Excellent Multi-Pitch Ear Training. Develop Relative and Perfect Pitch. Learn how to listen to simultaneous notes from a functional harmonic perspective.

This app is designed after a very popular exercise taught by a world famous music education guru in the Boston area. Many generations of musicians from all over the world traveled to Boston and waited in a two-year waiting list to access this information and now it is available to everyone at a low price.

It will help anybody significantly improve their aural skills.
From beginners to professionals, this is a great workout for your ears.

Hear from 1 to 11 notes at the time relative to any major key, diatonically or chromatically. Select whether you want to see notes by name, degrees or movable do.
It's fun, it includes flexible options, it's very easy to use and extremely effective. Now you can train and open up your ears anytime, anywhere!
If you stick to it it will build up your perceptions all the way to near perfect pitch.

Politonus keeps track of your progress and tells you when you've reached a master level in the current settings so you can confidently move on to a more complex ear training workout (Both note streak and accuracy circles will turn green).

Politonus includes a coach with a powerful algorithm for relative and/or perfect pitch that acts as an ear training tutor. It presents progressive exercises and allows you to step up to a harder level when you are ready. With Politonus you'll have a great ear training teacher anywhere!

You will not regret this purchase.

Great App for learning to "hear" multiple pitches simultaneously!

However, the "wizard" needs some work, as it never remembers my progress. I essentially have to start over from the beginning each time. Well, not exactly the beginning, as the wizard does seem to keep re-starting me at the two pitches (diatonic) within one octave stage, even though I've progressed to the two pitches (chromatic) within one octave stage.

Can we look forward to an update to fix this issue? I'm running iOS 10.3.3 on an iPhone 6+.

Otherwise, great app!

Developer Response ,

Thanks so much for your feedback. We just tested the Coach at the levels you mentioned and it worked well on our end. Did you do at least one exercise on 2 chromatic pitches? That will create the new database and the app will remember where you left off. Maybe you turned the app off without doing any new exercises with 2 chromatic pitches?

If you continue having this issue, remember that you can always set manually your starting point with the coach off, then turn it on. The coach will pick up from any setting you select manually. In your case you would need to turn the coach off, go to settings, adjust your settings to key of C, 2 chromatic pitches within one octave, and you can just keep going with your practice.

There will be a new update for Politonus in a few days. Please make sure to update it.
Also, we just updated our contact email for customer service. You will find it at the bottom-right area of our website mdecks.com

Please do not hesitate contacting us via email if you wish. Your satisfaction is very important to us. Thanks again.

The hidden secret of musicianship

I love this program because it is similar to the ear training I did with the great jazz guru Charlie Bananas. Also, the developer Ariel is an ultra-cool nice person who actually responds to questions and requests. These apps are an essential part of any musician’s tool bag.

Not for everyone

This app gave me flashbacks to when I took music theory as an elective because I wanted to learn music theory but instead just got a bitter oboeist screaming “WRONG” at me every time I misidentified the note/chord she played.
