This is a cute little binaural beats generator - not just for a single frequency, but harmonics of a base frequency and multiples 1 thru 10. Will probably improve it eventually, but it served its purpose for a piece and comes in handy for shows when I need some pure bass or mid frequency beats~

Base Frequency controls the fundamental frequency.

Harmonic Amp faders (red) change the volume of each harmonic 1-10. You can see the frequency for each harmonic underneath each red fader.

Beating speed is 1 through 32 (plus or minus)

Each Harmonic can have its own LFO controlling amplitude.

Master Volume (self explanatory)

Slew Time is a great functions for slow drones - it allows you to change parameters but the changes happen over time (0.01 to 10 seconds). So, for instance you can change the volume of one of the Harmonic Amplitudes, but your slew is 10 seconds, itll take 10 seconds to get to the new setting. The Slew Time knob affects Harmonic Amplitude, Beating Speed, and the Master Volume.

Base Slew is the same as Slew Time but just for the Base Frequency.

Randomize Button for fun :) Does not affect the Master V, Base Slew, and Slew Time knobs.

Master V, Base Slew, and Slew Time knobs are also not saved when you save presets.

How do you import this into Reaktor it keeps telling me "not a valid %1%file"

Nice idea, sounds good, thank you.

it took a long time to be able to appreciate why binaural phenomenon are so cool. your L R channels (ears) are internally phase coupled after routing to the information processing centers in your brain, (just like on a dsp) constantly giving you 3d information about your surroundings

This is such a great idea! I have been trying to use blocks to tap into certain frequencies, but having something like this should work much easier!! for some reason the blocks skip the frequencies I want. Thanks for your creation.

I love this! Especially automating the slews! Only one tiny thing is that I'd like to be able to set amp slider by dragging my mouse along horizontally and wherever it hits it gets set instead of having to click on each one. When it gets near the bottom, its kinda hard to click in the right place to raise the bar. I see uses for this in the music I do. thank you!
