Clear Pitch explains and teaches perfect pitch, also known as absolute pitch. A user can expect to develop absolute pitch using this product, as well as improving other pitch coding abilities such as pitch memory, perfect piano and relative pitch.
Clear Pitch is suitable for children, adults, musicians and non musicians. Anyone can use Clear Pitch for its cognitive and tonal benefits.
The mechanics and algorithms of Clear Pitch are complex, but the usage is simple: Just press play and listen. You will develop better clarity in pitching and tonal hearing, and you will find your musical ability related to hearing will improve dramatically.
Perfect / absolute pitch ear training is explained clearly for the first time so you will learn and understand:
1) What it is,
2) How it works,
3) What you are trying to achieve,
4) How to achieve it.
This approach is entirely different to all other products that attempt to 'give' a user perfect pitch but provide no explanation as to how the brain actually processes and learns the skill, and no system to do so.
Clear Pitch is the final chapter in ten years of academic research and vast quantitative and qualitative research, and includes the application of the findings of academics such as Dr. Daniel J. Levitin and Professor Diana Deutsch, leading exponents of absolute pitch theory. In short, Clear Pitch works differently.
In our research of all perfect pitch applications available they divide into three types:
1) Most (99%) are simply testing devices to see if you have the ability and with the hope that the user may possibly improve with repeated testing.
2) A few attempt to guide the listener toward hearing the unique quality of a pitch with claims that some pitches sound 'twangy' or 'mellow'. This approach is interesting but has no labelling component and consequently hasn't produced any convincing results.
3) The third group uses mnemonic cues such as colours to hopefully stimulate recognition of the chromas. This is probably the closest match, but is too esoteric and still doesn't institute the simple labelling required. When you hear 'C' you want to think 'C', not 'blue'.
All these systems overlook the actual mechanism required to develop the ability, which is the neural installation of a C.L.R. or chroma-label relationship. A C.L.R. is a neural association between a pitch and its name. Clear Pitch installs a C.L.R. in memory. CLEAR stands for Chroma Label Encoding and Retrieval. A chroma is the sound colour of a pitch, and a Label is it's name. Encoding means to learn, and Retrieval means to remember. Clear Pitch is a chroma labelling system which results in a user being able to identify the name of all chromas or pitches in the chromatic scale by sound alone without reference. This is perfect pitch (absolute pitch / A.P.)
Clear Pitch contains a tutorial and on board instructions throughout the application of learning algorithms, that will explain and create a C.L.R. as you listen, and which leads to the perception of musical notes along with their names, or to be able to name a pitch without reference.
The C.L.R. is installed via mnemonic memory devices called tonal linguistic cues that stimulate the association of the chroma and its label. T.L.Cs are delivered via 4 central modes: Active Encoding, Passive Encoding, Active Retrieval, Passive Retrieval. Encoding creates the C.L.R. going in to your mind and retrieval stimulates the C.L.R. going out. Passive modes don't require any particular attention so you can listen while day dreaming or sleeping. Active modes are most effective when used interactively, but can also be listened to passively.
There is simply nothing available to date that comes as close to effecting absolute pitch as Clear Pitch does. Happy pitching with Clear Pitch.
Major sound update. New hybrid human-synth sounds. Users found the Yamaha voices unnatural, though in pitch & time, so we combined them with a studio vocalist recorded sound set, for the natural tone of real voice with the accuracy of synth voice. NB: vocal lyrics either human or synth are never entirely in tune re natural pitch variation but in Clear Pitch you are tuning to the instrument, with the lyrics there to assist mnemonically and for paired-associate learning, not as a reference pitch.
Ratings and Reviews
Needs more sounds...
Starts with just piano sounds needs other instruments to further testing the ear with. also maybe expand the octaves toward the extremes on the piano...it is only two octave range...also be nice to have sheet music for the 12 songs...so far I enjoy it just wish you could change to saxophone or flute or some other instrument...
Ya’ll were not kidding!
This is truly the best tool out there for developing perfect pitch. I’ve really done my research. It’s better than David Lucas Burge’s method. It’s only .99 cents too! Only thing lacking would be to extend it to develop chord progressions, melodic dictation, relative pitch training, inversions, scales etc. Some of the other main areas to developing a complete ear. I hope to see a clear pitch deluxe version or something like that one day. I would purchase in a heartbeat! Thank you so much! -Parker Nettle
One of a kind
Definitely haven’t seen another app like this. Well thought out and very thorough. It’s early stages for me but it’s definitely already producing interesting results.
