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)
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
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.
Yepp. It works. Im quite amazed to be honest. 60%of my brain. 40% of the method. I always wanted to learn this skill, but i didnt like the methods until this one. Alain is really smart with splitting the octave in 2. I managed to score 100% easily on major octave many scales, in like 5 days. 10 minutes a day. I saw that singing the notes helps strongly, i guess it remains stuck in memory easier.
Fun and flexible What makes this app most amazing is how many configurable options there are. I'm a very slow learner, so I need to ramp things up gradually. With other ear training programs, I quickly become overwhelmed, and I'm scoring at near-random on the exercises. This app will let me pick exactly which notes to practice, and it even gives me information on WHICH notes to practice. I'm never bored or overwhelmed, and always feel I'm making progress.
Very useful for a beginner like me I've been using this for awhile and getting better, although slowly. My only problem is the difficulty ramps up too fast. First octave of C- major was fine. Next step was random octaves and it was too difficult. It would be nice to be able to create practice scales an octave up or down. Also, if you can increase the occurrence of notes that you are having trouble, then training would go faster.
