I am wondering if there is a “musician” (amateur okay) Java coder willing to volunteer time to help beta test a program that I wrote and hope to release soon on itch.io. The emphasis would be to check over the GUI.
Tone-Circle-Drone is a tool to help develop one’s intonation skills, but also can be used as an accompanying sound source for practicing or playing.
It’s scope includes:
teaching the ability to pick out (hear) harmonics from a complex tone, especially the fundamental from the overtones;
teaching the ability to distinguish equal-temperament intervals from “perfect” and well-tempered intervals;
using as a practice tool, with many features beyond current tools used for drone practice.
The tunings incorporated include:
“Just” intonation (integer ratios)
“first matching harmonic”
Well-Temperaments used in period music:
Indian shruti system
I’ll be checking folks in music theory and ear-training domains for much of the testing and review. But I think it would be really helpful to have someone with a good feel for GUIs (Swing in this case) to give it a go.
Please reply or message me if you are interested.
