Dream Theater's Jordan Rudess will be releasing his latest app at the iTunes store tomorrow (July 11th.) The new app is called Earwizard and MSO sent over these details:
Jordan had this to say, "Ear training is the single most important thing that musicians of any level can do. I have a passion for creating effective ways to help people develop their musical ears!
"EarWizard is a result of my desire to offer a really fun and engaging experience that will challenge and entertain musicians and non musicians alike!"
Rudess' company Wizdom Music teamed up with Chilean developer Felipe Peña to develop the app which is an ear training app that improves memory, Earwizard will be available in 8 languages (Spanish, English, Greek, Dutch, Chinese, Italian, Portuguese and German).
The app trains your ear while improving your memory skills by having the player repeat back a sequence of chords which gets longer with each round of play. As you improve your skills, the visuals disappear and you'll have to depend on your ear.
