InTune v3.0.1 iOS
It’s easy to find apps to help musicians play in tune, but not to improve a musician’s ears. Now that changes, with InTune, the app that helps musicians play in tune by improving their ability to hear.

InTune is an outgrowth of twenty-five years of research and testing in the field of intonation by cellist and professor of app music Daniel Kazez. The concept began as a simple game to test the ability to hear two pitches that are very close together. But then in a university research study, Kazez discovered that students’ hearing improved the more often they played — at triple the rate of those who did not.

With InTune, you’ll hear two pitches and determine whether the second is higher or lower than the first. It starts easy but gets more difficult, until you find the closest pair of pitches that you can hear. Play again and improve your score — and your ear! Share your score with others and find out who has the best ear.

IT CONTAINS THREE EXERCISES

Pitch Dictation - Given a tonic note, one or more notes are played sequentially. The user is asked to annotate the sequence using solfege or pitch names (for perfect pitch/absolute pitch). The user can choose up to four parts.
Chord Identification - Three or more notes from a specific key are played melodically or harmonically. The user is asked to choose from a given set of chords and inversions.
Interval Identification - Two notes are played melodically or harmonically. The user is asked to choose from a given set of intervals. This can be used to improved one's relative pitch skills.

PITCH DICTATION

This exercise will help improve your listening skills using solfege/pitch names. A melody is played and you must identify each note in the melody using the notes on top. Your answer for each note appears on the bottom. Once you finish, press "Verify" to validate your answer. If your answer is correct, a new melody is played. If it is incorrect, the incorrect notes will be highlighted in red and the correct answer will be shown beneath each incorrect note.
CHORD IDENTIFICATION

This exercise will help you distinguish between different chords. Chords can be played harmonically/melodically (by changing the bpm setting) and ascending/descending. Correct answers will cause a new chord to play. For incorrect answers, the correct answer will be shown.
INTERVAL IDENTIFICATION

This exercise will help you distinguish between different intervals. Intervals can be played harmonically/melodically (by changing the bpm setting) and ascending/descending. Correct answers will cause a new interval to play. For incorrect answers, the correct answer will be shown.
KEYBOARD

In landscape mode, a keyboard will appear to help the user with any exercise or just general practice. When viewed from any exercise, the keyboard will highlight and scroll to the tonic note being used by the current exercise. It will also switch between solfege/letter notes depending on the exercise settings.

*** Five dedicated sound engines containing powerful tone ***
KORG Module has five dedicated sound engines, providing a number of high-quality sounds that can be played back on your iPad using the "NATIVE ENGINE”. These engines feature technology that was developed for KORG's historic line of workstations and synthesizers including: Acoustic Piano, Electric Piano, Clav, Organ, and Multi. Each display has carefully selected parameters, making it convenient and easy to adjust the sounds.

*** Welcome to a new mobile world, where your iPad and a MIDI keyboard is all you need for a complete setup ***

It's easy to set up and start playing immediately, whether you're in your room, a practice studio, or performing live. KORG Module adopts an open hardware philosophy that allows connection to any MIDI keyboard.
