Do anyone of you know if such a program exist? I'm aware are several free apps and webpages that do this, but I'm looking for something that you can use with what I think is referred to as external midi (using a software synth in logic pro) , and not the built in synth on my Mac.

/thanks

not sure what a "scale degree trainer" should train, but have a look at this one:

Here is a different way that beginners can use ‘Functional Ear Trainer’. The task is not to ‘test’ the learner. The task involves learning, through imitation, the sounds (‘personalities’) of scale degree tones, one at a time and within tonal contexts. Here is how it is done:
First, you need to set the program up to do it. For ‘Key’, select ‘Major’ and ‘Random Key’. At ‘Note Choices’ select only the first note of the scale. Select ‘Always’ at ‘Play Cadence’. This setup will only play first scale degree notes (the all-important ‘tonic’) in randomly selected keys.
‘Start’ the training and carefully listen to each of the notes (to begin with, they will always be the tonic of some major scale). Also, sing each one. When singing, use scale degree numbers, solfeggio, note names or a single syllable like: ‘to’, ‘so’, ‘fa’, ‘la’, ‘go’ etc. Better still, use more than one of these options from time to time (some people find it difficult to sing the words of a song when they have always used the same syllable for a scale degree). You can press ‘Repeat the Question’ as often as you want. It is best to do this training in frequent brief sessions. From time to time, change the instrument in ‘Midi Setup’ to learn the sounds when instruments with different timbres are used. Only when you can quickly and accurately predict (in advance) how the tonic is about to sound, should you start to learn the sound of second scale degree notes. This may take a number of sessions.
To internalise the sound of a second scale degree note, do the same as above, except that this time you should select only the second scale degree from ‘Note Choices’. Sing the notes you hear.
Also, try singing the tonic after you have sung the relevant scale degree note (applies to scale degrees 2 – 7).
Continue as above for all the scale degrees of the major scale. After the major scale, you could try the above with one of the minor scales.
The above will provide a good foundation for when you use the program to train yourself to identify notes within scales, i.e. without knowing in advance which notes of a scale they are (when you will be ‘testing’ yourself).

Im confused. Is that the android app? How can one use midi on ze phone? Appärently one can hook up google chrome with midi. But that's beyond my patience.
