Online HTML5 Whitenoise Generator – PlayNoise

playnoise-screenshot

This is pretty cool. PlayNoise.com offers a free HTML5 online whitenoise generator. It looks like it uses OGG Vorbis or MP3 samples, unlike some other online whitenoise generators out there which generate the whitenoise pragmatically. Regardless, it’s a neat minimalist page with a very functional whitenoise generator on it.  The HTML5 app also supports other noise variations such as pink noise and brown noise.

The difference between the three noise variations is minimal, but there is a noticeable difference.  White noise is completely random signals, while both brown and pink noise use a mathematical formula.  Wikipedia has a great explanation of the three noise variants here.

Beats Brainwave (available for iPhone and BlackBerry Playbook) is a binaural beats generator that also supports white, pink and brown noise for stimulating improved concentration.  See more about binaural beats and white noise generation here.  Alternatively, we also have an online binaural beats generator that also supports white noise, pink noise and brown noise.

Binaural Beats Versus Isochronic Tones

Audio therapy quite often uses various forms of beats or pulsing audio tones. There are several ways to create these tones. Two popular ways to produce the audio pulse are via Binaural Beats or Isochronic Tones. Let’s describe the differences between these tow.

Binaural Beats

Binaural Beats are a perceived audio beat or pulse, created due to the inability of the brain to correctly process the minimal frequency difference between two different sine or square waves in each ear. That’s a mouthful. But it is important to note that a key difference with Ishchronic Tones is that binaural beats have no breaks of silence. Each tone is continuously playing in each ear. Because the tones are playing, exclusively, in each ear and have a very small difference in frequency, the brain cannot properly mix the two signals and instead creates the perception that there is actually a beat playing. Additionally, the illusion of Binaural Beats is only created when listening to the tones with stereo headphones. When listening to them over speakers, the brain can properly mix the signals and thus no beat perception is realized.

Here is a view of a right and left ear stereo wave showing that there is no gaps in a Binaural Beats audio sample. The two individual channels have minimally different sine waves and this difference in frequency, and the fact that they are listened to over headphones, is what causes the brain to perceive a beating noise.

Isochronic Tones

Isochronic Tones, on the other hand, are created by specifically interleaving gaps of audio and silence. By doing this, Isochronic Tone pulses can be experienced over speakers (single or multi-channel) and headphones. This is likely the primary reason why Isochronic Tones are a more popular way to explore the meditative effects of audio therapy with audio pulses. The gaps of silence are positioned at specific frequencies. Like the various frequencies of Binaural Beats, these frequencies often correspond to brainwave activity at various levels of engagement (sleep through focus, for example).isochronic-tone-sine-sample

Here is a view of an Isochronic Tone wave. Notice the interleaving of silence throughout the sine wave.

Regardless of which audio pulse you prefer or use, there is really no clear indication that audio therapy can actually help synchronize the brainwaves. However there is no consensus otherwise. Substantial anecdotal evidence suggests that both Binaural Beats and Isochronic Tones can have a meditative effect and assist in relaxation when combined with relaxing background noise such as whitenoise or tranquil audio loops. Research also exists that correlates the use of Binaural Beats with increased relaxation and focus.

What are Binaural Beats?

Before I can get into what binaural beats are, let’s talk about sound.

Sound occurs as waves. When sound waves reach the ear, the eardrum vibrates and the vibrations are decoded as sound by the brain. A sound wave has peaks and valleys, just like a ripple of water. The number of peaks and valleys that occur in the sound wave per second is referred to as the frequency and is measured in Hz (Hertz).

The greater the frequency (more peaks and valleys per second), the higher the sound. A whistle, for example, would have a high frequency. Deep bass would have a very low sound frequency.

Binaural Beats?

Binaural Beats is the perception of a subtle beating or pulse sound when both ears are exposed to two different audio tones at minimally differing frequencies, over headphones. The Beat refers to the subsonic frequency difference between the tone in the left ear and the tone in the right ear. For example, if the left ear is exposed to 120Hz and the right ear is exposed to 110Hz, the Beat frequency is 10Hz. By subsonic, I mean that this 10Hz frequency would otherwise be completely imperceptible as a sound on its own.

How do Binaural Beats affect brain activity?

Brain activity can be measured electrically, via EEG (Electroencephalography), also as waves. The more active the brain, the higher the brainwave frequency. If very alert, for example, you would be in a high brainwave frequency state. If sleeping or in deep relaxation, your brainwave frequency would be quite low.

Introducing Brainwave Entrainment

Brainwave Entrainment (sometimes called brainwave synchronization), is attempting to intentionally cause brainwaves to move to a specific frequency. This is purportedly possible by exposing the sensory system to an external stimulus such as sound. Unfortunately, sound operating at frequencies in a range similar to that of brainwaves would not be perceptible to human hearing. But we can, instead, take advantage of the binaural beats phenomenon.

Alter your State of Mind

The purpose of attempting brainwave entrainment is to bring one’s conscious into a preferred state. For example, during deep meditation, an individual may want their mind to be optimally primed for relaxation. By exposing the auditory cortex to binaural beats at the proper frequencies (delta range), one can potentially move their brainwaves to fall in sync and assist bringing the mind into a relaxed state. Similarly, a student wishing to focus on finishing some homework may wish to expose themselves to a stimulus in the gamma frequency range, eliciting a brainwave synchronization response, assisting their effort to focus on the task at hand.

Various named frequency ranges occur when the brain is in certain states. The following table shows these ranges and what mental states they typically indicate.
