The process of digital audio editing, especially with classical or acoustic music using a source-destination method, offers an excellent opportunity for ear training. Music editing involves making transparent connections or splices between takes of a piece of music, and often requires specifying precise edit locations by ear. The paper outlines how aspects of digital editing can be used systematically as an ear training method, even out of the context of an editing session. It describes a software tool based on audio editing techniques to create an effective ear training method offering benefits that transfer beyond audio editing.
