Reel Space Irish Music School in Valencia, Spain releases Reel Ear, an
ear training software that allows musicians 100% control and infinite
melodies in an attractive call and response music dictation software.
(Valencia, Spain. May 17th, 2010). Playing music by ear is the most
important skill that a musician can develop. Many musicians, however,
get frustrated with ear training software because it sounds clunky and
“unmusical”, has only a limited amount of melodies, and doesn’t do
exactly what the musician wants.
Reel Ear, the new ear training program from the Reel Space Irish
Music School in Valencia, Spain, solves those typical design problems.
Designer Mattie O’Boyle says that “our concept of ‘infinite melodies
based on a discrete set of user defined variables’ means that Reel Ear
will generate thousands of possible melodies using just the most
basic settings a beginning musician would want; add a few more
variables to the mix and the number of possible melodies skyrockets
into the billions – and all of it sounds really musical”
Musicians can tweak which notes or musical rests they want to work
on, the length and speed of the phrases, and the number of times the
phrases repeats before moving on to a new melody. They can also
customize the metronome to have the musical dictation take place
against almost any possible rhythmic background and activate the
ostinato module to add an harmonic element to their ear training
Reel Ear is currently available for download from the Reel Ear website
(www.reelear.com). Reel Ear has a 30 day, fully functional trial period
and an individual license to unlock the program forever costs $39.95
Accredited music schools receive trade discounts based on the
volume of their purchase. Currently, Reel Ear is only available for the
Windows operating system.
