How to use Soundbrenner Pulse in your practice routine
Thousands of musicians use the Soundbrenner Pulse every day to improve their rhythm. In this guide, you’ll learn how to use Soundbrenner Pulse in your practice routine to keep in time with your music and feel the beat.
Here are three creative ways to incorporate the Soundbrenner Pulse into your practice routine.
1. Start slow and get fast
The Soundbrenner Pulse makes it easy to develop your speed as a musician, regardless of your instrument. You can use the Pulse to improve playing a phrase, scale or lick that you’re struggling with. Start off slow and simply twist the wheel to increase the BPM. Once you’ve mastered playing your current tempo, gradually increase the speed.
2. Set accent markers
The Soundbrenner Pulse allows you to customize every individual beat. You can use this to your advantage by setting up accents to indicate the start of a bar or the beginning of a phrase. Over time, your dynamics will improve automatically playing the first note of each bar with an accented feel.
3. Train your rhythm by disabling beats
Practicing with a metronome is essential for developing your rhythmic abilities, but there will invariably be occasions when you need to play without one (for example during an improvised section). The Soundbrenner app allows you not only to customize your accents, but also to remove vibrations and clicks entirely for a specific beat.
You can use this feature to improve your sense of timing when it comes to anticipate the next beat in a bar. To do this, head into the Player section, and then set the strength of beat 2 to 0 while beat 3 and 4 to 1. This will enable vibrations only for beats 1, 3 and 4, which means you will have to rely on your own internal clock to keep the tempo in between beats 1 and 3. Do this every day to improve your sense of rhythm.
