Spectral-based technical ear training (TET) programs generally require the user to identity, by means of matching or absolute identification, one or more parameters of an equalizer applied to a stimulus signal. Numerous TET programs have been developed to date, targeted at either consumers, employees (for in-house training), or students (delivered within educational institutions). Corey’s 2010 suite of programs featured the first commercially available TET programs developed using Max software, deployed as stand-alone applications on CD-ROM. This paper details the development of a new TET program developed in Max, successfully deployed in the Apple App Store. “SAE Parametric Equalizer Training” is a TET application designed to teach students to identify the center frequency of a parametric equalizer applied to any imported audio files.
