Cool Software: Atmoshere Lite / Atmosphere Deluxe-
Nature sounds you can customize!
This is a wonderful piece of software for those looking for the
ultimate nature recording and therapists who desire to customize nature recordings for the setting and based on client preference.
All of the paramaters can be controlled, from the frequency each sound occurs, to the level of each sound in the mix. Best
of all, each recording is ROYALTY FREE, for use in relaxation recordings, presentations, and other uses. You can save
different scenarios and/or you can put your customized "atmosphere" on a CD or send to an MP3 player. Atmosphere
Lite is FREE. Atmosphere Deluxe has a free trail download that lasts for 21 days. Registering to purchase the software costs
$30.00. You also then go to their web-site and download more sounds. For $10.00 a year, Lite users can also download many
plug-ins and sounds. Company also makes audio masking and tinitus masking software which I have yet to evaluate. I'll let
you know when I have tried them.

If you are interested in learning to play the Cedar flute, you should
visit this site. In my therapy practice, in my recordings, and in my performances, I use a wide variety of Cedar flutes and
other flutes from around the world. It is usually very difficult to find a flute-maker who consistently makes easily
playable flutes. I highly recommend High Spirits flutes for quality and playability.

Amplified Listener ("Pocket Talker")
This can be a valuable tool for those with certain hearing impairments
when listening to music or conversing. This listening device amplifies sound in the room very clearly and has a variety of
settings to accomodate each listener. The device connects to any pair of stereo headphones with a 1/8th inch plug. I
use two of these in my practice and have been very pleased with the results. Click on the address below for more information.

products free of charge in this national directory.
