It ALL Starts with your EARs…

Research shows that just 1.4% of producers actually make a career out of producing music. So almost 99% of you are focusing on the wrong thing. This is why most of you reading this will end up quitting production before you make anything great.

Let’s change it.

Courses, videos and over 40 interactive games designed and developed by professionals to test, train and enhance your auditory memory and listening skills.

How Does it Work?

1

You Watch

Short videos focus on how to listen for details in music and how processing such as transients, saturation, dynamics, transformers, tubes, EQ, reverb, delay, tape and distortion affect sounds.

2

You Play

You’re then presented with a series of courses containing games designed to test and develop your listening skills on each subject, and are awarded points and achievements for successful completion.

3

You Learn

This “Guess Method” has been in use for over 40 years and has a proven track record in training thousands of successful engineers. Our approach makes the process fun with a competitive edge!

The latest OSX (Big Sur) and the latest update to Safari are not fully compatible with HTML 5 Audio and you may experience missing audio. We recommend you use Chrome or Firefox with this site. We are working on updates.

Try It For Yourself

Take the test and find out how developed your skills are. Its a maximum of 25 questions (the better you perform the less questions there are.)

Test Your Listening Skills

Oops! It appears you’re on a mobile device. While our games can run on mobile devices, they require a larger screen than you’re currently using. We strongly recommend accessing this from a desktop computer.

Learn Your Way – At Your Own Pace.

Structured Approach.

The structured gym has been specifically designed to develop your basic listening skills into those of a seasoned industry professional.

Divided into a series of courses, each concentrates on the different aspects of listening development and features an intro video explaining how/what to listen for before the training lesson games begin. Once completed, you’re free to return to any course and take it again to keep on top of your newly developed skills.

Alternatively, if you have developed listening skills already, jump straight into the maintenance gym. No courses, no videos – just jump into any game to train and develop skills in the areas you feel you need the most help with.

Social Activity.

Ranks and points systems allow you to follow and monitor your skill progress, and these can be used to unlock further levels and games – including entry to the “elite gym” where the most skilled listeners battle it out.

Leaderboards and a weekly challenge gym offer the opportunity to show off your newly developed skills to friends, while an an enhanced in-built social system allows you to include your avatar, biography, add friends, message one another, feature your Mixcloud or Soundcloud and join any number of groups.

Groups are typically formed by colleges, schools and universities for both enrolled students and interested parties, keeping them updated on their latest activities.

Support the Audio Engineering Society

Established in 1948, the Audio Engineering Society develops, reviews and publishes engineering standards for the audio and related media industries. They are responsible for introducing many of the formats we all use in the recording industry today including AES3 (AES/EBU) and MADI (AES10).  This is an important organisation for anyone involved in audio and so for every new subscription we will donate up to $10 to the AES to help it continue developing devices or products for audio, and for persons working in audio content production.
