Looks like an interesting and useful idea. My only gripe is that the user display is a little crude-they could've utilised a clearer, bigger display. Nevertheless this could be an invaluable way of developing a good musician's ear..

I think this works better. Cool device though.

Taught to train the ear. Hear a scale, hear a chord, intervals, dissonances.

However if the device helps speed thing's up then cool.

I'm tad old fashioned.

So you wouldn't consider using a new fangle gymnasium or 'hitting the road' to get physically fit? You'd just post a picture of a muscle perhaps? You wouldn't attend a school or University to get an education because its the soft option, you'd just rely on your brain and perhaps post a picture of one? You wouldn't use a hammer to knock nails into wood because that's just 'cheating'-you'd use your bare fists instead? :roll: Don't you think that the use of anything to make learning easier and more complete is a good idea? After all, the goal in this case is good musicianship not how you achieve it. I'm sure you have the perfectly honed and toned ear.

A Speak & spell or a teacher?

Tell me where to find an ear training teacher? Particularly one that I can use anytime, anyplace, anywhere for less than £100.

Once you know the song's associated with the intervals, you wouldn't need the device.
