Musings on a game that could induce categorical perception

I'm thinking of a game that could help with categorical perception( I hope... posting to hear thoughts from Chris and all forum users). It is based off ideas from two other games, Super Mario World and Mega Man. In Super Mario World (from Super Nintendo), power up blocks containing special powers mu...

Re: Unlocking levels

I got frustrated with this aspect of the game, which led me to stop playing it. I don't care about scores at all. I just want to play a level, beat it, and move on. I want to close the game, and when I open it back up, be in the exact same place I left it. I would love the option to play this way, b...

1800

Well I made it through 150 levels on each egg. It is really hard for a while but trust me, it gets easier. Is it time to move to absolute pitch painter? Have you passed level twelve yet Chris?

Melody Word

Am I missing anything if I don't listen to the melody word? For the last 250 levels I listened to the melody word once on level 1, and then not at all. I've found I can get through the levels without it. Will it impede my progress if I don't use it?

Encouragement for anyone who is struggling

Bottom line, it gets easier. Right now I'm on level 100 of my 5th note, and at 150 levels per note, that puts me right around level 700 out of 1800. There were times when I would sit for 30 minutes and not be able to pass one level. I started a rigorous method that helped me get through the really h...

Transferring progress between two computers

I love ETC 7 and the new Pitch Painter. Thank you for all your research and hard work! I have a desktop and a laptop, and I'm curious if there is a way to transfer progress between two computers. I have to go out of town for 5 days and it would be great to start from where I left off while on the ro...

Chris, I don't know why I didn't think of this before, but it would be fairly easy to test these types of ideas using programs that convert incoming audio into midi, and programs that use midi input to control different software functions. Maybe a simple setup with Pure Data (are you familiar with P...

Well it depends on if the music is audio or midi. If it is midi it is much easier. For the body suit idea, what you need is something to listen to the incoming midi, make decisions based on what it hears, send out those decisions to some kind of controller, which would transmit signals to the body s...

One more idea. A while back I posted something about having to sing a certain pitch to accomplish some task. A variation on this could be having various locks that only open when a person can identify whether or not a melody or cluster of chords contains a certain pitch. So it would be like APA exce...

Idea

What if three senses were combined? One to listen, one to establish some kind of frame of reference, and one to assign a function for what the pitch actually does. That sounds abstract. For example, imagine every time a pitch was played, it is associated with a color and a part of the body. So the p...

Remember Level

Chris, How do I make sure that whatever level I'm playing in Interval Loader will be available next time I play? I just recently started playing on a new system, and I am starting from scratch. I knocked out 7 or 8 levels before closing it the first time. Now it won't let me start above level 1. Wha...

Gavriel, It seems like you are confusing the stimulus response idea with simple association. For example, you are saying you should be able to associate a pitch with the voice of a friend. This is not analogous to the proposed computer program that works by voice activation. The voice of a friend ca...

I really like the program opening idea. Instead of a testing situation where there is a right or a wrong answer, whatever note you sing DOES something. Is this all it takes? Once I downloaded some perfect pitch program that claimed to teach perfect pitch using methods derived from neuro linguistic p...

I just started my second semester in electrical engineering. I'm taking digital signal processing in the fall, so hopefully I'll be able to put something like that together by Christmas if you can't find someone else to do it first. After watching a game like Rock Band that has built in pitch recogn...
