What’s New

Version 1.1.11

NEW FEATURES
* Exercise setup in melodic exercises: you can now hear your selection for range options or the "Play tonic of key" options.
* New custom pitch/vocal range in both Preferences and Exercise Setup.
* Singing exercises: the app is now better at ignoring metronome sounds that are picked up by the mic.
* Sight-Singing: you can now turn off the metronome if other voices are played, so that you can follow those instead of the metronome.
* Singback and Clapback: when listening to your answer, the options "Play lead-in" and "Play metronome during question" are respected.
* Rhythmic Dictation now also has the exercise option "Auto repeat question"
* New option in Preferences > Other options: "Use native HTTPS requests". This can be used to solve connection problems.


LANGUAGES
* New language: Hungarian translation (App and Beginner’s Course only)
* Russian: Fixed wrong tone name "C"
* English: In the Jazz Workshop “Chord Identification, the chord "mi(maj7,b5)" has been renamed "Dim,maj7". Also, all custom chords now begin with an uppercase.
* French General Workshops: Revised the Interval Singing workshop to exclude movable-do solfege and use interval names instead.
* French: minor revision of the App text
* Russian and Polish: some lesson descriptions weren’t displayed correctly. This should now be fixed.
* German, Italian and Chinese: Fixed a few typos and spelling errors in the Beginner’s Course.



BUG FIXES
* We fixed a problem with "Auto Submit Answer" in Melodic Dictation: if enabled while using a pitch-only exercise, it would still be enabled when switching to an exercise with rhythmic note values. However, the setting was removed from Exercise Options, so you could not disable it again.
* The “Play lead-in” option in Exercise Options for Singing exercises is now grayed out when a question requires that it is enabled. Before, the option was available but changing it had no effect.
* Exercise Setup with a custom pitch range: tapping on the lower range option would play the wrong interval. This has now been fixed.
* The pitch detection system could display an error on rare occasions.
* Exercises where tempo was controlled by an Exercise Setup: changing the tempo in Exercise Options only worked if done while recording an answer. It would then be reset on each attempt or if the lesson intro was displayed again. Now the tempo is only reset when a new question is generated.
* In-App store: the purchase buttons with prices could take a long time to load. It should go much faster now.
* The Beginner’s course used half-note rests in 3/4 meters. This is common but not officially recommended, so it now uses two quarter-note rests instead.
* Sight reading exercises: in rare situations, it could stop recording after one bar.
* Lesson Introduction: better spacing of notes on staff.

BEST ON THE MARKET. YOU NEED THIS.

I never write reviews. This is my first ever. But when an app comes along that changes the way I practice, helps the way I teach, and provides a new way of hearing music, I couldn’t help but do a review. The exercises are so well thought out, and have so much to offer both the complete beginner and the most world class musicians alike. Being an instructor at Nashville Music Academy, I can say this app has developed my ear and my students ear to a level that would have taken many more years to develop, if at all, without it. Do yourself a favor, take the step, make the commitment to complete all the exercises, and watch yourself grow as a musician like you never thought possible. Albeit this is a tool, and what you do with it is up to you, but through this training you can truly take the phrase “if you can hear it, you can play it” to heart. Thank you to the entire EarMaster team.

Thanks a lot for your kind words!

Visible improvement

It’s an extremely useful app, I can see an obvious improvement after about three weeks of using it. I’m currently using the exercises (after purchasing the bundle). It’s really worth the money imho. One thing I’ve noticed though that I didn’t like so far is in the Chord inversions exercise when I make a mistake whether it was an augmented chord and not a diminished one, it logically should show the difference between the different chord types for the SAME key in my opinion and not based on the first note you hear. Or is there some kind of a setting where this can be changed?
Otherwise, so far, I’m a very happy user. I use it daily for 45-60 minutes doing two rounds of each exercise type in my current exercise set.

EarMaster is really helping me a lot!

EarMaster is not just for the youth and teens, but I love it and I am an older adult just now getting into music. I have a lot of catching up to do and EarMaster has tons of lessons designed to give users a thorough background from the basics on up. And all this for a nominal cost. Additionally, on occasion I have some technical, music-related questions and each time I have asked about something, I got a prompt and thorough response. I have much respect for this app and the people who put it together as well as what it can do to help others to become more musically talented. Hope this is helpful. Take care...
