Intervallogic encourages practice in the high repetition, fast-paced mode that is difficult to create in a classroom or private instruction setting. Ideally, a user will work within a given exercise for approximately 5 to 10 minutes maximum in one session, but may return several times a day for more practice. The scores for each exercise are automatically recorded once the exercise ends, and can be reviewed or archived at a later time.
In the basic identification exercises, chords or intervals are generated and presented as multiple choice options. The overall framework is to achieve 100 correct answers within a 5 minute time limit. There is no option to repeat incorrect answers, the user is intentionally moved forward into the next question. Immediate feedback to each response occurs visually with the movement of the progress bars, and in the event of an incorrect response, the correct answer is briefly highlighted before the next question is played.
While not intended exclusively for use in the Royal Conservatory system, where applicable exercises have levels matching the grade requirements for ear-training of the Royal Conservatory of Music (Toronto).
