Circuit operation:
CMos IC1 and IC2B quad AND gate form a 2.4576 MHz crystal oscillator plus a 2400 times divider. IC3A provides further division by 16, obtaining a 64 Hz stable frequency square wave. This frequency is multiplied by operation of Phase Locked Loop IC5, double decade divider IC4 and IC3B 4 bit binary divider, by the number set by three miniature BCD thumbswheel switches SW1, SW2 and SW3: units, tens and hundreds respectively.
Connecting, by means of SW5, Q1 base to pin 2 of IC6, we obtain after a 64 times division, the same frequency set by thumbswheel switches with quartz precision, and no need for a scale indicator.
Volume regulation of the pitch generator is obtained trimming resistor R5. In the same manner, with SW5 set to metronome, the small speaker reproduces the frequency set by thumbswheel switches but divided by 3840, thus obtaining beats per minute ratio
