Purple Magic updates "The Orb - Ear Trainer" Interactive Voice Controlled Ear Training App for iOS to v1.06

19th May 2016

Purple Magic has updated The Orb - Ear Trainer, a comprehensive ear training app with an intuitive and streamlined interface for iOS, to v1.06. It's free for a limited time.

We haven't reported on this app before, so here's what they say:

It offers three modes of gamified training and a Musician's Assistant tool that aids deep analysis and transcription of melodies and harmonies using touch and voice.

An accurate and flexible pitch recognition algorithm has been developed to allow an immersive experience and caters to beginners and advanced musicians alike. The graphical layout has been designed for minimum distraction and maximum listening focus.

The Orb's non-classical training approach focuses on listening and quality of intervals, bypassing the need of understanding musical notation.

Musician's Assistant and trackable level progress have been integrated to help music teachers quickly improve students' listening ability.

Three different modes allow you to train anywhere, on a bus, train, in a park or even while taking the bath.
