Re: Good Relative Pitch can get you through APA

Hey man. Just wanted to concur that the basic skill APA teaches is that of simply being able to maintain a pitch in short term memory without fail in spite of gradually more complex contexts. I've found myself that I can pretty much breeze straight to the last level of any pitch given the time and d...

Re: the trouble with melody triggers

Man, I've written a TON about this and it seems nobody ever really gets it. Good to see people talking about it again. The thing is, in spite of the many different chordal and melodic contexts one hears a target pitch in with APA and APB, one STILL manages to begin hearing the target pitch as either...

Re: Perfect Pitch Mnemonics

What that guy is describing, APA already does for you. It's constant recognition and recall of a pitch via a melody word. Nothing new for the price.

Yeah, it seems there would be a moment where the listener suddenly realized something had shifted. But there is also the phenomenon of the listeners temporarily remaining within the slightly flatter category and then hearing the corrected pitches at the end as sharp. Also, Hi Lorelei! Been a while s...

I've always felt that one should be able to input their own melody word somehow. Personally, I think music that has a strong emotional impact to the individual is remembered more clearly - like when one gets a song stuck in one's head. I've imagined a little app where one can take a recording and cr...

How to advance?

How does one move on to the next level? When I finish the first bunch of eggs on the first level, a separate page comes up that seems to be giving me the option to play on the next level (or any level I want), but when I click on the green check mark, it just restarts me at level 1.

That's actually how I found out about it myself. A friend of mine sent me the link.

I've actually been meaning to figure out how to record my desktop while I do some eartraining sessions so I can demonstrate that firsthand to those who are curious. It's really simple in my mind but when I go to explain it in words, I'm suddenly aware of the many details involved. Essentially, thoug...

Yeah, Lorelei, I was thinking of the same thing. If the test dropped the pitch either to right between pitches or even a half step gradually, I think the AP'ers would notice but it would be one of those things where you are temporarily fooled until suddenly it kicks in that the pitch has entered a n...

I wish I could help. My dad has owned his own software company since 1987 and was programming years before that. Yet, I don't know a thing about it. He never taught me anything about what he does other than that it deals in structural dynamics - which is all about measuring vibration resonances of v...

Another study I hadn't seen.

Interesting stuff. Apparently 'native' AP can be thrown off quite easily if done in a certain way.

Chroma/Chromata. Ha, that works I guess :p

I honestly don't like the terms "Chroma" or "Color" in reference to whatever it is that makes the pitches sound different. Unfortunately, there isn't much else.

Not that different timbres occupy different locations. Any pitch tends to be a fundamental frequency accompanied by an overtone sequence pattern that is common to all types of vibrating structures. The pitch of the overtones can be slightly off due to physical considerations but in general, this pat...

I posted a link to the actual study in another section here. Sure, it sounds wacky but apparently the results were above chance.
