Hi, I have read the articles, and started with MP3 files of "notched" Enya songs, which seemed to help, but not anything very striking. So I roped my daughter in to help out. she used her Mac, with Audacity, and not MP3 files, but FLAC files. She then used "dynamic compression" to increase the level of the quiet notes, and cut down the peak loudest notes. This results in smoothing of the audio. Now some songs are louder than others, so she used the dB function to make the quieter songs louder and the louder songs quieter. Finally I had a file of Enya songs. By now I am pretty discouraged, but anyway nothing has worked up till this point, so why give up now? Friday night was the first night. I used a Yamaha blue ray player to play the FLAC files - a normal MP3 player will not work. The Yamaha was set at repeat, so away we go. On Saturday morning, there was a hint of impovement - the tinnitus was not so intrusive. So Saturday night is the next test: I went to be early (like 6 p.m.), and then drifted off, thanks to heavy meds etc. The next thing, I seemed to be in a twilight, and the tinnitus had clearly changed from a high pitched scream, to a shimmering high pitch. so I think to myself: maybe my brain is rewiring. then the next shock - i go to the bathroom, and see the clock is at 7 o'clock - and i think - What? did i just sleep 1 hour? or did i sleep 13 hours???? so i checked my p.c. for the correct time, and sure enough, i actually slept for 13 hours straight. The tinnitus has a much less intrusive character to it, and i feel totally great, like finally i have got some decent sleep, and it was entirely due to "modified music therapy". in addition to the music, i play Restful Rain CD on constant repeat, and a small white noise generator, to provide a constant hiss sound in the bedroom, to fill in between music tracks. the music is set very quietly so i can just hear it, and the Restful Rain is also set quiet, so that I can hear the tinnitus and Rain at the same time, about the same level, but always making sure the Rain is not too loud. i am just so pleased, finally i am getting better. and something real and measurable has taken place, so it is not true that "nothing can be done".
