Binaural Beat Software
For those who are interested in a summary binaural beats, please click that link in order to review the history, origins, and development of the technology.
Meanwhile, many of you visiting this page may be interested in determining the difference between 'Binaural Beat Programs' and 'Binaural Beat Software'. The former is typically referred to as an audio program, which is downloaded for immediate listening on an MP3 player, and the latter is typically regarded as the core software that is utilized in order to design new and unique binaural beats audio sessions.
The Brainwave Generator was a classic binaural beat and isochronic beat generator, which was available on Windows during the early and mid 2000s. This program allowed individuals to design unique protocols, which incorporated their own select soundscape and binaural beat frequencies, which could be exported into .WAV and other formats.
The 'Brainwave Generator'
The Brainwave Generator was also utilized for incorporating multiple layers of binaural beats into the program for custom users. However, some users believed that this was too complex, so the developers also included 'Presets' for those who simply wanted to launch the program and begin listening to previously developed binaural beat protocols immediately.
The Transparent Corporation also provides users with a binaural beat brainwave entrainment software suite, which includes Neuroprogrammer 2 (Now out dated and not functional on most Windows 10 machines) as well as the Neuroprogrammer 3. The Neuroprogrammer 3 is very similar to the Brainwave Generator, but there are several unique variations. (PS: We have no financial stake in either program).
1. Neuroprogrammer 3 provides users with a more robust and high quality User Experience - The Windows and Buttons are more aesthetically pleasing.
2. Neuroprogrammer 3 is somewhat simpler and more straightforward - One could not mistakenly produce a protocol that does not include a basic binaural beat, because the software is not as complex in it's Settings as with the Brainwave Generator.
3. Neuroprogrammer 3's audio soundscapes and binaural beats are much softer and aesthetically pleasing, so this is probably a more effective system for commercial production.
In conclusion, the Brainwave Generator is probably best for personal experimentation, and the Neuroprogrammer 3 may be best for commercial applications.
That being said, there are many other forms of software that you may want to utilize with binaural beats. For example, stimulation-driven neurofeedback software is designed to interface with binaural beat and visual stimulation systems in order to simultaneously administer brainwave entrainment and neurofeedback protocols. These software applications may deliberately provide binaural beat stimulation when brainwaves are highly deviant from neurofeedback targets. Through guiding the user back toward the optimal 'Zone' of brainwave activity, the binuaral beat software will reduce it's stimulus output and allow the user to resume independent self-regulation strategies through the neurofeedback systems.
This is another example of binaural beat software and it's potential application through stimulation driven neurofeedback.
