fade sleep dream

Normally $1.99.

fade sleep dream gently fades out the music while you drift off into blissful sleep.

If falling asleep to music is familiar to you do you ever notice the volume becoming louder as your ears become more sensitive? The fader should balance this out as you drift off into deeper sleep.

fade sleep dream is a multifader so you can fade in and fade out any amount of volume on a per minute interval up to 24 hours. Set an all night sequence to gently fall into deep sleep and then gently wake yourself up in the morning before the alarm goes off.

Long ago I used to fall asleep to music playing on a tape recorder. Bit annoying that the stopping tape would always wake me up. Technology rules :)

If you catch the train to work regularly on average the journey time should be reasonably predictable so set the fade timer and have a blissful journey away from all the morning noise.
Preconfigured sequences:

– Night time deep sleep
– Deep sleep and wake
– Short microsleep
– Train journey sleep
– Plane journey sleep
Create sequences of up to 24 hours with any combination of fade events on per minute boundaries.

Constant fade events or stepped fade events. A constant fade will gently reduce the volume with generated events, eg. to go from 100% to 0% in 5 minutes there will actually be 100 events of -1% with one every 3 seconds. A stepped fade will persist the volume until the event boundary.

Stop or continue playback at the final volume level.

By purchasing this software you take sole responsibility for due care in setting volume levels which will not cause harm.

This software does not claim to provide benefits for any medical condition.

No music is supplied with this software. You must select songs from your existing music collection stored in the iPod app.
