Train your ears and improve your mixes with Quiztones, the frequency ear training app for amateur and professional audio engineers, producers and musicians.
Quiztones uses tones and frequency-altered noise and musical loops (including source material from your own music library) to train your ears and help develop more acute listening and frequency recognition skills.
• Sharpen your ears & frequency recognition skills
• Improve your mixing and EQ chops
• Prevent noise and frequency buildup in your mixes & recordings
• Eliminate the need to sweep for frequencies
Quiztones cleverly uses quizzes to engage users in training exercises. Each EQ quiz includes four trainers:
• Easy frequency boost (+10 dB)
• Hard frequency boost (+5 dB)
• Hard frequency cut (-10 dB)
• Expert frequency boost – 1/3 octave (available via Quiztones Pro in-app purchase)
New in 1.7: Train your ears to identify boost & cut between 1-16dB with our new Gain Level Comparison quizzes! These new quizzes are available via the Quiztones Pro in-app purchase.
Quizzes included in version 1.7:
• Music Library
• Pink Noise
• Strings 2
• Electric Bass
• Upright Bass
• Female Vocals
• Electric Guitar
• Acoustic Guitar
"Turns out, this app offers everything offered in that Berklee class of mine… in an app!"

The Quiztones app is far and away the best app I've purchased. It's an incredible tool for all audio engineers and musicians ... My mixing has improved by leaps and bounds after just a few weeks with Quiztones.

A professional Audio Engineer of 10 years, I've come across many ear training devices, blind tests, and software. This app is TOPS! Highly recommended! The developers are serious about what they do. You will not be disappointed!

What's New in Version 1.8.3
Quiztones 1.8.3 resolves a crash when selecting a quiz type.
It's not bad
I am currently enrolled in MTSU's Audio Production program and this app is recommended as a tool to help outside of a class called "Critical Listening". The app is pretty similar to the training we do in class with the Golden Ears disc set.
I love the option to choose a song from your phone's library to use. It's very important to have a collection of songs you know really well to use as a solid reference. If you pick a song that you really enjoy and just know how it sounds, it makes it easier for you to pinpoint where the problem is when the boost/cut is turned on (too bright, muddy bass, telephone effect, midrange honk, etc.)
I think it would be nice to have a review option maybe after each question or after you complete the set of 10. Maybe the boost/cut is at 2K but you choose 1K, if you could revisit the question and had the option to compare the 2K boost to the 1K boost it would help you distinguish between them.
Also I read another review that suggested a kind of tutorial/introduction for the newcomers. I think this would also be a good addition seeing as how it would help someone who is just starting out develop the associations of the change characteristics to the name of the frequency band. (Brightness = 8K/16K, Telephone effect = 1K/2K, etc.)
All-in-all it's not bad, especially alongside any similar ear training courses or lessons.
What a joke. I bought this because the far superior DDT Feedback app does not work anymore. I spent 5 bucks just wanting a feedback identification trainer. Well, the 1 octave version is great for beginners, but way too easy for me. Apparently I have to buy the pro version to unlock the 1/3rd octave function. Cool. I bought this app for $4.99, now I have to spend god knows how much to make it useful. I'd at least like to know how much it costs before to upgrade to pro. But apparently that needs to be kept secret as well. Great job.
Good for Beginners
I mean, the whole buy then buy again is pretty darn Lame so off two stars, but the fact that it doesn't keep track of your performance is stupid (off two more stars). How would you see what you need to improve.... What are the points for??!! And instead of a Sine Wave Test Tone, you guys should get real life examples of feedback.
I don't know, maybe just One same recording with a 32 band provoked over a mic and speaker to simulate.
That would be 32 samples, multiplied by however many intensities you want, let's say 3- easy, Hard, and expert.
This is a great tool, but let's improve it for the sake of this awesome app. It would be a shame for this potential to stay the same.
Great App for beginners thou :) (1 star) 👍
