Description

22 Powerful Mind Altering Binaural Programs to help achieve incredible states of mind. Includes Zen Meditation, Mindfulness, Theta Meditation & Lucid Dreaming.

Combine Mind Altering Binaural Sequences with Soothing Nature Sounds, Ambient Music, your own iTunes Music (with the built-in iTunes playlist creator), or Audio from apps like Spotify and Audio Book Readers. * Powerful Binaural Programs for Lucid Dreaming, Mindful Meditation, Dreamy Sleep, Astral Projection, Zen Meditation and much more! * Universal app with built-in UIs for iPad, iPhone/iPod Touch, iPhone 5/6/6+ * Different states of mind are associated with specific brainwave frequencies that would inaudible if played directly, but can be induced by playing two different audible binaural tones into each ear, which, after being processed by the brain, are perceived as an inaudible low frequency beat matching the target brainwave frequency. As you listen your brainwaves fall into step with this inaudible beat, and after several minutes synchronize with the target frequency.

Brain Wave Altered State uses the most advanced multi-stage binaural sequences available, combined with the flexibility to choose from a range of relaxing ambient backgrounds, other audio apps, or your own iTunes Music, allowing your mind you to relax and synchronize with your desired state. It achieves this using our unique process called Progressive Brainwave Entrainment.

*** Progressive Brainwave Entrainment ***

Progressive Brainwave Entrainment algorithms use layers of frequencies and carrier signals assembled in precise sequences to create profoundly unique experiences. Each program gently brings your brainwave frequencies to your desired state using a more natural frequency progression.

*** Advanced Features ***

- 22 Brainwave programs each specially designed for a different situation and desired mental state.

- 21 ambient background sounds to choose from.

- Independently adjustable ambient sound volume.

- Visual timer countdown indicator.

- Automatic storage of preferred brainwave program and ambient background.

- Ability to set your own custom program duration.


* Programs Included *

- Chakra Meditation: A series of balanced, meditative brainwave programs each taking you to a different, deeper meditative state, ending in the ultimate state of meditation and calm.

- Euphoric Bliss: The ultimate brainwave program designed to gently bring your mind through a series of uplifting states, culminating in a state of euphoria and bliss. This program will truly make your mood soar.

- Lucid Beta Dreams: This program combines elements of meditative and dreaming frequencies to create a state where you can experience waking dreams and truly escape. Lucid dreaming is a very unique state of consciousness where you will find yourself slipping in out of dreams while remaining aware of them.

- Tranquil Thoughts: Designed simply to relax, this program progressively drops your mind into deeper states of relaxation to help you unwind and reduce stress.

- Inspired Creativity: Creates an elevated state of creativity by combining a series of focus, concentration and meditative frequencies to help you open your mind to new ideas and boost creativity.

- Floating: A unique meditative program that combines lower frequency meditative sequences with higher frequency lucid dreaming programs to create a relaxed, yet heightened state of awareness.

- Quiet Mind: Designed to help you clear your mind and empty your thoughts for a deeply relaxed state of mind.

- Mindful Meditation: Achieve a calm, centered state of mindfulness.

- Other Programs:

- Morning Zen

What’s New

Version 10.0.3

This update includes UI improvements for iPad. The 10.0 update also includes several new settings as well as new binaural programs and background audio. The new options are located in the app's General Settings, which is accessed by tapping the wrench-button on the main screen:
* Reduce Other App Volume - Option to enable audio ducking which instructs iOS to reduce the volume of other apps by 50% while this app is playing. iOS does not allow the volume reduction to be customized.
* Wave Amplitude Boost - Option to boost the amplitude of the binaural carrier waves by a fixed amount to provide an additional increase in volume. This option is provided as an on/off toggle setting.
* Carrier Signal (2 Options)- Option to switch between the default low-frequency binaural carrier wave and a medium carrier wave of ~250 Hz. This will not alter the frequency of the binaural tones. Example: A 1 Hz tone on a low-frequency carrier uses 121 Hz Left and 120 Hz Right, but with a Mid-carrier uses 221 Hz Left and 220 Hz Right.
* Option to export time spent listening to Relaxation and Meditation programs to the Apple Health App as Mindful Minutes.

* New Backgrounds *
- White Noise
- Brown Noise
- Energy Flow
- Solar Waves

- Supports Family Share
- Combine Brainwaves with Ambience and Another App by selecting background mode 'Ambience + Other App'
- To use Another App for the Background Audio choose 'Other App'.
- When using background modes that allow other audio apps or iTunes Music to be playing Lockscreen controls will only affect iTunes or the other app.
- If the audio stops when the app is backgrounded or the screen locks please restart the device with a full shutdown as this is the result of low RAM memory which causes iOS to suspend background audio.


* How it Works *


During the entrainment process, two different carrier tones are played into the left and right ears. The frequency difference between these tones matches the brainwave frequency of the target state of mind. The listener will hear these carrier tones as an audible tone, however, when processing these two different tones the human brain will perceive the small frequency difference between the tones as an inaudible periodic beat. When exposed to this beat the listener's brainwaves will begin to synchronize with the beat frequency. What allows the human brain to perceive this beat is our directional hearing system, located in the brain stem. The brain's directional hearing system calculates frequency shifts between sound entering the left and right ear to quickly locate the direction of a sound, but when that difference is rhythmic, as with binaural tones, the brain synchronizes with the pattern. This process is more effective in the presence of background noise or ambience, which allows humans to hear and locate even subtle sounds, like an animal moving nearby in a forest that is filled with noise.


As an example, the human ear can't directly perceive the .5 - 2 Hz Delta-wave frequencies associated with deep sleep because it is well below the human hearing range, but if you wear headphones or earbuds with one side playing a 135 Hz tone and the other playing a 136 Hz tone your brain will perceive the 1 Hz difference between those frequencies as a periodic beat, in this case matching a low delta wave frequency associated with sleep. As you listen, your own brainwaves will begin to match that frequency.


Warning: Do not use this app while driving or operating machinery.
Note: If your vehicle Auto-Plays connected devices use the Ambience+Other background mode.

Works for me!

I’ve never used a binaural beat or brainwave app before. I heard it helps with relaxation and sleep, two areas I have problems with. I’m a severe insomniac and find it hard to relax at night, but this app really helps! When I listen to certain states, I feel all tingly. I’ve never done astral projection before but I was able to achieve it the first time I used that brainwave program! I was able to fall asleep within 30 minutes and was able to recall much of my dreams once I woke up. Cheers to a healthy sleep schedule!

Daily Essential w/bugs

I love this app! I use it a few times everyday including waking up and bedtime.

I listen to it on n 15 min increments,
which is how I pace my morning activities. Periodically the timer doesn't start (or it will stop after :15 seconds), which I don’t discover until 20 or 30 mins. Also, when changing the timer (ex from 15 mins to 5 mins) the timer wont change. You have to press play and then change it. The timer has also randomly changed to 2 hours a few times.

Works!

These apps are so dynamic, allowing you to select your own background music or selecting from many great calming sounds.

You don’t need to wear earphones. I put speakers under my bed and go to sleep with it, wake up with it and sometimes put in on in the background while I’m working. The levels allow you to turn up or down either the music or the vibrations.

Sleep is better quality and I’ve started remembering my dreams again. I can use it to focus or get motivated in the morning.
