Ear training is very important to understanding music. Keeping the tonic of a piece in the mind helps to better analyze a piece while listening. Unlike other programs (e. g. Listening-Singing-Teacher), that use a growing melody to improve your musical memory, SamePitchPlease concentrates on learning to keep a single note in your mind. The goal is to learn to produce the same pitch after a longer period of silence with precision
If you can produce a specific pitch without the help of a reference tone, then you probably have absolute pitch. Probably, because Absolute Pitch described in Wikipedia requires many other skills beside the production of a pitch without a reference. However, this point can be viewed as the most important of absolute pitch. Therefore, a mean to measure your Pitch Ability was developed. In this way you can scientifically express your Pitch Ability. Your Pitch Ability is the number of seconds for which you are still able to reproduce a heard pitch within a precision of 50 cents after number of seconds silence. SamePitchPlease helps you to train and improve this ability.
