“Have you a correct metronome? Mine is correct. It always gives as many beats to the minute as the number on which the weight is placed. For instance, if the number is 50, it gives 50 beats to

the minute; if 60 = 60. And, as far as I know, this is the test of correctness. Perhaps you would try your metronome in this respect.” —Robert Schumann

Just more proof that believing people counted in “double beat” is completely fucking retarded even though experts already have so much proof that adding this one is a bit redundant.
