       klick  is an advanced command-line based metronome using the JACK sound
       server. It allows you to define complex tempo maps for entire songs  or
       performances.  A single meter and tempo can be specified on the command
       line, while more complex tempo maps can be read from plain text  files.
       Alternatively,  it's  also  possible  to run klick in interactive mode,
       where the tempo can be changed at runtime using  the  keyboard,  or  to
       follow tempo information read from JACK transport.


       -f filename
              load tempo map from file

       -j     no tempo map, just follow jack transport

       -n name
              set jack client name

       -p port,..
              jack port(s) to connect to

       -P     automatically connect to hardware ports

       -o port
              OSC port to listen on

       -i     interactive mode

       -W filename
              export click track to audio file

       -r samplerate
              sample rate of export (default: 48000)

       -s number
              use built-in sounds:
              0: square wave (default)
              1: sine wave
              2: noise
              3: acoustic bell/click

       -S file[,file]
              load sounds from file(s)

       -e     no emphasized beats

       -E     emphasized beats only

       -v mult[,mult]
              adjust playback volume (default: 1.0)

       -w mult[,mult]
              adjust playback pitch (default: 1.0)

       -t     enable jack transport

       -T     become transport master (implies -t)

       -d seconds
              delay before starting playback

       -c bars
              pre-roll. use -c 0 for 2 beats
