1/6/14 - Half price for 2014! Take advantage of our sale while it lasts! Accept no imitators, freqTrain is THE standard for studio and live sound iOS training apps!
Attention audio engineers, students, and musicians! All aboard the FreqTrain!
Freqtrain SE is a training program designed to sharpen your listening skills and take your mixes to the next level. The idea is simple - listen to broadband pink noise being boosted at specific frequencies, and try to guess what those frequencies are. By doing so, you will train yourself to recognize which frequencies need EQ'ing in real life mixing (live sound and recorded) situations!
FreqTrain SE is designed to mimic the drills used in many audio education programs, such as Berklee College's Music Production school, and the Golden Ears course. Freqtrain will improve your academic scores and accelerate your progress!
Please note: FreqTrain SE is designed to increase overall mixing and EQ skills. For help in developing feedback detection and elimination skills, please download FreqTrain LE.
CAUTION: FreqTrain SE is capable of producing audio at high volumes! We recommend you turn down the volume on your iOS device when loading FreqTrain.
Very useful, I can already tell it's helping me with my EQ'ing... Any chance we could get boosts and cuts in the next version??
Similar to the Berklee pink noise drills, could really use cuts and an option to change the boost db level
Decent training tool
As a Berklee alum myself, I had to get this app to test it's features and decide whether it's useful or not. I'm mixing or tracking 5 days a week so naturally I was drawn in by the sales pitch. Honestly, I can't stop playing with it.
The best advice I can offer here is to make sure you use the near field monitors you currently use to mix. This is the perfect opportunity to train your ears to hear specific frequency bands in context. And after 20 seconds of a specific challenge.. stop. Your ears have lost the fundamental and you're not hearing what you think you are.
Bottom line, this app is a score for any novice or student attempting to hone their mixing and listening skills.
