Train Your Ears App – Ear Training for Sound Engineers

This post is just a quick update for those who are looking to hone their skills as a mixing engineer.

More specifically, as I’m sure you’ve already guessed from the title, this app relates to training your ears to recognise specific frequencies and related effects.

From the website:

TrainYourEars EQ Edition is an ear training software for Mac and PC designed to help you understand equalisers and frequencies like never before

It speeds up your learning process exposing you to hundreds of random equalizations you have to guess. If you are wrong, it will let you know “how wrong”, and it will let you hear both your guess and the correct answer.

In no time you will develop a frequency memory which will allow you to connect the sound you imagine in your head with the parameters you need to dial, quickly and easily than ever.

I’m yet to have a play around with the application myself, but I recently stumbled across it and wanted to share what looks like, a very promising tool.
