11 Powerful Binaural Dream Programs combined with included Ambient Music, Nature Sounds & iTunes Music. Programs for Lucid Dreaming & different levels of dream vividness.

11 Advanced Binaural Dream Induction Programs in One App! Dream Inducer combines soothing ambient sounds with powerful binaural sequences to synchronize your brainwaves with frequencies associated with 11 different levels of dreaming. * Universal iOS App for iPhone/Pad * Headphones or Earbuds must be worn for binaural tones to be effective.

* Each program includes a sleep induction phase and then introduces progressively higher frequency Alpha, Beta, and Theta dream sequences to stimulate increasingly vivid dreams.

* To combine Brainwaves and Ambience with Audio from Another App use the 'Ambience + Other App' background mode.

* To use just Brainwaves and Audio from Another App use the "Other App" option for the Background Mode.

** How Binaural Brainwave Entrainment Works **
Through the process of brainwave entrainment human brainwave frequencies can be synchronized with a frequency associated with a target mental state. These Brainwave frequencies are too low for the human ear to hear, however, these low-frequencies can be perceived by the human brain if two different audible frequencies are played separately into each ear with headphones or earbuds. For example, the human ear can't directly perceive the 2 Hz Delta-wave frequency associated with deep sleep, but if you wear headphones with one side playing a 135 Hz tone and the other playing a 137 Hz tone your brain will perceive the 2 Hz difference between those frequencies as a periodic beat. As you listen, your brainwaves will begin to match that frequency, inducing the associated mental state.

Dream Inducer improves upon basic binaural techniques by layering multiple signals and then assembling these into sequences of programs that combine to create extremely unique experiences.

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.

Even works on my dog!

At first I was a bit skeptical about this app but I decided to give it a shot. It is SO worth 1.99. I've struggled with sleeping in the past and this app has worked wonders. It's helped me fall asleep super fast and it's extremely effective. I remember the first night I tried it and I instantly fell asleep. I had it on the beaches waves setting and as I was drifting I found it so easy to just picture myself on a beach. After trying this for a while and successfully falling asleep easily each time, I decided to try it on my dog to see if it would have the same effect. As I was petting her, I turned it on and she just stretched out on the ground and fell asleep. This app is truly amazing and I HIGHLY recommend getting it if you or your pet struggle with sleeping.

Works for me!

I’ve had on-going sleep issues for years. Busy days lead to difficulties turning off and putting the day behind me. I used to use a white noise machine and that helped a bit, but then I discovered this app. I’ve been using it now every night for close to a year and it has made a huge difference in my quality of sleep (I use it with noise-canceling earbuds). It’s just the right combination of distraction and relaxation. Also, in a recent update (prior to the Sept. 21 update), a small audio problem cropped up. I contacted the developer and got an immediate and personalized response AND they fixed the problem with this most recent update. This is an awesome app that I highly recommend!!

2 apps, 3 sounds at the same time. Any music app supported! (ADHD/Anxiety)

I use it to focus on tasks, not sleep, but it’d be good for that too.

Multi-channel sounds is exactly what I was needing. Since the multi-channel feature is EXTREMELY rare for iOS, I could not find this feature anywhere on the AppStore, so my desktop was the only way.

I like having music on at the same time as podcasts or ambience. This is impressive. They don’t even advertise the fact that any music app is supported for the background audio channel, they should lol. And I would have paid more than $2 for how much I needed this functionality, to be honest.
