Binaural beats are simply two sine waves played at two di erent frequencies into two di erent ears. Listening to
binaural beats through headphones has been scienti cally shown to alter a listener’s biofeedback of brain wave
patterns known as EEG [1,2,7]. The theory is that the brain interprets the mathematical di erence between the two
waves and "synchronizes" with it. This "brain wave synchronization" or "brainwave entrainment" has shown great
potential for human health [3,4,5,6]. For example, you can use these tones to help you relax, fall asleep, be creative,
be focused, or even connect to higher levels of consciousness!

What are Isochronic Tones?


Isochronic tones are similar to binaural beats, but they only use a single sine wave. This sine wave is turned on and
o rapidly the same number of times as the frequency interpreted by the binaural beats. For example, at 8hz, the
tone is turned on and o 8 times per second. Unlike binaural beats, isochronic tones do not require headphones
and work if you are deaf in one ear.

How do I use these tones?


Binaural beats and Isochronic tones are frequency-speci c. Certain frequencies relate to certain brain wave
patterns and therefore certain feelings. Often, binaural beats are used within larger productions, such as the
meditations o ered by Guided Meditation Treks. For example, the CDs on this web site
(http://www.cdbaby.com/Artist/GuidedMeditationTreks) and their iOS application counterparts have the binaural
beats programmed into the material. For example, if the meditation is trying to get you to focus on a visualization
exercise, then the appropriate frequencies will be used within the meditation at that point in time. The frequencies
often shift through the course of a meditation to continue you on your "trek." However, the Binuaral application
lets you create your own frequencies. This gives you total freedom, but it also means it helps to know what you're
doing. This page is meant to give you a reference so you can pick frequencies for states you which to achieve on
your own, as well as learn about the concept. We can give you a sh with the CDs, but this app teaches you how to
sh!

To switch between binaural beats and isochronic tones


iOS: You can either use the link provided at the top of the screen, or you can use the "swipe" gesture.
Android: Change the radio selector
** Note: Binaural Beats Mode Requires Headphones!! **

The Android App also includes a Pink Noise button, which allows you to listen to a soothing noise track
while the binaural beats play, or on its own.

Binaural / Isochronic Beat Frequency


Arguably, this is more important than the carrier frequency. It is the frequency at which your brain "synchronizes."

Android: You can enter the beat frequency in the text box on the right above the "beat frequency" label. The
number below shows what's playing
iOS: If you click on one of the buttons at the bottom of the screen, then the Binaural / Isochronic Frequency slider
will be limited to that range. Otherwise, the slider operates across the entire range. You can also directly enter the
frequency by tapping on the "Binaural" button.

Select a frequency that is best for your situation. Then, simply sit with your eyes closed and your headphones on,
and let the program do the rest!

Frequency
Feeling Symptoms
Range
Delta .1hz - 4hz Sleep Makes you sleepy; good before bed with a timer
Theta 4z - 7hz Relaxation Relaxes you after a long day. Lower frequencies make you drowsy
Alpha 7hz - 13hz Creativity Good for writer's block or problem solving
This is where your brain normally operates. Higher frequencies make you
Beta 13hz - 30hz Focus
more anxious
Frequencies of zen masters transcending the physical plane or connecting
Gamma 30hz - 60hz Superpowers*
to the universal mind
*This statement has not been scienti cally proven; results may vary
Carrier Frequency
This is the frequency of the "root" tone.
Android: Simply type in the carrier frequency into the text box on the left.
iOS: As you slide the slider up, you'll notice that the pitch increases. Slide it down, and it decreases. Click on
"Carrier" to directly enter the frequency.

Scienti c studies have shown that the lower frequencies are more e ective for brainwave entrainment, so you
might want to stick to those. For brain wave entrainment, the exact frequency you choose is not as important, but
some schools of sound healing say that the carrier frequency has its own healing e ects. There are less scienti c
studies to explore this, and the knowledge is mostly esoteric, but if you set intentions when setting the frequencies,
it will de nitely help!

Here are some examples of common carrier frequencies:

126.22 Solar Plexus Sun advances the feeling of centering of the magic
210.42 Navel Synodic Moon supports erotic communication

Those are some common tones used. This website has a big list of carrier frequencies
(http://www.electroherbalism.com/Bioelectronics/FrequenciesandAnecdotes/BrainwaveFrequencyList.htm) that
you might also want to explore.

And, that's really all there is to it. Now, go create your own binaural beats!

Presets (android only)


The iOS version requires you to select the frequencies to play (use the tables above to learn more), but android
includes includes a series of buttons at the bottom of the screen, which are pre-programmed with speci c tonal
frequencies. You can click on one of the designated buttons and the tones will pre-populate and begin playing.
Here are the presets, for reference. You can use these frequencies in the iOS app by directly typing them in.
