A couple of metronome questions
on: May 17, 2013, 18:38

Thanks for the metronome! One of the ensembles I sing with has a young accompanist who needs help setting tempos so I'll use it frequently. I encountered a couple of issues today though: our set for Saturday has a song in 2/2 time w/ half-note = 50. This doesn't appear to be supported, but while trying to set an equivalent tempo in 4/4, the keypad got stuck at the top of the metronome with only the lower half (the row with keys 4, 5, and 6 and below) visible. It covered all of the metronome controls and wouldn't budge. I couldn't shut down NextPage without powering down the iPad. :-(

I was really excited to play with the metronome so set tempos on every song in the set. All was well until I tried to use one of my accompaniment tracks with the iTunes player. It shut off after 20 seconds too! Obviously I wouldn't need both at the same time but it appears the only way to switch switch between performance and practice modes is to shut down NextPage. Is there an 'off' button for the metronome?

And since I'm asking tedious questions here, is there an easy way to switch between NextPage and the iTunes player? The demo at the Apple store showed how easy it was to swipe between apps but of course when you do that in NextPage, you've turned the page--literally! After starting an accompaniment track, I'd like to get back into my music before the intro is over. Any suggestions?

Thank you for your help and especially for NextPage. I actually bought an iPad specifically for sheet music and am so very glad I found your application. I use it every day!
