I think it's safe to assume that we all regard Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters as a pretty good drummer, right? After graduating through the early days of grunge with Nirvana and forming his own band, he is now regarded with near superstar status and has been seen behind the drum kit for artists as diverse as Paul McCartney, David Bowie, Queens Of The Stone Age and Tom Petty as well as his own offshoot band, Them Crooked Vultures. However, despite this wealth of experience, Grohl was still taken aback when producer Butch Vig asked him to drum along to a metronome to keep correct time in the studio. The moral of this story, of course, is that even the best of 'em may need a little help sometimes. Which is why we want to introduce you to an iOS music application that will be more than a little help to the modern day musician. Cadenza bundles a highly accurate tuner, a versatile metronome and a pitch pipe into one fine package and provides musicians with a great little rehearsal tool that you can keep in your pocket whenever you need it.
