    1. Binaural Beats, Monaural Beats, and Ischronic Tones

      by , 04-10-2011 at 05:20 AM
      I decided I would post my Binaural Beats in a Dream Journal entry that way I can edit past the 24hour limit that threads have. This way I can add more without having them strewn across multiple posts. You can find the original thread with the original tracks here.

      It's generally accepted, and I agree, that Isochronics work better than Monaural work better than Binaural. However many find that Binaurals or Monaurals are easier to listen to than Isochronics. I have included all three so you can try them out and figure out what best suits you!


      Binaural Beats
      I decided to do things a little different than the original tracks I posted. I have split the clips into an intro clip and then 10minute clips designed to be looped. This way you can loop a particular frequency as long as you want. Whereas the others had 10minute intros that would need to be skipped if looping longer than the track length. I strongly recommend using the Intro clip, you can try without, but it is much easier to entrain your brain slowly rather than trying to jump right into it. You might not get the effects if you don't allow your brain to adjust slowly.

      Intro :: BinauralIntro.mp3
      15minutes total length. This track starts at 15hz and slowly descends to your desired frequency. There will be a beep at 10hz(a little after 6:00) and a beep at 5hz(around 12:30) and then it will finish at 3hz. If you wish to listen to the alpha track than you should stop at the first beep, theta the second beep, or delta listen to the whole track.

      Alpha :: AlphaLoop.mp3
      Oscillates between 11 and 9Hz. Great for meditation or relaxing during the middle of the day when you don't want to get too drowsy. My second favorite.

      Theta :: ThetaLoop.mp3
      Oscillates between 6 and 4hz. Great for deeper meditation, relaxing during the evening, or listening to before a WILD attempt. Most people prefer Theta, but for some reason it's my least favorite.

      Delta :: DeltaLoop.mp3
      Oscillates between 4 and 2hz. Great for extremely deep meditation, and great for putting you to sleep quickly. My favorite Binaural Beat. I listen to this every night before going to sleep. I normally get weird hypnagogic imagery during meditation. And if I'm listening to it to fall asleep I'll sometimes pass out before I get a chance to take my earbuds out.

      ThetaRain :: ThetaRain.mp3
      A 7hz beat with the sounds of rain and thunder. This track is really good for relaxing, either for meditation or for sleep.

      alphathetabeach :: alphathetabeach.mp3
      This is something new I'm trying out. There is a 9hz and a 6hz beat stacked on top of each other with sounds of the beach in the background. I really like this track, I feel it has more of an effect on me than any of the others. I'm definitely going to experiment more with stacking different frequencies.

      Monaural Beats
      Not quite as effective as Isochronics, but the are a little more pleasing to listen to. Delta is not included because the brain has difficulty entraining to Delta Monaurals.

      Intro :: MonoIntro.mp3
      10minutes in total length. This starts at 15hz and slowly descends to your desired frequency. There is a beep at 10hz(5:00) and it will finish at 5hz. If you wish to meditate to alpha stop at the first beep, or theta listen to the whole track. Same with the Binaurals, if you skip this track you might not get the full effects.

      Alpha :: MonoAlphaLoop.mp3
      Oscillates between 11 and 9hz for 10minutes.

      Theta :: MonoThetaLoop.mp3
      Oscillates between 6 and 4hz for 10minutes.

      Isochronic Tones
      By far my favorite method for Alpha/Theta entrainment. However like Monaural, Delta entrainment doesn't really work with Isochronics. Not to mention a slow beep is annoying to listen to.

      Intro :: IsoIntro.mp3
      10minutes in total length. This starts at 15hz and slowly descends to your desired frequency. There is a beep at 10hz(5:00) and it will finish at 5hz.

      Alpha :: IsoAlphaLoop.mp3
      Oscillates between 11 and 9hz for 10minutes.

      Theta :: IsoThetaLoop.mp3
      Oscillates between 6 and 4hz for 10minutes. This is my favorite way to listen to Theta beats; very relaxing.

      Gamma :: IsoGamma.mp3
      This starts at 13hz and slowly climbs to 40hz over 20minutes. This was an experiment to see if I liked Gamma entrainment and it turns out I do! I will probably make a Gamma intro and looping track in the near future.

      I'm looking for some good tracks that could be laid over these these binaural files to make them a little more pleasing to listen to. I've thought about using some classical music, but would prefer something a little more relaxing and meditative. If you know of any good tracks for this please share them with me!

      If you have any comments or suggestions please share them! I'm still working on some more, they will be posted as I finish them.
