MONAURAL PLAYBACK

New Monaural is a music player app which has a special monaural playback functionality. It allows you to enjoy natural-sounding music even if listening stereo track through a single side of your headphones.

While this feature does function as a stereo to monaural converter, it differs from typical monaural conversion in that it mixes the left and right channels within a sound space to reproduce the balance which those with unilateral hearing loss experience when listening to music normally (without headphones).

Of course, regular stereo playback is possible as well. The app can be used as a typical music player.

ANALYTICS

LR Concordance Rates of the songs that have been analyzed by the app are collected by the service, and the statistics can be viewed on the Analytics screen of the app. Everybody's cooperation is needed to collect data.

If the "Share Analysis automatically" setting is turned on, the LR Concordance Rates are automatically analyzed while songs are being played on the app and shared to the server for the service.
