Quiztones is a frequency ear training app for amateur and professional audio engineers, producers, and musicians. Quiztones uses tones and frequency-altered noise and musical loops (including source material from your own music library) to train your ears and help develop more acute listening and frequency recognition skills.

Quiztones will...

• Sharpen your ears & frequency recognition skills
• Improve your mixing and EQ chops
• Prevent noise and frequency buildup in your mixes & recordings
• Eliminate the need to sweep for frequencies

Quiztones cleverly uses quizzes to engage users in training exercises. Track your progress with the built-in score log.

Each EQ quiz includes four trainers:

• Easy frequency boost (+10 dB)
• Hard frequency boost (+5 dB)
• Hard frequency cut (-10 dB)
• Expert frequency boost (+5dB – 1/3 octave)

New in 1.1: Train your ears to identify boost & cut between 1-16dB with our new Gain Level Comparison quizzes!

Quizzes included in 1.1:

• iTunes/Music Library
• Tones
• Pink Noise
• Piano
• Drums
• Strings
• Strings 2
• Orchestra
• Electric Bass
• Upright Bass
• Female Vocals
• Electric Guitar
• Acoustic Guitar


"Turns out, this app offers everything offered in that Berklee class of mine… in an app!"

- Damian Erskine, No Treble

The Quiztones app is far and away the best app I've purchased. It's an incredible tool for all audio engineers and musicians ... My mixing has improved by leaps and bounds after just a few weeks with Quiztones.

- Austin McAllister

"As a professional audio engineer my most prized tool is my ears. Developing this acute sense of understanding can take years of development. With Quiztones, both aspiring and professional engineers alike can now develop and sharpen the skill(s) of 'truly musical hearing' while on-the-go. Quiztones is both fun and educational, merging the two into an addictive and beneficial mobile app."

- Edward J "UK" Nixon (Audio Engineer for Grammy Award winning J.U.S.T.I.C.E League)

A professional Audio Engineer of 10 years, I've come across many ear training devices, blind tests, and software. This app is TOPS! Highly recommended! The developers are serious about what they do. You will not be disappointed!

- Joel Avery

Interesting and useful application - Pro and home audio enthusiasts should both find this tool entertaining and useful. The guys at Audiofile were very quick to help me adjust my Mac audio setup (If you hear audio samples played at dubspeed, be sure your sample rate and bit depth settings are correct). Great job, and look forward to future enhancements.

Version 1.5.3
Review by Weslby

Overpriced and unstable - This app is a great idea, and it looks great. However in the first 24 hours of use, it has crashed 10 times. Also, $10 is way too much for such a simple app that barely does anything. What you see in the screenshots is the full extent of the app. I regret my purchase.

Review by Davemuse19

Invaluable - This app has proven a great resource. The hardest part of mixing for me is identifying tones I want to change by applying EQ in some way. I finally feel like I can start to hone in more easily, and undoubtedly, with some more training, I will hear what I should be hearing more quickly. That will take (and has already taken to some degree) a lot of guesswork and trial and erorr out of the process. I highly recommend this app to anyone working in audio.
