Digital Fake Book's metronome produces a repeating audible pulse at the time set in the Tempo edit box in beats per minute. The tempo setting is saved with each song.
The tempo range of the metronome is 40bpm to 208bpm. If you enter a tempo outside this range, the actual tempo produced by the metronome will be limited to the highest or lowest it can produce.
The metronome can be started or stopped by clicking the Metronome button or pressing F11.
In addition to the sound, there is a visual indication for each beat.
The volume of the metronome can be set to one of 5 different levels by choosing Metronome Volume from the Options menu.
