Here's another girl that talks about her experience 'having' AP. This girl did not 'develop' or work on the AP she has, yet from her own admission it sure sounds like her AP is underdeveloped. She claims that she is only really 'sure' about a handful of pitches. http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=M...

Most of the statistics are publicly displayed. I believe you might be able to make your statistics private. Mine are public (I go by 'Space'). Of course I haven't really used Prolobe for most of my eartraining. It's more something I've used to gauge my progress overall. Still, there was one point ye...

I respect that maybe what I have is not 'real' AP but my personal experience is that I *AM* identifying pitches in an absolute way, without need of a reference, and based on the way the pitch itself sounds. My brain has obviously assigned labels to these pitches. And no, AP'ers DO NOT identify pitch...

Well, I must say, it's that kind of obsession that ultimately leads to SOME kind of fruitful ends, be it full development of AP or some reasonable, useful degree of it (like in my case). I guess there's just so much mystique surrounding the phenomenon of AP, it tends to draw people in. I know that t...

I should add that part of this comes out of one of my little 'shoulder chips' which is that people consistently seem to deny that a non-AP person who has learned to identify pitches (AKA: note-naming) actually has anything like 'true' AP. It would be nice then, to see whether this note-naming follow...

New research ideas

Ok, so I allowed myself to get sucked into one of those RIDICULOUS flaming, dead end, pointless arguments over the nature/nurture AP debate. Mainly because this guy is SO completely against the notion that AP can even be remotely learned and that it is completely genetic. Furthermore, he insisted th...

Damn, zacxpacx, give the guy a break! Haha, I've been wondering whether Chris was ever going to return to AP research myself or if he had simply exhausted himself on it and was on to other things. Of course, he IS on to other things, just didn't know if he'd ever come back to it. Regardless, even if...

Before C and G

Prior to the age of 18/19 when I began AP eartraining, pitches were just pitches. They were 'high' and 'low' but nothing else.

Nice!

I love this whole thread you got goin, Lyle. You're the first person that has really stated word for word that one ultimately has 144 pitches to learn. 12 absolutes each in 12 possible tonal contexts. That's basically the path I'm on. Also, though I haven't approached it in quite as a meticulous way...

Well, I don't bother about it now. Instead of going by how long it takes to move up a level, I just work on it for 10mins at a time.

No problem, homz! Your software has always been exceedingly helpful in my quest for monster musical ears. Ha. I can work around that particular bug, but I don't know how much of a pain it is for others. Also, to be honest, I could never figure out the point of noteboat myself. Perhaps it has somethi...

Errors in higher levels.

I've noticed in playing APA that when you get up to higher levels, like beyond 180 or so of a particular pitch, you start to encounter errors in the eggs where the game says there is or is not a target pitch where you are absolutely 110% sure that there is or is not. I'm on the red egg on the first ...

Random Pitches

I noticed when you choose random pitches, it takes more chicks to move up an avenue. I always do sessions with random pitches where my session is complete when I move up one avenue of C. I've found, however, that it requires more than 6 chicks to move up an avenue in random pitch mode. What's the de...

Oh sweet! Yeah, I went crazy on teaching myself solfegge for a number of years so I did a crap load of singing. Got Arnold's 'Fanatic's Guide" and worked with that a lot. My purpose in suggesting pitch player was to try selecting all notes and playing a song in the background while you identify note...

I think the biggest thing was my involvement with music on a daily basis. I wasn't just eartraining. I was always practicing, composing, listening to music, noodling/improvising. Doing a combination of these things everyday keeps it all flowing together. If you do some eartraining then go right to p...
