Musical Dictation - Options and Settings
With the new version 3.0 of Musical Dictation you can select between Atonal and Tonal dictations:
This is the classic mode of operation of Musical Dictation. The dictation uses the intervals selected by the user for the note jumps without taking into account any key.
This is the default mode and is selected in the Tone control by selecting Atonal
Select the intervals you want to appear in the dictation. It is better to start with easy intervals as the semitone (1) or the tone (2) and gradually add new intervals.
Selecting between Tone Major or Tone Natural Minor, availables in the Tone control, the dictation is adjusted exclusively to the intervals of that tone.
The notes that form the key and that can appear in the dictation appear on the screen. If you want dictations without alterations you can use tones such as C Major or A Minor.
Change the type of dictation between Atonal or Tonal (Major and Natural Minor).
