Flamenco Metronome Compás 3.0
from Gerhard Graf-Martinez
This metronome comes packed with features including preset practice time structures including twelve beat. You will love the scrolling simple music sheets for the major flamenco rhythms, (buleria, soleá Siguiriya etc). It also comes with a three, six and four count which for use as a standard metronome. With a giant clock used to tick away the beat count it would greatly benefit all those looking to polish their Flamenco rhythm understanding.
The most striking thing about this metronome is it's sleek design which provides access to all its features at once. The clock keeping the count is very large and easy to read. Volume and Tempo are controlled using sliders with the tempo ranging from 0 to 270 beats per minute. If you are serious about your flamenco you really must check this one out.

My own design
If you like to dabble in electronics, this circuit could help you pass the time. I designed it as a class
project when I was doing my electronics course a few years ago.
Yes! I did built a prototype and it does work. There's no reason why it shouldn't. The design is pretty simple and anyone with a basic knowledge of digital electronics will be able to work it out with no problem. There is one working metronone in Malta that was built from this circuit.
I know it can be improved upon with faster IC chips and multicolored LEDs etc, but I'll leave that up to you. Sorry, I don't have a printed circuit board design for it. I dismantled it years ago and used the parts for other projects. I now use computer software to generate flamenco rhythms to practice with.
