- metronome or computer program as equivalent
This term is derived from the Italian word tempo, which in turn goes back to Latin tempus "time". The pace represents the speed of transition from one musical unit to another. Classical music uses several basic types: Largo and Adagio (slow), Andante and Moderato (moderately fast), Allegretto (fairly fast), Allegro, VIVACE (quick, lively), Presto (very fast). Often in the score indicate not only the name of momentum, but its speed in absolute units (e.g., 60 beats per minute may correspond to Andante).
Traditionally, to determine the tempo, use the metronome. A device consisting of a housing with a pendulum markings and hands with a weight that allows you to observe the frequency of vibrations of a certain rapidity (in absolute units – the number of beats per second). Shifting the weight down, you ask more fast paced, up – slower. The oscillation speed of the metronome of the arrow marked on it in a scale. The first oscillation should coincide with the first beat of the piece.
The problem of determining the rate rises not only to the performers of instrumental music, but also to the sponsors and handlers of electronic compositions. Of particular concern is the works with broken rhythm, namely, it characterizes the many directions of modern music – from drum and base to techno, from house to breakcore. There are many software programs the functionality of which includes measurement of the tempo (beat per minute) of the musical segment. These include programs for DJing VirtualDJ, FL Studio and their analogues. There are simple counters BPM (MixMeister BPM Analyzer, and others), which operate on the principle of a metronome.
Many controllers for DJing has a built BPM counters, but relying on them is not necessary. First, the accuracy of most of them is only 1 beats per minute (when temp 130 BPM gives the deviation of 0.77%, while faster – and even more). And secondly, one day you may be behind the decks, in which there is this device, and have to rely only on themselves. So it is recommended to use the BPM counters for self-check at the beginning of the track.
Advice 2 : How to identify female wavy parrot
When buying a new pet can be more difficult to ascertain their gender. The ability to correctly identify the female or the male in front of you, becomes extremely important if you decide to purchase a wavy parrot. The fact that the behavior and learning ability of these birds depends largely on their sex.

Pay attention to the cere parakeet. The so-called education of the skin, which is located at the top of the bird's beak. In males this area is usually blue or blue, whereas the cere of females often has a brownish tinge.

The cere of a young females first non-uniform and has white markings on a light-blue or light beige background. Also a sign that in front of you is a girl, can be a thin white border around the nostrils.
Look at the legs of the wavy parrot. Females are pinkish in color. And tarsi of the males have a bluish tinge. To determine the sex of a parrot is more accurate, better to look at them not individually, but when they are together.
Note the behavior of birds. Females behave less actively. This is especially noticeable in the unusual birds environment. Being in a new place, the males begin with the curiosity to learn about everything that is around them. Girls start to restore order in the cell. They kick out anything that looks unnecessary.
Listen to the singing parrot. Females usually sing less frequently. Their songs are much shorter and less beautiful. In addition, they are more difficult to training less often than males, begin to speak.
