Can I run Bounce on my Computer / laptop / tablet / netbook?

If you can install normal desktop programs for Windows, you should be fine. It can run on XP, Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8 and 8.1, but NOT Windows RT 8.1..

Linux users - you can now run Bounce on Linux under Wine - see Aaron Wolf's post: Bounce Metronome now fully functions under WINE!!. and FAQ: Bounce Metronome on Linux using Wine

Bounce can't run on Windows RT 8 or 8.1 (which you get on some tablets) or Windows CE.

Rhythm phasing, as in the music of Steve Reich: same rhythm in all sixteen parts. The other parts are faster than the first part by 101%. 102%, 103%, ..., 115%. Played on harmonics - find out more »
So for instance, it runs on the Surface Pro but not on the Surface RT.

Also, it can't run on Android, or iPad Also won't run on iPhone, or Windows phone or other mobile devices.

Techy detail: the ARM processors on these devices can't run IBM x86 machine code, which is what Bounce is compiled into. So far, I've not heard of any way around that. It might however be able to run on Intel Macs under Wine some day, because they run x86 code like Linux machines (I hope to work on this in near future).

Please see the Mac, Mobile and Multi-Platfrom FAQs. where you can add your name to a mailing list to be notified of future developments.

Testimonials, reviews, discussions

“ It is quite simply the most remarkable software for rhythmic music study. Check out the enormous selection of Bounce Metronome demonstration videos which are educationally and artistically valuable on their own merit!...

Bounce Metronome is one of the most absolutely amazing and stunning music programs in existence.

It starts with a deceptively simple idea that is beyond compare: the very best visualization for rhythm ever. Add to this support for complete range of swing, accents, polyrhythms, additive rhythms, huge numbers of options to adjust every detail, and some incredible harmonic just intonation rhythmic fractal evolutionary craziness at the advanced level, and much more” (Aaron Wolf (guitar teacher))
