EQ Playground is a hands-on training zone for producers and engineers to practice and improve their equalization skills.
EQ Playground includes the EQ trainer, seven ear-training games, and a weekly contest.
The EQ Trainer
EQ trainer asks trainers to use a parametric equalizer to replicate a presented sound. An algorithm then compares the two sounds to decide how precise is the answer. Members can choose to train with specific filter combinations at five difficulty levels to improve aspects of their ability.
7 EQ ear-training games
EQ Playground includes seven eq ear-training games. The games train users to detect frequencies, recognize filter settings, hear subtle EQ nuances and more. Trainers can compare scores, get objective feedback about their skills, and track their improvement over time.
EQ Mirror is the main EQ game in the playground. In this multi-level game, trainers sculpt a specific sound using an equalizer with 1 to 5 bands. At each level, users encounter and learn to use new types of filters. As they pass levels, more bands and filters interact, and the questions' complexity is raised.
Weekly EQ Contest
EQ Playground hosts a weekly contest where competitors have 3 minutes to answer as many EQ questions as possible. Competitors are getting points for accuracy and speed and winners get a prize.
EQ Playground is free to all SoundGym members, you can sign-up for a free account here
