Live BPM Listener
#1
I did a quick forum search and couldn't find this requested anywhere yet....

Last weekend I played a musical theatre show and used MSP (as I have for my last ~25 shows).  As the drummer with a music director who is also playing keyboard, many times it falls on me to keep the tempo in place of the MD.  Usually it's not an issue, but for some reason on 2 songs this weekend the tempo was really getting bogged down - some combination of the pit and the dancers plus some difficult lick was slowing everything way down (from 210 to ~180).  After dress rehearsal, I remembered I have a phone app called LiveBPM that uses my internal microphone to pick out the tempo it hears and displays it on screen.  sometimes it doesn't pick the right note length for the pulse (so 210 in 4/4 reads as 105), but in any case it gives me a good sense of where I started and a real time visual if I'm starting to drag at all so I can keep it up.  It was super helpful.

BUT

It's just another device I have to have mounted somewhere in my field of view.  Wouldn't it be nice to be able to have that information as an overlay on my page with a control for location and opacity so I can see it at the same time as reading my music?  I think that would be really nice.  thus, a feature request.

(FYI, I'm also going to reach out to the dev of that app and suggest an overlay mode (similar to FaceBook chat heads) with opacity.  or maybe a team-up as a purchasable plug-in?

thanks!
