Everybody has thought at least once about composing a song or a score to something. But studying musical theory, memorizing the solfeggio and learning how to put everything on paper is too big of a time commitment for any professional daydreamer. In this day and age, when Hans Zimmer can score an entire movie without ever setting foot in a... Read full review
Fine brain tuning
You've probably heard of binaural beats. In case you haven't, here's a quick rundown: Stereo sound is supposed to deliver a different track for each ear (channel), but unless it's a directional sound or musical effect, the tracks will most likely be identical.
