Hello everyone,

Can anyone explain me what "interval barks" are about? Seems like rules are pretty simple, but anyways i've stuck on the first level. It doesn't matter if i'm trying with my vocal or my midi keyboard, i can't even hit a single point. I might be pretty bad vocalist -ok, but is there something else that i am missing? What is the key for this game?

Would be much appreciated if someone could help me, feel free to send PM's if it's better for you.

I struggled with this game at first as well because they wanted me to sing a perfect unison and the notes were too low for me to sing. So I had to adjust the pitch range. Maybe it's something similar for you?

might be worthwhile to contact support and ensure everything on your computer is set up properly

I had to switch browsers to get it to work on my computer. I doubt you're so bad that you can't hit a single point :)

Thanks guys for your feedback. Aprreciating a lot!

I just figure out that it must be something wrong with my PC. I'm working with Win10Pro. I tried several different configurations, like turning off firewall, using skype microphone, switching browsers etc. and still couldn't get the solution.

The thing that made me think it's something about my voice or so, was that i saw graphic soundforms while playing "interval barks". But seems like even if tonegym is receiving sounds from my side, it doens't process it (?).

I also tried this option: https://www.tonegym.co/account/pitch
And there i realised it must be something wrong - I saw waveforms, but note's and frequency were not changing.

I gave it a shot with my phone, and eureka! It's working there. At least now i know where the problem is, i just need to keep investigating what is the cause. I'll let you know as soon as i solve it.

I'm just sharing with you, because maybe someone has the same problem and is searching for help as well.

PS. Sorry if my english is hurting your eyes, im trying my best! ;)

Good you got the problem solved. I was gonna say that in the beginning I was failing all the time because sometimes I would go to a different octave without even realizing...
And your English es great, would love to see anyone else writing in Polish.

I'd got problems with the solvege and solved it by changing to edge-browser, which I normaly don't use. There it worked.

If you are close, it will place a horizontal line close to the line it wants you to match. If you are seeing no horizontal lines, then the issue is probably technical, like the browser, your microphone, etc. If you see close by lines, then you just need to adjust the pitch.
