Our friends at PureMix have produced this Ear Training Tool app to help you identify frequency bands because no one is born with the innate knowledge of what 250Hz sounds like. It’s a learned skil and a skill you need to practice to eliminate the guess work when mixing records and looking for bothersome peaks or holes in your tracks.
The pureMix Frequency Quiz will help you memorize the sound of crucial frequency and ranges and will help you speed up the equing process drastically over time.
The audio spectrum is divided in 10 octaves. The Quiz’s first 3 levels will focus on the lower, middle and higher 5 octaves of the spectrum. Once you feel confident, you can challenge yourself with all the octaves simultaneously.
There are 10 samples per test so you will need to stay focussed. The frequencies played to you are presented in a random order so the test will be different every-time. Also make sure you run the test on decent speakers or headphones if you must. If you are take the test on earbuds or laptop speakers then you are missing out and fooling yourself. Have fun. Test yourself often. Get better faster.
