Background Audio

Smooth Start: When settings are loaded from disk, or a sound is added for the first time or cleared the volume is automatically reduced smoothly to zero the audio file is loaded / cleared and the volume is smoothly brought back to it's previous level. This ensures that there are no jarring or abrupt changes in volume that may startle. We refer to this effect as "smooth start".

Smooth Start can be disabled via Options

You can rapidly select previously opened background audio files with a couple of clicks. Audio files available for re-selection are displayed in the "File locations" panel in the middle of the setup screen. When you click on the audio filename the currently playing audio file will be stopped and the selected audio file will be played.

Binaural sound (Low frequency audio) (V5.3+)

Binaural sounds are sounds that are perceived within the mind when listening to combinations of sound frequencies. The effects range from feeling alert through to very relaxed depending on the combination of frequencies being played. Binaural sounds are also often known as "low frequency audio" or "mind sync audio".

Panning and smooth start do not apply to to Binaural sounds and the volume is set at whatever the system volume is. It is therefore important to ensure that the system volume is set as low as possible before playing Binaural sounds. A slider to control the system volume has been provided (Windows 2000+).

To play a Binaural sound click on the "Wave" icon, select a file and click on OK. To stop playing a Binaural sound click on the round "Stop" icon. There are many sample files provided.

For editing options see the Binaural sound page
