Halotea is an application that creates a sound atmosphere for different moments and purposes. By combining nature and binaular sounds, the application can recreate an ambience that helps you relax, focus, meditate, or simply refresh your mind.
Halotea looks basically like a music player; its compact interface is intuitive and has a pleasant design. In the Environment tab, you will find the list with all the sound themes available. Themes are essentially sets of audio files arranged according to their purpose, which combine binaural sounds with ambient noises of nature like rain, storm, wind, fire, the sea, etc. Among them, you will find themes for meditation, brain refreshing, sleep induction, hypnosis, and more. Choosing a theme is all you need to get the app started; you can then adjust the volume and balance of each particular sound as you wish.
In difference with the standard and Lite versions, Halotea Free comes with preset sound themes, and it's not possible to combine them in order to create your own. Nonetheless, this version includes a scheduler that will remind you of any events that you create, and an audio player with playlist support, ten-band equalizer, which gives you the possibility of adjusting the echo and reverberation levels.
In short, if you are looking for an app that creates a soothing atmosphere to meditate or relax after a day of intense stress, Halotea is an excellent alternative. The basic version is completely free, without ads, and works in all versions of Windows.
