We are using a giant vibration motor 700% stronger than that of an average smartphone. Here are tips that help you to utilize it's full potential.
1. Change the vibration settings in our app
You can assign different vibrations to each accent marker. Simply go to "Settings" -> "Soundbrenner Pulse" -> "Vibrations". You will notice that the more powerful vibrations have a slightly longer duration and that the weaker vibrations feel more distinct. Experiment to find out which one works best for you.
2. Try out different body positions
Factors that influence a person’s perception of vibration strength can vary based on one’s: anatomy, instrument of choice or simply - personal preference. Be sure that you have worn and tested the Soundbrenner Pulse on the recommended body positions (as seen in the starter guide) in order to determine which configuration suits you best.
3. Make sure the Soundbrenner Pulse is strapped tightly
The stronger the Soundbrenner Pulse gets pressed onto your skin, the better you can feel the vibration. So always try to wear it as tight as possible while still maintaining a good comfort level for yourself.
4. Give it time
Just like players who never played with a click need some time to get used to it and reap its benefits, the same also applies for the Soundbrenner Pulse. The Soundbrenner Pulse will help you improve your rhythm and reach a new level of excellence. It is, however, a tool and like all tools, it requires proper use and hard work to be effective. Keep this in mind as you learn to pick up the beat by simply feeling it. It truly can change the way you make music!
Accents help you understand at which position you are in the bar that you are playing.
The Metronome by Soundbrenner supports 4 different types of accents. Simply tap on an accent marker to change it to the next accent type.
Accent marker with 0 fillde in bars are silent. Accent markers with 1, 2 or 3 filled in bars have the settings you assign to them.
You can flexibly assign Sounds as well as Camera and LED Flashes to each accent marker.
If you have a Soundbrenner Pulse you can also assign Vibrations and Lights.
Songs can be created from inside the Song Library. You can enter the song name and it will contain information about BPM, Time Signature, Subdivision and Accents. You can organize multiple songs into a setlist.
Setlists can be created from inside the Setlist Library. Setlists are a collection of songs. You can freely organize the order of each song.
Both songs and setlists can be loaded into the Metronome tab. This allows you to easily play them repeatedly without having to re-create them every single time. For example, you can preprogram an entire practice or performance session this way.
