EarMaster ApS just released a major update 7.1 for its award-winning music theory and ear training software EarMaster 7. EarMaster 7.1 is free for all EarMaster 7 licensees on PC and Mac and adds dozens of new features and improvements.
CLAP RHYTHMS INTO A MICROPHONE Upon overwhelming popular demand, microphone input for rhythm clapping exercises has finally been added to EarMaster 7! Users can now complete their rhythmic sight-reading and rhythm clap-back exercises by clapping their hands in front of a microphone. The software, thanks to its exclusive audio detection algorithms, will analyze the recorded claps and give the user a detailed feedback on his performance.
445 NEW CLASSICAL MUSIC SCORES EarMaster’s Score Library now includes over 445 scores for Classical music, including works by Bach, Mozart, Haydn, Monteverdi and many more. These scores have been added in collaboration with the French Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers (CNAM)and their excellent music library project NEUMA.
These scores can be used for any melodic ear training, sight-singing or rhythmic training exercise in EarMaster 7. For example, users can train to sight-sing 4-part Bach chorales by singing their voice while being accompanied by the other 3 voices. The software will analyze the user’s sung notes in real-time and give a detailed evaluation of the user’s pitch and rhythmic accuracy.
MUSICXML IMPORT NOW SUPPORTS DYNAMICS EarMaster now imports and interprets both the general sound dynamics values and the individual note dynamics values included in MusicXML files. This enables a smoother, more musical and nuanced playback of scores.
AVAILABILITY EarMaster 7.1 is a free update for all EarMaster 7 users on PC and Mac. To obtain it, users must start EarMaster while connected to the internet and follow the on-screen instructions. EarMaster 5 or EarMaster 6 licensees can also seize the occasion to upgrade to the new version 7.1 for half the price of a regular license: 30€ instead of 59.95€ (including VAT) in the EU or US$ 30 instead of US$ 59.95 (+ tax) in the rest of the world.
