Hey everyone! Adam here from Brain.fm. I made the MusicAI-algorithm-thingie that generates all the music on Brain.fm. Aside from that I've been doing brain-oriented stuff around music for around 13 years. Happy to answer any questions! Also we are literally minutes away from releasing our Focus study that we did with Northwestern's Giovanni Santostasi. Spoiler: we beat caffeine. by a lot.

@brainfmadam Loving it so far. Very slick! By "personalized brainwave training programs" - does that mean you personalize the music/sounds for each person, and if so how?

@alangarrec @brainfmadam And Brain.fm loves you back! So, here's the short version - email me for more info of course :) That questionnaire you got at the beginning tells a lot about what will work best for you. People are remarkably different. What energizes you may sedate the next guy. From a technical perspective, the MusicAI, as we're calling it, can generate hundreds of original pieces of music autonomously. The only limit is the machine that it's on. So, we are able to rapidly adapt to the data we're getting. And, we learned enough in the initial closed-beta cycle that we can cache a few hundred pieces of music on the server so that new users get that "A-Ha!" moment without having to wait for music to generate. It's a cool process - we're super proud of it. And it'll get soo much better as times goes by. That's the nature of the game here. Speaking of that, a major update is coming soon. Stay tuned ;)

@jittarao bought it on appsumo the other day. Been using since. It's good.
Share
@benjamineevans @jittarao Yes. As a new but immediately loyal Brain.fm user I'd love to see a well-designed, performant native version of the app.

@michalnaka @brainfmadam I just learned about Brain.fm from PH, and would also like to buy the lifetime access deal that was offered to AppSumo users, the AppSumo deal is now expired. Adam, any chance you can set up a special deal for the lifetime access for PH users? Thanks!
Share
Alexandru ChirițescuI can has product?
@chad_fullerton @michalnaka just bought the lifetime access through AppSumo, so I guess the deal was reactivated? It was a little bit weird that on the claim page of AppSumo it said to claim the account until 1/1/2016, but everything worked perfectly. @brainfmadam Looking forward to apps for Android and maybe Mac (so I could use keyboard shortcuts). Feels great as far as I tried it until now! Thanks!

Got this the other day as part of the AppSumo deal as well. I'm addicted. One point of feedback - I wish the cycles went longer than 30 minutes. I always seem to snap out of the zone when the music stops and end up having to re-focus. There is probably science behind the sessions only being 30 minutes, but figured I would mention it anyways. Can't wait for the app and keep up the good work!

@clinjar Glad to hear you're lovin it! We have time options coming very soon i.e. 1 hour, 2 hours, etc. It's a feature we want ourselves :)

@clinjar Hi Clint! Time options are on my docket today actually. Hope to get to it :) The science does point to shorter sessions. If I recall correctly, 23 minutes is supposed to be the ideal time to sit and relax, but our data points to around 15 minutes given the additional stimulation. But, most meditators like yourself want much more. I've often wondered if the medium itself influenced the amount of time people feel they should meditate. Who wants to buy a CD with only 23 minutes on it, right? But it really is hurting people by giving them such a high barrier to entry. We're hoping to change that. Among other things. haha. Thanks again!

So gutted I missed the Appsumo deal. While I'm not ready to spend the full asking price for a year (I listen to alot of shoegaze which oddly enough sound just like Brain.fm's music) I would've snapped up that deal. @brainfmadam any plans on creating a new deal similar to the AppSumo price point?

we introduced this into the office, and now everyone uses it. it's perfect for open floor plan offices where you need to listen to something to be able to block out the noise, but you don't want to listen to distracting music. great stuff @jkalmadi!

This was linked in the daily e-mail that AppSumo sent me today and it seems like a pretty interesting concept. We all know that music can elicit certain moods, and the science behind it apparently has to do with the way that the music triggers certain brain activity. My understanding is the guys behind Brain.fm have taken some research into using music to trigger certain states and have productised it into Brain.fm. The idea that an algorithmically generated piece of music could trigger a state of intense concentration is super fascinating to me!

@rossdcurrie Hey Ross! Thanks for posting this on PH. And I'm glad someone finds all this as interesting as I do. We're about to release a blog where I'll be talking all about how it's done. Can't wait!

Listening to focused now - will see how long it lasts.

Started using it today, and can already feel an increase in motivation and productivity and I listen to the focus track! Awesome job :D! Wish I was able to snag that AppSumo discount for the lifetime version :'(

Started using Brain.fm when we featured it on AppSumo, it's really the first "sound for focus / relaxation" that I've used and haven't thought it was BS--I actually notice it working. One thing that would be great is adjustable times. If I could run it on a Pomodoro cycle that would be even better :)

@nateliason I've done a bit of experimentation with that actually! When you have control over the audio, and know fairly precisely what the user will want at what time, you can do some really cool things with these productivity methods. Focus them exactly when they need it most, relaxation when it is needed.. not to mention positive reinforcement. The audio versions of Seth Robert's "Magic Dots" were my favorite By the way, please send my most sincere thanks to you and the whole team there. :)
