Re: group/pattern game for ap

Chris,
Have you worked on anything like the game proposed in this thread? Either a replacement for Chordfall, or an extension of Interval Loader, or whatever?

Re: Which chords are covered in this game?

No, I figure I've got a long way to go before I reach that point. I was wondering if anybody else knew when to expect difficulties. I can just forget about it for now.

Re: Which chords are covered in this game?

I realize this thread is really old, but does anybody know anything more about this problem of enharmonic chords in Chordhopper? I'm wondering if it help to, for example, use a drone as a reference pitch in order to resolve those ambiguities?

Flash cards are a good idea. I think I might try using Anki Notes, since it supports audio.

Re: mobile devices, I've read that it's easiest to use something called libpd to embed music functionality in an app, since iOS and Android have poor or nonexistent support for MIDI. Kivy is one example of a software framework that allows you to make cross-platform mobile apps using a more approacha...

IIRC certain chords in Chordsweeper had an irresoluble ambiguity; they could have more than one harmonic function. Although couldn't you just have the program accept more than one answer?

If a mobile game is a possibility, I recommend going the HTML5/JavaScript route, rather than making a native Android and/or iOS app. Take a look at the midi.js project, for example. That way you don't have to worry about the details of different platforms or devices, and your game can run on almost ...

NPR had a story about this on one of its shows last week. Really interesting.

For generating MIDIs in exotic tunings, you might look at Scala or Tune Smithy.

but it would be fairly easy to test these types of ideas using programs that convert incoming audio into midi


Not if you're hoping to do it with the human voice. Getting a computer to interpret the pitch of a voice the way another person would is supposedly a very difficult problem.

Sorry, the info I posted earlier was wrong. The MIDI stuff in iOS is only meant to allow an app to send and receive MIDI to and from external hardware--it apparently doesn't include a software synth for MIDI playback. Lame.

I don't know whether it changes anything, or if you already knew, but it looks like iOS finally has MIDI support. I'm guessing that would make a game like ETC much more feasible, seeing as how you wouldn't have to include a ton of audio files.

Earmaster and similar programs make ear training dependent on instrumental ability and music-theoretical knowledge, whereas music learning pedagogy, as far as I can tell, recommends developing the ear well in advance of those skills. Also, by combining all of those drills with notation and so on, yo...

I heard about that on the radio a few weeks ago. Apparently the natural, instinctive, way of counting is logarithmic, and not with integers as we learn them in elementary school. (Thus adding one to one is very different intuitively from, say, adding one to fifty.)

Did Chordfall bug ever get fixed?

I've started to play Chordfall again in v.4, and read in the research journal that there's a bug in the program beginning in level 13, where the variable chord roots make certain inversions indistinguishable. Was this ever fixed?
