linux default iconClamor Publisher's description

Clamor is software for musical ear training. It runs on Linux and FreeBSD.

Clamor is software for musical ear training. It runs on Linux and FreeBSD. It's written to be as platform-independent as possible, so it might be easy to port to Windows or MacOS X, but I haven't tried. As implied by the version number, this is an early prerelease version.


* The exercises currently available involve hearing intervals, hearing chords, and hearing notes relative to the tonic or the root of a chord.
* Intervals and notes are heard in context: either the tonality is estabished first by playing a cadence, or the note or interval is heard as part of an actual melody.
* The software comes with a synthesizer that uses prerecorded, digitized tones from actual acoustic instruments.

Current misfeatures:

* There's no GUI yet. You use it via the terminal.
* There's no documentation except for what you're reading right now on this web page.
* When relating notes to the tonic or chord root, you type letters based on the traditional solfeg system, e.g., 's' for 'sol.' But for the notes that don't belong to the major scale, you have to use my idiosyncratic solfeg system, in which the chromatic scale goes d g r b m f k s j l p t. It's not yet possible to override this and use a different system.
* I haven't yet spent any time optimizing the synthesis stuff, so it's a little slow. For most of the exercises the delay isn't noticeable, at least on a fast machine, but it does take some time to prepare to play a longer melody, e.g., 5 seconds to prepare a 22-second single-voice piano melody on my 2.6 GHz pentium.
