mDecks Ear Training 1 for iPad

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 will develop you musical ear by using a different and new approach. You will learn how a musical element sounds (alone and in context) by searching for them.

mDecks Ear Training 1 focuses on Intervals, Triads and Sevenths

A 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

Free Study Mode: You can play any stage and level freely.

Two Play modes: You may choose between to play modes
1. Drag over: you listen to the sounds behind the circles by dragging a play button over them and then tap to make your choice.
2. Tap & Hold: you listen by tapping and holding on a circle and you make your choice by double tapping.

Endurance Mode on/off: The next exercises starts immediately after.

Music Notation on/off: You may enable music notation (when available) if you want to recognize musical elements using prefect pitch (if you have it) and/or music theory (by recognizing the requested item from the staff)

Wave String: You may view the signature wave of an interval, triad or seventh if you want to use a visual input as an aid in memorizing the sound.

Volume Balance: control between the background music (context) and the sound behind the circles.

Statistics: A record of your performance is kept in the stats panel (one for the free mode and one for the guided mode)
