SaschArt has introduced GoldenGenerator, a freeware binaural/monaural beats generator available as a 32-bit and 64-bit VST plugin for Windows-based digital audio workstations.
I’ve reviewed quite a few plugins in my day, but have never run across one that claimed you could use it for “astral projection” or “out of body experiences”. I’m intrigued.
The free GoldenGenerator uses what is known as the “golden number” to generate waveforms and binaural/monaural beats. This number expressed mathematically is a ratio of two numbers that is equal to the sum of the two numbers divided by the larger of the two numbers.
Looked at from another perspective, it is ” a/b = (a+b) / a ” assuming that “a” is the larger number. It is called “golden” because the ratio shows up quite often, for example in the Fibonacci sequence, or as spirals and other patterns in nature.
GoldenGenerator uses this ratio to create sound waves and binaural beats. A binaural beat is somewhat like an optical illusion for your ears created by two clashing frequencies. When each frequency is panned hard left and right, a third frequency that is perceived is known as a “beat”. According to some people, listening to these beats can induce certain brain waves and alter consciousness.
Seems complicated and a little “out there”? Well, it is. Still, the authors of this plugin have included presets for you to test out easily and see if the concept works for you.
GoldenGenerator is available for free download via SaschArt (444 KB download size, ZIP archive, 32-bit & 64-bit VST plugin format for Windows).
