Richard Wolton has announced the release of the Hypnos Vocoder plug-in for DirectX audio hosts. This device produces sound 'effects' which utilize brainwave entrainment functions, used for hypnotherapy, meditation, sleep induction, and other things, integrated at the core level of a vocoder effects processor.
Unlike other available methods, there is no simple addition of beat frequency sine waves to the audio. Instead, each component of a complex vocoder signal is split into left-right pairs that are individually encoded to produce an entrainment frequency. According to the company, this results in a vocoder effect processor that naturally produces the brainwave entrainment effect within the actual harmonics of the music itself.
Several other, more affordable DirectX and VST vocoder plug-ins are offered by the company along with free demos.
