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
I never did an app review before, but this one deserves it. I tried other ear training apps and this one is by far the best one. The method is easy and well explained, the interface is user friendly and there are plenty of exercises for free, ranging from beginner to advanced level. Also, there are no ads whatsoever! Last but not least, the training you get here is very useful when playing an instrument. I play the cello and this app has helped me a lot so far. Very recommended! Thanks.
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)
Very easy, the learning curve isn't too arduous (I have a pantonal hearing impairment, but with digital hearing aids I can hear at about 40 db, 70 on higher frequencies)... Two questions, though: 1⃣ what's "Mark One?" I can't identify at all the type of instrument used for this plugin. 2⃣ would it be possible to split statistics depending on the instrument selected? For example, I had better results with Classical Guitar than with any other instrument (I have 8 instruments so far, in my case).
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.
