Continuing from my first iteration on a visual metronome, this is an improvement to simplify things while providing greater control in the UI for: tempo, cycles (bars), beats, and emphasis highlighting (nth). My intention is for this to evolve toward a metric modulation visualization.
I moved from the traditional European music notation of left to right / top to bottom, and used a more abstract top to bottom / left to right orientation. Most often I work with more bars than beats, so this worked nicely for laptop screen dimensions. Also, I enjoy nudging the musician away from the usual way we visually experience music.
