£9.75 GBP (Approx $15 USD / €11) instant download
Bilat is a very simple software utility to rapidly generate bilateral audio from any sound source eg an audio file or an audio CD. Bilat is free for 5 days - after that you will need to purchase EMDR Pro to generate bilateral audio including beep sounds (Bilat is free for EMDR Pro users) or you may purchase a stand-alone licence if you wish.
Bilateral audio simply means audio that tracks or pans from the left to the right speakers and back again.
The system operates with the following versions of Windows:
- Windows 7 / 8
- Windows XP Media Centre Edition 2005
- Windows XP (Home or Pro)
- Windows NT 4 (With service pack 6a or later applied)
- Windows ME
- Windows 2000 (With service pack 2 or later applied)
- Windows 98
- MAC compatibility depends on the level of Windows emulation installed for PC version
Windows media player may be required so Bilat can make use of the Codecs that are installed at the same time.
Just select a sound file by clicking on the "Add" button, then click on the "Auto pan" checkbox and decrease the rate of bilateral panning using the slider if the panning rate is too fast for you. You can play more or less all sound files / types including audio on a CD. (If you are a registered EMDR Pro user the default location for audio / video files will be set automatically to your shared library).
You can bilaterally pan sound from video files and there is simple visual tracking via the slider bar at the top of the window. This means you can see the panning as it happens.
All sounds loop to infinity
The panning rate is limited to about 60% of maximum until EMDR Pro is installed and registered.
