F*** it, the name's probably taken, but I don't care. I'll cross that bridge if I come to it. Retronome is an Arduino metronome, not too dissimilar to a certain Dr Rhythm from Boss, like, the idea is a classic 70s DR box. Anyway, I've "built" one on Wokwi and coded it up. Still some basic features to add, and some code to make more readable, but hey, it's a start.

I could buy one from my fave music store, but where would be the fun in that? Besides, any coding and electronics build is a valuable exercise in practice, just like playing your songlist... at home... alone.

Which brings me to my reason for making Retronome, I need to practice to a clock, get my songs at a right tempo, get my feels tighter, but right. (Half time the metronome, play to the 2 and 4, develop your swing.) So, bleep, blip, blip, blip, bleep, blip, blip, blip.

Get the code, as it grows, here.
