The BBS-1 BodyBeat Sync Metronome from Peterson transmits tempo in audio, visual, and tactile playback modes. The built-in speaker or 1/8" headphone jack provides audio playback of the click while the backlit LCD displays the tempo visually. The included Vibe Clip can be attached to your shirt, waist area, shoe top, or sleeve to produce a tactile beat silently with vibration.

The wireless functionality allows you to sync the tempo and patterns on your BodyBeat unit with two or more other units within a 75-yard radius. Any unit can act as a Master or Sync device, and groups can be formed within the same radius without interference from each other.

The BodyBeat can also be controlled via MIDI tempo maps created by either your DAW or the free online application on the BodyBeat Sync website. The unit can connect to your computer with its mini-USB port and is capable of storing up to nine MIDI tempo maps in its internal memory.

Metronome Engine

The BodyBeat Sync features a complex metronome engine capable of producing endless combinations of rhythmic patterns. Meter or Time Signature parameters are independently adjustable allowing 1 to 12 beats per measure over a beat value of 2, 4, 8 or 16.
Subdivision selections are based on the chosen beat value and will display correctly notated for 1 beat. Selectable Accent Patterns vary upon the number of beats per measure and allow for the division of longer beat counts into groups of 2 and 3 (every possible combination included). The tempo can be adjusted from 10 to 280 BPM

Practice Patterns

There are 14 additional Presets beyond the initial 100 user definable memory locations in the BodyBeat Sync that are named rather than numbered. These additional presets are two-bar patterns in which only the tempo setting is editable and storable. 2-3 and 3-2 presets of Son, Rumba and Bossa clave patterns are provided in 4/4 and 6/8. Common bell patterns such as Cascara and Agogo are also available in both clave directions
