mDecks Ear Training 1 for iOS

By mDecks Music $2.99

Developer's Description

*** It is way better to PLAY what you HEAR than to hear what you play!***This app is great for music students learning an instrument, or in choir, and it uses a particularly interesting approach, not yet seen in the many other ear training apps on the market: You will train your ear by looking for the correct sound in a set of up to six different options.The best feature is that musical elements, such as intervals or triads, are presented not only ALONE but also IN CONTEXT, so you will have to look for the sound that creates the requested musical element when combined with the background music.The app also has an option to request the element in music notation where you will need to use your music theory knowledge and/or have perfect pitch to find the right answer.Can you hear and identify all intervals, triads and sevenths?Can you find the right one in a group of up to six different ones?Can you identify them in context, embedded in the background music?mDecks Ear Training 1 focuses on Intervals, Triads and SeventhsA set of circles containing musical elements in a class (interval, triad, rhythm, melody, etc) will be shown on the screen. You will have to listen to them and decide which one contains (or creates) the requested musical element.Elements will be presented alone and in context: In advanced stages you will have to find the circle that makes the requested element when combined with the background music!mDecks Ear Training will guide your study step by step, increasing the level's difficulty as your hearing improves from Beginner to Master level.There are 6 Stages, each stage contains 6 Levels: Listen&Learn, Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, Expert, Master, and each level contains a set of exercises that you will need to conquer to access the next one. More than 120 sets of exercises!In each exercises the app detects how well you are performing to guide you through the entire set of levels and stages. Once you've finished the entire app you will be a Master at recognizing intervals, triads and sevenths-----Stages in mDecks Ear Training 1:Stage 1: Intervals (melodically up, melodically down, harmonically)Stage 2: Intervals in Context (several soundtracks at different levels in all keys)Stage 3: Triads (melodically up, melodically down, harmonically)Stage 4: Triads in Context (several soundtracks at different levels in all keys)Stage 5: Seventh Chords (melodically up, melodically down, harmonically)Stage 6: Sevenths in Context (several soundtracks at different levels in all keys)----Features:Study Modes:Guided Study Mode: The app controls the levels availability based on your progressFree Study Mode: You can play any stage and level freely.Two Play modes: You may choose between to play modes1.
