Raindrop v0.9.4

webfork on 19 Feb 2019

Raindrop produces natural ambient sounds along with some special stimulating sounds for deep relaxation, sleep induction and perceived noise suppression. It is bundled with a series of highly realistic sound sets (tropical rain, birds etc.), meditation loops (mantra chants, instrumental vibrations etc.) and a binaural beats generator.

Binaural beats are perceptive illusions that happen when your ears receive two slightly different sine waves and your brain erroneously "reconstructs" the signal as a "beat" (hence the name). Depending on its frequency (which is given by the difference of the two sine waves) the binaural beat can effectively change the alertness state of your brain, thus inducing fast reactions (high frequencies), mild relaxation (medium frequencies) or deep sleep (low frequencies).

Awesome proggy. I'm using ModPlug Tracker to make custom sounds for it.

This is actually a terrific program and, no, ASAICT contains no malware. It's similar to Atmosphere Lite, which is also free, contains binaural beats, and ambient sounds. (Google it to find the URL, I'm not your mommy). Personally, even though AL is more commercialized, I like this better. There's also SoundBorb which is (even less) professionally programmed than this.

Brilliant little program! Works perfectly. Now I can play a combination of "Air Conditioner" and "Jungle Storm" on the surround system in my bedroom and remember happier times in my life when I lived in the tropics.

Many thanx to the author (and to Portablefreeware too, obviously, for giving me so much great software that actually does work, at all times)!!!

This site deals with the binaural beats. It gives the relaxation to the mind through the mind. Binaural beats are perceptive illusions that happen when your ears receive two slightly different sine waves and your brain erroneously "reconstructs" the signal as a "beat".

Looks like there is some server logic to disallow direct linking to the file, so I am changing the download link to the app's home page. You will have to search for "Raindrop" and click on the "binaries" link to download.
