hey Aruffo, after reading your own writing, i put two and two together and decided to reclassify my own perception as a form of absolute pitch. let me explain: in the timbre of my own instrument, and in the central octaves, i've developed broad categories that stretch across certain semitone combina...

"I also can't be sure that my mind isn't somehow developing relative categories, rather than absolute categories, in the same way that Interval Loader trains one-note scale degrees." one trick a lot of us musicians use to throw off our sense of key is to play a 1 4 5 1 cadence in a random ...

note recognition drills BADLY need to stick with triads in a tonal context until a sub one second speed without the need for direct answer feedback is achieved. mixing in garble that's the musical equivalent of "gefagit derfamaltots bedelwin" is a musician killer. how so? it'll kill you wi...

there are great extremities that one can go with scale-degree recognition. for instance, recently i got my recognition of many four note triads down to one second! that's four notes, or degrees per chord! totally beats intervals, or other tricks for hearing triads. (such as listening for quality, th...

randomly generate inversion and voicing based on the harmonic function of the song. this way the brain will learn to differentiate function regardless of inversion, because the common theme throughout will be function regardless of inversion and voicing. play the piece, then four note triads or seve...

i'd like to point out that people don't develop scale-degree recognition just by listening to music, either. and even if that person can recognize basic scale-degrees in isolation, then that doesn't translate over to music very easily, either. in fact, it's difficult to do without the right tools, a...

why not just keep on going with chromatic? no reason to stop right now. in the meantime, download version one of FET.

Lyle, how difficult would it be to learn how to use sox to create tracks in the timbre of my own instrument? as it stands now, the documentation is utterly vague and confusing, and i can't even figure out how to open the command line (i click on the sox icon, the command line comes up and then disap...

never said any of that actually, though i've thought about implementing random octaves and timbres from time to time in order to prevent myself from recognizing the key from the outset (which i became very good at doing in one timbre). so... what did i do? i created tracks, or i downloaded FET (it h...

must say, though - i question the necessity of listening for certain overtones, because they get completely swamped by the neighboring ones (such as the 6th of middle C)

tryin' to think of a good way to handle this... you say get to the point where you can easily hear one particular overtone (the "target" one, i suppose you could say...) so maybe the loudest track is supposed to indicate which tone i should to be listening for, and then ideally i should ge...
