ONOME OF MAELZEL. This instrument has a graduated pendulum, to whichis attached a sliding weight. The higher this weight TIME. 67 is moved upon the pendulum, the Diag. 17. slower are its vibrations; and thecontrary. When the weight cor-responds to the number 50, the vi-brations of the pendulum are theslowest; when it corresponds to160, they are the quickest. Allthe numbers on the instrumenthave reference to a minute of time.Thus, when the weight is placedat 50, fifty beats, or ticks, occurin a minte; when at 60, sixty beatsin a minute; when at 100, onehundred beats in a minute, &c.The engraving in the margin represents the instrumentin action. In reading, as a general rule, the time should bemarked on the metronome by whole measures — inother words, each measure should correspond to onetick of the instrument. In music, it is most convenient to mark the time onthe metronome in adagios, by quavers; in andantes, bycrotchets; in allegros, by minims; and in prestos, bywhole measures.
