BrainWave Generator 2.0 press release

PRESS RELEASE                                        January 11th 1999

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

BrainWave Generator 2.0 software was released
=============================================

Espoo, FINLAND -- January 11th 1999 -- Noromaa Solutions released
today a Windows 95/98/NT software for brain stimulation with binaural
beats. Effects of brain stimulation range from relaxation and
meditation to self-hypnosis and alleviation of headaches and migraines.

The theory behind BrainWave Generator
-------------------------------------

Human brain generates vibrations in the range of 1Hz to about 50Hz.
These vibrations can be measured from the surface of the scalp by
EEG (electroencephalography) technology. The dominant frequency of the
brain can tell much of a person's state of mind: day-time frequencies
are typically over 15 to 30Hz while frequencies of 1 to 4Hz occur
during the deepest stages of sleep. Frequencies around 8 to 12Hz are
excellent for relaxation and meditation purposes.

BrainWave Generator works by entraining brain into a desired state by
generating sounds with binaural beats. Binaural beats are formed by
supplying a tone (for example, 500Hz) into the left ear and another
tone (for example, 510Hz) into the right ear. The difference, 10Hz is
perceived by the brain, and has the tendency of changing the brain's
dominant frequency towards itself. This is called brainwave
entrainment.

BrainWave Generator generates such tone pairs that can be used to
entrain the brain into desired states.

Effects of brainwave entrainment
--------------------------------

Through the selection of certain entrainment frequencies, the
following effects can be achieved:
- Relaxation and meditation
- Enhancing learning capabilities, increasing memory and increasing IQ
- Inducing sleep
- Focusing attention and enhancing awareness
- Alleviating headaches and migraines
- Preparing for stressful situations
- Self-hypnosis and/or subliminal programming
 
Features of BrainWave Generator
-------------------------------
 
Features of BrainWave Generator include:
- Possibility to create and save your own brainwave entrainment
  presets with a very easy-to-use user interface. A context-sensitive
  online help is also included.
- More than 20 built-in presets ranging from sleep-induction to
  headache alleviation.
- Brainwave entrainment presets can be exported as files and imported
  back, so that exchanging presets between different users becomes
  very easy. (Importing is only available in the registered version.)
- Selection of 18 different background sounds ranging from gently
  flowing river to explosions. External .wav files can also be used
  as backgrounds, as well as noise varying from "harsh" white noise to
  "gentle" brown noise.
- Possibility to add up to 4 simultaneous voices to the output. For
  each voice, parameters such as binaural beat frequency, volume,
  audible pitch, modulation and background can be programmed
  separately.
- Waveform of the output can be selected from sine wave, sine^2 wave,
  triangular wave, rectangular wave and smoothed rectangular waves.
