Concerns about games that require you to sing:

I've been a tone gym user for a few months now and I've really been enjoying the listening games, but I've stayed away from the singing games because I'm worried that my computer mic is not good enough to accurately pick up the pitch and I don't want to learn wrong.

Has anyone else had this concern/what alleviated it for you?

Thank you

I’d suggest trying it and seeing if it’s accurate
You could also test it with an instrument or another person for feedback

You can also test with an online tuner for example.
Also another quick suggestion: I don't have my mic permanently plugged in and I'm lazy to do so for those few exercises per day, so when I'm doing singing exercises, I just load tonegym on my smartphone and do those there.

My suggestion is to have wired headset with a dedicated flip-up microphone. Like the ones you use during work calls/meetings or gaming. The main benefit of the mic is obvious - positioned near the source - mouth - so you have least amount of unwanted noise etc. You definitely don't need a studio microphone. About the concern - just play the game. If you do it consistently you will became more and more accurate with the intonation. The note detection is not perfect on TG - my issue is it sometimes detects P5 instead of P1 - but is definitely usable and helps you to be more on point.

So I was able to finally achieve 90%+ percentile on every game. In some cases it wasn't so hard and I had a lot of fun. In others not so much 😀. Here are my thoughts on some of the games. Do you agree or have completely different opinion?

Just curious if anyone else is missing badges on their profile?

I’ve been missing my “complete collection” badge and TG Hero badge for quite some time.

Maybe my Profile is a problem child or something - but wonder how many people experience this?

Bummer! I only have 2 badges and they're still displaying.

I haven't had such experience, but I've seen other members' reports from time to time...I only miss a few medals I lost in the last minute!

I have been missing my complete collections badge too - not sure what to do about it
It took me 9 months to get to level 5 in Calibrator. 😅
Even motivating me to do the execrise was hard, let alone failing repeatedly at this low level.
But eventually there is progress.
Level 6, I'm comming 💪

you get a red star at level 100 for this game, but the difficulty doesn't really change much after about level 10.

This was a hard one for me, too. Just the amount of time to get through it & the concentration it takes make it hard. You got level 6 and beyond - stick with it!
