What’s New

Version 1.0.18

[New Features]
+ In continuous call-response mode, sound effects are now automatically disabled.
+ Melodic Dictation: rests are no longer part of the evaluation because they imply a wrong note duration which already led to a penalty. This however also means that additional or missing trailing rests no longer count either (it was a problem in e.g. Jazz Workshops lesson 1.4)
+ Melodic Dictation with pitch-only melodies: if you enter more tones than expected, you are now subtracted a half correct pitch for that.
+ Real-time exercises (sing-back, clap-back and sight-reading): a question can now be repeated and answered an unlimited number of times, but only the first answer counts in the results. Additional attempts are for practicing and self-evaluation only.
+ Chord Identification: with input of individual tones on the Piano, Guitar and Functional Keyboard, EarMaster is now much better at picking the right accidentals.
+ Interval Comparison now transcribes questions without using double accidentals.
+ Melodic Dictation: the staff now gets a larger portion of the screen.

[New Languages]
+ Russian (except Jazz Workshops)
+ Polish

[Bug fixes]
- Melody Sing-back in continuous call-answer mode: After repeating the same question and then automatically moving on to a new question, some extra tones were played.
- Melodic Dictation: after a sequence of certain lessons, the app could enter into an error state with error messages about accidentals.
- The "Auto New Question" threshold setting was not working correctly.
- Melodic Dictation: when a melody from the score library is defined in C with accidentals, e.g. Blues Scale, EarMaster used to guess the wrong accidentals. The problem was seen in e.g. Jazz Workshops - Melodic Dictation - Lesson 1.1, question 2, which is using the C blues scale. The tone defined as Gb was inserted via the Piano as F#.
- Quarter note rest could be cut at the bottom in some cases.
- Double rests in auto-generated rhythms with certain configurations are now always correct.
- Remote control by MIDI-In has been disabled, as there is no interface to configure and disable it
- With longer notes and at lower tempo, the duration of pauses between notes could exceed length of a 16th note, which could be confusing in Rhythm Dictation exercises.
- Interval Singing: when answering wrong, it did not show the name of the interval that you gave as the answer.
- Interval Singing: "Unison" is no longer shown as "Unison (up)" (changed for both question and answer).
- Rhythm Clap-back in continuous call-response mode: when moving on to the next question, the first clap was sometimes played twice quickly after each other.
- Tapping a note to tie it to another one made it remain gray.
- Deleting a tied note caused the next inserted note to be tied too.

Near perfect

This is definitely the best ear training app that I have used. The exercises are excellent. The accuracy of the pitch detection is great. It would be absolutely perfect if the course content was structured in a similar way to Memrise. And if there were options to train in different temperaments. Even if the only alternative were just intonation. I am, however, quite happy with it as is.

Just what I need

I can sight read well (I play descant, treble, tenor and bass recorders in three amateur bands) but I haven’t been able to play by ear or sing. This app is great because I can progress at my own pace and I find it enjoyable. I’ve been using it for maybe 6 months and am making steady progress. Incidentally, I’m 70 years old so one is never too old to learn. Many thanks.

Great musical ear training!

This is a great app to train your ear in order to become a good musician. There are a few things missing but very good and it works well. It’s really making a difference
