My first smartphone apps were these basic tools to allow users to create their own binaural beats. The app was called Binaural, and this past December, I made both the iOS and Android versions free for anyone to download and use. Now, I've decided to take this a step further and make the core of these apps open source! This means that you can go to my github page and download fully working sample apps that generate binaural beats and isochronic pulses. Then, you can use these algorithms in your own apps. If you find any of this useful, I'd appreciate you give me shout, and perhaps I'll feature your app on my Guided Meditation Treks blog!
Here's the source code for iOS.
Here's the source code for Android.
Or you can just download the app and not worry about how it works!
I've been doing software development for a long time, and recently, I've been working on some newer stuff with my startup, Synervoz. We are creating cutting-edge technology to bridge gaps in the realms of music and talking with our app TurnMeUp. For example, how many times have you been listening to music with earbuds or headphones when someone in the room is trying to talk to you? Our app lets you hear them without taking off your headphones. Not only that, but our technology lets people not in the room to talk to you in real-time without making you answer a phone call or interrupt that important Jamiroquai song you are listening to in the moment. Here is an outline of some of the technologies I've worked with on this project (and otherwise), which I find to be some of the most relevant technologies in the 2010's, yet they didn't even exist ten years ago!
The 2013 international conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression has published their proceedings, and my paper is now available online in all its glory! Check it out if you want to know the full history of the Silent Disco, as well as some in-depth technical stuff related to binaural beats, and a systems analysis for building a smart-phone-based silent disco system!
