    Hey Student469162, Did you figure it out? As mentioned by Joe A. , a metronome is just audible reference. IE: What do you notice when you hit play on your DAW with the metronome turned on? 1. I hear a sound with a steady pulse. The pulse has a rhythm that sounds like 1 loud sound and 3 smaller sounds after it. 2. I notice the timeline in my DAW is synchronized with the steady pulse. For example: We only hear a pulse (metronome) when the playhead hits a vertical line. 3. I notice that every vertical line in my DAW represents a metronome sound. No matter what tempo, key signature, etc... Ultimately the metronome is there to help keep you in synch with your session. Some DAWs allow you to change the metronome sound to something different, try it out! I hope that helps. Cheers!
