60Hz Gamma Waves Neuroplasticity Generator - light+sound brain wave entrainment drone

Post by Neither »

Warning: not suitable for epileptics or light sensitive persons!


Four separate CEM3340 oscillators are tuned to 60 Hz so that they drone at 60 pulses per second. Each oscillator outputs square waves, saw waves and triangle waves, which are all mixed together to generate more complex waveforms. In addition, slight chaotic pulse-width modulation + some manual modulation is applied to keep things more interesting (affecting timbre). Chaotic modulation via Sloths is also applied for panning, for some channels. Slight spring reverbation + some tube saturation is applied to the side channel to generate more width. Then an ensemble of sine-wave oscillators (4ms EnsOsc) is applied, generating a 60Hz tone, for extra flavor. Finally, subtle EQ & limiting...

Youtube's description has more info about the flickering lights + links and descriptions about various studies, which this video is based on etc. Be sure to play this on 720p60 setting.

Can you post just the audio or are the audio and video both essential parts of this?

curious why 60hz = neuroplasticity

I tested with EEG that the plain audio wasn't enough to induce mid-high gamma waves properly in the brain. With the visuals, gamma waves were induced surprisingly fast and strong.

I'm currently experimenting on doing a more effective (but worse sounding) audio, with more clear/distinct pulses (only square waves). But been too busy with normal stuff...

Here is a recent (animal) study:

...and here is why I chose a red/white color combination:
