edenBeats – Binaural Beat Generator

There are many forum members at XDA who have been inspired to delve into the world of programming for Android.

XDA forum member cicada, is one such member and has developed his first Android app – a realtime, multi-track binaural beat generator, edenBeats.

Binaural beats are a phenomenon created when two slightly different frequency tones are supplied to each ear. Your brain simulates the interference patterns you would normally hear if the tones mixed in the air ( think tuning a musical instrument, this is a monaural beat ), creating a virtual interference pattern.

Binaural beats are said to stimulate hemisphere-synchronization as the two lobes of your brain work together to mix the sounds, entraining your brain waves to match the interference (beat) pattern frequency. The effects are said to be drug-like, I tend to find a pleasing, low-frequency beat to be a great meditation aid. Try mixing several tracks with different frequencies, or many tracks at the same frequency to accentuate the beat pattern.

The dev is looking for some constructive feedback on how to improve the app or app flow.

Note that edenBeats should be used with stereo headphones and is available to download free in the Market.

For more information, head on over to the application thread.
