I created this basic windows program so that people could try to gauge
their relative pitch and perfect pitch (pitch memory) abilities.
It doesn't ask you to identify a note played - it does the opposite.
It gives you the name of a note, and you need to move a slider and try to
produce that note. I created this for fun, so of course it's free. No
advertising or spyware, no viruses, no installer, just a simple program.
Let me know what you think about it or what kind of results you get.
By the way, I'm not sure if this will really be useful for ear-training,
or useful in any way, but you might have fun with it or find it interesting.
Hopefully it's not too buggy - at least it works on my computer. Thanks.

Hey, man! This is a really cool prog!!!

Anyway did you konow that Steve Vai developed perfect pitch for himself by listening to a 440hz note during his sleep?
It worked for him!!!

So from now on I'll use my machine to run this program instead of playing eejit games:D

Very well done!

lmao my friend you have been misled, as Mr. Vai certainly does not have perfect pitch (he said it himself)!

Hmmm... Then I dunno what I have remembered. Then maybe someone else did it?

Anyway, there WAS somebody who developed ppitch by listening to an A note while sleeping. Then, it wasn't Steve Vai. 'cuse me.

This program is probably good just as a test. For ear training, a program like "functional ear trainer" (http://www.miles.be) is probably much better.
