Brainwave Synchronizer

Develop and Evolve Your Consciousness with Ease .....

The Brainwave Synchronizer is a Light and Sound device used to control brainwave frequencies and patterns, to achieve specific objectives. These objectives typically include;

  • relaxation
  • sleep induction
  • improved ability to learn
  • improved memory
  • reaching altered states of consciousness normally only achievable through advanced meditation techniques
  • being less anxious and nervous
  • being able to handle high pressure situations more easily

The brainwave synchronizer works on the principle of entrainment, whereby the light and sound device creates an oscillating frequency which the brain starts to follow after a period of around 5-6 minutes. When the lights and sound from the synchronizer pulse at the speed of normal brainwaves when a session begins, they quickly synchronize. Your brainwaves will then follow as the light and sound stimulation shifts into the frequencies of another mind state. This is called the frequency following effect, or entrainment. The scientific term when lights are used for this is usually Photic Driving.

Each pulse of the stimulation being used must evoke enough of a response from the brain in order for entrainment to be effective. This response by the brain from sensory stimulation is called cortical evoked response. This can happen from any type of sensory stimulation, but the most effective means of doing this is through light and sound combined.

Sound has a very small effect on brainwaves when used alone, and shifting a mind state effectively requires more than stimulation from sound at a sustained frequency.

The brainwave synchronizer uses complex pulse patterns of light and sound that years of research show are best for the brainwave frequency following effect.

To get a better understanding on how the brainwave synchronizer works, lets have a look at brain and brainwave basics.

Brain Synchronization Basics

The brain consists of 2 hemispheres, namely the left and right hemisphere. Each side processes information in different ways, with the left focusing more on logic and analytics and the right focusing more on creativity and imagination. Depending on how we have adapted to life with things such as our career or lifestyle, we The Braintend to become dominant to using one side more than the other. This limits us in our ability to perform at our optimum, as it has been shown that the learning and thinking process is enhanced when both sides of the brain function in a balanced manner. By strengthening the less dominant hemisphere, you are able to achieve far more in your cognitive function, and thus your goals and aspirations.

The left side of the brain processes information in a linear manner. It processes from part to whole. It takes pieces, lines them up, and arranges them in a logical order; then it draws conclusions. The right brain however, processes from whole to parts, holistically. It starts with the answer. It sees the big picture first, not the details. If you are right-brained, you may have difficulty following a lecture unless you are given the big picture first.Those who have achieved hemispheric synchronization tend to be more flexible than either the left or the right-brain dominant folks; neurologically speaking, you could do most tasks through either a left-brain or a right-brain method! You are able to draw on the strengths of both the right and left hemispheres of your brain depending upon a given situation. This combination makes you a creative and flexible thinker.

Hemispheric synchronization has been shown to enhance:

  • Sleep: quality and quantity
  • Creativity
  • Will power
  • Sports performance: Anything involving the brain-body connection, such as golf, tennis, hockey, etc.
  • Business performance
  • Sexual performance
  • Health
  • Immunity
  • Mental processing
  • Mental flexibility
  • Memory
  • Motor skills (for brain-injured clients)
  • Energy
  • Focus
  • Meditation
  • Clarity
  • Mood balance
  • Communication in general

Hemispheric synchronization has been shown to reduce:

  • Depression
  • ADHD issues
  • Sleep disorders
  • Anger
  • Anxiety or fear issues
  • Worry
  • Stress
  • Stress related disorders (PTSD)
  • Fatigue
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Speech impediments
  • Overweight conditions
  • Chronic pain
  • Dementia
  • Alzheimer's symptoms
  • Addictive dependencies:
    • Alcohol
    • Smoking
    • Drugs
    • Sugar
    • Eating disorders
    • Other addictive behaviours

Electroencephalogram showing the electrical activity in the brainBrainwave Basics

Using electroencephalography, we are able to record the electrical activity in the brain which results from the firing of neurons in the brain. The diagram to the right shows a typical electroencephalogram graph taken from an EEG machine showing various frequencies and modulations, or brainwaves.

Brainwave BasicsIt has been shown that there will always be a predominant speed where most of these waves synchronize. The speed of a brainwave is called a frequency - this frequency is measured in Hertz (Hz). Scientists who first measured these waves found that they were connected to mind states. Brainwaves have been divided into four predominant speed ranges, or types. Brainwave types are connected to different mind states, or states of consciousness.
Each brainwave type contains smaller bands relating to specific functions of body and mind. Some complex mental states relate to specific frequencies that repeat in patterns. There are also mind/body processes connected to single frequencies.

Brainwave Types

Brainwave Name EEG Typical
Mind State
Beta Brainwave Beta EEG Graph Alert; Engaged in Work; Active Thinking; Concentrating
Alpha Brainwave Alpha EEG Graph Relaxed State; Closed Eyes; Daydreaming.
Theta Brainwave Theta EEG Graph Drowsiness; Deep Meditation; Between Awake/Asleep; Shamanic States; Bridge to Subconsciousness
Delta Brainwave Delta EEG Graph Deep Dreamless Sleep; Unconscious

The Brainwave SynchronizerA typical session on the brainwave synchronizer will start at beta, and will then work its way down as low as a Theta or even a Delta state, depending on the objective so desired (e.g., wanting to feel relaxed or creative). It will then finish off by taking you back to the Beta state. In as little as 15 minutes, you can be taken close to a sleep state, and then be fully alert at the end of that session but without the stress you may have been feeling.

The Brainwave Synchronizer

The Brainwave Synchronizer Product The Brainwave Synchronizer is the best value in light/sound mind machines available today due to its low price and rich set of features. It will provide many hours of rewarding use. Our new MultiColor LiteFrames are included for enhanced visuals. The LiteFrames feature over 200 color combinations.

The Brainwave Synchronizer is incredibly sturdy, conveniently small, ergonomic, and very easy to use. All you need to do is power it on, choose one of the 49 preset sessions, put on the headphones and lite frames, and close your eyes. The session will guide you into other mental states by stimulating your senses with special patterns of sound and synchronized lights. You will be instantly transported to a profound state of relaxation.

Brain SynchronizationIn your minds eye you'll see patterns of shapes dancing to thick washes and pulses of sound. These special combinations of flickering light and sound are having an effect on your brainwaves. Geometric patterns shape-shift and color cycle while guiding you through the session toward the mind state you desire.

Your stress from the day is released as your brainwaves begin following the frequencies you are perceiving. The frequencies used in the Brainwave Synchronizer sessions mimic those found in brainwaves during activities like meditation, dreaming, and deeply focused concentration. You experience and feel these states as your brainwaves synchronize to the lights and sound. Your brain begins producing more theta and alpha waves, and less beta waves - what we have during busy and scattered thinking throughout the day.

The Brainwave Synchronizer was designed for people who are looking for a powerful light and sound mind machine. Even with the low price, it is still packed with features. The Brainwave Synchronizer includes Audiostrobe technology for synchronizing special music CDs with the lights.

What is AudioStrobe?

AudioStrobe technology allows you to use specially encoded music CDs with the Brainwave Synchronizer. AudioStrobe music CDs are capable of controlling the lights when played through The Brainwave Synchronizer using the included patch cable.

The AudioStrobe technique uses a control signal embedded into the music on the CD. These control signals control different aspects of the Brainwave Synchronizer while the music is playing. The artists attempt to create a visual representation of their music so that you can see what the music sounds like while it is playing.

Because the signals are mastered at the same time that the CD is, a very precise synchronization of the audio and visual stimulation can be achieved since the signals are mastered together with the CD. AudioStrobe was developed by Mr. Andrzej Slawinski of AudioStrobe GMBH, Germany.

Binaural Beats

How Binaural Beats WorksA binaural beat is generated from two tones. Each tone is of a slightly different pitch. One tone is presented to the left ear, and the other to the right. The two tones combine into a single tone sensed by your brain. This single tone pulse is the stimulation when entraining with binaural beats.

Binaural beats are probably the most well-known stimulus used for entrainment. They have been shown to work, but some of the other audio entrainment techniques are more effective. The Brainwave Synchronizer produces binaural beats, dual binaural beats and other audio entrainment methods.

The Brainwave Session Editor

You can use the Brainwave Synchronizer as is with the 71 programs that it comes supplied with, but if you are really enthusiastic in exploring the complete scope of the brain synchronizer, you can use the session editor. You can even download sessions created by others and add them to your selection of programs, or upload your own to share with others - there is plenty of space on the Brainwave Synchronizer allocated just for this purpose!

Is the Brainwave Synchronizer Safe for Everyone to Use?

No. If you plan to order the Brainwave Synchronizer, please make sure you are not sensitive to strobe effects (e.g., 5% of people with epilepsy can have their seizures triggered by flashing lights). Make sure that you do not allow others who have this form of epilepsy to use your machine.

Brainwave Synchronizers have been used for years - thousands of people have yielded their benefits. However, if you are sensitive to light or have PhotoSensitive Epilepsy, then the Brainwave Synchronizer is not for you. It is possible for a Brainwave Synchronizer to cause seizures in these individuals in the same way that oscillating lights or 'strobe' lights can. If you, or anyone else who shares your machine are using a pacemaker, suffering cardiac arrhythmia or other head disorders, on tranquilizers or psychotropic medicines, have epilepsy or visual photosensitivity, the Brainwave Synchronizer should be avoided.

The Brainwave Synchronizer features;

  • A Hand Held Computer Control Console with 71 Pre-programmed Mind Altering Sessions
  • MultiColor LiteFrames™ with 6 LEDs per eye
  • Compact Earbud Headphones
  • USB micro cable (use to transfer more sessions into console)
  • Quickstart manual and session guides
  • audio patch cable

The Brainwave Synchronizer is powered by 2 AA batteries (not supplied).

The 71 Preset Sessions in the Control Console

A decade of experience developing and refining the use of light and sound technology has gone into the Brainwave Synchronizer. The proprietary preset sessions are the result of years of extensive research, in both universities and in the private sector. The preset sessions include programs created by Dr. Hans Bittner, based upon his research at the University of Essen. The sessions stored in the Brain Synchronizer are classified into Sirius, Procyon and Gamma. Sirius and Procyon were 2 former Brain Synchronizers which were very popular, and the Brain Synchronizer has superceded both of these models with more advanced delivery systems in the audio and visual areas.

Question Does using binaural beats produce a wholebrain functional state? I am particularly interested in creating whole brain learning.

Yes the brain synchronizer has several programs that are designed a wholebrain state learning. You can actually plug another device into an Aux port where you can play the material you wish to learn while the binaural beats put you into a fast learning state. The programs that do this are described in the manual/downloads available above.

Question How long do the batteries last?

We recommend that you use alkaline batteries with the Brainwave Synchronizer for best results; under normal use you can expect approximately 50 hours continuous operation. You can also use rechargeable Ni-Cad "AA" batteries, which should last roughly 10-20 hours between recharges.

Question What are the system requirements for the Brainwave Synchronizer Editor program?

Windows 98 or later is recommended (we've heard that this may be run under Windows 95, but have not certified it for so doing ourselves). You need less than 3 MB disc space; practically any system that runs W98+ should work well.

Question How important is sound as a component of the light/sound experience?

It is especially important as a means for blocking external distractions, and pulsed audio waveforms can help reduce distracting thoughts via patterned stimuli. Binaural beat frequencies can induce brainwave activity at the beat frequencies in some cases, which further assists in accessing certain states of awareness. Generally speaking, the audio component is much less important than the visual, since a large part of our brain (about 40%) is involved with vision. If you are using AudioStrobe or other forms of audio input, such as various forms of spoken word (affirmations, NLP, etc.) the importance of the audio increases in the overall experience.

Question How does AudioStrobe work?

The AudioStrobe technique stores an inaudible control signal on digital media such as compact discs; these signals directly control the pulsing of the lights. Because the signals are mastered at the same time as the CD, very precise synchronization of the audio and visual stimulation can be achieved. AudioStrobe was developed by Mr. Andrzej Slawinski of AudioStrobe GMBH, Germany.

Question I can't download sessions from my computer into Brainwave Synchronizer.

Check the following: 1. Have you selected the proper serial port 2. Is the serial cable plugged snugly into the computer and Brainwave Synchronizer? 3. Are you using the proper cable? (it should be black; the ThoughtStream cable looks identical but is beige) 4. Is Brainwave Synchronizer in DL mode? (if not, press the middle button until it is, and repeat the download process. Remember that the Brainwave Synchronizer digital display will show rapidly changing numbers if it is receiving data.

Question How do I update the Brainwave Synchronizer firmware (operating system)?

Follow these steps: a. Launch Brainwave Synchronizer Editor and click the Update Code button on the top right hand side of the program window. b. Notice that there are three checked boxes on the lower right, under send data to Brainwave Synchronizer in the above mentioned screen; in the future you can selectively upload new session data, code or user preferences separately. Leave them all checked for the moment. c. Point your cursor to the Brainwave SynchronizerCODE30.pts (or whichever version is the latest.) file and left-click to highlight the filename. d. Be sure your Brainwave Synchronizer is connected to your PC, and if necessary press the MODE (middle) button until the display reads DL (for download). Verify that the PC cable is plugged into the AUX input on the lower right side of Brainwave Synchronizer. e. Now left-click the Upload Code button. You will see a display on screen indicating that the firmware update is downloading. The Brainwave Synchronizer display should also show rapidly changing numbers during the download; if this is not the case then either you have not selected the correct serial port, or the serial cable is not properly connected, or you are not in DL mode.

Question Why are the LEDs in the GanzFrames red and green?

We chose these colors because they include a large range of evocable feeling-states, ranging from red (=energizing) to green (=relaxing) with a range of possibilities in between, especially amber, which is most efficient at evoking the peak performance state. Also, our testers reported that these colors produced the most vivid imagery.

Question In what way is multicolored light superior to a single color?

Single-color stimulation does not take into account the differential effects of colored light stimulation on mood and EEG. Brainwave Synchronizer is the first system to provide real-time control over the brightness of both colors simultaneously, allow smooth shifts between the 250+ possible color combinations (16 shades each of red and green). So a typical ramp from 16 Hz to 8 Hz might start all red, shifting to amber at 12 Hz and all green at 8 Hz. Or, you can try your own combinations to explore more unique effects.

Question Why is the use of two frequencies simultaneously of value?

It is possible to elicit more complex states of consciousness by using more than one frequency simultaneously. In fact, most states of consciousness are not exemplified by a single frequency band. The Brainwave Synchronizer is the only machine available today which at least partially remedies that situation.

Question What are the advantages of using biofeedback to control the Brainwave Synchronizer?

There are several reasons. First, the light frequency, brightness, color, etc. may be used to provide you with direct feedback regarding changes in your physiology associated with the use of light/sound stimulation--whether it be increased or decreased arousal, etc. Secondly, sessions may be created which alternate between light/sound stimulation and biofeedback; this was the approach taken with the Biolight study which led to significant improvement in college grade point average in those who used this system. Thirdly, the light/sound parameters may be "tuned" in real time to craft highly specific states of consciousness.

Question Why are there multiple sensors listed in the Brainwave Synchronizer biofeedback settings?

We were originally preparing the system for the introduction of a low-cost, multichannel biofeedback system which would have more sensors. For various reasons this did not materialize. Only the EDR 1 setting is active with the ThoughtStream + Brainwave Synchronizer combination, although you can assign and scale this data to control any or all of six Brainwave Synchronizer parameters.

Question Can I use Brainwave Synchronizer Editor with a Macintosh computer?

Although we have not tested Brainwave Synchronizer Editor with Windows emulation programs, we've heard that it does work with them. One customer recently wrote, "I found that running MS Virtual PC with Windows 98 on a Mac utilizing a Keyspan PDA USB adapter works just fine as far as I can see. The keyspan adapter can be used for both a Mac or a PC but should be configured for a Mac then within the VPC preferences just map one of the Comm ports to it. Its a little more problematical to configure it in the VPC as it sets up as comm port 3 which would not work smoothly."

Question How do I connect the Brainwave Synchronizer to ThoughtStream?

Using the stereo audio patch cord which came with your Brainwave Synchronizer, connect the PC jack on top of the ThoughtStream to the AUX jack on your Brainwave Synchronizer. If you have selected a ThoughtStream-enabled program, the Brainwave Synchronizer will automatically sense the ThoughtStream and run it with biofeedback control.

The Brain Synchronizer has so many applications on daily life. I am just beginning to discover how it's many functions can be used. It is safe, effective, and fun. For travel it will help reset the circadian.

At 11 May 2015 I ordered a proteus advanced light sound stimulation system. Just letting you know I am very happy with the system. I hadn’t used it for a while and thought it wasn’t working, but I put the headphone plug in the plug for the glasses.
