CountIn is an app designed to help you play along with music in your library. CountIn facilitates this process by creating a waveform of the music for visual reference. Provides a tools to mark places in the song and to speed up and slow down the rate of play.

The following are descriptions and explanations of the various parts of CountIn. If you need aditional help go http://countin.torimaru.com for more recent information about CountIn.

Waveform

The Waveform is a graphic interpretation of the music. While it’s not exact it provides a useful reference for where you are in a song.

Position Bar

The Position Bar is that little white verticle line near the left edge of the screen. This marks where you are in the song.

Marking Spots

Double Tap the Position Bar and a Marker will appear on the Waveform at that point.

Markers

Marker denote a particular spot in the music.

DELETING a Marker: Place your finger on the Marker you wish to delete and leave it there until you are asked if you would like to delete it.

MOVING a Marker: Place your finger on the Marker and wait a moment, then slide your finger left or right. NOTE: I’ve found it is much easier and more accurate to delete and create a new Marker than is is to adjust the position.

Songs Button

The Song Button presents the list of songs you have setup to play. Simpley tap the song you want and your ready to go.

Adding Songs

First tap the Songs button then Tap the “+” on the upper right of the screen. This brings up a list of your music. Find the song you want and tap it. This takes awhile, it is creating the Waveform. After it is done it takes you back to your list of songs.

Edit Button

The Edit Button allows you to turn on and off the count’s clicking sound. It also provides a means of customizing the count. Each beat of the count has a character and a time associated with it. There can be up to six beats. If the character is blank, it is not include, it is not a pause. Each beat is None, Whole, Half or Quarter.
