompaniment options which I will enjoy for random playing and improvising. However, I was mostly curious if the metronome has specific patterns I can follow to practice independence and playing a note in each tick of the pattern. I suppose I could still do that to the drum patterns depending on what they sound like.

I did see that in the manual but it didn't specificy if it has adjustments for ticks on 1/8, 1/16, 1/4 notes and/or any other variations.

- Page 41

Mentions turning on metronome and allows setting tempo/BPMs or as you say “ticks”

- Page 42

Mentions setting the Time Signature and shows a simple chart * of how sample note values - Half, Quarter, dotted Quarter and Eighth - relate to Time Signature and BPMs, and also notes that if the Metronome is set to “crotchet” mode, Note Type is fixed at Quarter Note regardless of the Time Signature. The alternative to Crotchet mode is “bpm mode” which is shown on page 96.

Page 42 also mentions turning on “bell” setting so that the first tick of a given time signature is the sound of a bell, for example “ding, tick, tick, tick” for 4/4 time.

- Page 43 mentions the use of Rhythms.


- Page 96 shows the menu tree relative to parameters involved with metronome and rhythm functions.

* As to your specific question, 1/2 notes apply to 2/2 time signature from 3 to 250 ticks per minute; 1/4 notes apply to several time signatures - 7/4, 6/4, 5/4, 4/4, 3/4, 2/4 & 1/4 from 5 to 500 BPMs; dotted 1/4 notes apply to 6/8, 9/8 and 12/8 time signatures with an even number of BPMs; 1/8 notes apply to 3/8 & 7/8 timing with even number BPMs.

Thank you. That's helpful
