Excellent App Been loving this app since day one. A friend suggested it to me, and I've been using it every day since then. It has really helped me move forward with my ear training and ability to transcribe music. I thought it was too cheap for how much it's helped me, great to see new features and I'm happy to give some extra money for the new instruments and exercises. Keep up the excellent work! And a suggestion, maybe some chord identification in the future? Looking forward to see what comes next :)
Actually works. I get so much more out of listening to music already - it's like I have always listened to it as a foreign language, and now I know some of the words! Instrument packs were essential for me to learn to pull out the pitch from all the other qualities of the sound. The only thing missing in my view is a way to learn harmony, but that could be another thing altogether. Maybe in the months and years it will take me to become fluent in melodies, someone will come up with a way to use this same method to teach harmony.
It's one of the better ear training apps out there... But I can't seem to buy anything. Every time I try to buy new features, it tells me I don't have an Internet connection, yet here I am writing this review with my Internet connection.
This is a great app that really helps you learn to recognize every degree in a given scale, which is great for transcribing, learning solos, etc. As soon as I saw this method I recognized it was the Dick Grove method from 1970's ( splitting the scale in 2 equal parts) which I had started using recently with Books. So it really surprised me that this says it's the Alain Benbassat's method. Out of curiosity, do you know which one came first? Great app nevertheless
It's a really nice app, I recommend the download: I've been practicing for a small time and don't know if I'm having real progress, but it's fun and I will keep practicing. However, I think your random generator of notes is biased: what method do you use to generate random notes? Maybe you should check for better algorithms (e.g. the linear congruential generator)
Highly Recommended I noticed the progress immediately. Educational music apps (or any educational app for that matter) tend to be boring and slow-progressing. (That is to say that the learner has to spend a lot of time on it to notice any improvement on their part.) This app helped a lot more than I was expecting it to and I actually really enjoy using it. I was surprised at how quickly I noticed a difference. Also, all the purchases are optional and aren't prompted, and it's how apps like this are able to stay in business.
