Breathing Tone Feedback in Mind-Body Training Tools Software
Breathing tone feedback is a feature common to several of the Mind-Body Training Tools applications. It is designed to convey information in a context of mindfulness, especially mindfulness of breathing - to enhance focus on the breath rather than distract from it.
A tone is played which follows the breath. The pitch gently ascends and descends in pitch for each inhalation / exhalation respectively. (Each breath has a relatively narrow range in pitch.) The tone sounds during the movement of the breath, and falls silent at the turning points.
At an overarching level, the pitch varies with the selected feedback parameter. For example in the breathing application, you can set the breathing tone feedback to track breathing rate. If your breathing speeds up (perhaps when you've become distracted) the tone will rise in pitch.Download Free Mind-Body Training Tools Trial
