My electronic drums can monitor my pad strike accuracy to help improve timing. Is there a software program that does this for a midi guitar interfaced with your computer? It would be an effective tool in helping guys develeop their chops.

    Welcome! Questions looking for a certain kind of product or tool are not covered here. If you want, you can edit this into an answerable question by, instead of focusing on software or interface, asking the broader question "How can I get data on how accurate my timing is." And as for improving it, good old metronome work is probably best! Apr 14, 2022 at 21:26
  • You can do it entirely in audio. Plus it's a bit pointless looking back afterwards to see if you were any good, you need to know right whilst you're playing. Use a strict tempo drum machine & tempo-synced delay. If you're good you can get it to phase. If you're bad it will spiral out of control. See this answer - music.stackexchange.com/a/120838/12556

  • I disagree about pointlessness of looking back. Pointing out where mistakes happen supports practicing and for a lot of people seeing a score and how it increases when they practice is a huge motivator. There's also a difference between tempo drifting and just clumsy timing without the drift.
