According to a previous study, "playing a bunch of random notes" does tend to help "fade" the short-term pitch memory of non-AP possessors. However, it only did this when the random notes were played after the note which the testee had to memorize & sing.

So it would be in this order:

1. Game plays a note, and instructs player to remember it.
2. Game plays a dozen random notes, once per second.
3. Game asks player to sing back the original note into a microphone. (And gives no indication of whether or not the answer was correct.)
4. Rinse and repeat.

After about 20 of these, it displays player's score as a percentage.

This is similair to what EarTest () already does for passive AP, while in "Test" mode. I highly recommend you download & try it, if you haven't already. However, this method addresses primarily short-term memory.

You may also want to consider using Spaced Repetition Systems such as Mnemosyne () to strengthen Long-Term pitch memory. There are other SRS progs available as well, such as SuperMemo and Anki. But I like Mnemosyne because it allows you to place sound, images, and HTML in cards and is easy to use.

Active AP requires long-term pitch memory. Passive AP requires only short-term (after hearing an initial note). Also, RP requires only short-term memory.
