Clamor 0.0.24

Clamor is software for musical ear training.
Clamor is software for musical ear training. The exercises currently available involve hearing intervals, hearing chords, and hearing notes relative to the tonic or the root of a chord.It runs on Linux and FreeBSD. It's written to be as platform-independent as possible, so it might be easy to port to Windows or MacOS X, but I haven't tried. As you see in the version number, this is an early prerelease version.

First, make sure to install the program "sox" and the Perl modules "Audio::Data", "Audio::Play", and "Clone". Probably you want to do use your distro's mechanisms for installing the Perl modules, but as a last resort, you can do a "make depend", which will try to use CPAN's crufty interface to install the relevant perl modules.

FreeBSD. The ports you need are audio/p5-Audio and devel/p5-Clone. FreeBSD was my original development system, so this should work fine.

Debian. On Debian, you're probably out of luck. Perl's Audio module is not in Debian's packages, and installing it from the CPAN sources just results in crashes.

Main features:

  • The exercises currently available involve hearing intervals, hearing chords, and hearing notes relative to the tonic or the root of a chord.
  • Intervals and notes are heard in context: either the tonality is estabished first by playing a cadence, or the note or interval is heard as part of an actual melody.
  • The software comes with a synthesizer that uses prerecorded, digitized tones from actual acoustic instruments.
