SINE Isochronic Entrainer is a Free and Open Source Brainwave Entrainment application for PC, Android, and HTML5.

The effect is not permanent, and fades away in less than a minute after the stimuli is removed.

Unlike binaural beats, isochronic tones can be played on speakers. The Player supports touchscreens and high resolution displays. Includes a graphical editor for making presets, with a manual.
