How We Designed Our Mp3's
Most companies in the brainwave entrainment industry create mp3's or cd's using binaural beat technology or monaural beats or isochronic tones or a combination etc. And what they do is choose a soothing music track or nature sounds (because the actual binaural beats or monaural beats etc., are dull to listen to by themselves) and embed the music or nature sounds with the actual entrainment at what ever frequency they choose (whether 8 hz, 2 hz etc.).
And it just so happens that the brainwave states between 0.1 hz - 12 hz are associated with very interesting states of consciousness which is why so many brainwave entrainment companies choose to embed their mp3's or cd's with frequencies in this range.
For example, the frequency of 4.5 hz has been known to produce a "Shaman" state of consciousness in some users. This is so because when someone is normally in a Shaman state of consciousness the dominant brainwave frequency (according to EEG readings) is around the 4.5 hz range. So brainwave entrainment companies will create a mp3 or cd with a 4.5 hz binaural tone frequency (or with monaural beats or harmonic box x etc.) and perhaps call the cd or mp3 "Shaman Consciousness" or Mystical Consciousness" ....and so on until some companies produce 50 + brainwave mp3's or cd's that are from 15 minutes - an hour in length, and selling between $10 - $25 each.
What we have done here at Binaural-Beats.org is selected the most popularly used frequencies (and also added epsilon frequencies which rarely anyone has done) and created a very, very, very affordable series of mp3's (40 levels, 40 mp3's) consisting of ambient music embedded with harmonic box x (binaural beats and monaural beats). These mp3's can be purchased in sections, rather than as singles, at 10 mp3's per section (such as 10 Alpha mp3's, 10 Theta mp3's and so on). Or, yo can save $32 and purchase all 4 series' here: Ultimate Brainwave Entrainment Mp3 Program.
According to most sources it takes the brain about 6 minutes - 8 minutes to become entrained by binaural beats or other forms of entrainment. When brainwave companies create their products they often start out the frequencies at a upper alpha level and then ramp it to the desired frequency level the particular mp3 or cd is created to produce in the listener. This way the mind is gradually led down to the alpha or theta etc., state. And the mp3 or cd can last anywhere between 15 minutes to an hour.
What we have done with our products is we have kept each mp3 in the series at 30 minutes, and added 2 frequencies to each mp3 with the exception of the Epsilon Series which consists of 1 frequency per mp3 (it is better to listen to the very low frequencies for a 1/2 hour or longer). In the Epsilon Series the entrainment stays on each frequency for 30 minutes. In the remaining mp3's the entrainment stays on each frequency for 15 minutes (no ramping, no up and down - just a solid entrainment for 15 minutes per frequency) thus making a 30 minute mp3. Since we are selling them in sections (Alpha Series, Theta Series, Delta Series, Epsilon Series) you can combine the tracks in your mp3 player to get the desired effects. For example, you may want to start of with Alpha level 2 (10.5 hz - 10 hz) combined with Alpha Level 3 (9.6 hz - 9.41 hz) and then be relaxed enough to try Theta Level 1 and so on. But it will vary from person to person. Some might benefit better (rather than jumping around) by staying on the same level for a week or month before moving to the next.
In case you are wondering why we have selected frequencies such as 10.5 hz, 9.6 hz, 9.41 hz etc. instead of simply creating 12 mp3's that go from 12 hz - 1 hz, see the details about each frequency on each product with info about the frequencies between 0.1 hz - 12 hz that we use.
As for the ambient music, we have carefully selected ambient music tracks (a different ambient music track per mp3) that will not interfere with the entrainment in each mp3, and that won't confuse the mind from level to level. The ambient music might be a little higher in upper alpha sessions but by the time it gets to Epsilon level 10 or the lower delta levels the music is deeper bass. Nonetheless the music is not the main thing. The entrainment behind the music is what is important. The music is there so the harmonic box x (binaural beats and monaural beats) entrainment does not become boring listening to by itself.
Since the Ultimate Brainwave Entrainment Mp3 Program contains the 40 aforementioned mp3's, as well as 13 additional mp3's in the bonus, and 2 extra mp3's in the Epsilon series, you would think it would cost between $500 - $1000 if we were charging between $10 - $20 per mp3. But that is not the case. OUR PRICES ARE THE LOWEST IN THE BRAINWAVE ENTRAINMENT INDUSTRY.
Our low prices do not indicate that our mp3's are cheap or poor quality. By no means. We have used special brainwave entrainment tools upwards of $700 just to produce the frequencies, and to create mp3's where the entrainment is not affected during the compression (meaning our mp3's are just as powerful as brainwave entrainment cd's). The prices are simply lower because we want people to be able to afford these products.
