I tried listening to BGM
I tried playing BGM which is actually prepared. I tried playing the genre of "Focus" → "Relaxed". Before the regeneration, it is recommended that people who have symptoms of seizures or epilepsy, those who are pregnant, those who use cardiac pacemakers refrain from using, or doctors' advice Notice such as "to ask for" is displayed, so click "ACCEPT (acknowledgment)" if there is no problem.
Then the data is read and the playback screen is displayed. On the screen are advised such as "to use earphones and headphones", "to listen to when doing work, reading, creative work", and expectable content "All sessions are designed to be effective soon "" There is a comment that "Effects will last even after listening" was written.
On the screen during playback, the slowly flowing waveform and quotes left by great men are being displayed one after another.
Although the impression of BGM played here is a relaxed relaxed tone, the consciousness is moved by the periodic sound which is heard from time to time, and it seems that it is drawn into the world of sound mysteriously. I was relieved like environmental musicPad soundSometimes a tone like a guitar, a violin, a piano appears, and a sound that feels a certain chord and a chord flows, but chord progression like popular music and a strong rhythm such as a drum are engraved there is no.
Also, when you listen carefully, you can hear sounds that include periodic sounds or pulsed sounds like "pops-up" in the sound, which is accentuated as a feeling of shaking consciousness Sometimes it was. There seems to be some ingenuity in the mix of sounds, the sound spreading in stereo gradually changes to monaural, "Auto Pan" in which the sound reciprocates left and right with a cycle of about 3 seconds is incorporated in the mix Scene as well.
Especially when the sound image gathers between the eyebrows changing from stereo to monaural, consciousness is gathered according to the sound, and the relaxation is felt by spreading the sound image afterwards, a kind of "Massage effect of consciousnessSometimes I had a sense like " If you close your eyes and listen to the sound with earphones or headphones, you may unexpectedly get sucked into the world of consciousness, so that the notice that "get advice of a doctor" at the beginning is not only a form It was contents that made me feel. Although similar sound sources are played in other categories such as "Relax" and "Sleep", I felt that there was a difference in the tone of the tone and the atmosphere of the chord, respectively.
When the session ends, it says "Amazing!" "Worked", "Kind of", "Did not work", "Not sure" We will conduct a 5-point evaluation. This is not mere review evaluation, but to accumulate responses of individuals to provide feedback to the next, so it is better for you to think and answer carefully.
Because personalization is customized, you will be asked to create an account here. Click "Let's do it!" On the screen.
Then you will be asked to answer Yes / No to items like psychological tests. It seems that answering an item of "Focus (concentration)" "Anxiety (anxiety)" "Mood", "Stress (stress / tension)" "Sleep" is a premise of use If you do not want to answer, unfortunately it may be better to avoid using it. The first "Focus"Answer to the item of" weak attention "," get distracted immediately "," not good at order ".
"Anxiety"Answers to the item of" I am irritated immediately "" I am unforgiving "" I feel excessive unease. " Some people will draw a bit on the real content.

As impressions I listened to for a while, I received impression that it was easier to focus than I am listening to pop music, easy listening, ambient music. However, because there are individual differences, these also do not fit, it seems that people who seemed to be "effective" by using the chance of audition seven times and looking at the paid version are good.
