Adaptive Mode

Adapts to your skills: Set a tempo to start with, grab your instrument and start playing. Speed Upp will listen and react depending how precise you hit the beats. The tempo will increase until you start making too many mistakes, then slows down and tries again after a while. As you play along and challenge yourself, you will definitely see your results improving.

Graph Mode

Play along: Train your precision and speed by following the tempo which changes according to on-screen graph. You can use the built-in best-practice graph designed for optimal learning curve or use your own ideas by drawing a line with mouse.
