Train to gain the coveted ability of perfect pitch through synesthetic associations. Perfect Pitch is designed to capitalize on both your implicit and explicit color-tone associations.

Absolute pitch, the ability to identify and re-create musical notes without a reference tone, may be developed and enhanced by associating pitches with other sensory stimulations, such as color and haptic feedback (specialized device vibrations).
Based on cognitive psychology, Perfect Pitch allows you to associate haptics & custom colors with each musical pitch and train yourself using songs, creating a cross-sensory experience known as synesthesia.

• Play pitches & songs while associated colors illuminate
• Train using fifteen built-in melodies, songs, & scales
• Colors and pitches are presented in the Circle of Fifths
• Choose custom color associations that feel right to YOU
• Soft haptics for natural notes; rigid haptics for sharps/flats
• Playback Settings allow training modifications for each song
• Organize the set & order of songs to practice from the Library

Perfect Pitch was originally developed by students at the Georgia Institute of Technology while working with ubiquitous computing researchers. However, this app is not affiliated with the Institute.

Mr. Ipodular ,

Exactly What I Needed

I recently started teaching myself how to sing and wanted to expand my musical ability... this is app is perfect! I feel like any musician, no matter your level of expertise, would benefit from this app. The design is not only visually appeasing and stimulating, but also its simplicity helps you practice pitch in the easiest way I’ve ever been taught/ told/ or tried. Honestly has me thinking- why hasn’t anyone created this yet?! Well now it’s here and I couldn’t be happier to practice music!

Developer Response ,

So glad to hear that you're enjoying Perfect Pitch! We certainly aim to please.

I don’t get it. Why are people saying this is good? It’s just little songs with notes and colors. How long would you have to watch this to get any association between the notes and colors and melodies? I’m guessing it would be way longer than most people would want to listen to these same songs. It doesn’t even have an opportunity for you to see if you’re gaining any pitch recognition. There’s no exercises, no feedback. Just little songs with a strange sounding synthesizer that isn’t even musically pleasing. They’re definitely songs that would keep playing in your mind - ear worms - but you’d have to listen and watch for quite some time to make the pitch association. I mean, quite some time! I have serious doubts this would work. I don’t see any of the reviewers saying, “Yes! Now, I have perfect pitch!” I suspect there’s a reason.

Awesome app

I’ve been looking for a synesthesic music training app like this for a long time. It’s nearly perfect, although here is some constructive feedback for the developers:
-The haptic feedback should be a bit more sensitive. I have to press hard to trigger the notes.
-It would be nice if the octave automatically raised when playing along with a song.
-A “Simon” game mode would be helpful.
-It would be nice to have more color shades, especially dark tones. I was looking for a deep, dark blue, and the closest color option was a kind of washed out blueish grey color.

Awesome app overall. Thank you for making this.
