My own design

If you like to dabble in electronics, this circuit could help you pass the time. I designed it as a
class project when I was doing my electronics course a few years ago.

Yes! I did built a prototype and it does work. There’s no reason why it shouldn’t. The design is pretty
simple and anyone with a basic knowledge of digital electronics will be able to work it out with no
problem. There is one working metronone in Malta that was built from this circuit.

I know it can be improved upon with faster IC chips and multicolored LEDs etc, but I’ll leave that up to
you. Sorry, I don’t have a printed circuit board design for it. I dismantled it years ago and used the
parts for other projects. I now use computer software to generate flamenco rhythms to practice with.
