iTunes Description:

hearEQ builds your EQ skills to professional levels using custom ear training exercises, created just for you from your favorite songs. Simple, powerful, and fast, hearEQ is perfect for ear training on the go. Named one of "The best iPhone and iPad apps for musicians" (, here's what the experts have to say about hearEQ:

"When I found hearEQ, I knew this was a game-changer. From the ease of use and the ability to use your own music selections, hearEQ is perfectly designed to be the go-to choice for developing your ear. My students have shown tremendous improvements in mixing and productions, and I completely attribute this to hearEQ. Thanks Ten Kettles! Keep up the great work. You are making a difference!" -Chandler Bridges, Ph.D., Professor (The Los Angeles Film School); Audio engineer (Will Smith, Aaliyah, Johnny Mathis, P-Diddy, J-Lo, Bette Midler, LeAnn Rimes, and more) with two Grammy-winning albums.

“After half an hour with the app I had a noticeable improvement to my score, but I was also thinking in much clearer terms too!” -Tim Webb,

“This handy app is one of the greatest tools I've seen for helping you hear exactly how EQ adjustments affect your sound. Wish I would have had this when I was first learning how to mix live sound.” -James Wasem,

"hearEQ…makes the experience of ear training enjoyable enough to seem like fun. [It's] a great educational tool." -Tom Flint, Sound on Sound: The World's Best Recording Technology Magazine

“The principle behind hearEQ is beautifully straightforward…even with a little repetition, things do start to improve and I suspect if you were to build some hearEQ into your daily musical routine, you would soon reap some positive benefits.” -John Walden,


Every frequency range has a color, a quality, a character. For sound engineers, musicians, and other enthusiasts, knowing how to apply this to an equalizer (EQ) can make a transformational change to your sound—whether you're mixing a live concert, a recording, or even playing music through iTunes. (VIDEO @

It's a simple app with a powerful promise: if you learn the qualities of each frequency band—for example, cutting 4kHz puts sound in the background—then you can make equalization work for you, and truly transform your sound into something professional and beautiful.

hearEQ uses your favorite songs on your device to create custom ear training exercises that a) teach you all about frequency bands, and b) help you really hone your EQ skills. A standard 10-band or 30-band* equalizer is used, just like you'd find in iTunes and on many professional sound mixers. Your song will be played back with a simple equalization applied—and you guess what it was!

> Was it really clear, maybe a bit hollow? Could be a 1000 Hz cut.

> Was it muddy? Maybe that's a 500 Hz boost.

> Was it really present, almost too in-your-face? Sounds like a 4kHz boost.

Ten questions, ten frequencies, and then you get a score. Want to focus on just a few frequency bands to start? You can do that too. Keep at it, and you'll be an EQ master in no time.

*The 30-band equalizer is part of the "Advanced EQ" module, available as an in-app purchase within hearEQ.

NOTE: hearEQ works with any unprotected track on your device, but access to protected tracks and cloud tracks (e.g., Apple Music) is not possible at this time. That said, hearEQ ships with a practice track built-in, so you'll be able to start EQing right away!

iTunes Description:

iLEP (Live Electronic Patch) is the result of many years of collaboration between composers and software engineers with the aim of creating a live-electronic instrument that shows its strongest musical performance in conjunction with an acoustic musical instrument and is especially suitable for use in concerts.

The first version of LEP was developed in Max-MSP by Wolfgang Heiniger and Thomas Kessler and later further developed by Thomas Seelig. Thomas Seelig then redesigned the original version and ported it for the iOS operating system to make the app runable on the iPad and thus accessible to a wide range of applications. Oliver Greschke joined later to help complete the app.


- Modular effect app with various routing and modulation options
- 6 different effects: 2x ring modulator, 2x filter (low, high, band), 2x pitch shifter, 2 delay, degrade, reverb, which can be precisely controlled graphically and by direct parameter input
- 16*16 patch-possibilities to route audio through different effects, like in a modular system
- Possible sound sources: Microphone/line in, sampler and pitch tracker, various test signals (sine, noise, sample)
- Various effect parameters can be modulated to different degrees (min... max) by a modulation source (e.g. Midi Express pedal): Excellent for live applications!
- An additional effect parameter can be modulated by midi notes
- Save, import, export and edit your own cue effect configurations
- Different cues can be combined to a set
- Import and management of own samples and entire sample libraries assigned to a set
- Import of midi files for modulation purposes
- Possibility to automatically run through different cues (presets) with time control using the "Autocue" function
- Possibility to quickly launch cues (presets) via Midi Bank and Midi program messages
- Stereo 3-way input equalizer (high shelf, peak notch, low shelf) to adjust input signals
- Master limiter at the end of the signal chain
- Audio bus and IAA capable (effect node)

PitchLab Guitar Tuner (FREE)

iTunes Description:

Hands-free tuning for guitar, ukulele and other musical instruments. Designed for novices and pros, fully featured, easy to use. Pro features are split into low cost upgrades so you can build your own tuning experience and buy only what you need.

Unique features help you work out the chords to new tunes, visualize the pitch and consistency of the human voice, violin or other instrument, or answer the questions "what notes am I humming", "what are those chords", "am I hitting all the notes in tune", "is my vibrato consistent" etc.

Multiple visualization modes:

Instrument: Combination chromatic ribbon tuner and string/note display for easy instrument tuning. Includes standard Guitar tuning for free with a custom tuning editor and database of common tunings for Guitar, Violin/Fiddle, Mandolin, Ukulele, Banjo, Bouzouki and Pedal Steel available as an upgrade.

Stage Tuner: A large, clear tuning display, optimized for hands-free operation at a distance and incorporating a true radial and waterfall strobe for unbeatable fine-tuning accuracy and responsiveness. Tap the display to change modes.

Chord Matrix (upgrade): Grid-based estimation display of common chord types (maj/min, maj7/min7, dom7/dim7), ideal for quickly determining the 'strum along' chords for a tune where the chords are reasonably clear.

Pitch Spectrogram (upgrade): Scrolling display of live sound analysis, showing the perceived pitch of a wide range of sound types (including human voices and singing).

Tone Generator (upgrade): An 8-octave, polyphonic keyboard display that enables you to play reference notes in the musical scale. Includes a selection of tone waveform types and the ability to quickly switch between single-note or multi-note mode.

Strobe Tuner (upgrade): A true 6-band, multi-mode strobe display combined with a chromatic ribbon tuner for rapid and extremely accurate hands-free instrument tuning. Tap the display to change modes.

Split Screen (upgrade): Split the screen and use any two tuning views at the same time (e.g. Pitch Spectrogram plus Chord Matrix for transcription work). Please note, this upgrade is only recommended for tablets or devices with large screens and only for users who have purchased one or more tuner view upgrades.

These visualization modes are easily accessed by swiping the screen left/right (or up/down, depending on the screen orientation). When available, split-screen mode is enabled/disabled by pressing a toggle button on the main display.
