Politonus App Description

This app is designed after a very popular exercise taught by a world famous music education guru in the Boston area. Many generations of musicians from all over the world traveled to Boston and waited in a two-year waiting list to access this information and now it is available to everyone at a low price. It will help anybody significantly improve their aural skills. From beginners to professionals, this is a great workout for your ears. Hear from 1 to 11 notes at the time relative to any major key, diatonically or chromatically. Select whether you want to see notes by name, degrees or movable do. It's fun, it includes flexible options, it's very easy to use and extremely effective. Now you can train and open up your ears anytime, anywhere! If you stick to it it will build up your perceptions all the way to near perfect pitch. Politonus keeps track of your progress and tells you when you've reached a master level in the current settings so you can confidently move on to a more complex ear training workout (Both note streak and accuracy circles will turn green). Politonus includes a coach with a powerful algorithm for relative and/or perfect pitch that acts as an ear training tutor. It presents progressive exercises and allows you to step up to a harder level when you are ready. With Politonus you'll have a great ear training teacher anywhere! You will not regret this purchase.

  • won’t change screen orientation

    The app does not change orientation at all when you rotate the display. It is upside down for the way I always hold and use the iPad (landscape w home button on left side, so I can use right hand to point and left to hit home). Annoying.
  • Great App for learning to "hear" multiple pitches simultaneously!

    However, the "wizard" needs some work, as it never remembers my progress. I essentially have to start over from the beginning each time. Well, not exactly the beginning, as the wizard does seem to keep re-starting me at the two pitches (diatonic) within one octave stage, even though I've progressed to the two pitches (chromatic) within one octave stage. Can we look forward to an update to fix this issue? I'm running iOS 10.3.3 on an iPhone 6+. Otherwise, great app!
  • THE best and I mean THE best ear training app

    I bought this app through the bundle, I don't think it's worth the money, wish I could get a refund. You can get a much better version of ear training for relative pitch and interval recognition with the Auralia interval recognition app for only $0.99.
  • This app is a powerful ear-training tool!

    Ear training is such an important skill for any developing musician in any genre (jazz, rock, classical, country, etc.), yet so many musicians just want to "learn chords!!". Politonus is a great ear-training app and has tools that will sharpen your ear so that you will progressively be able to hear and identify more of the sounds that you are playing and/or hearing. If you play music professionally or for fun, having good ears is a must. Musicians aren't born with good ears and must develop them to sound good. Think of the power you'll have if you could in real-time identify the chords your guitarist may be strumming during a solo. Better ears meaning being more aware of what's missing or "wrong", so you can add, enhance the music. It will also improve your ability to transcribe your favorite songs more quickly (w/o having to buy sheet music!), and will improve your improvisation skills. When you can detect wrong notes more quickly, you will more often play more of the right ones and become a better comper behind soloists as well. I love Politonus and if you use it, it will help you to "play what you hear" and "hear what you play" rather than only being able to strum some jazz chord off of a music chart.

    It's amazing how anyone who studied with the great Charlie Banacos recognizes this ear training exercises immediately. Charlie was such an inspiration for generations of musicians around the world, and this app replicates one of his staple ear training exercises faithfully. Furthermore, it takes it to very sophisticated levels that are not possible to achieve without this technology. Thanks for using technology in such an intelligent and artistic way. This app should be used in every music school, college, university, etc.

    No sound. Tried restarting app, checked sound level. Bummer. iPhone 6.
  • Crazy value! Badazz app!

    I was a student of the great Charlie Banacos for many years. As soon as I started using this app it brought me back to his studio with him at the piano training my ear. These are the same exercises that we worked on all those years ago! Charlie was one of the greatest music educators of the 20th century. Charlie we miss and love you! Thanks so much for making this app and sharing a bit of Banacos with the world!
  • Lotsa potential. Very buggy

    When I can get it working, it is very helpful and I'm making progress. But it crashes every day at least twice. Most annoying, it only makes sound through my Bluetooth and not through the speakers. I have an iPhone 6s with the latest iOS and still having problems. I'm already off to multi tone exercises so it helps, but not everyone is as patient as I am.
  • Wonderful App!

    I've been hoping someone would create this app. I was a student of the great Charlie Banacos back in the 1970s. This is exactly the exercise he would have us do for ear training. I had a background in sight singing which I found to be a helpful prerequisite for this type of exercise. Thank you for creating this app!
