The world is changing and it is changing very fast! With the fresh new
technology, new competitors are appearing in every industry. New products are
also introduced. While many people in the industry have been
addressing accessibility issues for years, most have never given them much

In a very recent trend, all developers want to make their software visually

fully accessible?—No, probably not. It comes with lots of pro features
like, all time signatures including odd, any number of subdivisions, Swing
and lilt, drum rudiments, polyrhythms, additive rhythms, tap tempo,
fractional BPM, etc. The cheap price and several discount schemes make it
I will strongly encourage everyone to check out this nice tool. Believe me,
you will be amazed!
