I've just today downloaded EarMaster for Mac and I think this is just what I need with one big reservation. I want to use this to learn sight reading while playing a fretless electric bass. It seems to be what I need, but the pitch tolerance with the program's listen seems to be very unforgiving. Even when I'm being tested on the same pitch two times in a row, one note will register correct, and another will not, even though I have not moved my finger. I would like to purchase this software, but I need to know if there is a way to widen the pitch tolerance. I'm not trying to perfect my pitch on fretless bass with this program, I simply need to be able to match the note on the staff to the note on my fingerboard.
Need technical advice? Don't know where to find an option? Here is the right place to ask.

Hi Joe, A version 7 is coming up. The pitch detection has been greatly improved in that version. Notice however that the deepest tones will still be a problem for the software. Even dedicated hardware pitch detection systems can have problems identifying deep tones from a bass. But from the deep G or maybe A and up, it should be all fine.
