Relationship between basic beat , beat , meter and rhythm

The basic beat in music is the subdivision of the flowing time by regular impulses. Other names are basic pulse or pulse . The basic beat is closely linked to the meter of music, because it denotes that metric level that appears to be particularly emphasized (cf. meter and basic beat ).

The speed of the basic beat is an important factor in determining the tempo of a piece of music. Usually this is an indication of beats per minute ( beats per minute ). The best-known aid for determining the basic beat is the metronome .

If the sequence of basic beats is grouped in recurring numbers, so that every 2nd, 3rd, 4th etc. impulse is emphasized (more pronounced than others), the beat is created ; in this, each beat of the basic beat represents a differently accented beat .
