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.

“As musicians and audio professionals, we spend a great deal of time analyzing frequencies, whether we’re adjusting them for a good mix in the studio, or trying to get rid of feedback on stage,” said Comerchero. “Ear training with Quiztones can make this a lot faster and easier by eliminating trial and error methods of frequency identification such as sweeping.”

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:
• Sharpen frequency recognition skills
• Improve mixing and EQ skills
• Prevent noise buildup in mixes and recordings
• Identify and eliminate feedback on stage
• 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.
