Nova Pro 100 features
100 Built-in sessions - Nova Pro 100 is packed with programs to satisfy every desire! Relaxation, entertainment, learning, sleep & more. Sessions are organized in 8 categories: relax, meditate, sleep, learn, energize, visualize, entertain and special. Sessions are selected by selecting a category then a session within the category (so you don't have to wade through 100 sessions every time). In any category, the selection process proceeds through the built-in sessions, then through any downloaded sessions in that category.
Download capability - room for 100 downloaded sessions (or a total of 1000 session segments).
How it works - downloaded sessions are given a category at download time, a single download can be 1 to 25 sessions in any one category. The downloaded session index is automatically reorganized to keep the sessions sorted in the intended categories, no matter what the order of download.
AudioStrobe compatible - AudioStrobe* (licensed from Tamas Laboratories) is a registered Trademark of Tamas Laboratories in Germany, who holds the German patent on the technology.
How it works - signals are recorded on a music CD at a high, inaudible frequency, to control the lights in a light/sound system. An AudioStrobe decoder detects these signals and uses them to drive the lights of a light/sound system, absolutely in sync with the music. AudioStrobe CDs are available from Tools for Exploration (1-800-456-9887) and other sources. Just connect your CD player to the external input of the Nova Pro 100, and play the CD, with your headphones and glasses connected to the Nova Pro 100 normally, for an amazing AudioStrobe experience. For best results, do this while no session is running on the Nova Pro 100.
Session run time - a session may be run at 1/2 to 2 (in steps of 1/4) times its designed time. The 3 digit display can display up to 4 hours of run time; however, downloaded sessions may be designed to run much longer than this -- the maximum possible run time is over 100 days.
Pitch - Nova Pro 100 pitch is extended two octaves at the low end, to 16 hertz (a total of 14 new pitches). The total pitch range is 16Hz to 960Hz, 6 octaves of the just scale, 7 notes/octave. Also, the pitch 2 relative to pitch 1 mode is extended to cover P1 minus 1 to 15 hertz, as well as the P1 plus 1 to 15 hertz provided on the Nova Pro. The low frequencies have a very powerful effect with the standard headphones, for even stronger effects you can use more expensive headphones. We have used the Sony MDR-V6, available at around $79.00, with good results .
Frequency range - stimulation frequency on the Nova Pro 100 was extended downward by two octaves, from one hertz to 1/4 hertz. There also are three new frequencies, 3/4, 1/2 and 1/4 hertz (only three frequencies, but it is two octaves). Frequencies go in steps of 1/4 hertz through 2 hertz, 1/2 hertz through 10 hertz, 1 hertz through 20 hertz and 2 hertz through 42 hertz. The Schumann resonance at 7.83 hertz is also included.
Duty cycle, Phase - duty cycle control from 1/8 to 7/8 in steps of 1/8 is provided. There are six selectable phasing relationships between the four stimulation channels (two eyes, two ears) in the pulsed tones. Light phase is also controllable in the binaural beat modes.
Tone selection - there are
7 sound tones, utilizing the two frequencies F1 and F2 and pitches P1 and
Two user ports - ports for two simultaneous users (Headphone/glasses combinations are available at a special price for the second user). The drive circuitry handles the second user with no degradation from one user performance.
Four system control choices - Nova Pro 100 synthesized stimulation can be controlled by a selected built-in session or downloaded session, manually from the keyboard, or remotely via a COM port connection from a computer. When the system is in manual mode it accepts commands from both the keyboard and the COM port.
Ramps (gradual changes in frequency and pitch -- yes, we ramp pitch) can now be commanded in the manual mode, from the keyboard or the COM port. Specify a ramp time (up to 10 minutes), specify the target frequencies and pitches (two of each in the dual binaural beat and dual monaural beat tones), and command the ramp to start. The frequency and pitch display follows the ramp to three digit accuracy or to 1/8 hertz as it progresses.
Microphone input - with volume control is provided for voiceover during a session. A balanced input amplifier with 1% resistors for noise cancellation accepts dynamic mikes, or electret mikes with their own power source, with 1/8 inch mono connectors. We have used the Radio Shack 33-2001A dynamic mike, and the 33-1060 electret mike with good results.
Gentle on/gentle off - sessions start with a gradual volume and intensity ramp up to selected levels, and end with a gentle ramp down to off.
Battery saving - automatic
shutdown with user disable is provided
New glasses drive circuit - provides positive control over the current through the glasses, four circuits for the right and left sides for the two pairs of glasses, with 1% resistors for current matching. The Nova Pro 100 glasses polarity is "CG" (for common ground).
The Nova Pro feature of providing a constant voltage charging circuit to protect the battery is continued on the Nova Pro 100. The AC adapter can be connected permanently without damaging the battery. The AC adapter input is protected against voltage reversal (if an adapter with negative tip is connected accidentally), and against a short time accidental connection of a higher voltage adapter up to 26 volts. A 9 volt AC Adapter with 300 milliampers of current capacity, positive inside 2.1 mm connector is provided. A 2.5 mm connector will also work, and a higher current rating is OK. Higher voltage adapters connected to the Nova Pro 100 for a long time however, will overheat the input regulator and may eventually burn it out.
What you get
System unit, 1 pair of stimulation glasses, 1 pair of Pro headphones, AC adapter, computer cable, Light/Sound Designer disc, free Light/Sound Librarian software and additional session libraries to download from this web site, stereo cord, manual, packaged in a roomy shoulder strap carrying bag, with four fitted compartments that keep all items separate with plenty of room to add glasses and headphones in a convenient way. One year warranty.
220 AC adapter Note
The Nova Pro 100 is also available with 220AC Adapter (the Continental European version only). Ordering with this AC Adapter will add $5.00 to your cost. When ordering without an AC Adapter $5.00 will be deducted from your cost (you will need to purchase a 9V 300-500 ma with the "positive inside" adapter).
