If it tells you to try again, is the super fly still there for you to click, or do you have to play another 24 rounds to get it back?

What happens if you make a mistake in a super fly round?

I have been extra-careful not to make any mistakes during my super fly rounds because they come across as tests. What happens if you make a mistake?

Suggestion: Keyboard shortcut for 'repeat chord' button

It would be nice not to have to take my hands off the keyboard when I want Chordhopper to repeat a chord.

Another reason to have Chordhopper play the chords the player chooses is that it would probably make the player less likely to hear a series of chords as a chord progression. Chordhopper appears to select each chord independently, without regard to voice-leading considerations (which would make cert...

The speed settings in Interval Loader are just fine. What I meant was that Chordhopper does not have speed settings (unless you count auto-play).

I'm experimenting with this variant of the clock-position, number-keys layout: [T] = 12 o'clock [Q] - [R] = 8 o'clock - 11 o'clock [Y] - [ ] ] = 1 o'clock - 7 o'clock This is a shifted version of the same layout, with 'T for twelve' as a mnemonic. The advantage here is that the break is between C#/D...

It probably isn't clear why I would suggest putting the note buttons in a circle, is it? The existing horizontal arrangement of the buttons reminds me of a piano keyboard, and for me that association is unhelpful at best. On a piano keyboard, 'further to the right' always means 'higher in pitch'. Th...

Why doesn't Chordhopper play back the chords you choose?

Interval Loader plays back each interval or scale degree as you choose them. I like this feature because my mistakes are immediately obvious, even when I'm not looking at the screen. Why doesn't Chordhopper do the same thing with the chords you choose? Edit: I noticed that it does play back the chor...

Chordhopper: Last note of 'spelling' round is never played

Chordhopper normally plays each note I choose during a 'spelling' round, but it doesn't play the last note I choose when I'm spelling the last chord.

Ekdahl and Boring's article demonstrates that people peg the "height" of a tonal mass at approximately the mathematical average of all its frequencies, whether or not they are aware of the individual frequencies. I wonder whether a similar effect occurs with melodic pitches that are played in quick...

I suspect that inversions are not identical in the same way that "we" and "you" are not the same words, even though both "we" and "you" are the same vowel combination coarticulated differently. For what it's worth, most students in my ear training class this fall had great difficulty identifying wh...
