*** Progressive Brainwave Entrainment ***
Altered State's Progressive Brainwave Entrainment algorithms use layers of frequencies and carrier signals assembled in precise sequences to create profoundly unique experiences. Each program gently brings your brainwave frequencies to your desired state using a more natural frequency progression.
*** Advanced Features ***
- Multiple Brainwave programs each specially designed for a different situation and desired mental state.
- Multiple ambient background sounds to choose from.
- Adjustable Brainwave Intensity - The intensity of the brainwaves can be adjusted independently of the ambient background sound. This allows the user to set the brainwave signal volume to their comfort level. The application will also save your preference for future use.
- Independently adjustable ambient sound volume.
- Visual timer countdown indicator.
- Automatic storage of preferred brainwave program and ambient background.
- Ability to set your own custom program duration.

What's New in Version 6.0
* Supports iOS 5.0 and higher * Thanks for making Brain Wave Altered States a Top Seller for 4 years! This update include a ton of new features, including the ability to use your iTunes Music as the background and Alarm Audio, support for running another audio app simultaneously, such as a web or ebook reader, and UI updates for iOS 7.
- Updated UI for iOS 7
- Added the ability to create a playlist of your own iTunes library music and use it as the background. The behavior of the app when iTunes music is used instead of the included ambience is slightly different so please review the help. Notably, unlike our included ambience which can be played at a volume below the device volume, iTunes music can only be played at the device volume. So when playing iTunes music the Ambience volume slider disappears.
- Added the ability to toggle whether the Stop and Pause buttons should fade down the audio or stop it immediately.
- Enabled the use of your own iTunes Music for the Alarm Audio.
- Added a new Save Preferences feature that allows you to Save, Load, or Restore to Default, the preferences for each program. This saves duration, alarm, background preferences, and even a separate playlist for each program.
- Added a toggle to the Custom Duration Menu that allows you to set the custom duration by duration or time.
- Improved Fade-Down/Fade-Up between stages.
- Users with Hypnosis, Meditation and Affirmation audio in their iTunes library have asked in the past that they be able to combine that audio with our Binaural Tones and Ambience, so we've enabled that as well. Be sure to review the help to understand all the ways the app can be combined with other audio.
The good the bad and the half-assed
Great concept just poorly executed. The brain wave function is cool. I don't know if it's actually doing anything. I don't feel any different from one Theta wave to the next. However, the program definitely does help me get to sleep. Then again so does any white noise.
Admittedly, I haven't really tried new age music within the program because I prefer nature sound for relaxation. Quality of the natural sounds, I.e. rain, wind, ocean, etc. is poor at best. I'm listening on both beats headphones and earbuds. Neither is any better than the other. It doesn't sound realistic and the loops tend to be short. The start/end of each loop is so abrupt I find them more distracting than relaxing. The thunderstorm loop is so short and monotonous I find myself anticipating each lightning strike and thunder roll because I have it memorized. I tend to use the brain wave function of this program and the natural sounds of a different program to get the right blend for my relaxation purposes.
I purchased this app a little over a year ago and I though I'd add my 2 cents since no decent reviews have been posted. This app is a great aid to meditation but let me stress it is NOT the "practice". I'd advise anyone interested in this app to research brainwaves and have a good understanding of meditation and it's purpose in their own life. This app can be an incredibly powerful tool in achieving altered states of consciousness and relaxation but again I stress that it is only a "tool". This app is just a tool in meditation and meditation is just one part of the entire lifestyle of mindful practice. Diet, exercise, energy work, karma, relationships, emotional maturity, are all parts of growing along the never ending path. This is my perspective of my experience. Great app!
Essential to my Wellbeing
I rely on certain of the binaural entrainments in this particular app (I have all of Banzai's brainwave entrainment apps, & love all of them) to help me to meditate, release anger and calm myself from overly agitated states. This seems a more effective use of this & all of these applications than trying to energize myself through them, for which I rely more on isochronic tones (I think it'd be amazing if you created some iso applications). This may be a result of my natural state being more calm than energetic, which therefore supports the more subtle entrainment process. I am sure the reverse situation exists for more energetic people.
