First, I’m looking for an app which displays whether the notes in a short passage are sung in tune or sharp/flat. The idea is that the app displays (say) a 5-note phrase (e.g. CDEGC) and that the individual then sings it. The app displays which notes were sung in tune or not and then plays the correct pitches. Obviously, the app needs to have a built-in tolerance, so that a discrepancy of +/- 2 cents registers as being in tune. The app could display the singer’s effort in some way.
Secondly, the singer could program a short phrase into the app (note pitches only, not rhythm) which is proving difficult. This is then played back by the app so that:
a) the singer can be helped to learn a tricky melody;
b) intonation can be checked for those phrases which always go flat!
Is there anything out there – or people who love inventing these things?

I was hoping to find a karaoke-like program or website that would display a graph line of the note pitches and as you sang, your own pitches would also show up graphically so you could see where you matched or fell to either side of the pitch. Of course, you’d have to somehow be able to input your choice of song – I wasn’t looking to sing disco hits of the 90’s so much as Monteverdi! Absolutely no luck finding what is seemingly just a fantasy in my head…. but I’ll eagerly follow this thread and see if anything is recommended!June 30, 2017 at 6:43 am #538357
My company See-A-Dot Music Publishing is currently developing a sight-singing app for choristers. I was happy to read your post because I think your desires would be a good addition to what we have in mind. I particularly like the idea of a customizable melody.
The app won’t be available in the near future, unfortunately, but if you are interested in becoming a tester for it when we get to that stage send me an email at email@example.com
