Picture of Make Binaural Beats With Audacity

Awhile back I was looking online to download some binaural beats to help me study but I found that most of them weren't free or had background music mixed in. I, personally, find that the background music can be distracting while I'm working so I decided to make my own binaural beats.

Binaural beats can be useful for many different reason. They have been found to help study, meditate, and even boost creativity levels. Without going to far in depth, binaural beats are the resulting pitch created in your mind when two pure tones are played in each ear. The goal is to have your minds current brainwave state match the frequency created by the binaural beats. So what does that mean? Say your mind is in a very active or stressed state. If measured, many Alpha or Beta waves would be found on an EEG. Using binaural beats, however, one can potentially lower their brainwave state to something more relaxed.

Step 1: Download Audacity

I have the same problem as Sara.l.moors, i don't have "Mono>Left channel>Right Channel" can anyone explain how to get this to show?
Hey there I figured it out ! ^_^
Just go to Tracks > Add New > Mono Track
then generate your beats afterwards within those Mono Tracks you created!

The dropdown menu is different and I don't know how to assign the tracks to left and right. I'm assuming this is different than "pan to left/right" on the track itself?

The newer versions of audacity don't have the option, the one i found that works is the 2.0.6 on fosshub
