Re: [Harp-L] Metronome question no harp content

You didn't mention what kind of metronome you have, but in most cases It's a practical matter of resolution. Try thinking about it using an extreme case:

The difference between 1bpm and 2bpm is 30 seconds per beat -- very easy to hear the difference.

But the difference between 240bpm and 241bpm, representing a small fraction of a second, would be difficult to hear, and depending on the technology being used, can be difficult or impossible to implement. Of course, state-of-the-art modern electronic devices have no problem with this, and most pro sequencers do offer fractional tempo settings. 

Hope that helps...
