Memorization Study Aid (Ambient Rhythm) – Isochronic Tones

Subscribe to my channel and be updated with my latest tracks:

Mp3 versions are available in 7 different background sound options: Ambient Rhythm (the one from this video), Ambient, Classical Chill, Light Relax, Orchestral, Whimsical Ambience and a ‘Just Tones’ version. Each version uses the same isochronic tones frequencies but combined with a different background track for more variety and to suit your mood and personal preferences.

To make the most from your studying don’t focus on the time you invest. Focus on the quality of your study session over the quantity you do. This is one of the key things we focus on and we absolutely think you can get twice the results in half the time. Make sure you grab the free audiobook Unlimited Memory by a chess grandmaster which will absolutely transform your results overnight if you apply the techniques.

This 3-hour isochronic tones track is for use over a longer study period, to help you memorize what you are studying/revising. Once you have mastered and understood the material you are learning, you can use this to help improve your ability to memorize and recall that information, by revising and absorbing it while in a heightened Alpha state.

How does the track work?

The track stimulates your brainwaves to increase the activity of the 10.2 Hz frequency in Alpha. Beta is the frequency range you would normally be experiencing while awake and alert during the daytime, and Alpha is a more relaxed state just below that.

When you are in an Alpha mental state you become and feel more relaxed. It is theorized that while in this relaxed state, you gain a more direct route to your subconscious mind, where your brain stores and files information for recall later on.

This session is based on a memory recognition study in 2006 by Jonathan Williams, Deepa Ramaswamy and Abderrahim Oulhaj. The study participants were stimulated with a range of different Alpha frequencies. The results peaked at the 10.2 Hz frequency, where participants outperformed the control group in memory recognition by 15%.

How is this session constructed?

This isochronic tones session begins beating at 10.2Hz in Alpha, where it holds for 6 minutes. It then ramps up sharply to 12Hz at the bottom of Beta, where it holds for 2 minutes, before ramping back down to 10.2Hz again and repeating the cycle.

The main focus of the track is on boosting your Alpha brainwave activity, but I’ve also included periodic short bursts of low Beta stimulation, to help keep your concentration levels up and prevent you from getting too relaxed and drifting off.

How to use it?

Listen to this track with your eyes open while reading and studying.

Headphones are NOT required

Although headphones are not required you may find them useful to block out external distraction, especially if you are studying in a noisy environment.

This track is suitable for listening to at any time during the daytime or evening while you are awake, but it is not designed to be listened to while you are asleep.

How loud should the volume be?

The main thing to consider is that it should be loud enough to hear the repetitive isochronic tones, so you don’t want it so quiet you can hardly hear them. But you also don’t want it so loud that its uncomfortable for you and hurts your ears, or gives you a headache. I’d recommend starting with the volume around half way and adjust it to a level that you feel comfortable with from there.

  • It’s finals week and I stood up and explained to the kids what it is I’m playing as I grade papers and they study. Thanks for doing this. I ask the students to study in 20 minute segments with 4 minute breaks: 20 (4) 20 (4) 20 (30). At the 30 minute break they are to get up and go do something else, to change how the brain is functioning. I usually advise something they enjoy doing.

  • +Claire Obrien – Hi Claire, there isn’t an optimum volume level I can recommend because everyone’s audio equipment is so different, and it also depends on your personal preference. The stimulation can feel stronger with the volume higher, but it can also become more distracting. So I usually advise starting it around the half way mark and adjusting up or down from there, to where you find it comfortable to listen to.

  • This is amazing! It’s on par with a really great piano music video that I had but doesn’t lure me to sleep. It’s like my brain is in this exciting video game where studying is the fun gameplay. I can focus and stay motivated pretty well.

  • Out of all the study videos that I have searched for. I find this one to be my favorite! Thank you so much! It helps so much!

  • I don’t really understand how isochronics (or binural beats, etc.) work but this track especially helps me to focus so much when I’m studying! I’ve experimented with other ambient music and this one really resonates with me for some reason. Doesn’t make me sleepy like meditation music, and doesn’t distract me like piano music. Thank you!

  • 20 minutes in and I haven’t even realized the time going by. I want to think it might be the placebo effect in play but I’m pumped up and memorizing my bio notes a lot faster than usual. Whatever the Alpha and Beta frequency ranges are, it’s working for my last minute cram studying and I can’t thank you more!
