Frequency (Hz) Filter: Questions & AnswersIf alpha, aheta, & delta waves are only 0-13hz, why are these frequencies so much higher?The reason binaural audio works is because your brain recognizes the difference between two separate tones and entrains accordingly. For instance, if a tone of 523 Hz was played in your right ear and 528 Hz in your left then your brain would synchronize itself to the difference between the two (in this case it would be 5 Hz, a theta brainwave, which would be quite relaxing). Of course, you can also modulate a 528 hz carrier to "pulse" (i.e. isochronic tone / monaural beat) every 5hz to get the same effect. This much higher (audible) frequency is known as the "carrier frequency" and is integral for successful brainwave entrainment.
Are some frequencies better than others?Have you seen one of the recent viral videos demonstrating the power of "cymatics?" In case you haven't, a sand covered metal plate and soundboard are the lone ingredients in this simple yet impressive experiment. And as the experimenter adjusts the frequency (measured in Hz) to certain levels on the audio spectrum, in response, the vibrating sand would "magically arrange" itself into near perfect geometric patterns. It was the incredible uniqueness and beauty of the "snowflake-like" or "crystalline" patterns (at their respective Hz frequency) that made the experiment so compelling. While the experiment possibly raises more questions than it answers, it does provide some powerfully illustrative evidence to the idea that all sound is (NOT!) created equal. And that, just perhaps, certain sounds vibrated at certain frequencies can indeed impact consciousness in certain ways.
Why did you choose these carrier frequencies?For the purpose of building a sound based meditation program, EquiSync contains frequencies that are most popular among the meditation community, frequencies built upon the most solid mathematical foundation, frequencies that are most resonant / congruent with their respective soundscape, and frequencies with the most compelling scientific and anecdotal evidence.
Which frequencies are included? What can they do? While our program does include some of the most popular frequencies, including the Solfeggio tones (with the powerful 528 Hz tone a key ingredient), and much of the 432 Hz / 444 Hz scale, we make NO claims as to what these sounds can or can't do (like many on the web like to do). This field of research, that is, how certain sound(s) vibrated at certain frequencies can impact human consciousness in certain (perhaps very positive) ways - is largely new, and therefore, largely unexplored by science.Is there an added benefit of switching up the carrier frequency from time to time?Having a variety of carrier frequencies (and entrainment techniques) to choose from has an added benefit, immunity to "habituation." If you find that your meditation routine has gotten stagnant, simply switch to another carrier profile (Hz). When it comes to breaking through meditative plateaus, variety is often the key.How many frequencies are there? How many options per soundscape?The initial Deepereum release includes a spectrum of 29 carrier frequency profiles, with 3-5 options per soundscape. Generally speaking, if you don't have a preference / haven't researched the potential benefits of a particular frequency, then we recommend simply choosing a carrier profile that sounds the most pleasing to you.Does EquiSync Classic also contain these frequencies?Yes! EquiSync Classic has contained these powerful frequencies since the beginning. In fact, its likely a key reason for the program's massive popularity! With that said, if the ability to pick and choose the carrier frequency is important to you, then we recommend EquiSync Deepereum. If you are happy knowing that, in a general sense, EquiSync Classic does indeed contain the most popular frequencies (including the Solfeggio Tones, 432hz, 444hz, & 528hz), then it may well be the best program for you. Most people start with EquiSync Classic and move to EquiSync Deepereum once they have more experience / understand the powerful benefit(s) of controlling the many track variables (including track length, carrier frequency, brainwave depth, entrainment type, etc).
