A man achieve perfect pitch with a sensory device

Interesting, I stumbled upon this ted talk about Neil Harbisson who is born color blind and invented a cyber device that produce sound frequencies matching colors. https://www.ted.com/talks/neil_harbisson_i_listen_to_color So I became curious to know if he could have achieved some degree of perfect ...

Yes me too. I don't play much at this time. I've been stuck at level 5 for ages now. Well, not really stuck but I just don't play enough to pass.

I would be curious how the introduction of other octaves is going.

Hi chris, good to hear you have developed the expanding octaves already. This gets me motivated to start playing again. I haven't played in more than one month. One thing I noticed is that APP seem to have a beneficial effect on my ear. When I'm playing guitar, I seem to find the notes I hear more e...

I had a similar problem with green in level 4. I didn't know it. My mind was going blank every time I heard it. I think it's because I stopped playing APP for a while right after I completed the medium game, so I forgot what I learnt. My strategy was a bit different than yours though. I tried to con...

Chris,

I'm also wondering about the fix you were supposed to do to correct the temporary file bug. Have you done it ? If so can I have it ? Sometimes I think I have the bug (although that could be just me making mistakes), and I wouldn't want to make the game more difficult than it is already.

Level 4 is hard !

This level is giving my great difficulties compared to the previous levels. Usually I fail few games before being able to have a clear mental picture of categories but here I struggle much more that usually. Whatever unconscious strategy was developed by my brain to succeed at previous levels, it pr...

I think it also has to do with self confidence. If I play to avoid mistakes I start to doubt more and more eggs, even some that were previously obvious to me. On the contrary, if I play to learn as opposed to play to win I start trusting more my instinct and the progression just fell more natural.

I can relate to that. I tried the strategy you suggested of playing with the mouse and avoiding to guess ambiguous tones but the problem is it makes playing very stressfull because I m thinking about the score all the time and I try to avoid mistakes. I have know stopped using this strategy. Instead...

Allright. I see. If it is possible to generate microtones in midi with other languages. You might consider to just write a library in an other language and call it from realbasic. I don't know much about realbasic but most programming languages allow to do that.

Varying timbre

I m thinking. This game doesn't need much changes for us to start recognizing tones outside of it and possibly in music. As I wrote before, I experimented with pressing the space bar several times in a row to produce melodies and I could still hear the categories of pitches. Another member of the fo...

Nice. I 'm suddenly wondering. How many final categories are there ? Seven or twelve ? I see already five plain color eggs on your graph so that would make me think seven unless you add different shades of the same color later. I recall you wrote about a study that seems to prove absolute pitch poss...

In the same line of thoughts, I had an interesting experience. I got angry while playing APP so after I failed an egg I pressed repetitively the space bar (no very mature I know but it happens). So i heard a strange out of tune atonal melody but I was still able to find the last pitch color. Since t...

I 'm wondering. Shouldn't the game be more tolerant regarding tones located at the boundary of two categories ? I mean if a sudden drop of accuracy at the boundary if considered normal for categorical perception, I think missing thoses tones should have little impact of the score. One should not fai...

I'm only at level 2 now so I can't express a definitive opinion but subjectively I would say I use height judgments as part of my strategy but not only. I mean because I'm dealing with only 3 categories I feel I mainly become sensitive to the middle category. If a tone doesn't fit the category I usu...

Hum, this is odd, I systematically hear the note C has having a different timbre. Is that my ear or is there really a timbre change ? I was not sure which note it was until I used an electronic tuner to check. Seems to be always C. why C ? it seems to be the lowest tone of the red-yellow category so...
