Pro Audio Files

This App Will Improve Your Mixing Skills

Transcript
Hey, how’s it going? It’s Dan, founder of The Pro Audio Files, making my once a decade appearance on YouTube.

I wanted to take a minute today to let you know about an app I built before starting The Pro Audio Files called Quiztones, and it’s on sale this week. 40% off.

So it’s an ear training app that helps you recognize boosts and cuts in frequency on different kinds of source material, so you can kind of more intuitively use EQ, you’ll start getting cleaner mixes. I experienced it myself in just a few weeks of working on building it years ago. So I’m super confident that you’ll get a similar result from it.

I never really made a proper demo video for it, so in light of all of the apps being on sale this week, I thought I would, you know, kind of just run you through and show you how I work a little bit.

Alright, here I go.

So the app is split into three sections: Tones, which are just sine waves identification, gain, which is just changes in level and different source material, and EQ, which is boosts and cuts of different frequencies on various source material, including songs from your own music library.

So we can go here, we can start on Easy, which is just like, octave boosts and cuts, like, really drastic, and then we can go all the way to expert, which is more 1/3 octave, closer together, smaller boosts and cuts.

So you know, we can start here, there’s built in loops you can play with, basically this toggles the EQ on and off, and this is a loop, so…

And then you get scored based on which choice your answer was, so you know, if you get it on the first try, you get 100 points, that counts as 50, third was 25, fourth is zero, obviously.

So yeah, that’s that, but I want to show you how you can import songs from your music library here. So you can go — let’s do this, I don’t know if I can hear it on my MacBook speakers, but just pick a song here, it’s got some loops here from a sample library. You can quiz…

And so on. So yeah. The apps are 40% off this week. I just wanted to let you know, you getting Quiztones directly helps us bring you more and more free content on The Pro Audio Files.

So yeah, I really appreciate your support, and we’re looking forward to bringing you tons of new stuff. Feel free to leave a comment on anything you want to see on the site, or with Quiztones, or how awkward the 20th take of this video was, and yeah! I hope you have a great day. Take care.
