PROTEUS Light and Sound Machine
PROTEUS Light and Sound Machine

The PROTEUS™ is a revolutionary new light and sound product that combines our innovative BiColor™ stimulation technology—another MindPlace first. Developed with the serious experimenter in mind, Proteus includes a host of powerful programming capabilities.

Features include:

  • Realtime BiColor™ output. Proteus includes two independent color channels, each of which has its own brightness and pulse rate. This means that Proteus sessions can shift smoothly between up to 4,096 colors in real time, creating extraordinary visuals and mapping colors more precisely to states of consciousness. For example, lower frequencies can be set to soothing green, while higher, energizing frequencies are the appropriate red; the “peak performance” color amber lies in between.
  • Totally programmable. We’ve developed a simple yet powerful Windows 98+ hosted programming tool, available free of charge. You can download it for review by clicking here, or view the documentation here.
  • Totally upgradeable. Proteus uses advanced Flash memory for both session and operating system data. This means that you can not only download new session groups into the system, but also that the entire operating system can be upgraded. Recent upgrades have added include such advanced features as wavetable crossfading; dual binaural beats; BioConnect™ real-time biofeedback control, and more.
  • Wavetable audio. PROTEUS includes stereo audio digital to analog converters, enabling production of binaural beats and other waveforms. You can store up to four different waveforms in Proteus, and we include an audio waveform creation tool with the bundled software.
  • Enhanced AudioStrobe™. We’ve fine-tuned our AudioStrobe decoder circuitry, providing a much crisper, more intense experience.
  • 199 program capacity. Proteus ships with expanded versions of the best programs taken from our earlier products (especially Orion and MindLab). A total of fifty programs are preloaded into Proteus when you receive it. Plus, there is plenty of space remaining for you download your own creations—about 2,000 segments altogether in two separate banks.
  • Free Proteus Editor software. Unlike other manufacturers, we don’t charge for our software—you can just download the latest version of Proteus Editor from the Proteus support site. Choose from a host of programmable features, including:
    • Single or dual binaural beats
    • Create and download your own audio wavetables
    • Synchronize the two color channels or run them at completely different frequencies
    • Control the lights and sound in real time using our ThoughtStream biofeedback system
    • Create “random” programs within constraints you choose (for example, frequencies constrained to 9-12 hz and segment lengths of 1 to 3 seconds).
    • Frequencies range from 0.2 to 50.0 hz—best in the industry
    • Plus much more.

If you're looking for an advanced light and sound system but don’t want to pay $349 for a heavy metal case, chances are the Proteus will do most everything you want it to.

Your PROTEUS package includes:

  • Attractive, compact Proteus Control Console
  • Superbright Ruby/Emerald Liteframes
  • Stereo headphones and audio patchcord
  • Concise Manual
  • Audiostrobe sampler CD
  • Proteus Editor software and user manual (via download)

Note: System requires 3 x AA alkaline batteries, not included. 110 volt (USA) and 220 volt (Europe) AC power adapters, Ruby/Sapphire and PureWhite™ LiteFrames available as options.

Notes:

(1)  Sirius includes programs created by Dr. Hans Bittner, based upon his research at the University of Essen.  Proteus includes  many of the highly acclaimed programs from our earlier MindLab, Courier and MasterMind series of machines.   In addition, all Proteus programs are stored in "flash" reprogrammable memory, so you can replace any or all of them as you see fit--a total of 1,500 segments altogether. 

(2)  We are committed to adding new features to Proteus--always for free--you just download them from our website to your PC, then into Proteus.  You'll never need to buy a new mind machine!

(3)  This program is different every time you run it. Proteus Editor’s Randomize function takes this a step further, allowing you to define limits to segment length, frequency, etc., then automatically creates as many random segments as you wish. So your random program may (for example) remain within the alpha range, with segments between 2 and 5 seconds.

(4)  You can set your own light/sound pulse rate in real time.

(5)  Exclusive!  Proteus can control two different colors simultaneously, each with its own brightness and frequency settings.  Over 250 color combinations produce a startling array of visuals and the broadest range of mood shifts of any light/sound technology on the market.  (Patent pending.)  

(6)  Proteus includes a serial connect cable with a DB9 connector so you can use any Windows 98+ PC to create, edit, form session libraries and download them into Proteus. 

(7)  Binaural beats are produced by playing two sine waves at slightly different frequencies in stereo headphones--an additional entrainment feature.  

(8)  AudioStrobe is a technique which embeds light control signals on compact discs (more than 30 titles are available).  Both systems include decoders, but Proteus is the only one with fully active control circuity--for crisper, perfectly synchronized lights and audio program.

(9)  ColorPulse™ converts the beat of music into pulsing light patterns, while MicroPulse does the same thing with the built-in Orion microphone.

(10)  BioConnect™ allows such parameters as pulse rate, color brightness, binaural beat frequency, etc.  to be controlled via biofeedback (such as ThoughtStream).  The most powerful way to experience light and sound! 

(11)  Light/sound pulse rates currently available.  Proteus has the broadest range available anywhere on the market today.
