Excellent ear training app

I am really enjoying this app. It has helped me identify some gaps I have and provided me with a more deliberate way to improve my ear. I like the variety of options: intervals (melodic up and down, harmonic), chord identification, chord progressions, rhythm, melodic dictation, etc.

This app provides me two major benefits:
1. It will (hopefully) turn my pretty good ear into a great ear.
2. It is helping me get some structured ideas of how to teach ear training to my piano students. (Something I have struggled with for a long time)

It has definitely been worth the cost so far. Once I master the General Workshop exercises I will definitely be buying the Jazz Workshop.

Creating custom chords feature missing on IPAD

1. I own the PC/Mac version and you can create your own custom chords like polychords, tone clusters, random quintal quartal chords, and atonal stuff, however you want it, that’s one of the main reason I use this app, is the flexibility that on other app has. But that feature is not available on the Ipad version. I bought a ipad pro thinking that i can use it to train my ear wherever I go. I would totally pay some bucks to get that feature tho.

2. In earmaster 6, the entire piano keyboard is shown, but for some reason, in earmaster 7, the developers decided to only show the keyboard partially, and if you do chords and intervals that span over a few octaves, you have to constantly browse back and forth to input the answers, WHY?

It’s only a downgrade from earmaster 6. Now it’s still the best ear training app on the market, but it’s not as good of a experience compared to the previous version.

Developer Response ,

Hi, thank you for your feedback. It's actually the first iOS version, so I'm not sure it can be compared to a former version on Mac and PC :) We do have plans to make it possible to save custom chords and scales on iOS, so hopefully it will be available in a future update. The piano interface is always showing the octaves that are included in the questions so that the keys are large enough to be used with fingers. Is there something else you didn't like in the iOS app since you only give it 2 stars? Best regards, Quentin from EarMaster

Excellent but could use blog

I’d welcome a jazz blog wherein one could gather a feeling of how long it typically takes to master various jazz ear training exercises. Admittedly it takes me forever to master jazz chords and clap back rhythm exercises. Just wondering how others experience theses ear training jazz exercises. David
