Melody Ear Training can help improve:

• Interval recognition
• Sense of pitch
• Transcription skills
• Improvising skills
• Self esteem

---

How to Play:

• Tap "play" to hear the melody
• To hear the melody again, tap "replay"
• Use the piano to play the melody yourself
• Play often to improve your score!

---

MIDI In – Plug in your MIDI keyboard to enhance the experience! (Core MIDI compatible)

MIDI Out – If you have a music instrument app (such as a synth) that can run in "background mode" and accepts virtual Core MIDI, you can play Melody Ear Training using the sounds of that app.

---

Tips for the Beginners:

Start with "2 Notes" for the melody length, set the difficulty to "Diatonic", and set the "Scale" to "C".

Use the + and - keyboard range control to set the keyboard to a small range such as "C, D" or "C, D, E".

Keep practicing, and as you progress you'll want to make the range larger.

---

Tips for the Pros:

Set "Feedback" to "Never" and turn on "Autoplay" to play continuously without ever missing a beat. Crank up the tempo to see how fast you can go!

---

Melody Settings:

Scale – 13 major scales

Difficulty – Diatonic, Random Tonic, Chromatic

Length – 2 to 6 notes

Tempo – 60 to 320 BPM

Keyboard Range – Starting at 2 notes in a major scale (ex. “C, D”) and up to 12 notes in a major scale (ex. “C, D, E, F, G, A, B, C, D, E, F, G”) with the ability to change octaves.

Feedback – Set to "Never" to stop all messages. Set to "Wrong" if you only want messages for incorrect melodies.

Sound – Set to "Piano" to hear the built-in piano sound. Set to "MIDI Out" to hear the sound of a music instrument app (such as a synth) that can run in "background mode" and accepts virtual Core MIDI.

Autoplay – Turn on to always play the next melody immediately. Turn off if you want to play the keyboard freely between melodies.

Key Labels – Turn off to remove note names on white keys.

Allow Unison – Turn off if you don't want the same note to be played twice in a row.

About the Difficulty Setting:

"Diatonic" uses notes from a major scale. This setting is recommended.

"Random Tonic" uses notes from a random major scale each time.

"Chromatic" mode is the "extreme mode" where any combination of notes is possible. As a result, strange intervals like the Augmented 2nd (ex. F to G#) are possible.

---

About the Score:

Melody Ear Training is all about self progression. Tap the score to reset at any time. The game goes on forever and the music never ends!
