FARMINGDALE, NY, June 2010Planet Waves is thrilled to announce the newly revamped, user-friendly app for iPhone & iPod Touch users: the ProTempo metronome application.  Newly enhanced and redesigned by the minds at Audiofile Engineering (creators of Chordmaster and FiRe - Field Recorder), ProTempo is the quintessential digital metronome for iPhone brought to you by Planet Waves, one of the D'Addario company's family of world-renowned musical instrument accessory brands.

Whether you're practicing, composing or recording, the ProTempo metronome app delivers unmatched utility and convenience for musicians at all levels.
