Specify a name for this instance of the metronome.

-f, --frequency Hz

Define the frequency of the "tick" in Hz.

-D, --duration msecs

Define the duration of the "tick" in milliseconds.

-a, --attack %-age

Define the duration of the attack phase of the "tick" as a percentage of the duration.

-d, --decay %-age

Define the duration of the decay phase of the "tick" as a percentage of the duration.

--b, --bpm bpm
