App updates

Almost a year since we have made a post about Complete Ear TrainerComplete Rhythm Trainer and Complete Music Reading Trainer. Time for an update!

First we have a developed a translation management system so anyone can help translating the apps in different languages. You can find it here: https://translate.binaryguilt.com. Thanks to this tool, but above all thanks to the wonderful Maksym Vlasov, Ezequiel Santos, Tomasz Sęczkowski, Christian Plonka and Miranda Roll-Lund:

Then, these last few months we added two sections to Complete Rhythm TrainerPolyrhythms (play and practice any polyrhythm) and Free Practice (write and play any rhythm).

On the iOS side, we are hard at work on the iOS port and we finally released custom programs for the iOS version of Complete Ear Trainer. Custom programs are of course cross-platform and you can create custom programs for your students that can be joined and played from both Android and iOS devices. Remaining features are currently ported (additional sound banks, UI update, etc.) and as soon as it is done, Complete Rhythm Trainer and Complete Music Reading Trainer port will start. We hope to release everything this year.

That’s all for now!

New in Complete Ear Trainer: Custom Programs

After months of hard work, we are excited to release a whole new feature for Complete Ear Trainer: Custom Programs.

In addition to still be able to create quick single custom drills, you can now create full custom training programs with up to 20 chapters and 20 drills per chapter. Custom programs are really useful if you want to build a personalized training program and are offering many options: chapters/simple drill list, scoring, stars, number of required stars, etc.

But that’s not all, you can invite friends or students to join your custom programs. Each custom program can have its own private leaderboards and for example if you’re a teacher you can create custom programs for your students, add drills every week and see their scores on the leaderboards.

I’ll sure be using this myself when teaching!

  • The results screen has been greatly improved with better contextual texts and a brand new secondary screen with detailed result, explanation and statistics
  • 6 new sound banks added: vintage piano, Rhodes piano, harpsichord, concert harp, strings and pizzicato strings. There’s now a total of 8 sound banks available
  • The guitar sound bank has been remade from scratch
  • Sound banks are now handled in a new dedicated screen where you can preview, buy, download and delete them
  • New option added: random sound bank. By selecting this, each question will use a different sound bank
