Ear training App for better recording, mixing, and live sound
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., â€“ Audiofile Engineering, creators of professional audio software for Mac OS X and iOS, have recently acquired Quiztones (http://quiztones.net), an ear training application for audio professionals and musicians, and released it as an App for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Quiztones founder Dan Comerchero joins Audiofile Engineering as a Product Manager.
Quiztones is designed to train the ears to instantly and intuitively recognize frequencies. This is useful for tasks like mixing, adjusting EQ settings, and identifying and eliminating feedback.
â€œAs musicians and audio professionals, we spend a great deal of time analyzing frequencies, whether weâ€™re adjusting them for a good mix in the studio, or trying to get rid of feedback on stage,â€? said Comerchero. â€œEar training with Quiztones can make this a lot faster and easier by eliminating trial and error methods of frequency identification such as sweeping.â€?
Quiztones cleverly uses various quizzes to engage users in training exercises from simple frequency tones and pink noise to real-world sounds like frequency-altered drums, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass and vocals.
Quiztones is designed to:
â€¢ Sharpen frequency recognition skills
â€¢ Improve mixing and EQ skills
â€¢ Prevent noise buildup in mixes and recordings
â€¢ Identify and eliminate feedback on stage
â€¢ Eliminate the need for time-consuming frequency sweeping
Quiztones requires iOS 4.0 or later on an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad and is available through iTunes for $2.99. To learn more about Quiztones, visit: http://audiofile-engineering.com/quiztones.
