Start Training
Click Play on a track, then click ‘Start’ to start a ten-question training session.
FREQUIA has changed to Equalizer view.
Note the ‘Start’ button has changed to a ‘Stop’ button. Click ‘Stop’ at any time during training to end the training session. You will be warned that if you stop in the middle of a training session, you will lose your performance data for this session.
Monitoring the Bypass signal

The Bypass button lit up when you clicked Start and you are now listening to the Bypass signal (the signal without equalization). The current question number (1 - in the center of the interface) has an orange square around it.
Click the Question button. You are now listening to the equalized Question signal, which is the Bypass signal with equalization applied at a random* frequency. The type of equalization that has been added to the Question signal depends on the training setup.
*As Adaptive Training is switched off by default, the frequency is randomly selected.
Monitoring the Question signal
FREQUIA defaults to the following training setup upon launch:
  • Filter Selection: Parametric Equalizer
  • Parameter Selection: Frequency only
  • Frequency Resolution: 2-Octave Bands (Easy)
  • Q/Slope Resolution: Low (Easy)
  • Training Mode: Matching
Click here for detailed information on how to modify training settings.
For each question in this ten-question training session, a Parametric Equalizer is applied to the Question signal (as per the default Filter Selection setting), at one of five frequencies (as per the default Frequency Resolution setting). Your task is to identify only the frequency of the applied filter (as per the Parameter Selection) by adjusting the Frequency control.
As the default Parameter Selection is Frequency only, you don’t have to identify the Gain or Q values in this training setup. You will note the Gain and Q controls are greyed out. During this training session, the Gain of the equalizer is fixed at +6 dB and the Q value is fixed at 0.8. These parameters can be changed to Variable if desired.
Click the Question button. You are now listening to the equalized Question signal, which is the Bypass signal with equalization applied at a random* frequency. The type of equalization that has been added to the Question signal depends on the training setup.
Click the Response button. You are now listening to the equalized Response signal, which is the Bypass signal with your equalization applied. Any adjustments you make to the Equalizer controls, in this case, Frequency, will be heard while monitoring the Response signal. You will also see the frequency response graph change when you modify the Frequency control (this graph can be hidden).
Monitoring the Response signal
In the default Matching Mode, you must match the Response signal to the Question signal; you can switch between Bypass, Question, and Response signals as many times as needed.
Adjust the Frequency control so that the Response signal is identical to the Question signal, then click the Submit button.
Correct answer display
If you were correct, the blue frequency response graph, the question number, and the value under the Frequency dial will all change to green.
Incorrect answer display
If you were incorrect, the blue frequency response graph will change to red, and a second frequency response graph will appear in green to indicate the correct answer. The question number and the value under the Frequency dial will change to red.
Additionally, the correct frequency will be displayed in green at the top of the frequency response graph.
In advanced training scenarios when training on multiple parameters (e.g., frequency and gain), you will only be marked as correct if all your parameter answers were correct. A correct frequency response but an incorrect gain response will, however, still be counted as a correct frequency response in the performance analytics (all parameters are stored and analyzed independently).
Click the Next button to start the next question. Repeat the process by clicking through the Bypass, Question, and Response signals, and adjusting the Frequency control so that the Response signal sounds identical to the Question signal, then check your answer by clicking the Submit button.
